Polar Cruising with Prince Albert

Taking a look at some of our favourite expedition-style ships, here's one that still offers full five-star creature comforts...

With only 117 passengers, Silversea’s purpose-built Prince Albert II has been designed specifically for navigating waters in some of the world’s most remote destinations, including both of the earth’s polar regions.

A strengthened hull with a Lloyd’s Register ice-class notation (1A) for passenger vessels enables the ship to push safely through ice floes with ease. A fleet of Zodiac boats also allows Silversea's Expedition guests to visit even the most off-the-beaten path locations, while an expert Expedition Team provides insight and understanding to each daily adventure.

Silversea’s luxury expedition ship was named Prince Albert II, recognising the Prince of Monaco’s passion for exploration and environmental conservation. Silversea Expeditions also reflect the values of the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation.
