A Cloud With A Silversea Lining

Choosing to sail into polar waters with Silversea has always been a great option if you are looking to add a slice of luxury to your expedition cruise. Their beautiful ship, Silver Explorer, spends the majority of its time in either the Arctic or Antarctic wowing guests with fine dining, sumptuous spa treatments and comfortable public areas from which to view these awesome landscapes.

However, from the end of 2017 there will be a second option to choose from if you wish to head off in search of wildlife and snow-whitened scenery. Silver Cloud, currently sailing itineraries around Cape Town and the Med, will head into dry dock in August 2017 and be transformed into a ship fit for the most stylish of expeditions.

The upgrades will range from strengthening the vessel’s hull in order to make it an ice-class ship to re-styling the cabins to make them the largest in the expedition cruising sector. The all-suite ship will offer verandas in 80% of the accommodation, 18 zodiacs will be brought on board for shore excursions and a team of experts will join you to offer in-depth lectures.

There will be space for just 200 guests when Silver Cloud is sailing through polar waters, meaning that you can enjoy the highest space-to-guest ratios in these regions and a crew-to-guest ratio of 1:1. Limiting the number of passengers on board means that there will plenty of room on deck to look out for whales and polar bears.

Other features already in place on board the ship include a stylish pool deck, spa, panorama lounge and grill restaurant. Anyone that has sailed with Silversea in the past will be aware of the elegance that oozes from these public areas and so they’re sure to provide a comfortable way to travel to the most remote destinations on Earth. It is rare that guests have the luxury of a butler and pillow menu when they visit Antarctica but that’s exactly what you can look forward to on board the new-look Silver Cloud.
