Ultra-luxury travel innovator Silversea has unveiled plans for its first-ever ship lengthening.
The turn-key transformation of Silver Spirit will take place early next year at the Palermo shipyard of Fincantieri.
Starting in early March, Silver Spirit will be lengthened by inserting a prebuilt 49-foot-long midsection housing six silver, 26 veranda, and two panorama suites.
Technical upgrades will also be implemented.
As the ship’s extensive redesign takes its inspiration from the innovations of the line’s new flagship, Silver Muse, creative dining concepts will be incorporated, and stylish décor enhancements will be made to existing suites and throughout the public spaces and outdoor areas, providing an increased level of comfort and spaciousness.
“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,” said Christian Sauleau, executive vice president of fleet operations for Silversea Cruises.
Silver Spirit offers a lively, convivial atmosphere for cosmopolitan travellers who enjoy a greater variety of shipboard diversions, yet crave the personalised service and authentic experiences for which Silversea is known.
