Silver Shadow Gets Major Makeover

Silver Shadow has a fresh new look thanks to a major renovation completed during the two weeks that the ultra-luxury ship spent in dry dock in Singapore, before returning to service on March 19.

As with the refurbishment of sister ship Silver Whisper last year, the enhancements made aboard Silver Shadow echo the sophisticated contemporary design themes and warm color palettes of Silversea's newest ship, Silver Spirit.

Some of the highlights of Silver Shadow's makeover include:

New Look for Suites: All carpets, headboards, curtains and veranda furniture were completely replaced. The sofas and chairs feature new upholstery. 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. There is also a new memory pillow top that covers the mattress when configured as a queen-sized bed.

The larger suites (Owner's, Grand, Royal and Silver) have also been outfitted and a new state-of-the-art Bang & Olufsen home audio system.

Veranda Suite

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 the treatment rooms. The Restaurant's hardwood floor was completely 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: The jogging track features all-new synthetic turf, and the pool area has been outfitted with 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, sporting a new awning as well, 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 will enjoy an interactive dining experience that lets them cook prime meats and fresh seafood on heated volcanic rocks at their table.

Silver Shadow is currently sailing on a 9-day voyage from Singapore to Hong Kong and will continue exploring the Far East until she repositions to Alaska in late May for the summer.

Hong Kong Welcomes Silver Spirit

The lilting music and pageantry of the Hong Kong Police marching band greeted our beautiful Silver Spirit as the newest ultra-luxury vessel in our fleet made her first-ever visit to Hong Kong today.

Sailing from Manila, Philippines, Silver Spirit docked this morning at China Merchant Wharf in Kennedy Town. The occasion was celebrated by a colourful lion dance performance hosted by the Hong Kong Tourism Board and a traditional plaque exchange between Silver Spirit's Captain Marco Sangiacomo, the Hong Kong Tourism Commission, Hong Kong Marine Department, and Hong Kong Tourism Board. Also attending the festivities were Silversea COO Kenneth Watson and Steve Odell, Silversea senior vice president, Asia Pacific.

Hong Kong marks the halfway point of Silver Spirit's 119-day World Cruise and guests will spend two days exploring the sights and cultural attractions of this amazing city before departing for Haiphong (Hanoi), Vietnam and the second half of her global odyssey.

Silver Spirit Makes First-Ever Visit to Sydney

Fifty members of the Australian Girls Choir lined the foreshore of Sydney's Barangaroo Wharf 5 at 07.45 today to greet our magnificent Silver Spirit, visiting Australia's largest city for the very first time as part of her inaugural 119-day World Cruise.

The choir’s repertoire featured a selection of quintessentially Australian songs such as “I still call Australia Home” and “My Island Home”, to welcome Silver Spirit's guests.

The fire tug Shirley Smith provided a beautiful water display and escorted Silver Spirit to her berth at Barangaroo, as a line-up of Silversea’s signature butlers saluted the city from the bow of the ultra-luxury ship.

Silver Spirit will stay overnight in Sydney Harbour, allowing guests plenty of time to explore the city before departing for Brisbane and continuing on her global journey, which concludes in Southampton on 19 May.

We hope you enjoy having a look at these images of her arrival in Sydney this morning.
