History of Silversea Cruises
In the early 1990s, the Lefebvre family of Rome, former owners of Sitmar Cruises, organised a unique cruise company in the ultra-luxury segment. Silversea launched its first ship, Silver Cloud in 1994, followed by Silver Wind in 1995, Silver Shadow in 2000, Silver Whisper in 2001, Silver Explorer (formerly Prince Albert II) in 2008, and Silver Spirit in 2009.
In June 2012, Silversea purchased the Ecuadorian company Canodros S.A., along with it their expedition ship, Galapagos Explorer II. After a major refurbishment, the ship was renamed, Silver Galapagos, and joined the current fleet of ships in September 2013. In January 2021, it was reported that the Silver Galapagos was sold.
In 2017 Silversea debuted the Silver Muse and in 2018, Royal Caribbean purchased a majority interest in Silversea Cruises. In 2020 they acquired the remaining shares.
Also in 2020, Silversea Cruises introduced Silver Origin and Silver Moon. Unfortunately, due to the pandemic, Silver Moon did not see passengers until summer of 2021. In spring 2022, Silver Dawn will debut. Then in 2023 and 2024, a new class of ship, Evolution Class will be introduced.
