The 19-year-old ship to be brought up to snuff with enhancements

The spunky, little 388-passenger Silver Shadow, sister of Silver Whisper debuted in 2000. Both siblings bring joy to the luxury line’s upscale passengers offering smart, casually chic and offering seamless sailings.
My husband Richard have spent many days on both ships. We’ve done everything from two weeks to 28-days cruises. One magic voyage was from Los Angeles to New Zealand in the fabulous owner’s suite. Other sailings were in Europe, Caribbean and French Polynesia. Each one a delight.
Some nips and tucks
As happens, ships age. Now the time has come for Silver Whisper’s face lift. In November a major rejuvenation will bring her up to snuff with the newer Silver Muse. Enhancements include a new atrium on deck 5. There will also be a remodeling of La Dame restaurant, the casino and Connoisseur’s Corner. Suites face a major top to bottom overhaul. Even that fabulous owner’s suite will also get a new look
Much to pamper seekers delights, the Zagara Spa is getting a new steam and sauna while the fitness center takes on updated equipment. “We are committed to maintaining the impeccable standards of the Silversea experience, and this major refurbishment of Silver Shadow represents a significant investment for the benefit of our guests,” said Roberto Martinoli, Silversea’s CEO. “Whether relaxing in the new Atrium or sipping a cognac in the expanded Connoisseur’s Corner, our guests will notice not only a revitalized look but also greater choices and flexibility as a result of this project’s enhancements.”
When to proverbial bandages come off Silver Shadow’s new look debuts Dec. 3 on seven night Caribbean itineraries from Fort Lauderdale to San Juan.
Silversea operates a fleet of all suite ships that include the Wind, Shadow, Whisper, Spirit and Muse. Fares include tips, all beverages from Champagne and beyond, WiFi and superb cuisine. The line will expand with five more ships in the next few years starting with Silver Moon. After the Moon comes the Dawn and Origin and two Evolution-class ships.
