Max Passengers: 260
Ship Type: Luxury Expedition Ship

Experience polar expedition cruising at its finest. After an extensive refurbishment in 2017, the Silver Cloud Expedition will be the most spacious and luxurious ice class vessel. Its five dining options will tantalize your taste buds and as 80% of her suites include a veranda, watching a breaching whale or a few cavorting penguins has never been so personal. Broad sweeping decks with multiple open spaces and a swimming pool complete what is surely the most distinctive expedition ship sailing today.

A limited number of guests, particularly with just 200 in polar waters, mean that Silver Cloud has the highest space to guest and crew to guest ratios in expedition cruising. With her 18 zodiacs, possibilities are almost limitless with ship-wide simultaneous explorations. A team of 19 passionate and dedicated experts are always at hand to ensure your voyage is enhanced every step of the way.

Our guide and driver were very good with their knowledge and were very helpful with our questions. It was a very pleasant visit that would have been impossible to do on our own. Hotels and restaurants were fantastic. The special places we got to go to, like the kitchens, were great. Enjoyed the entire trip!
