What's in a Name? Silversea Prince Albert II Gets a New Name

By April 20, 2011

Silversea Cruises will rename the Prince Albert II while the vessel is in dry dock later this month readying for the upcoming summer cruise season.
Prince Albert II now to be called Silver Explorer
The small luxury expedition ship's new name will be the Silver Explorer.

Silversea is renaming the small luxury expedition ship in order to reinforce its brand name and to align it with the cruise line's other five ships, all of whom have "Silver" in their names.

In a press release issued today, Manfredi Lefebvre, Silversea's chairman, said that although the company would continue to support Prince Albert II of Monaco's charitable foundation, Silversea wanted to prepare for the possibility of adding more expedition ships, all of whom would also reflect the "Silver" name.

The only thing changing about Silversea's luxury expedition ship is its name. The Silver Explorer is a Lloyd's Register 1A ice-rated vessel offering marvelous opportunities for its guests to explore the Arctic and Antarctic (and all places in between).

The ship has the largest average size accommodations of any expedition ship. Guests enjoy spacious, ocean-view accommodations (many with French balconies or large private verandas), butler service, gourmet cuisine, warm hospitality and personalized service (with a crew-to-guest ratio of nearly one to one). Like Silversea's other ships, the Silver Explorer also offers a generous selection of all-inclusive shipboard amenities, including complimentary beverages, bottled water, wines and spirits served throughout the ship, 24-hour room service, stocked in-suite beverage cabinet and all gratuities.
