Luxury cruise broker, Silversea Cruises, have released a selection of renderings showcasing their ship Silver Cloud’s new interiors ahead of her conversation into an ice-class expedition ship in August this year.

The new renderings highlight the luxurious design of Silver Cloud’s public spaces, including La Terrazza, the restaurant; Observation Lounge; Panorama Lounge; and Venetian Lounge. Silver Cloud will also feature a new gym with Technogym equipment.

In addition to these interior updates, the multi-million dollar refurbishment will strengthen Silver Cloud’s hull, enabling her to explore polar waters. This transition to an ice-class vessel will bring expedition guests the luxury, style and comfort synonymous with Silversea’s classic ships, along with the intrepid exploration opportunities in colder regions. A capacity of just 200 in polar regions means guests will enjoy the highest levels of personalised and attentive service on board. The limited capacity in polar regions also means that all guests can disembark at the same time to explore each region.

“As the first ship in our fleet, Silver Cloud has a special place in Silversea’s history,” said Barbara Muckermann, Chief Marketing Officer at Silversea Cruises. “We look forward to welcoming guests aboard to experience Silver Cloud’s luxurious interiors as well as her incredible itineraries later this year.”

When Silver Cloud was launched in 1994 by Antonio Lefebvre, it set a new standard in luxury cruising. His son, Manfredi Lefebvre, became chairman of Silversea in 2001 and has since expanded the fleet from four to eight vessels, with a ninth currently under construction. The expansion included the introduction of expedition cruising with the launch of Silver Explorer in 2008, where the refurbishment to Silver Cloud entails new possibilities in this market.
