Silversea Cruise's first ship, Silver Cloud began sailing in 1994 as a classic and comfortable cruise ship. Today, she has been transformed into a unique and luxurious expedition ship, designed to take a maximum of 254 guests to the most remote locations on the planet. Having been reinforced with steel to increase strength and maneuverability, she can tackle the trickiest of destinations - including the polar regions.
The design of Silver Cloud is such that those who seek an expedition trip do not need to sacrifice on luxury. Elegant as a grand hotel, and as welcoming as a long-term friend's home, the Silver Cloud is the very definition of opulence, and has all-suite accommodation throughout. Her size is ideal for highly personal cruising in a top quality environment, and with a minimum of 20 expedition experts onboard, you can be confident in the knowledge that your journey will be an enriching one.
The vertical cake-layer stacking of public rooms aft, and the location of accommodation units forward, ensures suites are quiet and comfortable at all times. There is a synthetic turf covered wrap around promenade deck outdoors, and a spacious swimming pool deck with aluminium/teak deck furniture.
Few ships make it to a Berlitz five-star rating these days, but Silversea cruises has earned an enviable reputation for high quality, particularly when it comes to cuisine.
Italians are famous for their bounty of their tables and the sheer delight in sitting down to a meal with good company. Here are dishes to intrigue both the palate and the spirit. Always created from the freshest ingredients, servings are both substantial and delightful. A traditional yet imaginative menu is perfectly paired with superb wines and finished with desserts that bring a contented murmur of satisfaction.
