An “extensive refurbishment” is planned for Silversea ship Silver Shadow this winter.

The revamp of the 19-year-old vessel will include a new atrium and enhancements to suites.

The work to the 388-passenger ship is due to be carried out in November.

The refurbishment will be inspired by the design of the luxury line’s new ship Silver Muse.

Silver Shadow is due to resume service on December 3 with a seven-night Caribbean sailing from Fort Lauderdale in Florida.

Silversea CEO Roberto Martinoli said: “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.

“Whether relaxing in the new atrium or sipping a cognac in the expanded Connoisseur’s Corner, our guests will notice not only a revitalised look but also greater choices and flexibility as a result of this project’s enhancements.”
