Silver Discoverer

Formerly known as the MS Clipper Odyssey, the 120-passenger Silver Discoverer began her new life with Silversea Cruises in March 2014. Having been associated with the vessel for many years we know her to be ideal for expedition cruising. The vessel’s shallow draft will allow us to navigate in areas which larger ships would not be able to access and with the fleet of 12 onboard Zodiacs and expert expedition team we will be able to land on isolated shores. Whilst cruising, the vessel benefits from spacious deck areas from where you can watch for passing wildlife such as a breaching whale. The atmosphere on board is relaxed and informal with the focus on the wonders of the destination you are visiting, which combined with the luxury surroundings, excellent service, superb cuisine and expert expedition team make for an expedition of a lifetime.

    The dress code on board ranges from casual to informal. Casual wear is appropriate for daytime aboard ship or ashore, and shoes should be flat or low heeled for deck activities. Evening attire is casual with the exception of the Captain’s Welcome Aboard and Farewell Dinners, which are casually elegant.

    Silver Discoverer has 110 AC power. Most modern electronic devices support dual voltages, but if you are uncertain, please verify your equipment prior to plugging it in. The electrical receptacles on the ship accept plugs of a type known as North American non-grounded or type A. In particular, please be advised that devices such as generators, lamps, electric motors, electric shavers, hairdryers, clocks and some video equipment may be incompatible with the 1100v/609 Hz power. A hairdryer is provided in each suite/stateroom. If you wish to bring along other equipment, you should verify if a voltage transformer or other conversion device is necessary. Ordinarily, simple plug converters will suffice for laptop power supplies and many devices with rechargeable batteries such as cell phones, iPods, or digital cameras. We do advise that you read the labels on each particular device to determine the compatibility. Remember to bring an adequate supply of batteries for the voyage. Because of the environmental hazards inherent in the disposal of batteries, we recommend rechargeable batteries for most applications. To protect the fragile environments where Silver Discoverer sails, we request that guests retain all their exhausted batteries and dispose of them in an environmentally safe manner after you return home. For your convenience, there is also a battery disposal box on board.


    It is mandatory that all guests participate in a Zodiac briefing and safety drill, which is normally scheduled to take place prior to departure from the port of embarkation. Please note that emergency information is posted in your suite/stateroom.

    The Silver Discoverer features a variety of dining options including The Restaurant, The Grill and complimentary Room Service. The open-seating policy allows you to dine when and with whom you wish. The Restaurant menu features sumptuous classical and modern cuisine with the local delicacies from our different ports of call. Low calorie, low carb, vegetarian and vegan options are also available. For lunch the outdoor grill serves casual lunchtime salads and specials. Come evening, the outdoor grill is transformed into The Grill featuring “hot rock” dining under the stars. This fun, interactive cooking concept allows guests to grill their own seafood and prime meats directly at their table on a heated volcanic rock plate. Dinner reservations recommended and may be made once on board.


    Silver Discoverer is equipped with a Medical Centre. A doctor is on 24-hour call when at sea. When docked, supplementary emergency care may also be obtained through local medical facilities. Guests may be charged for medical services and for medications used for their medical treatment.


    Please ensure you take the appropriate precautions to guard against mosquito bites.


    Newspapers are not available on board.


    Itineraries are unstructured by design. Following only a tentative schedule allows for moment-by-moment flexibility to stay longer at sites of particular interest, or make slight detours whenever weather, nature or mere curiosity dictate. Guests will be notified of any required deviation as soon as possible. PAYMENTS ON BOARD

    Upon embarkation, guests will be asked to register their VISA, Master Card or American Express credit card number and expiration date, which must be valid through the final day of their voyage. All charges for services provided and products purchased on board must be settled in cash, by travellers’ cheques in US dollars, or by above listed credit card at the end of each voyage segment and before final disembarkation from the ship.


    There is a swimming pool situated on deck 5.


    Postage and mailing services are available on board the ship. Please note that due to the remote destinations visited during your expedition cruise, it may not be possible to send or receive mail.


    A questionnaire will be provided to all passengers towards the end of their sailing. We would be grateful for you to complete and return this.


    You may order from the Room Service menu between the hours of 6am and 11pm.


    Your suite/stateroom is equipped with a personal safe, located inside the closet. Please take great care with your money, jewellery, cameras, binoculars, documents and any other articles that you retain in your personal control or keep in your suite/stateroom. We recommend that you leave money and other valuables in the safe.


    For safety reasons, smoking is not permitted in any inside public areas, staterooms, guest suites, verandas or balconies. However, cigarette, cigar and pipe smoking are permitted in specifically designated outside areas on Deck 6. We kindly request that all guests observe the non-smoking areas.

    A complimentary water bottle is available in your suite and is refilled each day by your butler.


    Silver Discoverer carries a fleet of Zodiac boats, allowing you to explore places that would otherwise be inaccessible. To reach destinations where there are no piers and for islands surrounded by shallow waters, Zodiacs are the perfect solution. These rigid boats are specifically designed for nature study, and are very rugged, as well as safe, sturdy and durable. They are easy to board, whether at the ship or ashore, and are operated by highly-trained crew. A Zodiac is an exceptionally buoyant rubber boat with an inflatable hull of multiple air-filled compartments, a feature that allows the Zodiac to float even should a compartment become deflated. A low centre of gravity makes Zodiacs very stable. Zodiacs are also agile, allowing them to easily come alongside Silver Discoverer, and to manoeuvre over reefs and between narrow passages. All guests will participate in a mandatory Zodiac familiarisation session upon embarkation.
