Silversea Cruises Unveils Fleet-Wide Refurbishment Plans

Silversea Cruises has unveiled details of what promises to be its biggest ever fleet-wide refurbishment plan.

Worth US$170 million, the investment is not aimed at simply maintaining Silversea’s self-imposed high levels of excellence, but to reaffirm the company’s commitment to exceptional standards of guest comfort and timeless elegance.

Silver Whisper will undergo a refurbishment that will take place by the end of 2016. The luxurious suites will be refurbished and the bathrooms adorned with dark emperor marble flooring while public spaces will be the key beneficiaries of the bursary, where a freshly tiled pool and new chaise lounges will breathe new levels of comfort and style into open air spaces.

Dining areas at The Restaurant and La Terrazza will be re-skinned with plush new carpet and elegant hard-wood parquet respectively, and will each receive new furniture.

Finally, Silver Whisper’s communications hub is set for a major overhaul with the addition of two satellite antennas, vastly improving internet speeds on board and enabling guests to take full advantage of the new, interactive TVs and on demand movies available in every suite.

The refurbishment programme extends to Silver Wind during her dry dock scheduled for October 2016. Once again, refurbishment of furniture and furnishings, technology upgrades that include interactive TVs and on demand movies complete the contemporary, yet understated levels of luxury in every suite. Additionally, the concept restaurant La Terrazza and the flagship Main Restaurant will both have new flooring bestowed upon them, enhancing the overall feel of gastronomic excellence delivered on board.

The pool deck will undergo a complete rip-and-replace approach to one of its aesthetic jewels, the teak flooring.

Beyond the Classic fleet, Silver Discoverer will also benefit from this investment in 2016, entering dry dock this October. It is in the public areas of this Expedition vessel where guests will see the most visible changes. The restaurant will be remodelled with a lighter, more contemporary colour palette and the ever popular pool grill area will flaunt new furniture. The Discoverer lounge will go through a transformation from breakfast venue to a sophisticated lounge in which to relax, read and reflect on the day’s excursions.

Silversea continues to augment the expedition experience to the benefit of its guests, and this is illustrated with further investment in new AV technology in the Explorer Lounge and new furniture from which to enjoy the lectures and briefings. 

“We are thrilled to be moving ahead with these major refurbishments and look forward to welcoming guests aboard and sharing our unique vision of ultra-luxury cruising, both in terms of service and physical environment,” said Manfredi Lefebvre, Chairman of Silversea. “We pride ourselves on being the reference when it comes to ultra-luxury cruising and this investment reflects our long-term commitment in this regard toward our ships, our guests and our crew.”
