Silversea Cruises is to carry out additional refurbishment on ‘Silver Wind’ to allow the cruise ship to sail both classic and expedition itineraries.
Part of Silversea’s ‘Project Invictus’, this second drydock will take place during the summer of 2020 and will give the cruise ship Ice Class classification. 
She will offer voyages to Antarctica and the Arctic beginning in late 2020.
As well as benefiting from a strengthened Ice Class hull, new equipment for cruising in remote regions, a fleet of Zodiacs and kayaks for on-water exploration will be fitted, and an upgraded theatre will be installed during the refit.
All suites will undergo another full upgrade; the Spa & salon will each be completely refurbished; the reception/atrium will be overhauled; and additional improvements will be made to La Dame, La Terrazza, the main bar, the observation lounge, the Panorama lounge, the Pool bar, public bathrooms, and the theatre, among other shipboard areas.
Accommodating fewer guests (just 254) and retaining her characteristic sense of small-ship intimacy, ‘Silver Wind’ will offer higher space ratios, a higher crew-to-guest ratio, and more upper suites, among other enhancements.
The upgraded ship will resume service on 10th November, 2020, embarking on her inaugural season in Antarctica.
As part of the 2018 refurbishment, ‘Silver Wind’s’ interior public spaces underwent extensive renovations: the Show lounge, the restaurant, the card and conference room, and the library were each comprehensively revamped.
New carpets throughout the ship and refurbished corridors also invigorated public spaces, Silversea said. All guest suites were upgraded and balcony floors were enhanced. Outdoors, decks were renovated and furniture replaced.
The announcement of ‘Silver Wind’s’ second refurbishment followed the news that Silversea Cruises has signed agreements for three new ultra-luxury ships. More enhancements to Silversea’s rapidly growing fleet will be announced in the near future, the company said.
