Silversea has completed a major renovation of Silver Whisper, just in time for the all-suite ship to host World Cruise 2017, a 116-day voyage from San Francisco to Monte Carlo that departs on 6 January.

“Our goal with this refurbishment was to refresh Silver Whisper‘s signature style and honour her superb legacy of hosting our iconic world cruises by revitalising 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 personalised service and warm hospitality that our guests receive on every voyage, whether it’s a seven-day Mediterranean sailing or an around-the-world adventure.”

The reimagined 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 fitted with newly upholstered chairs. A marble-topped bar and wood display cases grace the Observation Lounge, which has been refreshed with wood panelling and wood accents. The pool deck has been upgraded with the installation of two new whirlpools, while new synthetic turf has been placed on the jogging and spa decks.

The renovation, completed during Silver Whisper‘s dry dock in the Bahamas last month, represents the third phase of a $170 million fleet refurbishment programme, the largest in the company’s history. As part of the initiative, Silver Discoverer and Silver Wind have also received comprehensive makeovers in 2016, while Silver Cloud is scheduled for refurbishment later this year, which will include converting the vessel to an ice-class expedition ship.
