Silver Spirit is Now 49 Feet Long and Greatly Enhanced

On May 3, Silversea’s  Silver Spirit   left Fincantieri Shipyard in Palermo 49 feet longer, following the completion of a complex lengthening and refurbishment project. Having been cut in half, lengthened with the insertion of a pre-built section, and renovated extensively,  Silver Spirit  was greatly enhanced and has now embarked upon her inaugural voyage, which departed amid jubilation from Civitavecchia (Rome) on May 6.

Silver Spirit ’s 59-day dry dock period ran with precision and according to its schedule, with roughly 1,000 skilled workers committing approximately 450,000 hours to ensure the lengthening’s punctual completion. With the aim of amplifying guests’ onboard experience in line with the successful design of Silversea’s flagship,  Silver Muse , the lengthening project has brought the ship to an exceptional standard: among other improvements, stylish décor enhancements have brought superlative comfort and a sense of spaciousness to public areas and suites; the ship’s pool deck has been enlarged; a new eight-restaurant arrangement has increased dining options, with the introduction of Spaccanapoli, Silver Note, Atlantide, and Indochine, as well as the renovation of La Terrazza; and a number of new amenities have upgraded the onboard offering, including the Arts Café, Tor’s Observation Library, the Zagara Spa, the Panorama Lounge, and the Dolce Vita lounge.

Silversea is celebrating  Silver Spirit ’s maiden voyage with a number of onboard enrichments to mark the momentous occasion. Bound for Barcelona, the inaugural itinerary is the first in a varied series of European voyages. In September,  Silver Spirit  will cross to North America, where she will remain until November. From then, she will welcome guests in the Caribbean.

“I appreciate the complexity of this feat of engineering,” comments Manfredi Lefebvre d’Ovidio, Silversea’s Chairman. “As such, I am extremely proud of the amazing job my team and Fincantieri have done. Our beloved  Silver Spirit  resumes service in a condition that is even more beautiful than before.”
