Review of Silver Dawn deck 10 (Bridge-Cabins-Pools)
The fore-located Navigation Bridge/Wheelhouse and the adjacent Captain's Suite and officers' quarters are inaccessible to passengers.
The pool area includes a rectangular swimming pool (saltwater, heated during cool-weather sailings), 2 whirlpools, large sunbathing area with teak chaise loungers, tennis tables. There is a separate whirlpool area at the stern (aft location). The pool deck is served daily with food and beverages by the poolside bars Pool Bar and Pool Grill. In the evenings, the outdoor seating area becomes an intimate al fresco dining venue with classic steakhouse and seafood choices, plus healthy and vegetarian selections.
"Hot Rocks" is an outdoor restaurant (Steakhouse and Seafood) and an alternative casual dinner option for gourmet dining under the stars. Signature meals here are the lava-rocks grilled meat (premium beef, veal, pork, lamb), seafood (salmon, prawns, fresh fish of the day), Mediterranean vegetables, salad of the day, baked potatoes. The pool deck’s sunbathing area in the evenings becomes an outdoor seating (alfresco dining) terrace. Wines are complimentary, but premium wines from the Connoisseur’s Wine List are extra charge. The Hot Rocks Grill implements the Silverseas line’s new interactive dining concept (named “Black Rock Grill Experience”). It allows guests the unique chance to cook their own meat and seafood to their own specifications (on the grill stone or in a soup bowl). This Lido deck section is equipped with gas heaters and a covering that protects guests from inclement weather. Between 7:30 am and 4 pm, Hot Rocks operates as a rotisserie and fast food bar (made-to-order burgers). Dinner (7-10 pm) is waiter-served and reservations-only event, and stone cooking is available only in the evenings. Wellness Breakfast menu includes smoothies, fresh fruit/veggie drinks, low-calorie food. Among the grill’s daily items are pasta dishes, salads, sandwiches, burgers, wraps, hot dogs, grilled meat/seafood.
