Silversea Changes Name of Expedition Ship

Travel advisors take note: After this month, if you are looking to book Silversea's expediiton ship Prince Albert II, you'll have a tough time. Why? The ship is being renamed to Silver Explorer. The change will occur later this month while the vessel is in dry dock at the Lisnave shipyard in Setubal, Portugal, undergoing routine maintenance prior to commencing a summer program of Northern Europe and Arctic voyages.
 
"Our expansion into adventure travel has turned out quite successful and we have to prepare for the possibility of adding more ships," said Manfredi Lefebvre, Silversea's chairman. "To reinforce the Silversea luxury brand image for the expedition segment, we decided to change the name of our first expedition ship to Silver Explorer and anticipate any future expedition ships will bear similar names that evoke a sense of luxurious adventure."
 
Silver Explorer offers full-scale exploring with large ocean-view accommodations, butler service, gourmet cuisine and a host of all-inclusive shipboard amenities.
