About Silversea Cruises

When founding Silversea in 1990 the Roman family Lefebvre had the plan to offer cruises with more style and with a higher standard than others. This aim has been achieved and today Silversea offers one of the most luxurious products in the world of cruise ships. All of the ships are relatively small so that interesting routings and special ports of call all over the globe are on offer.


The Silver Cloud Expedition

After an extensive refurbishment in November 2017, the Silver Cloud will be converted into an ice-class expedition ship and join Silversea’s Expedition fleet. From then on the luxury cruise liner will sail on itineraries to Arctic and non-arctic regions. A team of 18 zodiacs ensures your voyage is enhanced every step of the way. Thanks to the limited passenger capacity, with just 200 in polar waters, the Silver Cloud Expedition is the most spacious and comfortable ice class vessel in expedition cruising. On cruises to non-polar regions the 157 meters large ship can accommodate up to 260 passengers.



The suites on board of the Silver Cloud Expedition are very spacious and comfortable. All staterooms are equipped with a marble bathroom, a walk-in closet, Italian linen and a pillow selection. Depending on the category they are between 22 and 44 square meters large. Additionally most of the suites include a veranda, from where watching a breaching whale or a few cavorting penguins has never been so personal.


Atmosphere on Board

The onboard language is English. Due to its passengers from all around the world the atmosphere is very cosmopolitan. The age of the passengers is mixed, but mostly up from 45 years. You should dress smart casual and suitable to the weather during the day. In the evenings there will also be formal occasions where men should wear a dark suit or tuxedo and women a cocktail dress. Because there are only few children on board the atmosphere is very calm.


Food and Beverages

The Silver Cloud Expedition has five restaurants with diverse culinary offers to tantalise your taste buds. Enjoy contemporary, international cuisine created by talented chefs in an elegant restaurant or try a juicy steak at “The Grill”. On the Silversea ships many of the amenities are already included in the price, so that you can enjoy a glass of wine or Champaign without any additional charge.


Entertainment, Sports and Relaxation

As a guest on board of the Silver Cloud Expedition you have various options to make yourself comfortable. Enjoy beautiful ocean views at the Panorama Lounge, get entertained at the show lounge or try your luck with a game of cards at the Card Room. The spa offers a wide range of invigorating therapies including facials, body wraps and massages. A modern fitness centre is waiting for everyone who needs some action.


Our Summary

If you love Italian flair and like to go on a smaller ship with international lifestyle at the highest level, you should travel with Silver Cloud Expedition. Please consider that many amenities which come at costs on other vessels are already included on the Silversea ships.
