Cruise Fare, Fees, Credits & Payments
Your cruise-only fare covers most shipboard services including: suite accommodation, all onboard meals and entertainment, all gratuities aboard ship (except spa) and complimentary beverages aboard ship (including select wines, champagnes and spirits). On a limited number of select sailings, a special Silversea Experience shore event is also included. All fares are quoted in U.S. dollars, are per guest and based on double occupancy.
Not included in your cruise-only fare are: airfare, optional hotel accommodation, transfers and luggage handling, fuel surcharges, optional shore excursions, meals ashore, meals in Le Champagne and Seishin Restaurant, accommodation while ashore, security surcharges, casino gaming, laundry or valet services, purchases from the ship boutiques, childcare services aboard ship or any item or service of a personal nature such as massages, spa treatments, private fitness instruction, hair styling and manicures. Some champagne, premium wine and spirit selections, caviar, cigarettes and cigars are not included in your fare.
Under normal conditions the cruise-only fare is guaranteed at the time of booking. However, the fare that you pay is determined far in advance of initial departure on the basis of then-existing projections of fuel and other costs. In the event of any significant change in such costs beyond Silversea’s control, including but not limited to increases in the price of fuel, currency fluctuations affecting Silversea’s costs, increases in government taxes or levies, or increased security costs, Silversea reserves the right to surcharge guests to cover such unexpected costs. Silversea has the right to refuse to transport guests unless the additional surcharge is paid in advance of initial departure.
Single and Third Guests
(Not applicable on Silver Explorer)
A limited number of suites are available for purchase on a single- or third-guest occupancy basis. The supplement for single occupancy in a Vista, Terrace, Veranda or Midship Veranda Suite ranges from 10% – 100% above the double occupancy fare, depending upon the sailing and suite selected. Single supplement for a Silver or Medallion Suite, Grand, Royal or Owner’s Suites are 100% above the double occupancy fare. Suites for single and third guests are capacity controlled. Fares and supplements are subject to change without notice based on availability.

These charges include taxes and fees imposed on Silversea by governmental or quasi-governmental agencies and include, but are not limited to, such items as arrival or departure taxes and per person port usage or impact fees.

Silversea reserves the right to pass through to its guests (including fully paid and deposited guests) any taxes and government fees/quasi-government fees that relate specifically to a guest’s itinerary. “Taxes and Government fees/quasi-government fees” include any and all fees, charges, surcharges, tolls and taxes imposed by governmental or quasi-governmental authorities including, but not limited to, customs fees, per person berth taxes or fees, embarkation and/or disembarkation fees at ports, airline transportation fees, dockage fees, and wharfage fees.

Silversea may collect any taxes, government fees/quasi-government fees and fuel supplement (the “Surcharges”) at the time of booking, prior to sailing or on board the vessel, even if the cruise fare has been paid in full. Surcharges will be invoiced accordingly.
Silversea Cruise Credits have no cash value, are non-transferable, and may only be used in conjunction with the purchase of a Silversea cruise prior to the expiration date. These credits are valid toward the published cruise-only brochure fares and are applied to bookings after any air credit, if applicable, and all other savings programmes. Certain restrictions may apply.
