Luxury cruise line Silversea completed a major refit of its Silver Whisper cruise ship, just in time for the all-suite vessel to host an exclusive 116-day epic World Cruise 2017 from San Francisco to Monte Carlo departing on January 6.
The gracefully reimagined cruise ship features an array of enhancements from new carpeting in all the guest suites to new wall treatments and rejuvenated wood flooring in the restaurants, Connoisseur's Corner, Panorama Lounge, Spa and Beauty Salon.
The Restaurant and La Terrazza have also been outfitted with newly upholstered chairs. A new marble-topped bar and stylish new wood display cases grace the Observation Lounge, which has been refreshed with rich new wood paneling and wood accents.
The pool deck has been upgraded with the installation of two new whirlpools. Plus, beautiful new synthetic turf has been placed on the jogging and spa decks, creating an inviting setting for outdoor activities.
"Our goal with this refurbishment was to refresh Silver Whisper's signature style and honor her superb legacy of hosting our iconic world cruises by revitalizing the onboard experience for our guests," said Roberto Martinoli, Silversea's CEO.
"Silver Whisper's enhancements are a perfect complement to the superior level of personalized service and warm hospitality that our guests receive on every voyage, whether it's a 7-day Mediterranean sailing or an around-the-world adventure."
The cruise ship renovation, completed during Silver Whisper's dry dock in the Bahamas this month, represents the third phase of a $170 million fleet refurbishment program, the largest in the company's history. As part of the initiative, Silver Discoverer and Silver Wind have also received comprehensive makeovers this year. And Silver Cloud is scheduled for refurbishment in late 2017, which will include converting the vessel to an ice-class expedition ship.
