A series of renovations to the Silversea fleet has just been announced after a deal with Royal Caribbean to acquire a majority stake in the luxury line was formally approved this week.
‘Project Invictus’ will produce a series of upgrades to specific areas onboard all Silversea ships, including an upgraded champagne and caviar ‘offering’.
Chairman and chief executive Richard Fain stated: “We are proud to officially welcome Silversea’s industry-leading team to the RCL family.
This is a dynamite combination and we can’t wait to work with Manfredi, Roberto and the entire team as together we take Silversea to the next level.”
Silver Muse’s updates will begin on August 19th before being rolled out fleet-wide.
According to Royal, the planned renovation of Silver Whisper in December 2018 will be “much more comprehensive” than initially planned and will include a partial refit of all guest cabins.
Silver Wind will enter dry dock in December this year followed by an enhanced dry dock of Silver Shadow.
Royal has bought a 66.7% stake in Silversea, the italian ultra-luxury line, worth $2 billion; Manfredi Lefebvre d’Ovidio will remain Eexecutive chairman of Silversea and retain a 33.3% stake.
Lefebvre said: “We’re excited to join the Royal Caribbean family and ready to begin this next chapter as part of an industry leader that is uniquely qualified to support Silversea’s future growth.
This partnership enables us to realize our vision of being the uncontested leader in ultra-luxury cruising and expedition, taking our guests to more than 1,000 destinations aboard some of the world’s most luxurious vessels.”
