Silversea Cruises flagship, the Silver Spirit, is set to visit Singapore for the first time in April 2011, as part of her inaugural 119-day World Cruise, that began in Los Angeles, USA.

Sailing from Phuket, Thailand, the 540-guest, all-suite Silver Spirit will arrive in Singapore on 3 April 2011, docking at 08.00. A plaque exchange will take place at 11:00 aboard the ship with Silversea Captain Sangiacomo and Singapore Tourism Board.

Guests will spend one day exploring the sights and cultural attractions of Singapore, before departing at 18.00 for Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, as part of a longer voyage returning the ship to Southampton, UK.

Steve Odell, Silverseas Senior Vice President Asia Pacific, said, We are delighted to be introducing our beautiful new flagship to Singapore. The Art Deco-inspired Silver Spirit sets new standards in luxury cruising and guests onboard will enjoy an unmatched level of pampering and personalised service. Singapore is one of the port highlights of this sector of the World Cruise and we know that our guests will relish the chance to explore this beautiful city.

Built in the Fincantieri Shipyard in Ancona, Italy, Silver Spirit was designed by architect Giacomo Mortola of Genoa, Italy. At 36,000 tons, the vessel has a length of 198.5 metres, a width of 26.2 metres and a draft of 6.2 metres. 376 European officers and European-trained international staff are onboard, providing a guest-to-crew ratio of 1.4 to 1, and guests enjoy one of the highest space-to-guest ratios in the industry today, with 6700 cubic feet of space per guest.

Over its eight decks, Silver Spirit offers the luxuries of other Silversea ships, plus new enhancements including the Stars Supper Club dishing up tapas-style cuisine and live jazz; Asian-fusion restaurant Seishin; a 8,300-square-foot spa offering pampering and the latest Medi-Spa treatments; a resort-style pool with four whirlpools, and the largest suites in the Silversea fleet, 95% with private teak verandas.

Guests can enjoy the personalised service of a butler assigned to every suite; complimentary beverages, wines and spirits served throughout the ship; 24 hour room service; stocked in-suite beverage cabinet, and all gratuities.

There are also numerous onboard activities to enjoy including an enrichment programme with fascinating speakers, from marine biologists and archaeologists to art historians and eminent broadcast journalists.
