Life aboard Silver Cloud Expedition
In August 2017 Silver Cloud’s hull was strengthened to handle ice floes in the Antarctic, and she rejoined Silversea’s expedition ships as Silver Cloud Expedition, with fewer and larger staterooms. For Antarctic expeditions guests will drop from 260 to 200, to meet onshore restrictions for the continent. With 18 Zodiac inflatables all guests will land ashore daily. These will be premium explorer voyages, with a level of luxury provided by only a very few cruise lines. Until late February 2018 Silver Cloud Expedition sails from Ushuaia to Antarctica Peninsula and South Shetland Islands over 10 nights. As the year progresses she cruises up the west coast of Africa, stopping at small ports never visited by other cruise ships; around the UK, far north of the Arctic Circle to Longyearbyen, west to Iceland, Greenland (through the awe-inspiring Prince Christian Sound), and the Maritime States; across the Panama Canal and south to Ushuaia again. Through 2019 Silver Cloud Expedition repeats the same program with variations of ports.

After her extensive refurbish in August 2017, what can guests expect? Butler service, casual attire and open-seated dining, genuine hospitality, and all-inclusive service are some of the pleasures. On shore your fare includes hosted adventures lead by scientists and destination experts. Your fellow guests will be discerning, well-travelled couples (mostly over 50) who prefer a small ship setting, gourmet food, fine service and elegant surrounds. The ship will cater to your pampering, fitness, shopping, and contact-with-the-outside-world needs. Attention to detail on Silver Cloud is impeccable. As one guest said, “it’s like cruising on ‘cloud nine’”.

Accommodation
This is a luxury small ship. All staterooms are suites with outside views, 75% of which have private teakwood balconies. Staterooms are large by industry standards, with twin beds or queen-size bed, and a sitting area with sofa, chairs, coffee table and replenished refrigerator and bar. Other amenities include marbled bathroom with full-sized bath, walk-in robe with personal safe, vanity table with hair dryer, a writing desk, flat screen TV with DVD, and direct-dial telephone. Some suites can accommodate a third person. All accommodations come with Butler service.

There are seven grades of suites. Silver Suites accommodate three guests. Royal and Grand Suites can join a Verandah Suite to make two bedrooms, and Owner’s Suite joins with a Vista Suite. Suites have progressively larger sitting, dining, and balcony areas, and increased outside-viewing. Royal, Grand and Owner’s Suites feature extended butler service, coffee machine, and a good amount of free time using the Internet and world-wide telephone, plus a large range of extra niceties that centre on personal service. Nothing a guest could wish for is missing. Two Vista Suites are wheelchair-accessible.

Food and Dining
The main dining room provides open-seating dining, set with fine china and silverware. Multi-course à la carte gourmet meals are served at all hours, accompanied by liberal complimentary wines. The alternative à la carte restaurant La Terrazza serves a selection of Italy’s best cuisine. La Terrazza is open for casual, buffet-style breakfast and lunch with indoor or al fresco dining on the outdoor terrace.

The only Wine Restaurant by Relais & Châteaux at sea can be found aboard the ships of Silversea. Indulge in an evening at Le Champagne where fine wines are complemented by a set tasting menu of regionally inspired dishes in an intimate, elegant setting. As for breakfast, most prefer to be served in their suite. A 24-hour in-cabin dining service delivers course-by-course to your suite balcony. A poolside grill provides light options with salads. Retire to the Panorama or Observation lounges for drinks and conversation.

Entertainment
Silver Perspectives is an enrichment program that delivers lectures, informal talks and demonstrations to enrich your understanding of the countries and peoples you meet, delivered by guest lecturers and consultants. Some voyages are based on a theme – ‘Cultural Voyage’ or ‘Culinary and Wine Voyage’. Activities include wine tastings and cooking demonstrations, lectures, language lessons, dance classes, bridge, ever-popular Trivia, and the Silver Links golf program.

Evening entertainment in the Show Lounge may include a production show, solo entertainers and local presentations. For quiet time retire to the library, the small casino, or the Internet café. For health and fitness there are the small gym, fitness classes, and The Spa that offers are variety of treatments, a steambath and sauna. Personal trainers can design a lifestyle programme just for you. On the top deck are a pool and deck chair space. Fares are inclusive of gratuities.
