Silversea announced on 09JUN that its entire 10-ship fleet has now re-entered service, the first time all of its vessels have been in operation together in the cruise line's industry.

"I am incredibly proud to see all of our ships now welcoming guests around the world—with 10 ships in operation for the first time in our cruise line’s history—after what’s been a challenging period for the global travel industry," said Roberto Martinoli, Silversea's President and CEO.

"We have come back stronger than before with the support of Royal Caribbean Group, with a more all-inclusive door-to-door service, three news ships, and various product enhancements. It is especially gratifying to have our beloved Silver Wind embark on her first voyages as an ice-class expedition vessel, complete with Zodiacs and kayaks—offering our guests unforgettable encounters with nature and wildlife, and, in due course, expanding our industry-leading polar offering."

Becoming the first ultra-luxury ships to set sail after the pandemic, Silversea's new ships Silver Moon and Silver Origin departed on their maiden voyages on 18 and 19JUN 2021 — in Greece and the Galápagos, respectively.

The following month, Silver Muse became the first ultra-luxury ship to sail in Alaska, while Silver Shadow welcomed guests in Iceland. Silver Spirit headed to Northern Europe in SEP 2021, while expedition ships Silver Explorer and Silver Cloud became the first ultra-luxury ships to return to Antarctica in NOV 2021 and Silver Whisper welcomed travellers in the Caribbean from the same month. The cruise line’s newest ship, Silver Dawn, embarked on its inaugural season in the Mediterranean in APR 2022.

A refurbishment, which finished in NOV 2021, saw the conversion of Silver Wind into an ice-class expedition ship, complete with an ice-strengthened hull for cruising in polar waters. After departing from Athens on 28MAY, the 274-guest vessel is now taking 14 days to sailing the waters of the Mediterranean before arriving in Lisbon on 11JUN.
