Silversea & The Royal Geographical Society
Silversea and the Royal Geographical Society (with the Institute of British Geographers) have joined forces to spread knowledge collated from centuries of scientific exploration. Founded nearly 200 years ago to advance geographical science, the Society, whose patron is Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, will share some of the world’s most important geographical research and archive material. The Royal Geographical Society (with IBG) is a respected professional body for geography and geographers and is one of the largest societies of its kind in the world, as well as the biggest in Europe. The Society has been a notable supporter and communicator of the work of explorers and scientists, including that of Charles Darwin, David Livingstone, Robert Scott, Sir Ernest Shackleton and Sir Edmund Hillary. Dating back as far as 1472, there are more than two million items in the Society’s historic collection. Silversea Expeditions guests will benefit from a wide range of specialist visual and written content from the Society, enabling guests to learn even more about their expedition destination.
Voyages Highlights
Special onboard lectures from expert Historians and Archeologists.
Exclusive crafted menus that celebrate the camaraderie of an exploration team at sea. Special presence of VIP speakers from RGS on selected voyages. Rich source of documentary evidence that is on load from the RGS. Ashore experiences to visit the historic sites of interest.

ROYAL GEOGRAPHICAL SOCIETY SPEAKERS

Three speakers from the Royal Geographical Society will join the Silversea expedition team for additional talks, lectures and activities on three selected voyages in 2019.
