Expedition ship Silver Discoverer will be updated.
Luxury cruise line Silversea is investing $170 million into its fleet in the biggest refurbishment plan in the cruise line’s history.
Silversea chairman Manfredi Lefebvre said that the “investment reflects our long-term commitment in this regard toward our ships, our guests and our crew” and that both the service onboard and physical environment on Silversea ships will be upgraded.
Silver Whisper, which sails Silversea’s World Cruise, will be renovated by the end of the year with dark emperor marble flooring added to suite bathrooms, new tiling added to its pool area and chaise longues added to public spaces.
The ship’s restaurants—including The Restaurant and La Terrazza—will also be refreshed, with new carpet, hard-wood parquet and new furniture. Two satellite antennas will also be put onboard, giving guests access to high-speed internet for the ships’ interactive TVs and on-demand movies available in every suite.
Guests on the ship’s 2017 World Cruise will get the first look at the new additions.
Like Silver Whisper, Silver Wind will be getting new furniture, a technology upgrade and new flooring in its restaurants. The upgrades will be made when the ship dry docks in October.
Silver Wind’s pool deck will be completely taken out and replaced with teak flooring “more akin to a luxury yacht than a cruise ship,” Silversea said.
Expedition ship Silver Discoverer will also enter dry dock in October for its refurbishment. The ship’s Discoverer lounge will go from a breakfast venue to a day-long lounge. New furniture will be added to the ship’s pool deck on the main restaurant, The Restaurant, will be remodeled with a lighter color palette.
Silversea will announce the upgrades to the rest of its fleet at a later date.
