Palermo, Italy, where extensive renovations were made
to nearly every area of the ultra-luxury ship.
Cloud's interior decoration
has been completely renovated, including all the suites, public spaces and
dining venues, in order to introduce a fresh and contemporary classic
atmosphere. Silversea made a significant financial investment in this refurbishment
to ensure its guests experience a renewed sense of luxury and comfort when

previously announced, the enhancements include:
Refreshed Public Spaces: A
totally renewed lobby now displays a colour palette of warm earth tones that is
carried throughout most areas of the ship with the installation of stylish new
carpets, wall treatments and artwork in the corridors, staircases and public
spaces. Providing contrast to the main colour 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 makeovers.
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.
Terrazza's updated interior includes a remodelled buffet area and handsome new
banquettes along the walls, offering greater seating flexibility, including
more tables for two.
Restaurant has been refreshed with chairs dressed in bright new fabrics, new
window treatments and reconditioned hardwood flooring.
Grill, with its unique interactive dining concept, is now featured aboard Silver Cloud as the existing Pool Bar

carpets, headboards, curtains and outside veranda furniture have been replaced.
Each suite has a new mattress custom-made exclusively for Silversea. The
mattress features an individual spring system with a soft and firm side that
can be reversed to suit each guest's preference. The new beds are outfitted
with plush new Pratesi sheets, pillowcases and duvet covers. All bathrooms have
been 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. (This replaced the existing
bath-and-shower combination in nearly 90% of the Veranda and Vista Suites). The

configuration featuring a new rainforest shower that is separate from the bath.
