True to its name, the Discoverer enables passengers to voyage to some of the most exciting and adventurous places on the planet, with the ship's shallow draft allowing it to get much closer to coasts, coral reefs and other natural features than other vessels. As such, it's the perfect choice for anyone who would rather spend their time exploring the beauty of nature than lazing around in a spa or watching a show in a theatre.
Indeed, every aspect of this ship has been designed to make sure that guests don't miss out on the amazing wonders outside, with regular outings taking place on zodiac boats to allow passengers to experience their surroundings close up. Travelling to some of the world's most amazing reefs, you'll have the chance to view them from a glass-bottomed boat, while an experienced guide talks you through the marine life beneath your feet.
What's more, trips aboard the Silversea Discoverer enable you to combine rugged exploration with a sense of real luxury, thanks to the spacious and well-appointed onboard suites, as well as the first-rate service. Elegant bars and lounges provide the perfect setting to mingle with other passengers, swapping stories about the day's escapades, while those who want to be truly pampered can be waited on by their own personal butler.
The food onboard the Discoverer is of the very highest quality, with international cuisine on offer at the ship's three eateries. Menus draw heavily on local influences from the voyage destination, with locally sourced ingredients and dishes featuring on the menu.
The Restaurant provides an elegant environment in which to dine, with no set seating plan or sitting times, which means passengers can eat as and when they please. For something a little more casual, The Grill is located by the pool, and serves up top quality seafood, steaks and much more at all times of day. Finally, the Discoverer Lounge offers a light breakfast and lunch buffet.
The recreational opportunities onboard the Discoverer reflect the fact that it's more of an expedition vessel than a cruise liner. Therefore, instead of karaoke, kids clubs theatre productions, guests will be able to enjoy talks and presentations led by an expert crew of explorers and scientists.
Itineraries are arranged to allow for as much adventure as possible, with regular zodiac outings taking place, while snorkelling and diving equipment is on offer for those who would like to get a little closer to the life beneath the waves.
