Silversea Update

Wednesday, March 18, 2020

We are in continuous contact with the various government authorities relating to transport. This work continues. We are grateful for their guidance and support including ensuring the health and well-being of all.

We can confirm that two guests aboard the Silver Shadow have been medically disembarked in Recife, Brazil, and one has tested positive for COVID-19, while the second has tested negative. Several guests aboard the Silver Explorer have been medically disembarked in Tortel and Castro, Chile, and they have tested positive for COVID-19.

On behalf of our guests, we are in close coordination with the governments and local health authorities to determine next best steps.  We have asked guests on the ships to temporarily remain in their cabins in accordance with our medical isolation protocols.

Our top priority is to ensure the health and comfort of our guests and crew, and we thank our guests for their patience and understanding as this issue affects them and so many around the world.
