Silversea Cruises : Silver Cloud Expedition
After extensive refurbishment, Silver Cloud will be the most spacious and comfortable ice class vessel in expedition cruising. Her large suites, her destination itineraries and her unparalleled service make her truly special. Her five dining options will tantalize your taste buds and as 80% of her suites include a veranda, watching a breaching whale or a few cavorting penguins has never been so personal. Broad sweeping decks with multiple open spaces and a swimming pool complete what is surely the most distinctive expedition ship sailing today.
A limited number of guests, particularly with just 200 in polar waters, mean that Silver Cloud has the highest space to guest and crew to guest ratios in expedition cruising. With her 18 zodiacs, possibilities are almost limitless with ship-wide simultaneous explorations. Finally, a team of 19 passionate and dedicated experts are always at hand to ensure your voyage is enhanced every step of the way.
Sparkling with tales of adventure, bonhomie and like-minded friends, The Restaurant offers contemporary, international cuisine created by talented chefs. Menus feature regional specialties unique to the destinations guests visit on their cruise, so don’t be surprised to see a roasted Chilean Sea Bass while cruising the Chilean fjords. During days at sea, choose something from La Collection du Monde, a series of signature dishes created exclusively for Silversea cruises by the Grands Chefs Relais & Châteaux.
Offering the very best of Italian cuisine, La Terrazza’s freshly made authentic a la carte dishes are complimented by a wide range of complimentary wines, even in the most remote of destinations. Using only the best seasonal produce, La Terrazza offers a buffet for breakfast and lunch with indoor or al fresco seating, and is transformed into an intimate Italian restaurant for dinner.
The world’s southernmost Relais & Châteaux restaurant can only be found aboard the Silver Cloud Expedition. After a day of trekking through tundra and whale watching, indulge in an evening of palate pampering, where fine wines are complemented by a set tasting menu of regionally-inspired dishes in an intimate, elegant setting. An extraordinary six-course experience celebrating the world’s most distinguished wine regions complete what is surely the finest dining at sea.
Per guest reservation fee of US$40.
POOL BAR & GRILL
Casual and convenient. Poolside menu options feature light fare for lunch. As the stars begin to peek out from a darkening sky, the top deck of the Pool Bar & Grill is transformed into The Grill – an intimate al fresco eatery featuring a fun, interactive Black Rock Grill experience. A preheated volcanic rock is brought to your table, allowing you to cook your meal exactly to your liking right at your own table. And what a table it is. Laden with delectable morsels, every seat has an unmatched ocean view: in short everything you would expect, and more.
Perfect for presentations, lectures, and video screenings, this is where a team of dedicated experts share their knowledge on specialized subjects, not to mention their infectious passion and energy. Multi-tiered show lounge and banquette style seating ensure that you enjoy every minute of the talk and, with lectures being streamed live to your suite if desired, this is one of the very few lecture theatres at sea to combine comfort with such technology.
The Panorama Lounge is specially designed to provide an uninterrupted view of the day’s destination from the comfort of the luxury cruise ship’s interior. This is an ideal place to unwind on your cruise, enjoy afternoon tea, listen to the pianist, and watch the setting sun. The drinks are complimentary, the music live and inviting. Enjoy dancing to a range of musical styles for every taste from standards to the latest club mixes.
