Exclusive Cruise Silverseas 2016
Welcome aboard the sleek, 120-guest Silver Discoverer cruise ship. For our 2016 Solar Eclipse Cruise, we chose Silversea’s third expedition ship the SILVER DISCOVERER. This amazing Luxury Cruise Ship is skillfully engineered to explore the most remote archipelagos in the Pacific. Her small size allows access to rugged coasts that ordinary ships cannot accommodate. Panoramic views and open decks consistently provide passengers with breathtaking views. A fleet of Zodiacs escort guests around remote landings for an up-close look at nature’s marvels. There’s also a glass-bottom boat for underwater viewing along with snorkeling equipment and a dive program for advanced divers. The Expedition Team onboard, composed of experts in the culture, history, and wild life of the destinations, present informal talks, guide Zodiac outings, and lead small-group explorations ashore
This exclusive cruise Silverseas 2016 is presented by Ring of Fire Expeditions as its 44th Solar Eclipse venture—a 17 day ocean voyage on the luxury Silversea expedition ship, Silver Discoverer. We will explore the Solomon Islands, Papua New Guinea, Micronesia, and Palau. The ship will also travel to the maximum possible eclipse point on March 9, 2016 where a full 4 minutes 07 seconds of a total solar eclipse can be viewed!! Recognized in articles by Travel Pulse and by the LA Times, the cruise is sure to be a once in a lifetime experience.
Visit untouched islands while on the exclusive Silversea Cruise. We’ll steer clear of the well-worn path, and take you to island destinations most travelers don’t see. Admire the forest-clad mountains of the Marquesas Islands and swim with sharks at Rangiroa. Discover an old village at Fakarava and stop in Atuona, the beautiful resting place of famed artist Paul Gauguin. View a traditional Baining fire performance—a nocturnal dance performed around a magnificent fire in traditional Tuk Tuk masks.
View 4 minutes and 7 seconds of a TOTAL Solar Eclipse. Everyone will be provided a pair of proper eclipse viewing sunglasses as part of the cruise. There will also be multiplesome instructional classes available to prepare you for the 4 most exciting minutes of totality. See the exceptional “Green Flash” — Green flashes are real phenomena seen at sunrise and sunset, when a part of the Sun suddenly changes color from red or orange to green or on rare occasion, blue.
On the Solar Eclipse Cruise there are 9 locations in the itinerary where either diving and/or snorkeling are available. Uepi Welcome Jetty: Rated as one of the best shore dives, you’ll see a variety of fish such as mangrove jack, greasy rock cods, and stingrays, whilst under continual surveillance by the resident grey whalers, white-tips & black-tip sharks. Palau is legendary amongst divers for dramatic coral encrusted walls rising from the depths to within inches of the surface.
