Silversea Cruises was founded in 1994 by a joint venture between V-Ships (previously known as Vlasov Group) of Monaco and the Lefebvre family of Rome. The joint owners had previously been the co-owners of Sitmar Cruises.
As a marketing strategy the new line introduced all-inclusive fares including gratuities, beverages, port charges, travel insurance, and some complimentary shore excursions. As about 80 percent of Silversea’s customers were expected to come from North America, the line established a sales office in Miami, Florida.
The first ship of Silversea Cruises, Silver Cloud, which entered service in April 1994, was followed in January 1995 by a sister ship, Silver Wind.
In September 2000, the line launched Silver Shadow and Silver Whisper in January 2001. Both of these ships were enlarged versions of the original two ships, but carrying about 100 more passengers. In December 2009, Silversea launched Silver Spirit.
On 18 June 2012, Silversea acquired Canodros S.A., an Ecuadorian tourism company that operated in the Galápagos Islands. The purchase of the line also included the former Renaissance ship Galapagos Explorer II. She was subsequently moved into the “Silversea Expeditions” brand along with Silver Explorer. Silver Galapagos entered service in September 2013.
On 24 July 2013, CNN aired a report of a Silversea cruise ship, Silver Shadow failing a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) inspection by hiding trolleys of food in crew cabins.
On 10 September 2013, Silversea Cruises confirmed that it would be adding a third vessel to the “Silversea Expeditions” brand, Silver Discoverer, formerly sailing as Clipper Odyssey for Zegrahm Expeditions. Silver Discoverer was christened in Singapore in March 2014 and set sail on her inaugural voyage along Australia’s Kimberley Coast on 2 April 2014.
Fincantieri delivered the fleet’s ninth ship, Silver Muse to Silversea Cruises on 2 April 2017, at its Sestri Ponente shipyard. Silver Muse‘s debut cruise set sail on 10 April 2017, in the Mediterranean Sea. That same year, Silversea announced an order for Silver Moon, a sister ship to Silver Muse, to be built by Fincantieri and delivered in 2020. In May 2018, Silversea announced an order for Silver Dawn, another sister ship of Silver Muse, to be delivered by Fincantieri in 2021.
