 Silversea Cruises continues its commitment to luxury cruising with a new initiative called Project Invictus. Created in partnership with Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd., Project Invictus promises to offer guests an experience unlike any other.

Project Invictus comes as Silversea continues its largest overall investment in the company’s history. In addition to Silver Moon and Silver Dawn – which are expected to join the fleet in 2020 and 2021 respectively – Silversea has ordered three new ships as part of Project Invictus: Silver Origin and two Evolution-class ships. Project Invictus’ Silver Origin will be used primarily for cruising the Galapagos Islands. Extensive refurbishments were also made to Silver Whisper in December 2018, and Silver Wind. Planned to be finished by the summer of 2020, Silver Wind’s refurbishments include a strengthened ice-class hull and the addition of Zodiacs. 

Silversea is also upgrading its already exceptional offering of culinary luxury. In addition to chilled champagne in their suites upon embarkation, guests will have 24 hour access to complementary Ars Italica caviar. Available both in-suite, and in all restaurants throughout Silversea’s ships, complimentary caviar will be offered by the tin and as a garnish for meals – such as tartare and lobster. Ars Italica is a leading producer of caviar and uses sustainable techniques to farm the highest-grade product and to support the repopulation of sturgeon to northern Italy. Caviar joins a slew of top-grade ingredients that distinguish Silversea’s onboard canapé selection, including foie gras, truffle, tiger prawns, and macarons.

Across Silversea’s fleet, around 2,400kg of caviar are consumed each year, a 340% increase from the previous year. Additionally, there’s approximately 180,000 bottles of champagne consumed yearly, 66,100kg of lobster, 66,100kg of tenderloin steak, 33,100kg of striploin steak, and 58,000kg of fresh berries (including strawberries, blueberries and raspberries). Guests also have access to a remarkable variety of meats on board: from the ‘Italian Piemontese’ served in the Italian La Terrazza restaurant, the ‘French Limousine’ in the French La Dame restaurant and the ‘American Angus’ served in Atlantide.

Silversea has also added more variety to its industry-leading selection of wines, including around 50 to 70 labels designed to immerse guests in the culinary culture of a diverse number of regions. On Silversea ships, more than 670,000 bottles of wine are consumed each year. From the most reputable labels and iconic wine producers to lesser-known bottles of extraordinary quality, these bottles are carefully selected by Silversea’s expert Wine Ambassador. Every major wine grape is represented, as part of a collection that comprises both ‘old world’ and ‘new world’ wines; from champagne through to dessert wines. Many premium wines are also offered alongside the complimentary list, at unusually competitive prices.

Another enhancement made possible by Project Invictus – and offered exclusively by Silversea’s expedition ships – is a complimentary DVD package for guests. Produced by a professional onboard videographer, these DVDs will showcase the experiences created by the cruise line. With this package, you’ll leave Silversea with beautifully captured memories.

Moreover, the cruise line’s television programming has been upgraded, meaning its in-suite entertainment is among the best at sea. As part of the enhancement, guests will now be able to watch most live football and basketball fixtures and other significant broadcasts. Additionally, Silversea offers approximately 100 blockbuster movies (including roughly 20 new releases each month), 90 hours of tailored destination and documentary content, plus a further 150 hours of television shows.

“I am very pleased to hear such positive feedback on Project Invictus from guests,” says Roberto Martinoli, Silversea’s CEO. “I am receiving emails on a daily basis from guests who appreciate the enhanced offering, as well as the exceptional service for which Silversea is renowned. It is clear that Project Invictus has made a significant impact since its implementation. I take pride in being the CEO of a cruise line that is so committed to the enjoyment of its guests.”
