Silver Cloud News

2012 Makeover

Posted Oct 1, 2012

The Silver Cloud will undergo a makeover during a three-week dry dock at Fincantieri's shipyard in Palermo, Italy. Silversea is completely renovating passenger suites, public spaces and dining venues for a "fresh and contemporary classic atmosphere".  The work will be completed next month.

Highlights of Silver Cloud's makeover will include:

Refreshed Public Spaces - Lobby area, corridors, staircases, The Bar, Panorama Lounge, Spa, and Beauty Salon will all receive upgrades

Dining Enhancements

Le Champagne restaurant will be completely transformed with an upgraded entrance design, backlit wine displays, a redesigned seating layout, and new wood flooring, fabrics and window treatments.

La Terrazza's updated interior will include a remodeled buffet area and 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 existing Pool Bar and Grill will be expanded with additional seating, a large overhead awning, and the removal of the central stair unit, which will be replaced with a curving corner staircase. At this new outdoor restaurant, guests will enjoy an innovative dining experience that lets them cook prime meats and fresh seafood on heated volcanic rocks at their table. 

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.
