Silver Spirit Review

Review of Silver Spirit

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

The vessel (IMO number 9437866) is currently Bahamas-flagged (MMSI 311022500) and registered in Nassau.

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. The 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 600-passenger 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 boat's GT tonnage (volume) was increased from 36009 to 39519 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 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.

 

Decks and Cabins

Silver Spirit staterooms (270 total) are all in Suite categories (11 cabin grades, 4 are wheelchair-accessible), all outside, fleet's largest, and 95% of them have private step-out balconies. Cabins range in size from 300 ft2 / 28 m2 to 1480 ft2 / 138 m2, each has a walk-in closet, electronic safe box (in the closet), chest of drawers, spa bathrobe and slippers.

The boat has 12 decks, of which 9 are passenger-accessible and 8 with cabins.

All cabins are completely wireless, with iPod stations, hairdryers, alarm clocks, binoculars and umbrellas (during the voyage). Additional amenities in top-grade suites include 2-hours worldwide complimentary satellite phone use, in-cabin dining (afternoon canapes), 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.

Seven are 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 center, 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 Gym is open from 6 am to 8 pm, 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 Center/Infirmary, complimentary 24-hour Room Service, Internet/WiFi Access.

Follows the complete list of Silver Spirit lounges, clubs and other entertainment venues for kids, teens and adults.

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-liter bottle) of Moet & Chandon champagne in the hull. Before the naming ceremony, the Spirit had departed from Barcelona on December 23, 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 program) 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).

In 2021 (July-August) the ship entered drydock at Chantier Naval de Marseille (Marseille France) for regular maintenance and hull repainting.

Silver Spirit refurbishment 2018 review

At the end of September 2017, Silversea announced plans for the company's first-ever ship lengthening project. During drydock 2018 (March 5 - May 3, done by the Italian shipbuilder Fincantieri at Palermo shipyard, Sicily), MS Silver Spirit 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 (6x Silver Suites, 26x Veranda Suites, 2x Panorama Suites).

During the drydock refit, the boat was also extensively refurbished and updated. The project's purpose was to enhance shipboard amenities and redesign all public areas to resemble Silversea’s newest boats Silver Muse and Silver Moon.

MS Silver Spirit cruise ship lengthening

Despite the overall size increase, the vessel retained its intimate feel with a crew-to-passenger ratio of 1:1,5.

Following the refit, to the ship were also added new dining options. All existing staterooms and venues were fully renovated. The pool deck was redesigned. New Health & Fitness centre was created. To the existing restaurants were added the new Indochine (replacing Le Champagne), Atlantide (replacing the main dining room), Silver Note (supper club with live music) and Spaccanapoli (outdoor dinner restaurant / daily bar for fast food and drinks).

Arts Cafe (a multipurpose venue with live performances, gourmet coffees and teas) and Silver Note (themed food dinner restaurant with live music and dance floor) were added aft on deck 8.

The Casino Lounge was moved (from deck 8 to deck 7) and on its place was added Silver Note. Dolce Vita (deck 5 Atrium Bar) is a new cocktail bar lounge with live grand piano music performances. The old "Spa at Silversea" (deck 6) was upgraded to Zagara Spa. The Library (deck 7) was transformed into Casino, and was created the new "Tor's Observation Library".

All top-tier suites received new handcrafted toppers, handmade mattresses (Savoir) and smart HDTVs. A new category suite (Balsorano Suite) was added, decorated with items of personal value to Silversea Cruises chairman Manfredi Lefebvre d'Ovidio.

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.
