(Monaco -- July 10, 2018) Silversea Cruises releases brand new images of the recently lengthened Silver Spirit. Between March 5 and May 1, the ultra-luxury, all-suite ship underwent an extensive dry dock renovation at the Fincantieri Shipyard in Palermo, Italy. The ship was cut in half and a prebuilt 49-foot (14.9-metre) midsection was inserted, providing increased space and enhanced amenities for Silversea’s guests. The latest pictures depict the ship’s outstanding transformation, which took inspiration from Silversea’s flagship, Silver Muse.
Most discernible on the ship’s exterior is the enlargement of the pool space on deck nine. A result of the lengthening, there is now a large beach area and more room for guests to relax on the sun deck.
Besides implementing stylish décor enhancements throughout the ship, the extensive renovation also greatly improved the layout of Silver Spirit’s public spaces, including the reformatting of her dining options to an 8-restaurant layout, with the addition of Atlantide, Indochine, Spaccanapoli and Silver Note – as on Silver Muse.
Among the ship’s new amenities are the Zagara Spa, Tor’s Observation Library and the Dolce Vita Lounge. Also new to Silver Spirit, the Arts Café is an inviting new space that offers guests the chance to enjoy art exhibitions and a selection of reading material in a distinctively stylish environment. With both indoor and outdoor seating, the Arts Café is designed to provide a comfortable getaway with a relaxed ambience.

Guest accommodation options were also upgraded as part of the project, ensuring the exceptional standard of Silversea comfort is maintained. Aboard Silver Spirit, guests enjoy spacious ocean-view suites, sumptuous cuisine, and the personalised service of a butler. Enriching the experience are such all-inclusive amenities as complimentary premium wines and spirits, speciality coffees, bottled water, juices and soft drinks; an in-suite bar stocked with guests' preferences; in-suite 24-hour dining service; lecture and enrichment programmes; and unlimited complimentary Wi-Fi.
"We're delighted to share these spectacular new images of Silver Spirit,” says Barbara Muckermann, Silversea's Chief Marketing Officer. “It is with our guests in mind that we have invested in the transformation of our beloved Silver Spirit. The lengthening was an amazing feat of engineering and our guests are now enjoying the many benefits of the ship’s amplified onboard experience."
Silver Spirit is currently sailing in Northern Europe where she will spend the summer offering a series of mostly seven-day voyages between Copenhagen and Stockholm. Her schedule for autumn and winter includes Canada, New England and Caribbean itineraries, among others.
