Silversea's purpose-built Silver Explorer expedition ship (formerly the Prince Albert II) has been designed specifically for navigating waters in some of the world's most remote destinations, including both of earth's polar regions. A strengthened hull with a Lloyd's Register ice-class notation (1A) for passenger vessels enables Silver Explorer to safely push through ice floes with ease. A fleet of Zodiac boats allows Silversea Expedition guests to visit even the most off-the-beaten path locations, and an expert Expedition Team provides insight and understanding to each unforgettable Silver Explorer cruise adventure.

Colon (Panama)

10/17/2017 5:00:00 PM

There’s more to Panama than the canal. Panama’s ethnic mix is reflected in its arts. This is a proud nation that honors its many Indian tribes and its rich Spanish legacy. And with some of the finest deep-sea fishing, snorkeling and birding, once you embrace Panama, you’ll find it hard to leave.

Panama Canal

Linking the Atlantic to the Pacific, the Panama Canal provides one of cruising's most unforgettable experiences. Over 10 years were needed to complete the canal's 51 miles in 1914 - so avoiding the lengthy and often dangerous voyage around Cape Horn. 'The Big Ditch' lifts vessels by a fascinating feat of mechanics aided by on-shore 'mule' locomotives through three great locks, traversing man-made lakes, channels blasted through rock, and the dense jungle. Two other special highlights of the canal are Gatun Lake and the Gaillard cut. Gatun Lake is one of the world's largest man-made lakes covering 163 square miles. Gaillard Cut is an 8 mile channel built through solid rock which was the most difficult excavation in the canal construction.

Darien Jungle

Darien is the region forming part of the easternmost Isthmus of Panama and the link between Central and South America. It is a hot, humid area typified by tropical rainforests, mangrove swamps, and low mountain ranges with cloud forest and is one of the most biologically diverse regions of the world. You can explore the Sambu river of the Darien National Park which was added to the World Heritage List in 1981. It is home to the indigenous Choco Indians and many endangered species such as harpy eagles, jaguars and several types of Macaw.

Bahia Solano

Bahía Solano is located on the Chocó coast, Columbia. An area rich in biodiversity, Bahia Solano is home to the leatherback turtles and humpback whales. It is an ideal location for diving and whale watching, and famous for deep-sea sportfishing.

Isla de la Plata lies off the coast of Ecuador, and boasts an abundant amount of wildlife. There are some nice hiking trails to the top of the Island. From there, the view is incredible and you can watch the frigate birds, boobies, and albatross. During your visit you will surely encounter dolphins or whales offshore, and it is common for guides to introduce you to some of the quiet and clear bays to snorkel or swim.

Guayaquil

This tropical city of over two million people spreads out along the banks of chocolate-colored Guayas River, about 12 miles from Gulf of Guayaquil. The river, navigable for the largest of ocean vessels, makes this one of the Pacific's most important and best-protected ports. Visitors find the city itself is primarily valued as a gateway for the Galapagos Island and the rest of the country. Ecuador's scenic capital Quito can be reached via a 45-minute flight from Guayaquil. Lush green hillsides, snow-capped volcano cones and brilliant sunshine combine to make the city a charming surprise. Guayaquil offers a rich and interesting history. The meeting of Bolivar and San Martin is commemorated with the colonnaded La Rotunda facing the river. Other attractions include Colon Park where the city was founded, the Santo Domingo Church and the cemetery, often called the White City. With its elaborate tombs and monuments, this is one of South America's most striking burial grounds.
