Silver Cloud is a small luxury cruise ship that offers expedition-style travel experiences for no more than 254 guests.

The ship initially joined Silversea in 1994 as part of the line’s ‘classic’ fleet. However, in 2017 Silver Cloud underwent extensive renovations and is now ice-classified, allowing her to offer expedition cruises to remote destinations, including the Arctic and Antarctica.

Onboard, Silver Cloud is surprisingly spacious and offers larger accommodations than you would typically find on a ship this size. The public spaces – such as the Panorama Lounge and the lavish Zagara Spa – exude Silversea’s customary take on sophisticated elegance. As you might expect, the onboard service is exceptional, with Silver Cloud boasting one of expedition cruising’s highest crew-to-guest ratios.

Silver Cloud is the ideal choice if you seek an expedition cruise aboard a vessel that retains the luxury of a five-star ship. The intimate onboard environment contrasts nicely with the opportunities to explore, with frequent Zodiac trips and daily shore excursions led by Silversea Expedition Team.

Activities, Entertainment & Facilities

Silver Cloud Zodiac Excursion in Antarctica

Antarctica Zodiac excursion.

The majority of activities you can enjoy on Silver Cloud revolve around exploration and discovery. The ship carries a fleet of 18 Zodiacs deployed daily for shore landings and sight-seeing excursions, all of which are escorted by the Expedition Team.

During days at sea – and for those who’d prefer to stay on board during a port day – the ship offers a large pool deck with ample seating, a swimming pool, and whirlpools. You can watch movies in the ship’s Explorer Lounge or enjoy some quiet time in the Panorama Lounge in the afternoon. Alternatively, for fantastic views of the passing scenery, the Tor Observation Lounge is located at the top of the ship and offers comfortable seating and bar service.

Daily lectures and presentations are held in Silver Cloud’s Explorer Lounge and generally focus on places and ports you will visit on your voyage. These talks are highly recommended and help to enhance the time you spend ashore.

For the ultimate relaxation, head to Silver Cloud’s Zagara Spa, where you can choose from an extensive menu of treatments, including massages and body wraps. There’s definitely something to be said for receiving a spa treatment while Silver Cloud cuts through the ice, deep in the Antarctic Peninsula!

The entertainment programme is low-key, so don’t expect Broadway-style shows or cabaret acts. Instead, guests are encouraged to mingle in the Dolce Vita bar or take in a performance from the ship’s resident singers in the Venetian Lounge. The Connoisseur’s Corner is also a popular spot and offers a range of high-end cognacs and cigars.

The other facilities on Silver Cloud include a fitness centre, boutique, a casino and a card room.
