YES, Jimmy, love to see and hear more as to how this updating is working and progressing. Have done four cruises on the Silver Cloud, including Norway, Amazon River, Africa, etc. Lots of great memories from being on the Cloud.

THANKS! Enjoy! Terry in Ohio

From our Jan. 25-Feb. 20, 2015, Amazon River-Caribbean adventure that started in Barbados, here is the link for that live/blog. Many visuals from this amazing river and Caribbean Islands (Dutch ABC's, St. Barts, Dominica, Grenada, San Juan, etc.):

Many thanks Bill.

Looking forward to seeing the final musified Cloud Expedition and hoping to view internally in the Spring.

Thanks Bill.
I tried to communicate using your technique for smoke signals, but it's way too rainy and humid where I live.
I enjoyed the photos of the Cloud which also prompted me to finally look up and learn about the functionality of the bulbous bow. Apparently the ancient Greeks also used the bow adaptation on their ships.
Great physics lesson today!

I have to wait until March 7, 2019.

I've read many 'not so great' reviews of the ship. Hopefully, that will change after this major refit.

I really liked the cloud. She has a certain charm and quirkiness.
I hope the refit won't spoil that charisma.

P.S. I thought the ancient Greeks built their 'bulbous bows' for ramming other ships. Did they understand the physics of drag... thus cutting down on 'slave consumption'?
