Silversea Cruises was founded in 1994 by Antonio Lefebvre. Prior to creating the cruise company, Lefebvre had gained widespread respect as an Italian jurist and maritime law professor. In creating the company, Lefebvre hoped to create a new class of elite cruising. His aim was to create a fleet that gave more space to a smaller number of passengers, thus giving the line an air of luxury and class not seen elsewhere.
Thanks to the Lefebvre family, the company is still privately owned, and has grown from four ships to ten since its inception in the early 90’s. Based in Monaco, Silversea itineraries carry passengers around the world, with 900 destinations in total.
