What should I pack?

Do I need to tip during my cruise?
Silversea cruise fares are all-inclusive. This means that standard tipping, or gratuities, are already included.
When will I receive my cruise documents?
Your Global Journeys Cruise Advisor will email your final cruise documents to you about 2-3 weeks prior to departure, provided we have received all the required information we need from you. Bon Voyage!
When can I board my cruise?
Your embarkation time will be included in your final cruise documents. If you have arranged airport transfers on arrival as part of your Silversea reservation, then you will usually be met by a Silversea representative at the baggage claim area.
When can I disembark my cruise?
Plan to be out of your suite by 8.30am on the final day, as disembarkation starts shortly after the ship clears customs. However, Silversea will give you disembarkation instructions towards the end of your voyage, including your disembarkation time.
Are shore excursions included on my Silversea Expedition cruise?
Every Silversea Expeditions voyage offers complimentary shore excursions, with expedition activities such as Zodiac cruising, hiking, snorkelling, and kayaking being led by the Expedition Team. Select itineraries have additional shore excursions available for purchase.
What do I wear on my expedition cruise?
Expedition cruises are a bit more relaxed, so smart casual clothing is good for day time. Pack for comfort and remember to pack for your expedition destination, of course! Evening wear is informal – ladies wear dresses or trouser suits and men wear jackets (tie optional).
Does Silversea provide my expedition gear?
Silversea has a supply of rubber gumboots on board particular expedition voyages, but availability and sizes may be limited. It’s recommended you bring your own boots to ensure the perfect size and fit for your comfort. You can purchase or hire appropriate gear for your expedition cruise via Silversea’s ‘Ship...read more to Shore Traveler’.
