"Our new photography programme is a perfect fit for the immersive expeditions we offer in Antarctica," said Conrad Combrink, SVP Strategic Development Expeditions and Experiences. "Voyaging to the bottom of the Earth is a once-in-a-lifetime experience, full of magical moments that we hope to help our guests capture in beautiful images they would be proud to display in their home or office."

The Silver Cloud photo studio

Silver Cloud accommodates just 200 guests in polar waters. A fleet of 16 Zodiacs provides unprecedented opportunity for up-close exploration, while 10 kayaks offer a truly personalised experience of nature in the polar realms. 20 or more passionate and dedicated Expedition Team members are always at hand to share their considerable knowledge and insights. They give lectures in the multi-tiered Explorer Lounge, run workshops, lead Zodiac and kayak trips, and guide nature walks - all of which is complimentary. Expedition voyages to Antarctica are offered from November to February.
