Silver Cloud Expedition Fleet




Following a multi-million dollar refurbishment, Silver Cloud’s transformation into an ice-class vessel is nearly complete, soon to be unveiled as the most luxurious expedition ship in the market. Destined largely for the Arctic and Antarctic, Silver Cloud can now proudly join Silversea Cruises’ exclusive expedition fleet. Silver Cloud will commence her official inaugural voyage on the 15th of November 2017 from Buenos Aires.

Silver Cloud has an unprecedented set of expedition features and technical interventions to allow navigation in polar-regions, including.

  • New navigational equipment including state-of-the-art Sonar and Thermal Imaging equipment to increase visibility over the ice during navigation;
  • A system to navigate at slow speed to allow for more precise maneuvering in the presence of ice; Silver Cloud will have 22 expedition team members in polar-regions and 19 in non-polar regions, offering more than 1 expedition staff to every 10 guests. Guest will benefit from:
  • Company-first Polar Sea Kayaking Programme: complimentary dedicated kayak guides, guided by three experts, which allow guests to explore closer than ever before;
  • Complimentary, fully-escorted shore programmes, including Zodiac exploration in some of the most remote destinations;
  • 16 Zodiacs on board, Silversea’s largest Zodiac fleet;
  • The Explorer Lounge, one of the most advanced lecture rooms in the industry, with state-of-the-art audiovisual equipment with unobstructed views to three large screens;
  • Briefings and destination lectures delivered daily in the Explorer Lounge, broadcast live and recorded for in-suite playback;
  • A bespoke Photo Studio to allow guests to edit and print their images with assistance and training from the professional Studio Manager.
