Luxury cruise line, Silversea Cruises has announced plans for a second extensive refurbishment of Silver Wind, completing the major refurbishment project started in December 2018.
The second drydock period, scheduled for summer 2020, will give the ship ice-class classification and improved cruising versatility and see improvements to the vessel’s interior.
We are delighted to announce that our beloved Silver Wind will undergo a further extensive refurbishment in the summer of 2020, completing the enhancements made in December 2018. 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.
says Roberto Martinoli, Silversea’s CEO.
Part of Project Invictus – a long-term plan to grow and improve Silversea’s already luxurious fleet of ships – the second extensive refurbishment of Silver Wind will begin in August 2020.
The second extensive refurbishment will enhance Silver Wind’s comfort and Silversea’s hallmarks of luxury. Along with the ice-class hull and equipment for cruising in remote regions, the ship will gain a fleet of Zodiacs and kayaks.
- All suites will undergo another full upgrade
- The Spa & Salon will each be completely refurbished
- The Reception/Atrium will be overhauled
Additional improvements will be made to La Dame, La Terrazza, the Main Bar, the Observation Lounge, the Panorama Lounge, the Pool Bar, public bathrooms, and the Theatre, among other spaces.
Silver Wind Itineraries
In the Caribbean, Silver Wind will continue to visit San Juan, Barbados and St. Barthelemy, while her intimate size will also enable her to unlock smaller ports, including Bequia, Anguilla and Les Saintes.
Mediterranean favourites, including Venice, Monte Carlo and Barcelona, will also continue to feature on the ship’s sailed itineraries, along with more secluded destinations like Syros, Mljet, and Antibes.
Silver Wind will also journey to extraordinary expedition destinations, including the Arctic and Antarctica.
The enhanced ship will resume service on 10th November 2020, embarking on her inaugural season in Antarctica.
As part of the 2018 refurbishment, Silver Wind’s interior public spaces including the Show Lounge, the Restaurant, the Card and Conference Room, and the Library were revamped.
New carpets throughout the ship and refurbished corridors were also added during the refurb.
All guest suites have been upgraded and balcony floors have been enhanced. Outdoors, decks have been renovated and furniture has been replaced.
The announcement of Silver Wind’s second refurbishment follows the news that Silversea Cruises has signed agreements for three new ultra-luxury ships.
