Silversea renames ship

Special Correspondent

Silversea Cruises has announced a name change for its Prince Albert II expedition ship to Silver Explorer.

In the announcement the line elaborated that its expansion into adventure travel has been quite successful and it has to prepare for the possibility of adding more expedition ships and anticipate any future expedition ships will bear similar names (the word "Silver" appears in the line's previous ships).

The Prince Albert II has been so named as a tribute to His Serene Highness Prince Albert II of Monaco to honor his legacy of exploration and environmental conservation.

Silversea continues to support the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation, and looks forward to hosting future onboard fundraising events to benefit the Foundation's projects."

The Silver Explorer offers full-scale exploring with the largest average size accommodations of any expedition ship, all ocean-view (many with French balconies or large private verandas), butler service, sumptuous gourmet cuisine, a crew-to-guest ratio of nearly one to one, and Silversea's selection of all-inclusive shipboard amenities, including complimentary beverages, bottled water, wines and spirits served throughout the ship, 24-hour room service, stocked in-suite beverage cabinet and all gratuities.
