Silversea Cruises’ Silver Cloud underwent an extensive refurbishment this year and was transformed into the 16,800-ton, 254-guest Silver Cloud Expedition. When she joins the Silversea Expeditions fleet in November 2017, this “ice class” ship will become the most luxurious, spacious and comfortable in the expedition cruise sector.
One of the many benefits of the limited guest numbers onboard in the polar region is a pampering crew-to-guest ratio of nearly one-to-one. A fleet of 18 Zodiaks will whisk you to some of the world’s most pristine and memorable destinations for in-depth exploration. A team of nearly 20 experts in a variety of fields will give lectures and venture out to guide cruisers on special excursions.
Silver Cloud Expedition will feature broad sweeping decks, open spaces and plentiful amenities, including a swimming pool. After a day of adventure, unwind at the Zagara Spa, a soothing sanctuary offering treatments such as massages, facials, body wraps and more. In this area you’ll also discover the men’s and women’s sauna and steam rooms. A full range of services is available at the beauty salon. State-of-the-art equipment, including treadmills, elliptical trainers, free weights and more await you at the fitness center, where personal trainers are also available. Make time for shopping at the stunning boutiques with their modern design and exciting finds.
Delightful lounges provide a perfect backdrop to enjoy the views and great conversation with fellow travelers over cocktails. Settle into a cozy chair at Connoisseur’s Corner and savor a premium cigar along with a cognac in its club-like atmosphere. If you are seeking exceptional views head to Tor’s observation lounge, which serves as an ideal destination for scenic viewing due to its forward, top-of-the-ship, location.
Presentations, lectures and video screenings are hosted at the multi-tiered Explorer Lounge. Dolce Vita serves complimentary cocktails and is a delightful venue for conversation, live music and dancing.

The luxury expedition ship will also be the only one with multiple dining venues.
