Following a major stem-to-stern refurbishment during October at Fincantieri’s shipyard in Palermo, Italy, Silver Cloud will welcome guests to a stylishly renovated shipboard environment with a host of new enhancements.

A complete renovation of interior decoration, including the suites, public spaces and dining venues, will introduce a fresh and contemporary classic atmosphere.

Highlights of Silver Cloud’s makeover will include:

• Refreshed Public Spaces:

A renewed lobby displaying a colour palette of warm earth tones. Stylish new carpets, wall treatments and artwork in the corridors, staircases and public spaces. The Bar will provide a contrast with cooler shades of teal mixed with neutral tones of brown and beige. New furniture, carpet, curtains and reconditioned wood flooring will give the Panorama Lounge a refreshed contemporary look, whilst The Spa and Beauty Salon will also get a makeover.

• Dining Enhancements:

Le Champagne, the only Relais & Châteaux restaurant at sea, will be completely transformed, with an upgraded entrance design and the addition of gleaming backlit wine displays, a redesigned seating layout as well as new wood flooring, fabrics and window treatments.

La Terrazza’s updated interior will include a remodelled buffet area and handsome new banquettes along the walls, offering greater seating flexibility, including more tables for two.

The Restaurant will be refreshed with chairs dressed in bright new fabrics, new window treatments and reconditioned hardwood flooring.

The Grill, with its unique interactive dining concept, will now be featured aboard Silver Cloud as the existing Pool Bar and Grill area is expanded with additional seating. The area will also feature a large overhead awning and the central stair unit will be replaced with a curving corner staircase. At this new outdoor restaurant, guests will enjoy an innovative dining experience enabling them to cook prime meats and fresh seafood on heated volcanic rocks at their table.

• Sophisticated New Decor for Suites:

The sofas and chairs will be updated with new fabrics. All carpets, headboards, curtains and outside veranda furniture will also be replaced. Each suite will have a new mattress custom-made exclusively for Silversea and will feature an individual spring system with a soft and firm side that can be reversed to suit each guest’s preference.

The new beds will be outfitted with plush new Pratesi sheets, pillowcases and duvet covers. All bathrooms will be enhanced with new flooring, marble appointments and either a new bath-and-shower combination or a new walk-in, glass-enclosed rainforest shower with sitting area, offering a soothing, spa-like experience. For our guests who enjoy a relaxing soak, 16 suites will not be converted and are referenced below.

Suites with bathtub/shower combination:

MIDSHIP VERANDA SUITES: 526, 528, 529, 530, 531, 533

VERANDA SUITES: 511, 512, 514, 515, 516, 517

VISTA SUITES: 411, 412, 414, 415

The Owner’s and Grand Suites will be outfitted with a modern wet room bath configuration featuring a new rainforest shower that will be separate from the bathtub.

• Upgraded Outdoor Spaces:

The jogging track will feature all-new synthetic turf and the pool area will be outfitted with new deck furniture.

Silversea is making a significant financial investment in this refurbishment to ensure that guests experience a renewed sense of luxury and comfort when sailing aboard Silver Cloud.

In addition to enjoying a fresh reconditioning and polishing of teak decks and woodwork, the ship will undergo thorough maintenance on mechanical and propulsion systems.
