Silversea Relaunches Silver Wind
Silversea Cruises, which rotated the 296-passenger Silver Wind out of the fleet just after the events of September 11, didn't merely dock the vessel and forget about it. During the hiatus, Silver Wind underwent a major refurbishment with new enhancements like Saletta, an alternative restaurant, a wine and cigar room and what it's calling a "Spa Tranquility Room." The latter is one of the hot new elements in spa design - new ships like Norwegian Dawn also have added one - and it offers passengers waiting for treatments a restful, away-from-it-all sanctuary within the facility.

The refurbishment, which took place at Genoa's T. Mariotti Shipyard, also includes new furnishings, draperies, carpets, artwork and bedding. Public areas, as well as cabins, got the refurbishment treatment as well.

A company spokesman says, tongue-planted-firmly-in-cheek, that only one aspect of the makeover is causing passenger criticism. Some passengers, he said, preferred the Silver Wind's old fitness center, which was so basic and uninspiring they felt justified in giving their workout routines a vacation. Now, the spiffy new fitness facility, with its panoramic view (it was relocated to the Observation Deck) and enlarged space, inspires no such excuse.
