Review of Silver Cloud deck 5 (Lobby-Cabins-Shops)

Both Boutique shops (starboard and portside) offer duty-free shopping, but are closed while the ship is docked in ports. The boutiques sell luxury jewelry and watches, brand perfumes, designer handbags, fashion, photo/video accessories, Silversea Cruises logo merchandise, some special occasion gifts and convenience goods.

Photo Studio (starboard) is Silver Cloud ship exclusive venue designed via partnership with Galardi Media Network (Switzerland). The Studio is a workshop room fitted with latest technology equipment - PC and MAC computers, high-resolution printers (fee of charge / for creating postcards or frame-ready prints) , touch-screen interface. The workshop is led by a professional and provides practice with professional photo equipment - 6x HP Envy 27 computers; 6x iMac 27 computers, 4x Loupedeck consoles (Adobe Lightroom), 2x DNP photo printers, 2x Epson plotters, 3x Samsung 55 screens (4K), 1x Samsung 65 screen (4K). Additionally are offered 20-min private lessons.

Note: In 2018, Silversea introduced the "My Photo Academy" classes on Silver Cloud's Antarctica cruises. The new classes are part of the company's onboard enrichment program The Academy, and are held at the "Photo Studio". Here passengers have the opportunity to improve their photo skills by learning how to take and edit photos like professionals. Among the covered topics are social media (uploading / sharing / Facebook-Instagram posting), introduction to photography, software lessons (Adobe Lightroom and Adobe Photoshop).

Lobby (Reception Desk)

Dolce Vita is an aft-located bar lounge with comfortable seating and its own Bar. The lounge doubles as a disco nightclub and offers live music performances (by the ship’s resident pianist and Quartet), a dance floor for the evening parties (DJ programming, live band music), complimentary cocktails throughout the Silversea cruise.

Cruise cabins from 506 to 545, all of which are balcony suites in categories Veranda Suite (VR-Forward) and Deluxe Veranda Suite (DV-Midship), plus one MS-Medallion Suite (#527 starboard).

Before the ship's transfer to Silversea Expeditions, the starboard Boutique was a Casino (gambling area) fitted with slot machines and gaming tables (roulette, blackjack, poker). It opened when the ship was at sea, and was served by The Bar (now Dolce Vita).
