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 2014, Silver Discoverer joined the Silversea fleet. Built in 1989, it previously sailed under the name Clipper Odyssey. It was converted into an ice-class ship in August 2017, but then it was sold to Sunstone in 2019.
In 2017 Silversea debuted the Silver Muse and in 2018, Royal Caribbean Group purchased a majority interest in Silversea Cruises. In 2020, Silver Origin and Silver Moon were launched, plus Royal Caribbean Group acquired the remaining shares of Silversea.
