Silver Cloud set for extensive update at Fincantieri’s Palermo

Silver Cloud set for extensive update at Fincantieri’s Palermo
The 1994-built Silver Cloud will get an extensive update this month at Fincantieri’s Palermo yard that will refresh public spaces and suites and revamp the outdoor dining area, The Grill, to add hot rocks cooking, among other features. 

Design and construction elements for the three-week drydock are under the supervision of architect Giacomo Mortola.
Highlights of the plans for the public spaces include a renewed lobby displaying with a color palette of warm earth tones that will be 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 will be The Bar, which will be decorated in 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, while The Spa and Beauty Salon will also get a makeover.
The Relais & Châteaux restaurant Le Champagne will be completely transformed with an upgraded entrance design, the addition of 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, affording 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, 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, diners can cook their own prime meats and fresh seafood on heated volcanic rocks at their table.
In the suites, sofas and chairs will be updated with new fabrics. All carpets, headboards, curtains and outside veranda furniture will be replaced. Each suite will have a new mattress custom-made exclusively for Silversea Cruises featuring an individual spring system with a soft and firm side that can be reversed to suit each passenger’s preference. The new beds will be outfitted with 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. (This will replace the existing bath-and-shower combination in nearly 90% of the Veranda and Vista suites). 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.
The jogging track will gain all-new synthetic turf and the pool area will be outfitted with new deck furniture. The teak decks and woodwork will be reconditioned and polished, and Silversea said the ship will undergo maintenance on mechanical and propulsion systems.
