Silver Cloud is a small cruise ship operated by Silversea Cruises, a privately owned luxury cruise line. She entered service in 1994 as Silversea's first ship, and set the scene for the line's next three vessels, beginning with her sister ship, Silver Wind, launched in 1995.[
In summer, Silver Cloud generally sails on European itineraries (both the North Sea and the Mediterranean). In winter, she cruises in the Caribbean and South America.
