Silver Cloud makes her debut in Antarctica following $40m dollar rebirth

Silver Cloud set sail this week from Buenos Aires on her first-ever expedition voyage following a $40m refurbishment and conversion to an ice-class expedition ship.

Over the course of 16 days, the newly reimagined Silversea ship is exploring the iceberg sculptures, calving glaciers, and rare and majestic wildlife of Antarctica.

“We are proud to celebrate this momentous occasion when the ship that launched Silversea on a path to redefine luxury travel now embarks on a new path to redefine expedition cruising,” said Roberto Martinoli, Silversea’s CEO.

The completely transformed Silver Cloud accommodates 254 guests (200 in polar waters) in updated suites, most featuring a private veranda. Her elegantly redesigned public spaces include the new Tor’s Observation Lounge, offering commanding views of the scenery.

A fleet of 16 Zodiacs provides the opportunity for up-close exploration, while 10 kayaks offer a personalised experience of nature in the polar realms.

Depending on the region, between 20 and 22 dedicated Expedition Team members are at hand to share their considerable knowledge and insights. They give lectures in the multi-tiered Explorer Lounge, run workshops, lead Zodiac and kayak trips, and guide nature walks—all of which is complimentary.

Following her first season in Antarctica, Silver Cloud will trace a path up Africa’s seldom-seen western coast to Northern Europe and the Norwegian Arctic, where she will spend the summer sailing glacier-filled bays and fjords in search of polar bears, whales, walruses and other amazing wildlife. Then, a series of expeditions to Iceland, Greenland, Canada, and Central and South America will culminate with a return to Ushuaia for another season of exhilarating Antarctic expeditions.
