Silver Cloud emerges from refurb with updates, new color palette

Owner's Suite wet room bath
Silversea Cruises’ Silver Cloud is sailing on its first voyage following a three-week drydock at Fincantieri’s Palermo shipyard where extensive renovations were made to nearly every area of the 1994-built ship.

Silver Cloud's decor was fully renovated, including all the suites, public spaces and dining venues, to introduce what the line described as a ‘fresh and contemporary classic atmosphere.’
The totally renewed lobby now displays a color palette of warm earth tones that is carried throughout most areas of the ship with the installation of new carpets, wall treatments and artwork in the corridors, staircases and public spaces.

Providing contrast to the main color scheme of the ship is The Bar, now decorated in cooler shades of teal mixed with neutral tones of brown and beige. All new furniture, carpet, curtains and reconditioned wood flooring give the Panorama Lounge a refreshed contemporary look, while The Spa and Beauty Salon also received make-overs.
Le Champagne, the only Relais & Châteaux restaurant at sea, has been completely transformed with an upgraded entrance design, the addition of gleaming, backlit wine displays, a redesigned seating layout, and new wood flooring, fabrics and window treatments.
La Terrazza’s updated interior includes a remodeled buffet area and new banquettes along the walls, providing greater seating flexibility, including more tables for two. The Restaurant has been refreshed with chairs dressed in bright new fabrics, new window treatments and reconditioned hardwood flooring.
The Grill, with its interactive dining concept, is now featured aboard Silver Cloud as the existing Pool Bar and Grill area was expanded with additional seating, a large overhead awning, and the removal of the central stair unit, which was replaced with a curving corner staircase. At this new outdoor restaurant, diners cook meats and seafood on heated volcanic rocks at their table.
In the suites, sofas and chairs were updated with new fabrics. All carpets, headboards, curtains and outside veranda furniture were replaced. Each suite has a new mattress custom-made exclusively for Silversea that features an individual spring system with a soft and firm side that can be reversed to suit individual preferences. The new beds are outfitted with plush Pratesi sheets, pillowcases and duvet covers.

All bathrooms have been enhanced with new flooring, marble appointments and a new bath and shower combination or a new walk-in, glass-enclosed rain forest shower with sitting area. (This replaced the existing bath and shower combination in nearly 90% of the Veranda and Vista Suites). The Owner’s, Grand and Royal Suites are outfitted with a modern wet room bath configuration featuring a new rain forest shower that is separate from the bathtub.
Outdoors, the jogging track gained new synthetic turf and the pool area was outfitted with new deck furniture. Teak decks and woodwork were reconditioned and polished, and the ship’s mechanical and propulsion systems underwent maintenance.
