Video: Silversea Ship Cut In Half

Silversea Cruises shared with ABC’s Good Morning America a video of the dry-docked Silver Spirit in Sicily cut cleanly at the midsection so workers can install a prebuilt 49-foot segment. From ABC: “The company called the lengthening of cruise ships a “trend” in small ship luxury cruising. The multi-million dollar project to refresh the Silver Spirit is less expensive than building an entirely new ship.”

According to Travel + Leisure, “the extension will take 500 workers more than 450,000 man hours to complete. Changes to the ship include a longer sky deck and pool, a new spa, two new public spaces and a new aerobics area. All onboard suites will also be refurbished during the project. Upon completion, the Silver Spirit will measure 691.3 feet in length and have an increased capacity of 12%.”

It’s a video of a cruise ship cut in half. It’s pretty cool!
