This wonderful, pioneering ship from 1994 showcased the company’s signature standards of excellence; all suite accommodation ranging from 240 to a palatial 1,314 sq. ft, all inclusive pricing including unlimited wines, spirits and a stocked in-suite bar.
Like her sister ship, the Silver Wind, the entertainment is low key, but of high quality, with extensive lecture enrichment programmes and on shore programmes tailored to meet the high-end guest list on board. Cuisine is simply outstanding, whether taken in the open seating Restaurant, the stunning Terrace Grill or, for more exalted samplings, the ultra chic Le Champagne.
The boutique size of the ship makes her able to enter smaller, more secluded ports that larger ships must bypass. With a capacity of 296 guests served by a crew of 230, service is exemplary and deft throughout the ship as is the standard with any Silversea Cruises' vessel.
Fine quality fixtures and fittings extend throughout the entire ship. Elegant Italian marble, polished brass and hand crafted fabrics give the Silver Cloud a beautiful, European feel.
Spa facilities are extensive and well thought out, and attention to detail and guests alike are, without doubt, two of the highlights of sailing aboard this stunning, gracious ship. No gratuities are ever expected; all are included in the fare.
