Silversea has revealed the biggest fleet-wide refurbishment plan in its history, worth $170 million.
This investment is not aimed at simply maintaining Silversea’s self-imposed high levels of excellence, but to reaffirm the company’s commitment to exceptional standards of guest comfort and timeless elegance.
“We are thrilled to be moving ahead with these major refurbishments and look forward to welcoming guests aboard and sharing our unique vision of ultra-luxury cruising, both in terms of service and physical environment,” said Manfredi Lefebvre, chairman of Silversea.
“We pride ourselves on being the reference when it comes to ultra-luxury cruising and this investment reflects our long-term commitment in this regard toward our ships, our guests and our crew.”
Silver Whisper, host to the iconic World Cruise, will undergo a refurbishment that will take place by the end of 2016, and has been largely influenced by feedback from World Cruisers, proving that Silversea guests truly are at the heart of the company operations.
This also ensures that 2017 World Cruisers will get to experience a top coat of luxury, and be the first guests to help massage the fresh feel into the understated glamour that the brand has become synonymous with.
The luxurious suites will be refurbished and the bathrooms adorned with dark emperor marble flooring, delivering a tangible sense of elegance that can be felt from head to toe.
Public spaces will be the key beneficiaries of the bursary, where a freshly tiled pool and new chaise lounges will breathe new levels of comfort and style into open air spaces.
Dining areas at The Restaurant and La Terrazza will be re-skinned with plush new carpet and elegant hard-wood parquet respectively, and will each receive new furniture, echoing the theme of contemporary glamour throughout the ship and augmenting the high-quality service packaged around the finest culinary offerings at sea.
Finally, Silver Whisper’s communications hub is set for a major overhaul with the addition of two satellite antennas, vastly improving internet speeds on board and enabling guests to take full advantage of the new, interactive TVs and on demand movies available in every suite.
The refurbishment programme extends to Silver Wind during her dry dock scheduled for October 2016.
Once again, refurbishment of furniture and furnishings, technology upgrades that include interactive TVs and on demand movies complete the contemporary, yet understated levels of luxury in every suite.
Additionally, the concept restaurant La Terrazza and the flagship Main Restaurant will both have new flooring bestowed upon them, enhancing the overall feel of gastronomic excellence delivered on board.
Silversea is committed to the continued evolution and progression of elegance at sea, a commitment that is exemplified by this level of investment, and one that will continue to be driven by, and at the service of its guests.
Further fleet-wide refurbishment will be communicated in due course.
