Silversea Expeditions 2015 Kimberley voyages on board Silver Discoverer


#expeditioncruising




Silversea Expeditions has released its 2015 Kimberley voyages on board Silver Discoverer. The latest addition to the Silversea Expeditions' fleet, the ship will explore the jaw-dropping landscapes of the Kimberley with six voyages from March to May.

Karen Christensen, General Manager & Director Sales/Marketing, Australasia, says sales for the 2015 Kimberley season are already strong and a repeat on 2014's sold out season is likely.

"When Silver Discoverer was announced in September 2013, we experienced a surge in reservations, resulting in the 2014 season all but selling out prior to the ship's inaugural sailing in April of this year.  This reinforced to us that this part of Australia and our luxury, all-inclusive style of expedition cruising resonates strongly with our guests," says Christensen.

Largely inaccessible and protected by its remoteness, the Kimberley region in north-western Australia offers breathtaking landscapes rich in history.  Guests can experience natural waterfalls up close via Zodiac, search for saltwater crocodiles in vast wetlands, fly over the Bungle Bungle region and witness the historic Bradshaw rock art, illustrated by Indigenous cultures over 20,000 years ago.

"The Kimberley is without a doubt, one of Australia's best kept secrets.  Silver Discoverer brings guests even closer to the region's dramatic landscapes and historically rich destinations, all in the comfort and style that Silversea is renowned for," says Christensen.

In true Silversea Expeditions style, guests can experience an on board program of destination lectures, photo presentations and daily recaps. Exploratory Zodiac excursions and interactive walks ashore, led by experts in their field, including marine biologists, ornithologists, geologists, botanists, historians, and anthropologists, are complimentary. The added convenience of the pool on board Silver Discoverer – a rarity on ships in the region -provides guests with respite from the Kimberley's warm climate whilst enjoying this beautiful part of the world.

The privileged 120-guests on board Silver Discoverer can enjoy ocean-view suites, gourmet cuisine, personalised butler service, and a generous selection of all-inclusive on board amenities, including complimentary Champagne, wines and spirits served throughout the ship, and stocked in-suite.

In 2015, 10-day Darwin to Broome (or vice-versa) voyages depart 9, 19, 29 April, and 9, 19 May. All-inclusive fares start from AU$10,950 per person double occupancy.
