Royal Caribbean Group’s Silversea Cruises is kicking off its inaugural voyage of new ship Silver Endeavour with a swell selection of experts who will enrich guests’ experience as they journey through the White Continent from King George Island on 21 November 2022.

Guests on board Silver Endeavour can expect the company of qualified historians, marine biologists, anthropologists, naturalists, filmmakers, among others, who will give informative lectures and workshops, and guide excursions in the seven-day fly-cruise sailing.

They would also experience the Antarctic Sound, and be greeted by towering ice formations as they approach the northernmost point of the Antarctic Peninsula, where vast penguin colonies and other wildlife species, including whales, various other bird species, and seals live.

In the Silversea-curated package, guests would be flown via chartered DAP Antarctic Airways into the continent and sail from the island.

Also joining Silver Endeavour's inaugural sailing is Conrad Combrink, Silversea’s SVP expedition, destination and itinerary management, who will be marking his 78th journey to the Antarctic.

Captain Peterstam, who has served aboard the ship since September 2021, would be the ship’s Master for her inaugural season, along with senior officers and an experienced crew.

The Silversea Cruises expedition would be led by Marieke Egan, whose team will embark the ship ahead of her maiden sailing and will remain on board throughout the inaugural Antarctica season.

Having perfected glacier crossings in the Swiss Alps, Egan’s adventurous spirit has seen her win medals for speed skating, trek through the Nepal Himalayas and High Andes in South America, and pilot 4WD tours in Australia.

She leads cruise expedition in the Antarctic, Seychelles, Indonesia, the Pacific Islands, High Arctic’s Greenland, Svalbard and the Russian Far East.

Meanwhile, cruise guests can listen to lectures on Ernest Shackleton and the HMS Endeavour by Nicholas Crane, former President of the Royal Geographical Society.

Crane has hosted BBC2 TV series such as Map Man, Great British Journeys, Town, Britannia and Coast, as well as been a lead presenter in over 80 BBC films.
