Seafaring exploration is traditionally an arduous mission, replete with lumpy bedding, long days of sailing and nothing but potatoes to eat.

It's a sharp contrast to what expedition members aboard Silversea's sojourns can expect-white-glove services from a personal butler, fine dining and luxury suites.

The Italian luxury cruise company recently christened its third expedition ship in Singapore.

The new vessel, Silver Discoverer, has 62 ocean-view suites, outfitted with amenities like in-suite bars, walk-in rainforest showers and contemporary bathrooms, enhanced with rich marble detailing.

About 80 staff members attend to every whim of the 120 passengers the 103-meter-long craft can carry.

The ship's small size and shallow draft allow close-up access to rugged coasts well beyond the reach of ordinary vessels.

Silversea's senior executive team and company chairman Manfredi Lefebvre d'Ovidio says: "With itineraries encompassing some of the most fascinating and remote regions of the Pacific, Silver Discoverer will take our guests to places where few people have ever set foot-offering incredible opportunities not just for travel and learning but for life-enriching cultural experiences."
