Unhappy Refinishing Cedar Hot tub please

I have decided to refinish my hot tub enclosure which happens to be made up of 17 year old cedar that has not been stained since the day it was put in, which just happens to be 17 years ago. The old stain can be removed with a good sanding, but the cedar has discolored and looks very grey .

Is there anyway to get rid of this grey?

If i use a semi-transparent stain, will it give the grey cedar a nicer wood color while bringing out the grain in the wood?

If not, would it be best if I were to restain the cedar with an opaque stain?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
