Your Itinerary

After extensive refurbishment, Silver Cloud is the most spacious and comfortable ice class vessel in expedition cruising. Her large suites, her destination itineraries and her unparalleled service make her truly special. Her four dining options will tantalise your taste buds and as 80% of her suites include a veranda, watching a breaching whale or a few cavorting penguins has never been so personal. A limited number of guests in polar waters, mean that Silver Cloud has the highest space to guest and crew to guest ratios in expedition cruising. With her 18 zodiacs, 10 kayaks, possibilities are almost limitless with ship-wide simultaneous explorations.

Praia offers pristine beaches and a coastline full of coves and coral reefs. The city is great for shopping and has a thriving music scene. Visit the Jaqueira Indigenous Protection Reservation to find out more about the cultural and tribal history of the region, or explore the historic old quarter of the city.

Porto Novo has a lively arts and culture scene for its size, as well as great nightlife. You can find some treasures at the market, including pottery and some unusual instruments. The colourful Brazilian mosque is a must-see, and there are some impressive museums and palaces.

Natal is surrounded by stunning white sandy beaches and crystal waters. The city is home to over 20 beaches and is a hub of water sports and amazing snorkelling and diving opportunities. The renowned sand dunes offers thrill seekers hours of fun with sand bugging tours. The city offers an abundance of shops, restaurants and boutiques for those wanting to spend a day shopping and soak in the city’s culture.

In Salvador Bahia you can relax on the beach, soak up the rich history, sample the samba, take a trip to the lighthouse, visit one of the many cathedrals, museums and galleries or watch a traditional cultural show at the Bale Folclorico da Bahia. Renowned for its African influenced cuisine, music and architecture, Salvador offers something for every interest and taste.

Rio de Janeiro is the most visited city in the southern hemisphere and the second largest city in Brazil. It’s packed with iconic sights like Copacabana and Ipanema Beach, towering Mount Sugarloaf and the outstretched arms of Christ the Redeemer. After hosting the Rio 2016 Olympic Games the city is easier to explore than ever before and full of carnival flavour. Dance to samba or bossa nova in the city’s exciting bars, sample some deliciously spicy cuisine or just relax on one of the beaches – you’re on Rio time now!
