Silversea introduces Photo Academy on sailings to Antarctica

Introducing Silversea’s Photo Academy

Cruise passengers sailing on Silver Cloud in Antarctica can take advantage of Silversea’s new My Photo Academy.

A cruise to Antarctica is about as bucket-list as it gets. This remote destination is one of the most exclusive itineraries in the cruise business. And for most guests who make the journey to the most southernly continent on our planet, taking photos is an integral part of the trip.

Silversea’s Photo Studio is designed and implemented in collaboration with Galardi Media Network. Photo via Silversea Cruises.

Silver Cloud’s new Photo Studio is a hub for the multifaceted enrichment program that invites guests o elevate their photographic prowess by learning how to take and edit pictures like a professional on itineraries designed to maximize expedition time and the opportunities for shooting great images.

“Our new photography program 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.”
