Silver Discoverer is a small, yacht-type cruise ship operated by Silversea Cruises as the third member of its Silversea Expeditions fleet. She has previously been operated by a number of cruise lines under different names, the most recent of which was Clipper Odyssey.

Architecture and equipment

The ship has a tonnage of 5,218 tons, is 338 feet long and 51 feet wide. She is for destination-intensive cruising and does not have many amenities like larger ships.

All the cabins are outside and the ship has a small selection of balcony rooms and has one suite. She can accommodate up to 120 passengers in five categories.

The facilities on board include a jogging track, a swimming pool; a gym and beauty salon; a restaurant and pool grill; a lecture room for in-depth stories and briefings about the destinations and a panoramic lounge. Silver Discoverer is also equipped with 12 Zodiac boats and a glass-bottom boat for exploration of marine life. She used to have a decompression chamber for divers, but it is no longer in use.

Service history

The ship was built in 1989 for the Japanese market as Oceanic Grace, before being bought by Indonesia's Spice Islands Cruises which renamed her Oceanic Odyssey. In 1999, she was bought by St Louis-based Clipper Cruise Line, and renamed Clipper Odyssey. She was then sold in 2007 to International Shipping Partners.

On 10 September 2013, it was announced that the vessel had been purchased by Silversea Cruises. She entered service for Silversea on 1 March 2014, after being rechristened in Singapore by Elda Turco Bulgherini. The following month, she commenced a program of short cruises along the Kimberley coastline between Broome and Darwin, Australia.

As Silver Discoverer, she is now deployed in remote regions of the world including Micronesia, Melanesia, Polynesia, the Russian Far East, Southeast Asia, New Zealand and Australia, including one of its hidden treasures, the Kimberley. The Silversea Expeditions team will be on board, consisting of 11 experts, from expedition leaders, dive masters and marine biologists to historians, geologists and naturalists.
