Northern Europe & British Isles Cruise: Helsinki to Reykjavik on Silver Wind
Welcome to the Baltic Sea, the British Isles and Iceland. This unusual itinerary sees you enjoying some of Northern Europe’s shiniest jewels during the midnight sun. Starting in Helsinki, you’ll begin by taking in Finland’s indefinable wild beauty and UNESCO World Heritage sites, before sailing on to Sweden, Estonia, Denmark and Germany. Two days sailing the Kiel Canal take you to Hamburg, and on to the rugged Scottish Isles. Iceland’s excellent shores complete your cruise.
Break new waters with Silver Wind.
A major upgrade in December 2018 saw Silver Wind looking better than ever. A second refurbishment in November 2021 saw her benefitting from a strengthened to ice-class hull and made her one of the most adaptable ships in our fleet. Still timelessly elegant, still luxuriously relaxed, Silver Wind’s improved cruising versatility means she is able to whizz from the Polar Regions at the ends of the earth to the iconic ports of the Mediterranean with fluid ease. Whether you want to get up close and personal to penguins in Antarctica or laze on the golden sands of the Caribbean, get ready for a wealth of diverse destination experiences aboard Silver Wind.
Silversea provides one of the most inclusive offerings in ultra-luxury cruising. Voyages include butler service in every suite category; a choice of restaurants on every ship, as well as in-suite dining around the clock, complimentary sustainable caviar on-demand 24/7, and premium beverages served throughout the ship; and a true door-to-door service, with private executive transfers and flights included as standard, among other inclusions. Silversea’s guests travel deep into over 900 destinations across all seven continents, enjoying a curated selection of immersive experiences in the world’s most remarkable places.
In addition to four ultra-luxury expedition ships, Silversea counts six classic vessels in its fleet. Among the most comfortable and spacious ships at sea, each of the cruise line’s ships enjoys an atmosphere of elegance, conviviality, and whispered luxury. Silversea has recently welcomed three ships to its fleet since June 2020 – Silver Origin, Silver Moon and Silver Dawn – bringing the fleet’s tally to 10.
Silversea Cruises continues to innovate in the ultra-luxury and expedition cruise industries. The launch of Silver Moon in October 2020 marked the introduction of Silversea’s groundbreaking S.A.L.T. culinary programme. S.A.L.T. enables travellers to dive deep into the world’s richest culinary cultures, taking regional food and drink as lenses through which guests can engage with the soul of a destination. Aboard Silver Dawn, which joined the fleet in November 2021, guests enjoy the Otium wellness programme—an indulgent innovation in wellness at sea, which, inspired by the Roman lifestyle, focuses on pampering and pleasure over sacrifice and delayed gratification.
Building on the ongoing sustainability efforts of the Group, Silversea will take delivery of two Evolution-class ships in 2023 and 2024, respectively, pushing boundaries in sustainable cruise travel, with pioneering technology that will reduce the ships’ carbon footprints. ‘Project Evolution’ will be the first cruise ship to use fuel cells to provide 100% of power while at port. It will operate using a trio of power sources, including a fuel cell system, battery technology, and dual-fuel engines that use liquefied natural gas (LNG) as the main fuel.
