Silversea has named its line-up of experts for the inaugural voyage of Silver Endeavour, one of the world’s most luxurious expedition ships. Departing round-trip from King George Island this November, she will host qualified historians, marine biologists, anthropologists, naturalists, filmmakers, and more on her maiden voyage, enriching guests’ experiences with lectures, workshops, and excursions as they journey deep into the White Continent. Conrad Combrink, Silversea’s SVP Expedition, Destination and Itinerary Management, will accompany travellers on the seven-day fly-cruise sailing.
For the inaugural voyage of Silver Endeavour, Silversea’s guests will fly directly to Antarctica in European business-class comfort through Antarctica Bridge, the cruise line’s fly-cruise offering, embarking the ship on King George Island on 21 November. There’s the chance to explore the landscape with hiking excursions, Zodiac tours, or go kayaking with the expedition team. Days will be spent exploring the Antarctic Peninsula, where sightings of vast penguin colonies and other wildlife species, including whales and seals await. Following in the footsteps of famous explorers, Silversea plans to call in at the South Shetland Islands before returning to King George Island where guests will board a flight back to Punta Arenas.
