Silversea’s Silver Whisper To Undergo Refurb This Year
Bruce Parkinson, Open Jaw
Ahead of her World Cruise in 2019, Silversea’s Silver Whisper will undergo extensive renovations later this year.
Between 8DEC and 19DEC the ship will be in dry dock in Freeport, as enhancements are made to its public areas and guest suites.
Implemented with a similar design and features as can be found on the recently delivered Silver Muse, the line’s flagship, and on the Silver Spirit, which is currently undergoing a significant renovation, the main restaurant on the Silver Whisper will undergo a full upgrade, the casino and card/conference room will be refreshed, and the gym will install new state-of-the-art machinery, among other enhancements to the ship’s public spaces.
As for guest accommodation, nine Terrace suites on deck five will become Veranda suites; 40” flat screen televisions, including interactive media systems, will be added; and all bathrooms will be revitalized with polished granite surfaces.
Outside, storage space for Zodiac boats and a crane will be installed in preparation for the addition of smaller motorboats that will allow World Cruise 2020 guests to access even more remote locations. That cruise just went on sale and will see Silver Whisper travel to all seven continents, including Antarctica.
