On November 19, Silversea Cruises gave its newest expeditionary cruise ship the name “Silver Endeavour”. The naming ceremony took place in the Lemaire Channel, one of Antarctica’s most scenic straits, ahead of the ship’s inaugural voyage under her new name.

The 200-passenger vessel, described as the world’s most luxurious cruise vessel, was formerly operated by the failed Crystal Cruises under the name “Crystal Endeavor”. She was delivered in June 2021 from MV Werften’s shipyard in Stralsund, Germany.

ICE performed about 2/3 of the multi-discipline detail design of this complex ship in its Romanian office. In addition, a team from ICE undertook field engineering and on-site troubleshooting during construction of the ship. The 20,000 GT ship was the only oceangoing ship successfully delivered from the now defunct MV Werften’s three German shipyards, which were severely impacted by Covid.

ICE is proud of its major contribution to the design and construction of the “Silver Endeavour” and wish Silversea Cruises success with this new addition to its illustrious fleet.
