Silversea will be revamping its ships after it was announced that Royal Caribbean, one of the world’s largest cruise lines, completed its acquisition of the luxury line.
The multi-year initiative called Project Invictus will take Silversea’s ultra-luxury offerings to the next level and will include ship revitalisation programs.
The first Invictus enhancements will begin rolling out on the Silver Muse this upcoming August 19th where an upgraded Champagne and caviar offering will be initiated. Immediately thereafter, these and other enhancements will be implemented fleet-wide, impacting a wide variety of onboard features and strengthening Silversea’s reputation for indulgent, luxurious embellishments.
The planned renovation of Silver Whisper in December 2018 will be much more comprehensive than initially anticipated and will include a partial refit of all guest cabins.
Silversea’s Silver Wind will also enter into an enhanced dry dock in December 2018. Other vessels will join the overarching plan for a fleet-wide “Musification” which will take inspiration from the design of the very successful cruise line’s flagship, Silver Muse.
The plan will be completed shortly after with an enhanced dry dock of the Silver Shadow.
Silversea’s Manfredi Lefebvre d’Ovidio, will remain Executive Chairman of the company and 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 realise 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.”
Royal Caribbean has acquired two-thirds of Silversea and Chairman and CEO of Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd Richard Fain said, “We are proud to officially welcome Silversea’s industry-leading team to the RCL family.”
With Silversea joining the RCL lineup alongside Royal Caribbean International, Celebrity Cruises, Azamara Club Cruises, TUI Cruises and Pullmantur Cruceros, the Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd fleet now numbers 59 ships with an additional 15 on order.
