Silversea will kick off the second phase of the refurbishment of Silver Wind next August, finishing the project it started earlier this month.

The second phase will include a strengthened ice-class hull that will give Silver Wind ice-class classification to allow it to sail to more remote regions in 2020, including the Drake Passage, which connects the southwestern part of the Atlantic Ocean with the Pacific near the South Shetland Islands in Antarctica.

The ship’s size already allows it to travel to some smaller ports, including Caribbean cities like Bequia, Anguilla, and Les Saintes; and Mediterranean ports including Venice, Monte Carlo, and more. 

The refurbishment will also include the addition of a fleet of Zodiacs and kayaks for guest exploration, a revamped theater, a completely refurbished spa and salon, and new additions to its suites and staterooms, when it officially reenters service on Nov. 10, 2020.

“Evolving the ship into an ice-class vessel, complete with Zodiacs and kayaks, will diversify her offering for our guests. She will be capable of unlocking deep travel experiences in both classic and expedition destinations, from the Caribbean to Antarctica, and everywhere in between,” said Silversea CEO Roberto Martinoli.

The ship will sail a 15-day itinerary out of Ushuaia on Nov. 21 and Dec. 5, 2020.
