Silver Cloud Antarctic and Arctic Cruises

A cruise ship that breaks the ice between adventure and luxury

A polar cruise on board the Silver Cloud

Welcome aboard the Silver Cloud, the luxurious expedition ship equipped for adventure and comfort. Spacious, yet intimate, the Silver Cloud accommodates no more than 240 guests. Refurbished in 2017, the cruise ship’s capacity was greatly reduced. Fewer passengers enables faster disembarking thus spending more time on expeditions. With her 1-1 guest to staff ratio, this ship epitomizes exceptional service and enjoyment. The yacht-like Silver Cloud is particularly built for the Arctic and Antarctic. Its smaller size can navigate through more narrow rivers and harbors, while its C Class ice-strengthened hull can safely cruise through floating ice. A cruise aboard the Silver Cloud is one of luxury and excitement.

All suites on the Silver Cloud are elegantly designed and equipped with a butler at your service. About 80% of the suites include a veranda, where you can get up close and personal to extraordinary wildlife right from your bedroom. Some suites also offer 100% ocean views. Can you imagine drinking your morning coffee watching whales breach at your panoramic window? The ship also offers 26 family-friendly suites with a 3-guest capacity. All suites also feature a bar stocked with your favorites, a choice of pillows, complimentary Wi-Fi, a flat-screen TV with an interactive Media Library, and much more.

The Silver Cloud expedition cruises offer a friendly and intimate atmosphere, where guests can feel at home as they embark on a once-in-a-lifetime adventure. In addition to luxurious suites, guests can enjoy plenty of outdoor viewing space on the 700m2 deck and an elegant heated swimming pool for movement or relaxation. In the evening, the outdoor space becomes an open-air dining venue offering classic steakhouse, seafood, vegetarian, and healthy options.

Guests will be able to enjoy the Zàgara Beauty Spa which was first introduced on Silversea’s flagship, Silver Muse. Zàgara combines its beautiful Italian heritage with a nurturing mind and body philosophy, meeting your well-being needs with pride.

The excursions included in your price are led by knowledgeable staff, including marine biologists, geologists, anthropologists, and more. Learn from your 20 Expedition Experts in non-polar regions and 22 in polar regions. The experience is enhanced through the onboard lecture program. Take advantage of the lecture hall where you can hear a wide range of talks, watch photo presentations, and participate in the daily recap.

Unique to Silver Cloud, guests will also benefit from a newly installed Photo Studio where guests can edit content right on board. Guests can take advantage of this creative space and learn to master the art of digital photography. The Photo Studio offers masterclasses, a dedicated photo manager at your service, and an editing suite where guests can turn their incredible photographs into prints. The state-of-the-art equipment accommodates both MAC and PC users.

The Silver Cloud is also equipped with 18 zodiacs offering a closer look at the surroundings and making on-shore explorations possible. 10 complimentary kayaks are also available for those seeking a little extra adventure.

Reviews of Silver Cloud

5/5

What a cruise ! 117 guest and more than 200 crew members... Food and drinks up to Siversea standarts, so very good. And the excursions where great: the crew did everything that was possible. All the organisation was excellent: the pre cruise hotel, transferts, flights (private charters). A cruise never to forget. (Copied from Trip Advisor)

5/5

Wow. This was our third Silversea Expedition voyage and it was everything I expected- Fantastic international expedition staff, spectacular Zodiac landings and cruises, wonderful service. They even showed the Superbowl via satellite internet. We have a future expedition trip booked on the Explorer and I'm looking for more trips to book. I must agree with one reviewer that the LATAM charter from Santiago is problematic- all coach, PACKED, very short seat pitch, lots of waiting for 230 Silversea passengers to be processed coming on and off- it cheapens the Silversea brand for sure. In summary, I am a total Silversea Expedition fan! We did one Lindblad expedition and were put off by the cost, limited quality accommodations, and stand offish expedition staff. In 3 trips with Silversea we've been much happier. (Copied from Trip Advisor)

5++++++ stars! Small ship cruising, making Zodiac landings on Antarctica a breeze! Over-the-top service, staff, meals, crew, expedition staff, entertainment, etc! Wonderful cruise mates with whom you’ll become lifetime friends! Once-in-a-lifetime photos of seals, penguins, birds, glaciers, and maybe even a few killer and humpback whale pods! Book your seventh and final continental landing now with Silversea Cruises and check that box! Only downside is their affiliation with LATAM Airlines, whether it’s a less expensive add-on for Business Class option, or their charter flight needs to/from Ushuaia. LATAM definitely cheapens the Silversea brand: regardless of class-of-service - poor overall service; disorganized, and sometimes chaotic, boarding process; cheap hard-product in Business Class; and, overall poor and struggling reputation.
