Golden Views Of SILVER CLOUD

Silversea Cruises captured some stunning views of their ultra-luxe, 296 passenger cruise ship SILVER CLOUD when she visited the Port of London last week. The 16,800 ton vessel sailed under the Tower Bridge and its display of Olympic Rings (which were temporarily hoisted to provide clearance) before berthing alongside the HMS BELFAST. One of the highest-rated ships in the world and one of the largest to dock in central London, the 1994-built SILVER CLOUD was concluding a sixteen night voyage from Copenhagen before sailing off on a nine night cruise to Iceland.
