Ship Facts: Silver Cloud Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Silver Cloud Deck Plans
Filled our expectations
We booked the cruise because of the area it covered and we were not disappointed. Southern Chile and Argentina were beautiful, sparse, and definitely off the beaten track. The Argentine government had threatened to not service the ship on arrival in Buenos Aires because of the Falklands stop, but rescinded that threat after we left Valparaiso. Cruise director Judy Abbott stated that in 7 trips to the Falklands she had only debarked twice due to weather, so we felt blessed by good weather the entire cruise. The Beagle Channel was fascinating. Glaciers,and some of the most desolate scenery in the world.

The dining room was always open seating. The 3 restaurants (Le Champagne, Terrazza (menu change every 4 nights), and the pool deck required reservations, but that was no problem. The food and the service were up to their high standards. My only complaint was the last night was exceptionally hot in the Dining room due to a ship air conditioning problem.

We had a butler (never thought I would need one). He assisted us on a couple of occasions.

The suites now have a shower vice bathtub. A noticeable improvement.

The entertainment was a singing group. They were OK, and performed at the pool party. This was a lively crowd as people danced to disco music for at least 2 hours after the pool buffet.

The ship tours were fine. We took one to San Rafael glacier and 2 others to towns.There are private tours available at most of the ports, or book them on line.

The few days at sea were spent either playing bridge, reading or listening to lectures. At no time did the cruise appear boring.
