Silver Spirit stretches every last drop out of luxury cruising

Silver Spirit is entering the Fincantieri shipyard in Palermo today where she will literally be stretched to new lengths of luxury before re-emerging on 1 May.

Large-scale refurbishment works will include the insertion of a prebuilt 49-ft-long segment into the ship’s midsection which will dramatically enhance each of the ship’s public spaces with a new interior design inspired by the cruise line’s flagship vessel, Silver Muse.

“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,” says Christian Sauleau, Executive Vice President of fleet operations for Silversea.

The lengthening project will create 34 new luxury suites, as well as a Balsorano suite – the pinnacle of onboard accommodation, which will be adorned with decorative items that are of personal value to Silversea’s chairman, Manfredi Lefebvre d’Ovidio di Balsorano de Clunieres.

The best existing suites on Silver Spirit will grow in their appeal, with the addition of handmade Savoir® mattresses, horse hair toppers, and new HD screens for guests’ comfort.

Silversea believe Silver Spirit’s atmospheric sense of intimacy will not be compromised by the planned enhancements. While some areas will grow in size, special measures have been made to retain the ship’s bijou feel.

Dining options will increase in variation and advance in quality; additional suites will enrich the onboard accommodation; stylish décor enhancements will be made to existing suites and the ship’s public areas; the pool deck area will be enlarged; the addition of a new health and fitness centre will improve wellness facilities; and various other amenities, such as the casino, will be transformed.

The Arts Café will offer a relaxed setting for readers and tea/coffee lovers, and display exhibitions and performances.

Inspired by Silversea’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.  centre that will boast state-of-the-art facilities.

On 6 May, Silver Spirit will return to service with a seven-day cruise between Civitavecchia (Rome) and Barcelona, calling at Porto-Vecchio, Corsica; Livorno; Portofino; Cannes; and Marseilles. Fares start from £3,600 per person.
