Silversea Cruises, which is chaired by Manfredi Lefebvre d'Ovidio, is recognized as an innovator in the ultra-luxury cruise line industry, offering guests large-ship amenities aboard its intimate, all-suite vessels: Silver Wind, Silver Shadow, Silver Whisper, Silver Spirit and Silver Muse – all designed to offer an atmosphere of conviviality and casual elegance. With the inclusion of the expedition ships Silver Explorer, Silver Galapagos, Silver Discoverer, and with Silver Cloud recently joining the Expedition fleet, Silversea's itineraries encompass all seven continents and feature worldwide luxury cruises to the Mediterranean, Caribbean, both polar regions and hundreds of fascinating destinations in between.

Silversea is working with ORCA to enable guests to discover and engage with incredible marine life on their Silversea adventures and contribute to ORCA’s ongoing marine conservation work by helping to collect critical sightings data of whales, dolphins and porpoises.

ORCA conservationists will travel on board select voyages, complementing the extensive Silversea enrichment programme by sharing their knowledge of the rich diversity of marine life on these voyages.

This partnership launched in 2018 with cruises from San Diego - Vancouver and Vancouver - San Francisco, marking ORCA's first ever survey in the Pacific Ocean. Future plans include two 2019 voyages from Tokyo - Alaska and Alaska - Vancouver aboard Silversea's newest ship, Silver Muse.
