Silversea Adds More Antarctica Fly-Cruise Voyages

Silversea has added three new “Antarctica Bridge” voyages for the 2023-2024 season. The fly-cruise program provides the fastest, most direct route to Antarctica by enabling travelers to fly over the Drake Passage, and explore the "White Continent" aboard three ice-class expedition ships.

Adding to Silversea’s existing Antarctica Bridge offering for 2022 and 2023, guests seeking the fast track to the White Continent can select from two new five-day expedition voyages aboard Silver Cloud, departing February 2 and 7, 2024, besides a six-day sailing departing February 12, 2024.

After landing at Chile’s Eduardo Frei Montalva air base on King George Island, guests can explore destinations such as Antarctic Sound, the Antarctic Peninsula and the South Shetland Islands, before returning to King George Island.

Silversea’s Expedition Team will guide Zodiac tours, kayaking adventures and explorations ashore, besides providing lectures on the region’s geology, wildlife, and history. Guests will also visit large penguin rookeries, and will have ample opportunity to see several species of seals, whales and other birds.

For sailings that cross the Drake Passage, Silversea recently enhanced guests’ journeys to Antarctica with the launch of roundtrip voyages from Puerto Williams, Chile. From the 2022-2023 season, guests sailing aboard Silver Cloud, Silver Wind and Silver Explorer can enjoy more convenient flight times, personalized service during a private charter flight, and quicker transfers to the ship, on exclusive itineraries departing from the new gateway of Puerto Williams.

The line’s Antarctica Bridge voyages are inclusive of private executive transfers; international roundtrip flights; one night pre-cruise hotel stay and one night post-cruise hotel stay in Santiago; in-country flights to Punta Arenas; one pre-cruise hotel and one post-cruise hotel night in Punta Arenas; private business class roundtrip flight between Punta Arenas and King George Island; transfers and luggage handling; limited complimentary Wi-Fi; dining at multiple restaurants and in-suite 24-hour dining service, including caviar; premium beverages in-suite and throughout the ship; butler service and onboard gratuities; guided tours and lectures; and complimentary expedition gear.
