The spiffy little Silver Cloud, a member of Silversea Cruises' fleet of small luxury ships, is the slightly older, nearly identical twin of the Silver Wind (they were both launched in 1994). While slightly different in decor, it provides the same wonderful cruise experience as its twin sister, Silver Wind and the larger, newer Silver Shadow and . A pure delight, everything about the Silver Cloud is tops. It is elegant without being stuffy, fun, but not too frivolous, ideal for couples who enjoy fine food, sublime service and intimacy, and combined with the truly all-inclusive fare -- it's like cruising on Cloud Nine.
In November 2012, the ship will undergo a stem-to-stern refurbishment during a dry dock in Italy. The ship's interior will be completely renovated with new furniture, carpets, decor and more in all the suites, public spaces and dining venues.

Silver Cloud Dress Code
On "formal" nights most men do the black-tie route (although business suits are acceptable) and women go all out in gorgeous designer numbers. Informal translates to sports jackets for men and jazzy cocktail outfits for women. Casual means no jacket required and women can dress down a bit. Daytime dress is always casual.
