Words cannot descibe Antarctica

Review for a Antarctica Cruise on Silver Cloud Expedition

Baggysmum
2-5 Cruises • Age 70s

Silver Cloud has an amazing crew in all departments. Our cabin was well-appointed and comfortable, the restaurants were very good, front desk very helpful. The Expedition team were superb, and great fun too. An expedition cruise has a different vibe to a trip cruise. It is full of anticipation and excitement and every day can change from the immediate itinerary owing to weather, wildlife and other ...

Essentially a reposition cruise, Artic to Antarctic. At sea days punctuated with short drive-by visits to out-of-the-way locations where there little to see or do.

This was essentially a reposition cruise, Artic to Antarctic, but was not advertised as such. Ship is old and very much showing her age, significant water leak into observation lounge during rain storms, several cabins flooded due to air conditioning leaks, many areas of ship were quite warm on hot days. Too many stops, for too little time at each stop, focus was on quantity not quality. At ...

Great but could improve

2-5 Cruises • Age 60s

We had a great time in Antartica and it was a great experience overall to travel with silversea. Our trip was door to door, we paid a bit more than port to port to have a complete experience. Once on Board everything went well, great crew, amazing food, very clean cabin and amazing bartenders. Cabin was comfortable, clean and spacious. we were never disappointed. The excursions were well ...

Great Expedition/Very Tired Ship

Review for a Antarctica Cruise on Silver Cloud Expedition

FFOCLO56
10+ Cruises • Age 60s

An Expedition to Antarctica was a dream come true. One cannot describe how magnificent this experience is -- from the wildlife, to the glaciers, to the ice scapes, the kayaking in antarctic waters, the zodiac experiences, the enrichment, the great service, etc. it was amazing. The Silver Cloud, however, is a very tired ship. It is screaming for an upgrade. The furniture is a bit ragged and ...

Amazing destination, great experience - but cut short

Review for a Antarctica Cruise on Silver Cloud Expedition

10+ Cruises • Age 70s

We chose this itinerary specifically - the Falklands, South Georgia, South Shetlands, Elephant Island (Shackelton) and the Antarctic peninsula plus cruising Cape Horn on the way in to Puerto Williams. We got the first three but not the last three. With the itinerary, Silversea was the only line (this year) that offered "the whole experience." The Silver Cloud staff were fantastic, the ship was ...

Premium price but not premium service and food

Review for a Antarctica Cruise on Silver Cloud Expedition

6-10 Cruises • Age 20s

We booked this cruise 3 years ago before COVID hits. We finally got to go after many cancel, and price increase. May be we had bad luck, regardless, the Silverseas did not make it right for us. Overall it was disappointing for us. On the day we start the journey, we loss a pre-cruise hotel night to tour and rest due to tornado at Dallas, notice was last minute just hours before boarding ...

Review for a Transatlantic Cruise on Silver Cloud Expedition

John Worldwide
10+ Cruises • Age 80s

This cruise started in Dakar and we got off in Rio de Janeiro. It went on to Buenos Aires with some of the passengers and some new ones. On this cruise we booked door to door service which was a first for us and which was it a mixture of good and bad. For example the car service hired by Silversea to pick us up and bring us back from JFK was great. Arrivals and departures at hotels reserved by ...

Great time with the expedition but sub-par hotel services

Review for a Arctic Cruise on Silver Cloud Expedition

mybacin
2-5 Cruises • Age 30s

This was my first time on an expedition cruise. Overall, it was a memorable trip, having a chance to get showed by an enthusiastic expedition team in this pristine part of the world. In fact, the expedition team was the highlight of this cruise. They were resourceful, upbeat and passionate. The itinerary of activities was diverse, from cruising along the ice edge, hiking the glacier, to doing a ...

This is not the same Silversea as before the sale to Royal Caribbean

Review for a Arctic Cruise on Silver Cloud Expedition

GeorgicaPond
10+ Cruises • Age 60s

I did two back to back, supposedly expedition, cruises from London to Svalbard. After many years of traveling almost exclusively with Silversea, I am heartbroken to join the other reviewers who say, "Never again." The cruise was supposed to be on the Wind. Silversea changed it to the Cloud after I had booked. I am a long time Explorer passenger, a wonderful ship that they have now sold ...

OLD ship, shows its age. Way over priced. Never again.

Review for a World Cruise Cruise on Silver Cloud Expedition

wfisher
10+ Cruises • Age 60s

Overall disappointing and overpriced. Will not sail Silversea again. Pros: Attentive Butler Good Food 24 hour room service Cons: Ship is 28 years old. Really old ship (maiden voyage 1994), should be retired Overpriced for what you get No entertainment or planned on-board activities = bored most of the time TV and movies not available most of the time Very few dining ...
