Dining on the Silver Cloud is heavenly. Luscious, multi-course, gourmet meals are served in a gorgeous, single seating dining room by friendly, attentive waiters. Meal hours are as flexible as the seating arrangement and you can go when you're hungry and linger as long as you'd like. Complimentary wines are poured liberally with meals (all drinks are free onboard). While always good, the food has gotten even better and more consistent over the years.
In 2005, Silversea added Le Champagne, a Relais & Chateaux restaurant. For a fee, diners can experience a six-course tasting menu of regionally inspired food and wine.
With so many verandah cabins, most passengers prefer breakfast in their suite, usually on their private deck. Those who don't head for the buffet in The Terrace Restaurant -- which has also improved greatly. Lunch is served in the dining room but again the popular choice is the beautifully presented buffet at the Terrace Restaurant. During a recent dry dock, La Terrazza underwent a slight remodel and more tables for two were added.
In 2012, the Pool Bar and Grill was expanded and transformed into The Grill, which offers passengers the chance to cook their own steak and seafood on heated volcanic rocks at their table.
During any given cruise there are also ethnic theme dinners served either in the Terrace or out by the pool.
Room service is not to be missed. Especially dinners which are served in courses (the waiter asks when you'd like them to come back) and are divine on starry, balmy nights in the privacy of your balcony.
