  1. All the details are now on the SS website, ship-by-ship, and month-by-month, so plenty to look at!
  2. Carla is absolutely correct. We have had an amazing cruise. 3 scheduled landings in the Falklands, 5 landings plus a zodiac cruise in South Georgia, a difficult (but achieved) landing on Tristan da Cunha, two zodiac cruises at Gough Island (it was never intended to land - it is not allowed), and circumnavigations by ship at Inaccessible and Nightingale Islands. Unavoidable heavy swells prevented zodiac cruising at Inaccessible and a possible landing at Nightingale. All this thanks to a superb Expedition Leader, an excellent Captain, and their very capable respective teams. I shall post a full review in due course.
  3. We came aboard in Bridgetown today and first impressions are that the ship looks magnificent. All the soft furnishings have been renewed and the colour schemes are delightful; understated elegance throughout. This is the first stage of conversion to an expedition/cruise ship which will be completed in 2020. We travelled earlier this year on Silver Cloud to Antarctica and were very impressed with the conversion and the efficiency with which the ship was run. So much so that we have booked two further expedition cruises on Silver Cloud for 2019. Silversea 'ticks all the boxes' for us, where other cruise lines do not!
