Silver Wind

Silver Wind, launched in 1995, was the second ship introduced by Silversea. Much like its sister ship, Silver Cloud, the Wind is a shining example of intimate Italian cruising. Fewer guests, combined with more space and Silversea’s signature six-star personalized service make for the ultimate sailing experience.

Silver Wind received enhancements in 2008 including the addition of an Observation Lounge with room for 60 people and a new spa, beauty salon and fitness center that has floor-to-ceiling windows. The spa now includes four massage rooms, one body treatment room, one dry sauna and one steam sauna.
