Our small ships venture far and wide, yet the ambience on board remains intimate and personal. Resisting the temptation to build ever-larger vessels, we maintain the sophisticated, club-like environment our cosmopolitan guests appreciate. We make personal pampering our first port of call and our cruises are all inclusive and luxuriously exclusive.

Or sail through the Panama Canal and down the Inca Coast.

Just pack your spirit of adventure and join us.
Cast off to the ends of the Earth on a Silversea Expedition and experience the rush of setting foot on the unknown and rarely explored.

Watch orcas chasing a sea lion as you relax in a lounge chair on your private veranda. It is this spirit of warm hospitality where virtually everything is included in your fare that cultivates such a sense of ease and well-being on an expedition with Silversea.

I’m thrilled to announce our 2017-18 collection of extraordinary expedition voyages to the Polar Regions. It’s going to be a great season. I’m excited to be returning to some of my favorite places: Iceland, Norway, Svalbard, Franz Josef Land, Greenland, the Falkland Islands, South Georgia, and of course the North Pole and the Antarctic Peninsula. Even thinking about these amazing places, I feel the buoyant sense of joyful excitement that I felt on my first voyage to the ice many years ago, and on every voyage since.
During our 18 years of experience operating in the Polar Regions, we have had the privilege of meeting travelers of all ages who come from all around the world and who have many different interests. Among our travelers, there are those who have visited almost every continent and want to check Antarctica or the Arctic off their bucket list. We meet those who are concerned about global warming and want to know more about conservation in the Polar Regions.
G Adventures is committed to ensuring the communities our travellers visit get something back in return. Since 1990, we’ve integrated over 35 self-sustaining initiatives into over 175 of our itineraries. These projects address local challenges to benefi t indigenous people, empower marginalized women, and grant disadvantaged youth access to education, employment, and brighter futures.
We’re delighted that every year, we are able to add more fantastic chapters to the story of AmaWaterways and our river cruises. Our family-owned company has come a long way, and we continue to deliver the very best in river cruising to our valued guests. And a big part of that is that we never stand still – rather, we are always looking to innovate, enhance and add value for everyone that sets sail with us. We are always seeking to implement new ship designs and features, new tours, new destinations and new ways to provide a luxurious onboard experience that won’t soon be forgotten. And we always smile when we hear from our guests how amazing their cruise with AmaWaterways was.
At AmaWaterways, we love what we do — providing our guests with the best travel experiences possible. In fact, “Ama” is derived from the Latin word for “love.” It is a concept that permeates every aspect of our river cruises, from the design of our ships to the development of our itineraries to the high levels of service we deliver to our guests. We always look to innovate, offer exciting new destinations and add extra value for each and every guest who travels with us.
Create memories and emotions you won’t soon forget on our Arctic expeditions. Follow in the wake of the Vikings to Greenland and Iceland. Explore Svalbard where the polar bear roams freely. Hike and Zodiac amid icebergs and spectacular tundra. Vast colonies of birds pocket the rugged cliffs. Seals and walrus haul out on rocky outcrops. Whales spout and breach before your eyes.
Taking you closer to the heart of the polar regions has been our driving passion at Oceanwide Expeditions for over twenty years. Our knowledgeable cruise leaders, committed staff, and thoroughly outfitted vessels are our way of expressing what we care about most: making your cruise to the Arctic and Antarctic truly unforgettable. When you sail with us, you experience a part of the world that is unlike any other. Mountainous glaciers, snow-swept shores, whales and polar bears and vast colonies of penguins make up this world, and they are all part of the surreal ecosystem you can watch unfold before you on your future Oceanwide expedition.
