Silversea Announces New Sister Ship To Silver Muse

Posted: September 12, 2017

Silversea Cruises and Fincantieri have announced the signing of a contract worth around AU$463 million (310 million euros) for the development of construction of another ultra-luxury cruise ship due for delivery in 2020, likely to be named “Silver Moon”.

Silver Moon will be the sister ship of “Silver Muse”, which was conveyed in April 2017 at the Fincantieri shipyard in Sestri Ponente (Genoa).

Silver Moon will have the small-ship intimacy and spacious all-suite accommodation which is the hallmark of the Silversea experience, at 40,700 gross tons and with the capacity to accommodate 596 passengers.

Extending the Silversea’s fleet to 10 ships, Silver Moon will fundamentally increase current standards in the ultra-luxury segment with an abundance of enhancements to the on board experience, while at the same time fulfilling the uncompromising necessities for solace, service, and quality of the world’s most discerning travellers.

Among the features of the new ship, the “Green Star 3 Design” will be stand out feature. It is doled out to ships that are composed, manufactured and prepared keeping in mind the end goal to avert air and water contamination. Moreover, the “COMF-NOISE A PAX” and “COMF-NOISE B CREW” are appointed on the premise of the noise levels measured on the ship. Results have demonstrated that new-builds assigned these principles offer the absolute best levels of solace to guests on board.

Manfredi Lefebvre d’Ovidio, Chairman of Silversea, commented: “Based on the high praise Silver Muse has earned with our guests, we are eager to build on our flagship’s success and move forward with a sister ship, which will bring us closer to fulfilling my father’s dream of a 12-ship fleet. We pride ourselves on delivering an outstanding luxury cruise experience, and are delighted to partner once again with expert luxury shipbuilder Fincantieri as we continue to grow and evolve our fleet”.  

Giuseppe Bono, CEO of Fincantieri, stated: “We have a trusted relationship with Silversea which was born many years ago and is renewed today thanks to this important order. We are very proud to build a new ship for the Silversea fleet, and follow on from the success of Silver Muse.” Bono concluded: “In recent years Fincantieri has continued to show that it is at the forefront of luxury ship building and we look forward to working with Silversea on this exciting build”.
