Silversea has revealed that it is to lengthen Silver Spirit by 49 feet during a renovation next year.
The work, which will take place at Fincantieri’s shipyard in Palermo, will see six silver suites, 26 veranda suites and two panorama suites added to the vessel. The entire ship is to be modernised to bring it up to the standards of recently-launched Silver Muse.
“Based on the wonderful feedback from guests sailing onboard our beautiful Silver Muse, we believe the comprehensive makeover we have planned for Silver Spirit will enrich the onboard experience and be equally appreciated by guests. They will see many of Silver Muse’s innovations and elevated comforts embodied in our reimagined Silver Spirit,” said Christian Sauleau, executive vice president, Silversea fleet operations.
The work is due to take place in March 2018.
Giorgio Rizzo, senior vice president services of Fincantieri said: “The lengthening of a ship is a complex and highly technical procedure and we are proud that Silversea has selected Fincantieri and the Palermo shipyard for this project. From start to finish it will be supervised by Fincantieri including the design, execution and delivery to the shipowner.”
