Silver Whisper Returns From Refurbishment

Fans of Silversea Cruises can now look forward to new facilities onboard the line’s ultra-luxury ship, Silver Whisper. The 10-year-old vessel embarked on its first voyage from Rome this week after returning from a successful 14-day drydock refurbishment in Genoa, where enhancements were made to refresh the shipboard environment to echo Silversea Cruises’ newest ship, Silver Spirit.


All accomodation onboard received new carpets, headboards and curtains, with sofas and chairs featuring new upholstery. New mattresses produced exclusively for Silversea Cruises, incorporating an unique individual spring system with a reversible soft and firm side cater to the preferences of each guest. Completing the luxury bedding is a memory foam pillow top covering the mattress when it is configured as a Queen-sized bed. By mid-June 2010, all suites will also be equipped with new alarm clocks integrated with iPod docks. In the larger suites, Silversea has replaced the verandah furniture and added new, state-of-the-art home audio systems (BeoSound 3200 in Owner’s, Grand and Royal / BeoSound 1 in Silver) from Danish audio-visual specialists Bang & Olufsen.


Silver Whisper’s public areas received a refresh with new carpets installed in the corridors, landings, staircases and the Observation Lounge. The reception area, La Terraza cafe, Panorama Lounge, spa, Card Room and Conference Room were reupholstered and enhanced with new wood flooring, carpeting, curtains and wall treatments, while The Restaurant’s hardwood floor was reconditioned and polished. For a greater entertainment experience, Silversea has installed an upgraded sound system at the Show Lounge, Panorama Lounge and La Terraza.


Outdoors, the swimming pool has been fitted with new tiles with the pool area outfitted with new deck furniture and sound and light system for shows and entertainment events. The jogging track has been lined with new artificial turf, while large awnings shade guests at the outdoor dining section of La Terraza and The Grill (formerly known as the Pool Grill), which will showcase the popular Black Rock cooking concept introduced on Silver Spirit.


The revamped Silver Whisper will spend the rest of 2010 in Scandinavia, North and South America, sailing from ports including Bridgetown, Buenos Aires, Copenhagen, Montreal, New York, Nice, Rio de Janeiro, Santiago, Southampton, Stockholm and Waterford. Silversea Cruises operates a fleet of 5 intimate, all-suite vessels and the regal expedition ship, Prince Albert II, on itineraries around the world.
