E Silversea’s Silver Cloud, in its first season since being
converted as an expedition ship, recently stopped in Cape
Town after completing the Antarctic leg of its current voyage. Conrad Combrink, Silversea Cruises Senior Vice President Strategic Development Expeditions and Experiences,
said bookings or its first expedition voyages had exceeded
expectations and 75 percent of passengers were first-time
clients, “illustrating the level of demand for a proper luxury
expedition experience”. Silversea now has four expedition
ships and, after the success of the Silver Cloud’s conversion,
Mr. Combrink said it is considering converting its Silver
Wind to ice class for expeditions. Pictured onboard: Michelle
