First look at Silversea’s Silver Nova, scheduled for delivery in 2023

MIAMI — Silversea Cruises is giving the industry a first look at Silver Nova.

Scheduled for delivery in 2023, Silver Nova will be the 11th ship in Silversea’s fleet.

In a first for the cruise line, the ship will have an asymmetrical design, one that will give rise to all-new outdoor spaces for an unprecedented openness to the destination, with a reimagined, outward-facing pool deck; an al fresco dining area; and a sky bar that offers panoramic views from the ship’s aft.

“Silver Nova represents the next iteration of Silversea’s unique take on luxury, with an entirely new design approach that will enhance our guests’ cruise experience,” said Roberto Martinoli, Silversea’s President and CEO.

“With her outward-facing, asymmetrical layout and her all-new outdoor venues, Silver Nova will offer our guests a brand new way to connect and engage with each destination. Moreover, with her groundbreaking environmental credentials, Silver Nova will strengthen our position at the forefront of sustainable cruise travel,” added Martinoli.

The following venues and deck spaces highlight Silver Nova’s all-new outdoor offering:


Silver Nova’s pool decks will offer 280 sunbeds on decks 10 and 11, so plenty of space for relaxing and socializing. The horseshoe-shaped pool area will occupy a generous space on the starboard side of the ship, affording unobstructed views on the destination from the swimming pool, the adjacent pool bar, and the sunbathing areas.

At 1,400 square feet, the main pool is larger than on Silversea’s previous ships, reimagined with a new layout, wide entrance steps, and more shallow waters in which guests can sit.

Deck 10’s pool bar offers a centralized hub for socializing, day and night. Silver Nova’s uppermost level, deck 11 forms an amphitheatre-shaped structure with deck 10. It will offer guests a quieter, more intimate space for relaxing, with expansive views over the destination and out to sea.

At its centre, overlooking the ship’s port side, extends an all-new infinity edge whirlpool, named The Cliff Whirlpool.


Silver Nova’s asymmetrical design has also enabled the introduction of two new food and drinks venues on deck 10. The Marquee is the first of the pair, an al fresco dining venue for up to 220 guests, incorporating The Grill and Spaccanapoli. The second of the two new food and drinks venues, The Dusk Bar, is a brand new open-air sky bar for up to 70 guests, with 270-degree, panoramic views from Silver Nova’s stern.

Altogether Silver Nova will offer eight dining venues, including a selection of Silversea’s signature restaurants on decks 3 and 4, reimagined with enhanced designs.

The largest of Silver Nova’s restaurants, La Terrazza on deck 4, will seat 340 guests. Floor-to-ceiling windows will surround the restaurant’s interior space, offering panoramic views.

A guest favourite, Atlantide will seat 270 guests on deck 3 as the ship’s second-largest restaurant, complete with a new interior design.

Silversea’s signature French restaurant, La Dame, will be more spacious than ever on deck 4, with an enlarged capacity for 70 diners and higher ceilings.

Meanwhile sushi favourite Kaiseki will maintain its minimalist, sophisticated aesthetic, welcoming up to 40 guests on deck 4.

Silver Nova is also set to become the world’s first low-emissions cruise ship with advanced hybrid technology that utilizes fuel cells, emitting zero harmful emissions while in port, an industry first.

The 728-passenger Silver Nova will offer 13 different suite categories, the largest variety of suites in Silversea’s history. Every suite will offer guests the use of a private veranda. Silver Nova will also offer Otium, the cruise line’s Roman-inspired wellness program, and S.A.L.T., its immersive culinary offering.
