August 2017 will see the start of an exciting refurbishment plan for Silver Cloud. The yacht-like cruise ship will be converted into an ice-class ship and moved to Silversea’s luxury expedition fleet in November 2017.
Silver Cloud has set an impeccable standard of ultra-luxury cruising as the all-suite inaugural ship for Silversea Cruises. Spacious yet intimate, the smaller sized ship currently accommodates 296 guests and embodies the atmosphere of a grand hotel.
Post refurbishment and in preparation for itineraries including polar-regions, Silver Cloud will limit guest numbers to 200. Ensuring a comfortable cruise for all onboard and complying with sustainable tourism guidelines.
"By converting Silver Cloud into an ice-class ship for our expedition fleet, we will be better positioned to meet the increasing demand for comfortable adventure travel, particularly to the Arctic and Antarctica, places that are best explored by small ships specially equipped with ice-strengthened hulls." Said Silversea CEO Enzo Visone.
As members of the Association of Arctic Expedition Cruise Operators and the International Association of Antarctic Tour Operators, Silversea Cruises will continue to uphold sustainable practice to help preserve our delicate polar regions.
Silver Cloud will also continue to cruise to non-polar regions, during which times ship capacity will meet 260 guests.
