Silversea Cruises’ Silver Spirit has become the first ultra-luxury cruise ship to sail with a certification in infection prevention for maritime (CIP-M) from DNV GL.

The certification is built on a combination of technical maritime knowledge and infection prevention expertise and is the most comprehensive infection prevention certification available in the maritime industry.

Silver Spirit‘s new three-year certification is tailored to the ship and has been awarded following a close audit of all aspects of operations. After an initial company audit that concluded in the first week of August, a comprehensive onboard survey was completed on August 14 and the certification was formally awarded before the end of the month.

Focus areas of the audits included the cruise line’s Covid-19 outbreak prevention and response plan, infection prevention leadership and communication flow, medical equipment management, and infection risk management processes.
