I’ve been on 1 small ship cruise.


Antarctica  is definitely a once in a lifetime trip. This was our first ever cruise, our expectations were well and truly exceeded. We were very happy that we chose the Silver Cloud. My husband had done a lot of research before booking — we wanted a trip that was going to give us the ultimate experience in Antarctica. The staff of Silver Cloud certainly achieved this. Everyone from the dining staff to our personal butler and room attendant were fantastic in looking after our every need. (My husband ordered 2 G&T’s one night to our suite, not only did we get our Gins but the whole bottle was delivered).

But I have to say the expedition staff were the people who really made this trip for us. Being able to get out on the Zodiacs twice a day (this was one of the main reasons we chose Silverseas), was fantastic. But their jobs didn’t end here, the expedition team gave lectures and each day we had a recap of the days activities. The team would also have lunch and dinners with the guests. The photo lab on the boat was a great extra to be able to use a computer to upload, etc photos. The entertainment team had plenty of activities arranged for the younger guests, from study sessions to team trivia (even adults were known to join in the trivia). The solo travelers were also looked after with get-togethers. At the end of the trip all guests received a thumb drive with the story and photos of the trip. We just loved our trip and are already looking froward to the next one.
