Silver Cloud Cancels Inaugural Expedition Cruise to Antarctica

   November 23, 2017 ,   Accidents

Silversea’s ship Silver Cloud experienced a mechanical malfunction forcing the ship to cancel her inaugural cruise to Antarctica. The ship had to return to Puerto Madryn for the necessary repairs. The next voyage on Silver Cloud, departing from Ushuaia December 1, is due to operate regularly.

Following a US$40 million refurbishment and conversion into ice-class expedition ship, Silver Cloud was sailing from Buenos Aires on her first expedition cruise. Initially scheduled to last for 16 days, the itinerary had to call at a number of Antarctica destinations.

After her inaugural season in Antarctica, the Silver Cloud ship will sail up the western coast of Africa to the Norwegian Arctic and northern Europe, where she will spend the summer season. A series of expeditions to Greenland, Iceland, Canada, Central and South America will follow in a return to Ushuaia for the next season in Antarctica.
