Silver Cloud is one of Silversea’s fleet of luxury cruise ships which explore some of the more remote and exotic parts of the world, including voyages to the Earth’s last true wilderness, Antarctica. This first class superior class ship can carry 254 guests and with 223 staff has a staff/guest ratio which can’t be beaten. However on cruises to Antarctica, guest numbers are held down to 200, so you’ll enjoy plenty of space in the public areas. This reflects the company’s philosophy of offering all-inclusive cruising with exemplary bespoke customer service.
The sleek vessel is of the standard and ambiance of a classic top-of-the-range hotel, with elegant furnishings and sumptuous fabrics embellishing the spacious state rooms. There’s a choice of dining options, including her main restaurant which specialises in continental cuisine, Italian-themed La Terrazza and an outdoor grill. There are no fixed tables or mealtimes, eat when and with whom you like. A further restaurant, La Dame, offers French-style Relais & Chateaux dining (reservation fee applies). There’s also a spa with massage services, fitness room and beauty salon on board. And, of course, there’s a Polar library and state-of-the-art theatre where you can attend lectures and presentations.
