Silversea Cruises’ Silver Spirit will undergo an extensive lengthening project at the Fincantieri shipyard in Palermo, Italy.

The ship will enter dry dock on 5 March 2018, where she will remain until 1 May. She will undergo large-scale refurbishment works which will include the insertion of a pre-built 15-metre-long segment into the ship’s midsection, making her the first luxury ship to be lengthened in this manner.

The transformation will offer a new variety of dining options, additional suites and décor enhancements. The ship’s public areas, including the pool deck, will be enlarged and reimagined and a new health and fitness centre will improve wellness facilities.

A new addition to Silver Spirit, the Arts Café, will offer a relaxed setting for guests which will display exhibitions and performances. Inspired by Silversea’s Italian heritage, Dolce Vita will offer a venue for guests to enjoy cocktails and live piano.

“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,” said Christian Sauleau, executive vice president of fleet operations for Silversea. “They will see many of Silver Muse’s innovations and elevated comforts embodied by our reimagined Silver Spirit.”

The lengthening project will create 34 new luxury suites, as well as a Balsorano suite. The existing suites on Silver Spirit’s will feature the addition of handmade Savoir mattresses, horse hair toppers, and new HD screens.
