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.
