Today marked an important milestone for Silversea Cruises as the company officially took delivery of its new flagship Silver Muse. The new ultra-luxury cruise ship built by Fincantieri had been presented to the company on Sunday at the shipyard in Genoa Sestri Ponente.
At the ceremony Roberto Martinoli, CEO at Silversea Cruises, said: “Today marks another milestone for Silversea, our guests and our colleagues as we celebrate our new flagship, Silver Muse, joining the fleet. The attention to detail throughout the ship is a reflection of our dedication, in conjunction with Fincantieri, to offer the ultimate luxury experience at sea.”
At 40,700 gross tons and the capacity to accommodate 596 passengers in 298 sumptuously appointed suites, Silver Muse represents an evolution of Silver Spirit, which was delivered in 2009 by Fincantieri, and redefines the ultra-luxury ocean travel experience, while maintaining the small-ship intimacy and spacious all-suite accommodations which are hallmarks of the Silversea experience.
Manfredi Lefebvre d’Ovidio, the Chairman of Silversea added: “Since the laying of the keel in December 2015, Silversea and Fincantieri have been working closely together to produce one of the finest ships to leave this shipyard and we look forward to welcoming our first guests onboard. On behalf of everybody at Silversea, I would like to thank Ficantieri for their tireless commitment to deliver Silver Muse to us on schedule and to such a high standard of craftsmanship.”
Expanding Silversea’s fleet to 9 ships, Silver Muse will offer guests the highest number of large suites (Silver, Royal, Grand and Owner’s) in the fleet, and the greatest number of connecting suites for families and friends.
Silver Muse offers a welcoming blend of spaciousness, luxury, and comfort, where guests can feel immediately at home. In addition, with eight venues, she will offer more restaurants than any other ultra-luxury ship offering the finest and widest bespoke culinary experience at sea. With an abundance of outdoor spaces, including three open-air restaurants and lounge areas Silver Muse is set to redefine open-air cruising.
Silver Muse will be christened in Monaco on April 19.
