Silversea extends pause in operations until July

Silversea Silver Shadow at sea to undergo extensive refurbishment

Silversea has announced that it has extended its pause in operations until July due to the coronavirus (Covid-19) crisis.

Silversea plans to resume sailings with ship Silver Muse on 16 July. This will be followed by Silver Spirit on 17 July, Silver Whisper on 18 July, Silver Cloud on 20 July, Silver Explorer on 23 July and Silver Shadow from 26 July.

Silver Wind is not due to return to service until 11 November.

Those booked on cancelled voyages will receive a 125 per cent cruise fare refund in the form of a future cruise credit valid for two years.

In a statement, Silversea said: “The health, safety and well-being of our guests and crew is always our highest priority.

“We greatly appreciate the understanding of our valued guests and travel partners during these fluid, unprecedented and challenging times.

“Our goal during these times of uncertainty is to be in constant communication with them, to make sure they have the most up-to-date information and can make informed decisions.”

Silversea’s latest announcement comes shortly after the line confirmed that it would be delaying the launch of its new ships Silver Moon and Silver Origin.

Silver Moon, which was due to launch in August, will not set sail until at least October due to the closure of the Fincantieri shipyard having delayed its completion, while Silver Origin, which was due to launch in July, will now set sail a month later than originally planned.
