The luxurious Silver Spirit has been split in two as she begins her lengthening process.
Silver Spirit is currently docked in Palermo at the Fincantieri shipyard whilst the extension takes place. The ship has literally been cut in two and a new prebuilt segment measuring 49-feet will be added in the middle.
The chief marketing officer of Silversea Cruises, Barbara Muckermann, commented: “This ambitious project will amplify the onboard features that matter most to our guests. We are taking our flagship, Silver Muse – which was delivered by Fincantieri in April last year – as the point of inspiration for a fleet-wide renovation program.; the lengthening and refurbishment of Silver Spirit will replicate the modern elegance of our latest vessel to make for a more luxurious travelling experience. We are eager to share the new and improved layout of our cherished ship with our valued guests.”
The lengthening project will take a long time to complete, roughly 450,000 man hours to be exact. The completion date for the project is 5th May 2018.
As an end result, Silver Spirit will be a total length of 691.3 ft with the capacity increase of nearly 12 percent. This means there will be more space in the dining venues and in the outdoor seating areas on top deck. The pool area on top deck will see a big change as it will increase in length by 50 ft, along with a new area for aerobics to take place.
There will also be notable enhancements made to other existing venues such as the fitness centre and the spa, which will be transformed into a Zagara Spa.
The layout for the restaurants will also change. There will be a total of eight different restaurants, all of which will offer guests a diverse menu with dishes that will suit all tastes. The eight restaurants that will exist onboard after the lengthening include the existing Seishin, The Grill, La Dame and La Terrazza, accompanied by new venues such as Indochine, Atlantide, Spaccanapoli and Silver Note.
Additionally, Silver Spirit will benefit from improved entertainment. There will be two new venues that will provide daily entertainment, these areas will be Dolce Vita and the Arts Café.
Silversea are making a huge effort to enhance the luxury element of their ships to reflect the standards that currently exist on their latest ship, Silver Muse.
