Luxury cruise line Silversea announced on 10 September it will add a third expedition ship to its fleet, with an ambitious program of voyages starting in March to remote destinations including the Kimberley, the Russian Far East, Micronesia, Polynesia and the Sub-Antarctic islands.

The 128-passenger Silver Discoverer will carry 12 Zodiacs, a glass-bottom boat and an expedition team of 11, including divemasters as well as naturalists.
