Silversea Reveals Silver Cloud Refurbishment as Expedition Ship

Silversea Cruises has celebrated ‘one-year-to-go’ until Silver Cloud’s inaugural voyage as an ice-class expedition ship, by releasing detailed renderings of the ship’s refurbishment and conversion due to be completed in November 2017.

Silver Cloud will redefine ‘luxury’ and ‘comfort’ in expedition cruising and the inaugural voyage to Antarctica will provide the highest space-to-guest and crew-to-guest ratios in expedition cruising. A guest capacity of 260 in non-Polar regions and just 200 in Polar regions means that guests will enjoy the highest levels of personalised and attentive service onboard.

Silver Cloud’s transition to the expedition fleet will bring expedition guests the luxury, style and comfort synonymous with Silversea’s classic fleet. The renderings showcase the luxurious, all ocean view suites that will be decorated with new furnishings and upholstery in a refined colour palette. Silver Cloud will have the largest suites in expedition cruising and over 80% of the suites have a private veranda.

A newly released Silver Cloud 2018 digital brochure highlights the ship’s itineraries following her transition into the expedition fleet. During this period she will travel over 70,500 nautical miles, visit almost 190 destinations, with over 380 ports of call, and make more than 30 maiden visits. She will embark on 11 Antarctic and eight Arctic voyages; sail under London’s Tower Bridge; discover the history and culture of Britain and Ireland; explore the Norwegian Fjords; transit the Panama Canal; enjoy culinary discoveries in Europe and South America; and spend Christmas in the Falkland Islands.

The ship will feature 18 new zodiacs, enabling ship-wide simultaneous explorations in groups of no more than 14 people. Silver Cloud will also have a team of up to 19 dedicated experts on hand to ensure guests leave with the best experiences from their voyages, whether they be the sights, the sounds, the history or the stories. Daily presentations and lectures by experts in the state-of-the-art theatre will also be streamed live to all suites.

A video showcasing Silver Cloud as an expedition ship is available here.
The full set of new renderings is available for download on the Silversea Image Library here.

Aer Lingus welcomed a piece of Irish aviation history into its hangar at Dublin airport today as it received a Douglas DC-3 aircraft hailing from the 1940s and 50s and freshly painted in the Aer Lingus livery of that era. The DC-3 was the fifth aircraft type to be operated by Aer Lingus in 1940 and at that time was part of a fleet of just 5, while today’s fleet now stands at 63 aircraft operating more than 100 routes to UK, Europe and North America. The DC-3 aircraft will feature in Bray Air Display and Foynes Air Show this weekend.
