Ahead of her World Cruise 2019, Silver Whisper will undergo extensive renovation in 2018. Between December 8 and December 19, Silver Whisper will be in dry dock in Freeport in the Bahamas, as improvements are made to increase the level of guest satisfaction. The exciting announcement follows the opening of sales for Silversea’s World Cruise 2020, which will see Silver Whisper travel to all seven continents – including Antarctica – as part of an itinerary that is unprecedented in its variety.
Guests embarking Silver Whisper will benefit from a broad-ranging set of enhancements: skilled craftspeople will invigorate many of the ship’s public areas, both inside and out, with a fresh décor; all guest suites will be refreshed. The ship’s latest enhancements will be implemented with a similar design and features as can be found on the recently delivered Silver Muse, and on the Silver Spirit which is currently undergoing a significant renovation.
The renovation’s most discernable impact will be made to the ship’s public spaces, which will be redecorated in line with the interior design of Silver Muse. Inside, new carpets will be laid in the hallways, main restaurant, casino, card/conference room, main bar, and in the theatre. The main restaurant will undergo a full upgrade, bringing it to an exceptional standard, while La Dame – another sophisticated dining space – will benefit from new curtains and a polished floor. The casino and card/conference room will also be refreshed with new curtains and new chairs. The Zagara Spa – which was recently introduced to Silver Whisper, following its success aboard Silver Muse – will become more luxurious with new furniture and new equipment. In the ship’s gym, new state-of-the-art machinery will be installed to optimize the offering of onboard wellness facilities.
Guest accommodation will also be improved in line with the design of Silver Muse to ensure the ultimate comfort of travelers: nine Terrace suites on deck five will be transformed into Veranda suites, offering guests enhanced privacy; 40” flat screen televisions, loaded with innovative interactive media systems, will advance the in-suite entertainment options; and all bathrooms will be revitalized with polished granite surfaces.
Outside, storage space for Zodiac boats and a crane will be installed in preparation for the addition of the motorboats ahead of the World Cruise 2020; as a result, guests travelling aboard Silver Whisper for the World Cruise 2020 will be able to access remote locations to travel deeper.
From the selection of movies available in guest suites to the assigned scents of each space, every aspect of the refurbishment project has been conceived with guest comfort in mind. Even Silver Whisper’s background music is undergoing a transformation: Silversea is partnering with Radiopark – a specialist supplier of mood music – to enhance the ship’s onboard atmosphere with modern renditions of timeless melodies.
The renovation of Silver Whisper is just one part of Silversea’s extensive investment in their fleet. With the launch of Silver Muse in 2017, the conversion of Silver Cloud to an expedition ship and the current extensive renovation and lengthening of Silver Spirit, it is an exciting time in the history and development of Silversea.
