Silversea today announced a fleet-wide refurbishment plan to the tune of $170 million.

“We are thrilled to be moving ahead with these major refurbishments and look forward to welcoming guests aboard and sharing our unique vision of ultra-luxury cruising, both in terms of service and physical environment”, said Manfredi Lefebvre, Chairman of Silversea. “We pride ourselves on being the reference when it comes to ultra-luxury cruising and this investment reflects our long-term commitment in this regard toward our ships, our guests and our crew”.

The Silver Whisper will undergo a refurbishment that will take place by the end of 2016, with new suites and bathrooms, along with interior upgrades. The Silver Whisper’s communications hub is set for a major overhaul with the addition of two satellite antennas, vastly improving Internet speeds onboard and enabling guests to take full advantage of the new, interactive TVs and on demand movies available in every suite, said a company release.

The refurbishment program extends to the Silver Wind during her drydock scheduled for October 2016, with interior, stateroom and major tech upgrades. 

The Silver Discoverer will also benefit from this investment in 2016, entering drydock this October.
