Silversea’s inaugural ship launched in 1994 with a spacious yet intimate feel for just 296 passengers. Some describe it as being akin to cruising on a private yacht, and while this certainly proves to be an asset for your travels, it offers further benefits: Mainly, that Silversea can sail to and dock in some of the world’s most remote and exotic ports.
As such, the Silver Cloud is scheduled to provide inspiring takes on standard itineraries – South America, the Caribbean, Europe, and Central America – while going off the beaten path just a bit – in this case, up to Iceland and Greenland.
Silversea designed the Silver Cloud with seven different types of rooms. These range from the economical Vista Suites, featuring 240 square feet, to the Owner’s Suites, at 827 square feet for the two-bedroom option.
Basic amenities, however, are rather luxurious. Butlers are always at your service, while rooms come stocked with a refrigerator and mini-bar according to your preferences. European bath amenities, down duvets, fine linens, and a choice of pillows make for a comfortable stay. Use the binoculars to check out the view from your window or balcony, and stay current with the news provided each day. Wi-Fi, as well, is available but for a fee.
No matter which option you choose, there’s always fresh cuisine onboard the Silver Cloud:
La Terrazza: Silversea serves up the finest Italian cuisine made with the freshest ingredients.
Le Champagne: This is the only Relais & Chateaux wine restaurant on the ocean. Here, a choice of wines is complimented by regionally-inspired dishes.
The Restaurant: Crystal, quality linens, and fine foods all create a sophisticated and elegant atmosphere.
Pool Bar & Grill: Enjoy cocktails with a menu of healthy items, light fare, baked pizza, and other grilled foods.
As well, Silversea’s choice of lounges, including Bar and Connoisseur’s Corner, offer an excellent selection of high-quality alcohols and inviting atmospheres to socialize in the evening.
There’s more than one way to relax on board the Silver Cloud.
Some start by shopping through the duty-free boutique, where you’ll get great deals on designer clothing, fragrances, and jewelry, and then stopping by the salon for a manicure or pedicure afterwards. Others pick the excitement of the casino: Day or night, you never know how far your luck will go.
The Silver Cloud further comes with a Fitness Centre, featuring state-of-the-art equipment and classes. Strengthen your core with a pilates session, or gear up for that long walk in port with a few hours in the gym.
The pool deck beckons many passengers with its inviting teak chaise lounges. Start by taking in the sun’s rays and then relaxing in one of the whirlpools or the larger pool, which is heated to your itinerary’s climate.
The Spa at Silversea is another popular choice. Come by to rejuvenate your mind and body any time during your trip with a series of treatments and therapies: facials, body wraps, massages, and more.
Don’t forget to come by the Show Lounge in the evening. There’s never a bad seat in the house to watch full-scale productions, classical music recitals, cultural entertainment, and films.
