Silver Spirit has made her final port call before undergoing an extensive lengthening project in Italy.
Docking in Dubai, the ship completed an eight-night cruise from Mumbai.
Silver Spirit will enter dry dock at the industry-leading Fincantieri shipyard in Palermo on March 5th, where she will remain until May 1st.
She will undergo large-scale refurbishment works, which will include the insertion of a prebuilt 15-metre-long (49-feet-long) segment into the ship’s midsection, making her the first luxury ship to be lengthened in this manner.
With the aim of augmenting the onboard experience for Silversea guests, the project will dramatically enhance each of the ship’s public spaces with beautiful interior design, taking inspiration from the cruise line’s flagship vessel, Silver Muse.
“Based on the wonderful feedback from guests sailing aboard 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 by our reimagined Silver Spirit,” said Christian Sauleau, executive vice president of fleet operations for Silversea.
