How it Ranks: Silver Cloud ranks #4 out of 5 Silversea Cruises Cruise Ships based on an analysis of expert and user ratings, as well as health ratings.

Launched in 1994, Silver Cloud is Silversea's oldest ship and was most recently refurbished in late 2012. The 296-passenger ship features 146 suites, all with ocean views. Accommodations on board range in size from 240 to 1,314 square feet, and 75 percent of the ship's luxury staterooms feature a private veranda. Cabins offer amenities like walk-in closets, minifridges, flat-screen TVs and Italian marble bathrooms. Previous travelers applaud the personalized butler service and shore excursions, but say that for the price, the ship still shows signs of its age. The dining on the ship also received mixed reviews, with the exception of Le Champagne — a Relais & Châteaux-affiliated restaurant (reservations require an additional $40). Passengers can participate in the ship's daytime activity lineup, which includes enrichment lectures, fitness classes and cooking demos, or relax by the pool. Come nighttime, passengers can check out the casino, take in a show or relax in the cigar lounge, Connoisseur's Corner.

Disclaimers about ship ratings: A ship's Health Rating is based on vessel inspection scores published by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). If a ship did not receive a CDC score within 22 months prior to the calculation of its Overall Rating, its Health Rating appears as N/A; in such a case, the ship's Overall Rating is calculated using the average Health Rating of all CDC-rated ships within the cruise line.
