Silver Shadow Gets A Spirit-Inspired Makeover

Silversea Cruises' Silver Shadow returned to service on March 19th with a fresh new look after emerging from a two-week drydock in Singapore. As with the refurbishment of sister ship Silver Whisper last year, the enhancements Silver Shadow received echo the sophisticated contemporary design themes and warm color palettes of Silversea's newest ship, Silver Spirit.

Some of of Silver Shadow's makeover highlights include:

New Look for Suites: Carpets, headboards, curtains and veranda furniture were replaced and sofas and chairs feature new upholstery. Each suite has a new mattress custom-made exclusively for Silversea featuring an individual spring system with a soft and firm side that can be reversed to suit each guest's preference. A new memory pillow top covers the mattress when configured as a queen-sized bed. Larger suites (Owner's, Grand, Royal and Silver) have also been outfitted and a new state-of-the-art Bang & Olufsen home audio system.

Refreshed Public Areas: La Terrazza, the Bar, Panorama Lounge, Reception area, Card Room, and Conference Room received new upholstery, carpeting, curtains and wall treatments. New carpet was laid in the Observation Lounge. The Spa features new wood flooring with new tiling and wall décor in treatment rooms. The Restaurant's hardwood floor was reconditioned and polished and the chairs dressed in new upholstery. An upgraded sound system was added to the Show Lounge, Panorama Lounge, and La Terrazza. New carpet was installed in all corridors, landings and staircases.

Upgraded Outdoor Spaces: All-new synthetic turf covers the jogging track and the pool area features new deck furniture, plus a new sound and light system for evening entertainment and outdoor shows. The pool itself has been upgraded inside and out with new tiles. A large awning was installed over the outdoor dining section of La Terrazza, along with new outdoor furniture. And the Pool Grill, also with a new awning, will become The Grill for evening dining featuring the popular new Black Rock cooking concept that debuted aboard Silver Spirit. At the new outdoor restaurant, guests enjoy an interactive 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 underwent thorough maintenance on mechanical and propulsion systems. For more information on Silversea Cruises, visit
