Silversea Cruises has revealed details of its upcoming refurbishment to the Silver Endeavour, adding 10 new guest suites and additional crew accommodation.
Following its inaugural season in Antarctica, the cruise line’s newest expedition ship will enter the San Giorgio del Porto shipyard in Genova, Italy, on April 3, 2023, to receive an array of new enhancements.
In response to high demand for the ship’s most spacious accommodations, Silversea will add six new suites on deck eight and four new suites on deck five, introducing two new suite categories to the ship.
“Silver Endeavour’s refurbishment will strengthen her status as the world’s most luxurious expedition ship,” said Roberto Bruzzone, senior vice president of marine operations, Silversea Cruises, in a press statement. “With our guests’ cruise experience in mind, we are broadening her range of accommodation options by introducing two new suite categories, enriching a selection of public venues, and creating space for addition crew members to maintain one of the industry’s highest crew-to-guest ratios. Building on the success of her inaugural Antarctic season, Silver Endeavour will welcome travelers in the Arctic from June 2023, offering deeper connections and greater destination reach than ever.”
Silversea Enhances Suite Offerings With New Categories
Two new Master Suites, located towards the ship’s aft, will offer uninterrupted, 270-degree views from their 312-sf verandas, as well as large living areas with panoramic, vaulted glazing. The 1,163-sf suites will also feature king-sized or twin beds, a walk-in closet, bathroom with a walk-in shower and separate whirlpool bath, as well as a convertible sofa in the living room to accommodate a third guest.
Four new Signature Suites, also located towards the ship’s aft, will range from 721-850 sf and feature an open living room and dining area, expansive bedroom with king-sized or twin beds, floor-to-ceiling windows, walk-in closet, and an adjoining bathroom with a generously sized walk-in shower and whirlpool bath. The room category will include a convertible sofa to accommodate a third guest, as well as spacious 167-269-sf verandas.
While on the ship’s starboard side on deck four, four new 356-sf Classic Veranda Suites will maintain the traditional layout, features, and amenities of Silversea’s existing Veranda Suites, including a 52-sf veranda.
Four new crew cabins will also be added to the ship, which will host seven additional crew members, increasing the ship’s expedition team to 22 and providing guests with greater access to specialists for a deeper immersion into the destination. Other additions to the ship will include the installation of handcrafted Lalique crystal panels in La Dame — Silversea’s signature French restaurant.
Following the refurbishment in Genova, Silver Endeavour will undertake two voyages in the British Isles and Iceland, before embarking upon its inaugural Arctic season from June 3, with nine voyages set to include many of the Polar Region’s most remote destinations, including Pond Inlet, Cape York, and Qaanaaq, among others.
