Search ASIA Travel Tips .com Latest Travel News Send to Friend Wednesday, 11 February 2009

Silversea Cruises has put the finishing touches on a multimillion-dollar renovation involving virtually every aspect of the luxury ship - Silver Wind.

A centerpiece of the project was the addition of an Observation Lounge (seating 60 guests), Spa, Beauty Salon and Fitness Center on the forward section of Deck 9, altering the ship's exterior appearance with floor-to-ceiling windows that wrap around the new space. A new two-floor, glass-enclosed elevator was also installed connecting Decks 8 and 9.

"We're delighted with the results of this major renovation," said Steve Odell, Senior Vice President for Asia Pacific. "Silver Wind has a refreshed look and feel, yet the ship retains her elegance and charm throughout. The company has made an important investment to bring this vessel in line with the style and design themes that are planned for our new ship, Silver Spirit, currently under construction. With these enhancements, our guests are sure to enjoy a renewed sense of luxury and comfort aboard Silver Wind."

Accommodating 298 guests, Silver Wind's 149 ocean-view suites range in size from 240 to 1,314 square feet (22 - 122 square meters), with 80% now featuring a private veranda. Suite modifications include the following:

- Four Silver Suites added to Deck 8.
- One Owner's Suite with a connecting second-bedroom suite added to Deck 7.
- One Medallion and One Vista Suite added to Deck 7.
- Fixed queen beds in larger suites have been replaced with convertible twin-to-queen beds.
- Custom-built TV cabinets added to all Vista and Veranda Suites.
- New flat screen TVs.
- New sofa, armchair, desk, vanity, night tables and headboard.
- New carpets, drapes and bed coverings.
- Updated bathroom fixtures and bathtubs, including new marble countertops, walls and flooring.

The Spa

The new Spa, which encompasses the Beauty Salon and Fitness Center, occupies over 650 additional square feet (60 square meters) following the renovation. The expanded Spa features an inviting reception area, four massage rooms, one body treatment room, one dry sauna and one steam sauna. The new Fitness Center includes a body-building room and separate aerobics room, both offering spectacular panoramic ocean views.

Other ship enhancements include new upholstery, curtains, wall treatments, carpets and/or flooring in the restaurants, public lounges, lobbies, stairs and corridors.
