Silversea Cruises reimagined Silver Cloud arrives in Antarctica on her first luxury expedition voyage to the White Continent.
Silversea’s first crossover luxury expedition ship arrived successfully in Antarctica this week, marking her maiden visit to the remote continent following a US$40 million refurbishment and conversion into an ice-class polar expedition ship.
Currently sailing a 10-night Antarctic Peninsula expedition roundtrip from Ushuaia, guests are being treated to vistas of towering icebergs, snow-capped mountains, and awe-inspiring wildlife aboard the completely refitted ship that includes the only Relais & Châteaux restaurant at sea.
Silversea’s first crossover luxury expedition vessel can accommodate 254 guests, further limited to just 200 when cruising in polar waters. Most of her all-suite accommodations feature generous private verandas along with luxury touches that include a choice of European bath amenities, butler service for all guests, and sumptuous Pratesi bedding and a nine-option pillow menu.
Silver Cloud will offer 10-day roundtrip luxury expedition voyages to Antarctica through February, when she will embark on a thrilling journey from the southernmost tip of South America to the southernmost point of South Africa. From there, she will wind her way up the overlooked western coast of Africa to the natural beauty of Northern Europe and Arctic Svalbard. Her summers will be spent in the High Arctic, cruising in and out of the ice-filled bays and fjords of Iceland, Greenland, and Arctic Canada in search of polar bears, whales and walruses.
After an exciting mini-season spent in Central and South America, Silver Cloud returns to Antarctica again next fall for another series of expedition voyages to the White Continent.
