I agree so anxious to be on the Silver Cloud for Antarctica and see just how that boot room works. It seems SO large after the Explorer and just 75 more people. It is probably 3 to 4 times bigger than the Explorer boot room. Also what is nice is the larger waiting area to board the zodiacs. Definitely benefits (including bathtubs) to the Cloud. However, I am still looking forward to being on the Silver Explorer, Dunedin to Dunedin. An area I have always wanted to explore. Had so many good trips on the Explorer it does have a place in my heart.
