Review of Silver Spirit

Launched in 2009, MS Silver Spirit cruise ship is the biggest vessel in the Silversea fleet, with a design similar to the newest fleet mates Silver Muse (2017) and Silver Moon (2020).

History - construction and ownership

Silversea Cruises is a Monaco-based privately-owned cruise company and top-luxury travel brand. It was established in 1994 as joint venture of V-Ships Monaco (fka Vlasov Group) and Lefebvre Family of Rome Italy. In 2018, RCCL-Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd acquired 2/3rd of the company. Silversea now has a fleet of smaller-sized boutique cruise vessels with passenger capacity between 100-700. Company's business model is to operate yacht-like vessels in the industry's ultra-luxury-all-suite ship category. Silversea's all-inclusive fares include beverages (also selected wines), gratuities (none are allowed), travel insurance, port charges, one or more shore excursions (per voyage).

Silver Spirit cruise ship (Silversea)

The 36,009-ton, 600-passenger cruise ship Silver Spirit is an all-suite top luxury liner. It became Silversea fleet's largest boat after entering service as the 6th vessel in 2009. Spirit is considerably bigger than the other vessels in the fleet. The ship's original (before the 2018 stretching) space-per-guest ratio (6700 ft3 per passenger) was one of the luxury ship travel industry's best. The ship often attracts a younger clientele, including families with teenagers.

At the end of September 2017, the shipowner Silversea announced plans for the company's ever first ship lengthening project.

MS Silver Spirit cruise ship lengthening

  • MS Silver Spirit was stretched in 2018 by the Italian shipbuilding company Fincantieri at the Palermo shipyard (Sicily, Italy).
  • During drydock 2018 (March 5 - May 1), the vessel was lengthened by inserting a prebuilt midsection (length 15 m / 49 ft). This made Silver Spirit the world's first stretched luxury cruise ship. The new section (hull and superstructure) added to the liner a total of 34 new cabins. During the drydock refit, the ship was also extensively refurbished and updated.
  • The vessel's GT tonnage was increased from 36009 to 39,519 tons. Its crew capacity was increased from 376 to 412. The passenger capacity was increased from 540 to 608 (12%), dining capacity (15%), outdoor seating (20%).
  • The refit project cost USD 70 million and involved over 500 workers, approx 450,000 man hours, 846 tons of steel, 360,892 ft (110 km) of new cables, 26,247 ft (8 km) of new pipes.

Cruise itinerary program

Silver Spirit itinerary program is based on “all-inclusive luxury” voyages in Europe (the Black Sea and the Mediterranean from Venice, Barcelona, Athens/Piraeus, Istanbul) and in the Caribbean (with departures from Barbados and Fort Lauderdale). The ship also offers Transatlantic repositioning crossings.

Cabins

Silver Spirit provides 270 suites (4 wheelchair-accessible) in 11 grades, all ocean-view, the largest of the fleet, 95% of them with private verandas. They range in size – from 312 to 1,668 sq.feet and each has a walk-in closet, safe, chest, spa robe and slippers. All cabins are completely wireless, with iPod station, hair dryer, alarm clock, binoculars, and even umbrella. Additional amenities in Owner’s, Silver, and Grand suites include two hours worldwide complimentary phone use, afternoon canapes, and dinner at officers’ table. A junior attendant and butler are assigned to each of the suites.

Shipboard dining options - Food and Drinks

The Silver Spirit ship has six completely different restaurants. The menu selections are not just creative, they are exquisitely presented, a real food art. The Grill’s menu hot rocks and La Terrazza new dinner robust menu are steps in future gourmet cuisine. As for Silver Spirit gratuity, all of these are included in the fare, and nothing additional is expected. 

Follows the complete list of Silver Spirit restaurants and food bars.

  • The Restaurant (open-seating dining room with top-quality gourmet cuisine; features the most the Mediterranean themed meals, and always available standard menu with daily specials; all three meals are waiter-served and a la carte)

  • La Dame, Indochine, Atlantide and Seishin are four restaurants added during drydock 2018.
  • Silver Note is a classy, dinner-only restaurant/supper club with a 5-course menu and live (baby grand piano, jazz and blues) music performances and dance floor.

The television sets are the last word of technology – real “flat-screens”. Programming line-up includes CNN International, Fox News, ESPN and BBC World. Seven are the complimentary laundry rooms and soap is provided. Also available, but pricey, are laundry, dry cleaning, pressing service.

Silver Spirit cruise ship (Silversea)

Traditional entertainment onboard the Silversea Spirit ship is a little quieter than usual. Sure, there’s bingo, team trivia, golf competitions, an occasional movie, but most of the energetic entertainment takes place after dark with productions in Broadway style and fine live jazz in Stars Supper Club.

The Spirit’s stunning Spa includes an array of massages and body scrubs, and thermal ceramic-tiled suite offering heated lounge chairs. Even a Botox doctor is available onboard. The spa is located on Deck 6, spread out on 8,300-sq.foot, featuring a fitness centre, beauty salon, nine treatment rooms, two steam rooms and two sauna rooms. The treatments include Private Hamman Experience – ancient Arabian scrub performed by the therapist, “do-it-yourself” scrub bar glow, bamboo massage. The additional services include facials, tooth whitening, acupuncture, cellulite reduction, lime glows, milk wraps.

The fitness centre is open from 6:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m., but there is just one bike, three ellipticals, four treadmills – though all of them with TV screens. A few resistance machines and free weights are also available, but because of the tiny space, the two benches for free weight are so close together that you can’t work out with someone next to you – with more than five or six people in the room, it feels cramped. A Silver Spirit fitness trainer offers Pilates, stretching exercises, and yoga at no cost. For a nice jog, there’s Deck 10, where ten circuits equal one mile. 

Additional amenities include Launderettes (3), Medical centre, complimentary 24-hour Room Service, Internet/WiFi Access.

Silver Spirit Wiki

Silver Spirit cruise ship was built in Italy, in 2009, at the shipyard of Fincantieri in Ancona Italy. Architect of the vessel is Giacomo Mortola. Godmother is Silvia Lefebvre, sister of Silversea Cruises' chairman Manfredi Lefebvre. The ceremony took place at Port Everglades (Fort Lauderdale, Florida) on the 21st of January, 2010. Following the tradition, Silvia Lefebvre smashed a Salmanazar (9-litre bottle) of Moet & Chandon champagne in ship's hull. Before the naming ceremony, the Spirit had departed from Barcelona on the 23rd of December, 2009 on her maiden voyage to Lisbon, Portugal. Then she made a Transatlantic crossing and docked at Port Everglades for the christening event. After the ceremony, on the same day, Spirit began her inaugural 91-day world cruise along the shores of America.

Silversea's Spirit ship has one of the highest space-to-guest ratios in the cruising industry with a score of 67. This means the generous 6700 cubic feet for every passenger on board. The vessel's guest-to-crew ratio is 1,4, a bit higher than other Silversea ships, scoring usually 1,3. All officers and crew members are European trained.

In 2017, Silver Spirit will be replaced as a flagship by the new Silver Muse.

Silversea's "flight and cruise" package deals (by the line's Silver Sky programme) are inclusive of the luxury cruise fare, discount round-trip airfare (Economy Class) and airport-pier-airport transfers.

Silversea's "hotel and cruise" package "Silver Shore Simply Hotel" offers overnight 5-star luxury hotel stays with the option of adding transfers or upgrades. The upgraded cruise and hotel package ("Silver Shore Grande Hotel") offers 1-3-nights landmark hotel stays (or at a boutique property) and is inclusive of private transfers (airport-hotel and hotel-pier).
