Drake Passage
The Drake Passage, otherwise known as Sea of Hoces, is the body of water between South American's Cape Horn and the South Shetland Islands of Antarctica. Connecting the south-western part of the Atlantic Ocean with the south-eastern part of the Pacific Ocean; it is considered one of the roughest seas in the world. With a depth of 4,800 metres, it has been named the gateway to the Antarctic by many travellers. On average, it takes a cruise ship around 48 hours to sail from one end of Drake Passage to the other and passengers heading across can expect temperatures from 5°C in the north to -3°C in the south. The waters are rich in plankton, which then makes for healthy populations of dolphins, whales, and seabirds.

Antarctic Sound, Antarctica
Today the ship cruises through Antarctic Sound; a body of water that spans 30 nautical miles and is seven to 12 nautical miles wide. The Sound takes its name from the first vessel to navigate it in 1902 - expedition ship Antarctic - and separates the Joinville Island group from the northeast end of the Antarctic Peninsula. The peninsula sweeps up towards the tip of South America and is the perfect habitat for the black and white penguins that return each year to mate. This frozen continent at the ends of the Earth doesn't have any permanent inhabitants, but 28 countries have built research stations here to explore the crucial part it plays in the Earth’s weather and water levels.
5-7
Antarctica Peninsula
Spend the next three days in one of the remotest places on earth. Antarctica boasts breath-taking scenery and natural beauty. Walk on the glistening snow, enjoy thrilling kayaking and hiking, and come face-to-face with fascinating wildlife such as penguins, seals, and whales. Each trip ashore will vary depending on local weather conditions. The Deception Island at South Shetland Islands is a picturesque volcanic island with awe-inspiring volcanically-warmed sand and waters, which is sometimes cool enough to swim in! Half Moon Island boasts beautifully majestic Antarctic scenery and wonderful nature, perfect for photo opportunities; while the picturesque Yankee Harbour is home to a large colony of Gentoo penguin. Visit Neko Harbour, one of the places that you can place your feet on the Antarctic mainland, and Paradise Bay has magnificent glaciated mountains, towering ice cliffs and icebergs. At Wilhelmina Bay, keep your eyes peeled for the large numbers of humpback whales as well as the outstanding scenery and peaceful waters.
8
South Shetland Islands, Antarctica
A group of Antarctic islands, the South Shetland Islands have a total area of 3,687 square kilometres and lie about 120 kilometres north of the Antarctic Peninsula. Almost completely ice-covered, the 2-3% that is ice-free is where you can discover penguins, seals, and human inhabitants at the various bases. The main islands include King George Island, Elephant Island, Deception Island, Livingston Island, Penguin Island, Bridgeman Island, Aitcho Islands, Greenwich Island, and Half Moon Island. Deception Island is the best place to swim in Antarctica, so don't forget your swimming costume. Across the islands, the beautiful scenery includes mountains, glaciers, icebergs, ice caps, and lunar landscapes.

Background
Silver Wind
Overview
Second in the Silversea fleet, Silver Wind is much like Silver Cloud and a shining example of intimate, elegant cruising. As spacious as a grand hotel, as gracious as a best friends’ home, the lifestyle on board Silver Wind is one of fewer guests, more space and features Silversea’s renowned personalised service.

Food & Drink

With the importance of food in Italian culture, you would expect dining to be a high priority at Silversea. And it most assuredly is. No matter which restaurant you choose to dine in, you will find great diversity and presentation of culinary selections on board your all inclusive cruise. Silversea offers a choice of dining venues, even aboard their smallest ships, and as many as six restaurants on Silver Spirit — remarkable for a ship of her size. The main dining room aboard every Silversea luxury cruise ship, The Restaurant, is always open seating so you can arrive at your leisure and dine with the friends you invite to join your table. And with the worldly crowd of international guests who sail on Silversea ships, socialising is yet another great advantage of the Silversea experience.

Entertainment

The ocean views and soothing sound of the surf can be quite intoxicating at sea, so it’s not surprising that daydreaming on deck is one of the most popular pastimes. However, every Silversea all inclusive cruise also includes a considerable number of more active pursuits — some for the body, some for the mind … and some just for fun.

While on your luxury cruise, embark on a personal journey of wellness to complement your global adventures. Work out in the well-equipped Fitness Centre, take a class in circuit training or Pilates in the aerobics room, and let the sauna and steam rooms work their magic to soothe every muscle. Silversea offers seminars ranging from aromatherapy and nutrition to how to burn fat. A holistic approach to wellness fully integrates exercise, fitness and spa therapies with health lectures and nutritious dining to help you maintain a healthy lifestyle, even while away from home.
