Dress Code

Shipboard attire ranges from casual to informal. Casual wear is appropriate for daytime aboard ship or ashore, and consists of standard sports outfits as worn at five-star resorts. Shoes should be non-skid, flat or low heeled for deck activities. Evening attire is casual with the exception of the Captain's Welcome Aboard and Farewell Dinners, which are informal. On casual evenings, open-neck shirts, slacks and sports outfits are appropriate. Jeans and shorts are not permitted in The Restaurant. On informal evenings, women usually wear dresses or trouser suits, and men wear jackets (tie optional). Remember to pack swimwear. 

Clothing Ashore- The right gear is essential for enjoying the full experience of your Silversea Expedition without the limitations of weather and other conditions. Clothing that can be layered to accommodate different temperatures is most versatile and comfortable. When visiting certain sacred sites or attending certain ceremonies, guests should show respect for the local culture by not wearing shorts or skirts above the knee. Women should not show bare shoulders. Visit Silversea's Expedition Gear Shop for a detailed packing list. For guests sailing aboard select Arctic, Antarctic and Chilean Fjords voyages, please be sure to select the size for your complimentary parka.

Special Dietary Requirements

If you have special dietary requirements, Silversea will make every attempt to accommodate your requests. Please advise Silversea of your needs on the Guest Information Form at least 75 days prior to sailing. Notification should be sent to Silversea Special Services Department, 110 East Broward Blvd., Fort Lauderdale, FL 33301 USA.

Age Restrictions

Silversea Cruises' guidelines state that minors under the age of 18 must be accompanied, in the same or connecting suite, by a parent or other responsible adult over the age of 21. If the adult accompanying the minor is not their parent, a parental consent guardianship form must be signed by a parent or legal guardian and received by Silversea prior to sailing. Guests must be 21 years of age or older to purchase or consume alcohol. Silversea reserves the right to refuse to serve anyone who in its sole judgement may be under the influence of alcohol, or for any reason necessary in its judgement to preserve the health and safety of guests and employees.

The Silver Galapagos cannot accommodate children under the age of 6 years. Although Silversea accepts guests over the age of 6 years, there are no special programmes for children on board, and Silversea does not provide for the care, entertainment or supervision of children. Silversea reserves the right to limit the number of children.

In addition, the Zodiacs used for Silversea Expeditions are unable to accommodate children younger than 6 years of age. As Silversea does not provide babysitting services, an adult family member will be required to remain on board the Silver Explorer expedition cruise ship with their child(ren) during Zodiac excursions.

Medical Services

Each Silversea expedition cruise ship is equipped with a Medical Centre, which is customarily staffed by a doctor and nurse on 24-hour call when at sea. When docked, supplementary emergency care may also be obtained through local medical facilities. Guests may be charged for medical services and for medications used for their medical treatment. The Medical Centre is not intended or designed to provide ongoing treatment of pre-existing conditions or for extended critical care, and Silversea is not responsible for the diagnosis, treatment or services furnished by shipboard medical personnel. Guests requiring oxygen for medical reasons are welcome to bring an oxygen concentrator onboard. Guests wishing to bring their own portable oxygen tanks must obtain prior written authorisation from Silversea, as restrictions may apply.

Disabled Facilities

If you have any existing medical condition that may require attention, or should you require oxygen for medical reasons whilst onboard, please send written notification prior to your voyage to Silversea Special Services, 110 East Broward Boulevard, Fort Lauderdale, FL 3330. Please note that an oxygen concentrator is the only form of oxygen equipment that the Silversea expedition cruise ships can accommodate. Guests who rely upon wheelchairs must bring their own. Please note that not all shore excursions are suitable for guests with impaired mobility

Entertainment

The ocean views and soothing sound of the surf can be quite intoxicating at sea, so it’s not surprising that daydreaming on deck is one of the most popular pastimes. However, every Silversea all inclusive cruise also includes a considerable number of more active pursuits — some for the body, some for the mind … and some just for fun.

Piano Bar

Meet and mingle with fellow travellers and your expedition leaders in the Piano Bar, where cocktails are served and views of blue seas and lava-rock landscapes are always on display. Your bartender will quickly learn your favourite drink, but do try one of the local concoctions — a Blue Footed Boobie perhaps. Accompanied by the music of the resident pianist, you can take your afternoon tea here, and enjoy pre-dinner cocktails before an impromptu dinner with new-found friends.

Library

Relaxing in the ship’s library, you can read books about the natural sciences, human history and conservation of the islands, and find maps and charts of this remarkable archipelago that sprawls over 36,000 square miles around the Equator. Here you can also find a choice of contemporary literature and an extensive collection of the classics, test your knowledge with daily quizzes and crosswords, or challenge someone to a game of chess or a board game.

Explorer Lounge

Attend informative lectures, recaps and briefings, and enjoy views of the islands in the Explorer Lounge on Deck 3. Along with a sophisticated AV system, there’s also a small photography station with an IMac where guests can download and edit their photographs during their time on board.
