Fincantieri to Extend Silversea’s Silver Spirit

Cruise company Silversea has unveiled plans for its first-ever ship lengthening, as it agreed with Italian shipbuilder Fincantieri to transform the company’s 2009-built Silver Spirit.

The works will take place early next year at Fincantieri’s Palermo shipyard. Starting in early March, Silver Spirit will be lengthened by inserting a prebuilt 49-foot-long midsection housing 6 silver suites, 26 veranda suites and 2 panorama suites. Technical upgrades will also be implemented, according to the shipbuilder.

“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,” Christian Sauleau, Executive Vice President of Fleet Operations for Silversea Cruises, said.

“The lengthening of a ship always entails a rare level of complexity in a sector with already high technological content as the cruise one is,” Giorgio Rizzo, Senior Vice President Services of Fincantieri, said.

The 36,009 gross ton vessel can currently accommodate 608 guests and 412 crew.
