Ice-Classed and Enhanced: Silver Wind

Silversea Cruises has announced plans for a second extensive refurbishment of Silver Wind, completing the major refurbishment project started in December 2018.

The second dry dock period, which is scheduled for summer 2020, will give the ship ice-class classification and improved cruising versatility, as well as a number of improvements to the vessel’s interior. As a result, Silver Wind will unlock a broader range of deep travel experiences for guests in ultimate comfort, cruising both classic and expedition itineraries.

Part of Project Invictus – a long-term plan to grow and improve Silversea’s fleet of ships – the second extensive refurbishment of Silver Wind will begin in August 2020. As well as benefiting from a strengthened ice-class hull, new state-of-the-art equipment for cruising in remote regions, a fleet of Zodiacs and kayaks for on-water exploration, and an upgraded theatre, the second extensive refurbishment will enhance the ship’s comfort and Silversea’s hallmarks of luxury – all suites will undergo another full upgrade; the Spa & Salon will each be completely refurbished; the Reception/Atrium will be overhauled; and 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. Accommodating fewer guests (just 254) and retaining its characteristic sense of small-ship intimacy, Silver Wind will offer higher space ratios, a higher crew-to-guest ratio, and more upper suites, among other enhancements.

Silver Wind will continue to take guests to such destinations as the Caribbean and the Mediterranean. The ship will also journey to extraordinary expedition destinations, including the Arctic and Antarctica.

Silver Wind will resume service on Nov. 10, 2020, embarking on its inaugural season in Antarctica.

“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,” says Roberto Martinoli, Silversea’s CEO. “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.”
