Silversea Cruises’ ultra-luxury Silver Whisper has become the first-ever ship to visit Antarctica on a world cruise, meeting up with another of the cruise line’s ships, Silver Cloud, in Wilhelmina Bay.

Silver Whisper is currently sailing on a ‘Legends of Cruising’ voyage, which is the first cruise to visit all seven continents. The ship spent four days at the Antarctic Peninsula as guests explored the area on Zodiac tours and excursions onshore, with several lectures and workshops featuring onboard.

“The meeting of Silver Cloud and Silver Whisper in Antarctica is truly an incredible moment for Silversea Cruises,” said Conrad Combrink, Silversea's senior vice president of expeditions and experiences development. “It signifies the range of experiences on offer with our cruise line: whether travelling on the first-ever seven-continent world cruise or journeying deep into the ‘White Continent’ on the most luxurious ice-class ship afloat, our guests can enjoy a wealth of unforgettable experiences in ultimate comfort.”

The 140-day cruise will conclude in Amsterdam, Netherlands on 25 May.
