Silver Explorer, Silver Cloud, Club Med 2 in Toulon
Expedition ship Silver Explorer arrived in Toulon Bay for lay-up after crossing the Atlantic, becoming the third cruise ship at the La Seyne-sur-Mer cruise terminal. Also there waiting out the COVID-19 pandemic are Silver Cloud and Club Med 2.
Silver Explorer is berthed at the northern part of the pier, astern of Silver Cloud, which has been in Toulon Bay since May 31. As for Club Med 2, which arrived from the West Indies May 8, the ship returned to La Seyne yesterday after a 48-hour round-trip to Barcelona.
Club Med has no plans to sail this summer
Club Med is going to focus on its villages and doesn't plan to resume service this summer. The company told Seatrade Cruise News it may try to restart sailings in the autumn, but nothing is decided.
Six Silversea ships are sheltering in French ports. In addition to the two in Toulon, Silver Shadow, Silver Whisper and Silver Wind have been waiting for a month in Marseille, while Silver Spirt was expected to arrive there today.
