Global Morning News – Expedition Cruising

Posted on: June 17, 2023

Expedition cruising is so popular now. But when you say expedition you are not just going on a rough and tumble vacation – on this expedition you are cruising luxury style on an expedition ship.

Sail on the beautiful Silver Cloud, part of Silversea Cruises incredible expedition fleet. With just 254 passengers on board and 212 crew members you know that you are getting unparalleled service. This expedition ship is outfitted with all the stuff for fun adventure like 20 brand new zodiacs, 10 kayaks and experienced guides to take you to out of the way places. On board there are 4 beautiful dining venues, casual eating places, a gym, a spa – everything you could need. There is even an onboard photo studio offering professional level tools to retouch or print your photos. The Explorer Lounge is where you gather in the evenings to hear from dedicated experts in their field of specialisation. This makes your journey even more meaningful.

Let’s look at the itinerary.

  • Start in Walvis Bay, Namibia.
  • This is a bird lovers’ paradise – nestled between the coast and the Namib Desert.
  • Continue along the coast and visit Luderitz a German heritage town home to tons of penguins.
  • Then along the Diamond Coast – which used to be a busy place when diamonds were first discovered there – now much quieter.
  • Onto the South African coast – more birds, more adventure, hiking, kayaking and culinary surprises.
