Next, you’ll make your way to Svalbard in search of polar bears, walrus and seals amongst the fascinating landscapes, mountains, fjords and glaciers. Weather permitting, the zodiac boats and guided shore walks with the dedicated Expedition Team will allow for an even closer look.

Complete with five dining options, sweeping decks with multiple open spaces and a swimming pool Silver Cloud represents what is surely the most distinctive expedition ship sailing today.
