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.

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.
