Sail on Silver Explorer

Sail on Silver


Silversea Cruises’ Silver Explorer offers just the right blend of elegance and adventure.

By Judi Cuervo

Expedition. The word conjures images of rugged, parka-clad explorers scaling treacherous ice-slicked mountains and subsisting for days on rations of trail mix and Snickers.

By contrast, my Silver Explorer expedition finds me on a tranquil beach in Madrisky Cay, Venezuela, my feet buried in powder-soft white sand, a clear aqua sea before me and an ice-cold Solera beer in my hand. Nearby, a table is piled high with delicacies like barracuda ceviche, seafood shish kabob, the makings of Cuba libres and more of my beloved Solera, the decadent haul having been transported from a restaurant on nearby Gran Roque.

This is expedition, Silversea style.

To be fair, my sailing is a Silver Explorer repositioning, a sun-drenched voyage from Colon, Panama, to Barbados, calling at exotic locales in Central America and the Caribbean as the ship works her way northward. While we are a far cry from the polar regions that this purpose-built, 6,072-gross ton, 132-passenger vessel typically plies, the cultural, environmental, and adventurous hallmarks of a Silver Explorer sailing are with us every nautical mile.
