The turn-key transformation of Silver Spirit will amplify everything that matters most to Silverseaâ€™s guests.
MONACO February 24, 2018
Silver Spirit will enter dry dock at the industry-leading Fincantieri shipyard in Palermo on March 5, where she will remain until May 1. She will undergo large-scale refurbishment works, which will include the insertion of a prebuilt 15-metre-long (49-feet-long) segment into the shipâ€™s midsection, making her the first luxury ship to be lengthened in this manner. With the aim of augmenting the onboard experience for Silversea guests, the project will dramatically enhance each of the shipâ€™s public spaces with beautiful interior design, taking inspiration from the cruise lineâ€™s flagship vessel, Silver Muse, which was delivered by Fincantieri in April last year.
“Based on the wonderful feedback from guests sailing aboard our beautiful Silver Muse, we believe the comprehensive makeover we have planned for Silver Spirit will enrich the onboard experience and be equally appreciated by guests. They will see many of Silver Muse's innovations and elevated comforts embodied by our reimagined Silver Spirit,” says Christian Sauleau, executive vice president of fleet operations for Silversea.
Enjoyed by the shipâ€™s guests and characterising Silverseaâ€™s superior cruising experiences, Silver Spiritâ€™s atmospheric sense of intimacy will not be compromised by the planned enhancements. While some areas will grow in size, evoking the feel of spaciousness and enhancing comfort, special measures have been made to retain the shipâ€™s bijou feel. Silverseaâ€™s trademark level of service will also continue: the improved Silver Spirit will enjoy an impressive crew-to-guest ratio of 1:1.48.
Following a lengthy phase of research, the turn-key transformation of Silver Spirit will amplify everything that matters most to Silverseaâ€™s guests: dining options will increase in variation and advance in quality; additional suites will enrich the onboard accommodation; stylish dÃ©cor enhancements will be made to existing suites and the shipâ€™s public areas; the pool deck area will be enlarged and reimagined; the addition of a new health and fitness centre will improve wellness facilities; and various other amenities, such as the casino, will undergo tasteful transformations.
Following the enormous success of the distinct gastronomic concepts offered aboard Silver Muse, the dining options on Silver Spirit will be fundamentally reimagined to increase choice and improve guestsâ€™ experiences: delivering gastronomic authenticity from across the world, Atlantide, Indochine, Spaccanapoli, and Silver Note will be installed to complement the existing Seishin, La Dame, The Grill, and La Terrazza â€“ each of which will undergo refurbishment. Inspired by guest feedback, menus will be altered and refined across the shipâ€™s prevailing restaurants.
Elsewhere, new public spaces will elevate the overall comfort of the ship. A new addition to Silver Spirit, the Arts CafÃ© – an innovative, modern, multi-faceted area – will stimulate guestsâ€™ senses on the eighth deck. Offering a relaxed setting for readers and tea/coffee lovers, the Arts CafÃ© will display exhibitions and performances. Inspired by Silverseaâ€™s Italian heritage, Dolce Vita will occupy pride of place on Silver Spirit. It will be an elegant venue in which sophisticated travellers will gather, interact, and make lifelong friends. Cool cocktails will provide the perfect accompaniments to the smooth sound of live piano. Guests also stand to benefit from the installation of the Zagara spa – a blissful sanctuary that proved to be extremely popular on Silver Muse – and a fitness centre that will boast state-of-the-art facilities.
The lengthening project will create 34 new luxury suites, as well as a Balsorano suite â€“ the pinnacle of onboard accommodation, which will be adorned with decorative items that are of personal value to Silverseaâ€™s chairman, Manfredi Lefebvre d'Ovidio di Balsorano de Clunieres. The best existing suites on Silver Spiritâ€™s will grow in their appeal, with the addition of handmade SavoirÂ® mattresses, horse hair toppers, and new HD screens for guestsâ€™ comfort.
On May 6, Silver Spirit will commence her service with a seven-day cruise between Civitavecchia (Rome) and Barcelona, calling at Porto-Vecchio, Corsica; Livorno; Portofino; Cannes; and Marseilles. Fares start from â‚¬3,800 per person with special savings for those bookings made before March 31.
