Silversea has announced the completion of the lengthening and refurbishment project of Silver Spirit, which is now 49 feet/15 metres longer than before.
Having been cut in half and lengthened with the insertion of a pre-built section, the ship was also renovated extensively during its 59-day dry dock, and departed on her inaugural voyage from Civitavecchia on 6MAY.
Among other improvements made to the ship, its pool deck has been enlarged, a new eight-restaurant arrangement has increased dining options with the introduction of Spaccanapoli, Silver Note, Atlantide, and Indochine, as well as the renovation of La Terrazza; and a number of new amenities have upgraded the onboard offering, including the Arts Café, Tor’s Observation Library, the Zagara Spa, the Panorama Lounge, and the Dolce Vita lounge.
In September, Silver Spirit will cross to North America, where she will remain until November. From then, she will sail a program in the Caribbean.
“I appreciate the complexity of this feat of engineering,” said Manfredi Lefebvre d’Ovidio, Silversea’s Chairman. “As such, I am extremely proud of the amazing job my team and Fincantieri have done. Our beloved Silver Spirit resumes service in a condition that is even more beautiful than before.”
