With 18-brand new Zodiacs, four superlative restaurants in Antarctica and a pole to pole expedition itinerary, Silver Cloud really does break the ice between expedition and luxury.

After extensive refurbishment, Silver Cloud is 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 four dining options will tantalise 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.

Few experiences can compare to a visit to Antarctica. You’ll pass diamond-blue icebergs the size of city blocks. You will make Zodiac® landings on remote beaches where few have ever set foot, enjoying personal, up-close encounters with the many marvels. And you’ll gaze amazed at nature in its most pristine, unadulterated form.

Our expeditions operate during the austral summer months, when the continent is at its most spectacular. The pack ice begins to melt from late November to early December, signaling the mating season for penguins and other birds. Antarctica’s warmest days span from mid-December to January; the perfect time to witness penguins hovering over their downy chicks, while playful seal pups are also visible. Whale sightings become increasingly numerous as the receding ice opens new channels for explorations. The late summer, from January to end of February, is the time when dolphins and whale sightings are at a peak. Penguin chicks begin to fledge and snow algae is blooming.

Whether it’s attending a briefing, exploring by Zodiac, or hiking on terra firma, an expedition cruise with Silversea will immerse you immediately in your destination. Every moment can amaze: scores of penguins battling their way up a hill, a whale so close you can count the barnacles on its back. To the left are just some of the species you may encounter.


Antarctic Peninsula

Remote and otherworldly, Antarctica is irresistible for its spectacular iceberg sculptures and calving glaciers, and for the possibility of up-close encounters with marine mammals and the iconic penguins. The Antarctic Peninsula – the main peninsula closest to South America – has a human history of almost 200 years, with explorers, sealers, whalers, and scientists who have come to work, and eventually intrepid visitors coming to enjoy this pristine and remote wilderness. It is a region of protected bays, unscaled snow-capped mountains, vast glaciers and a few places where whalers or scientists have worked. Just as irresistible are the many Gentoo and Chinstrap Penguin colonies, the seals basking on ice floes, and the opportunity to witness whales and orcas.


Antarctic Sound

The Antarctic Sound is a stretch of water named after the first ship to have passed through this body of water from the Bransfield Strait to the Weddell Sea in 1902. The Antarctic eventually sank, but only after enduring extreme hardships before the crew and scientists could be rescued. At Paulet, Hope Bay and Brown Bluff, Adélie and Gentoo Penguins breed, as do Kelp Gulls and Cape Petrels, Snow Petrels and Skuas. The Sound’s main attractions are the spectacular tabular icebergs that come from the Larsen Ice Shelf further south, a featured that has earned this stretch of water the moniker Iceberg Alley.


Drake Passage

Named after 16th-century English privateer Sir Francis Drake, this 800-kilometer (500 mile) wide body of water that separates the southern tip of South America from the South Shetland Islands of Antarctica, has a notorious reputation for its turbulent seas due to the westerly winds and the funneling effect of the passage. The Antarctic Convergence, a natural boundary where cold polar water flows northward and warmer equatorial water moves southward, is within the Drake Passage. When these two currents meet, nutrients are pushed to the surface, often attracting a multitude of seabirds and whales. Black-browed Albatross, Sooty Shearwaters and White-chinned Petrels glide in the air currents alongside and in the wake of the ship.


South Shetland Islands

The closest Antarctic islands to South America, the South Shetland Islands are usually the first islands to be visited and are home to 16 research stations. Chinstrap, Adélie, Gentoo and Macaroni Penguins all breed here. In addition, because it is the warmest part of Antarctica, large moss beds as well as orange, black, grey and green lichens grow – even hair grass and pearlwort manage to survive. Leopard seals, Weddell seals, crabeater seals, Southern elephant seals and Antarctic fur seals can be seen in the water and on the beaches.


Ushuaia

Argentina’s — and indeed, the world’s — southernmost city is much more than a gateway to Antarctica. At roughly 55 degrees south, this 71,000-resident town at the heart of Tierra del Fuego is closer to the South Pole than to Argentina’s northern border with Bolivia. Nature is the principal attraction here, with trekking, fishing, horseback riding and wildlife spotting among the most rewarding activities, especially in Tierra del Fuego National Park.
