It’s one thing to know that travel agent associations are lobbying the government on agents’ behalf. It’s another to actually hear it and see it in action.
MONACO — Silversea Cruises has unveiled the first glimpses of its newest ship’s interiors in a video series hosted by Chief Marketing Officer Barbara Muckermann.
The five virtual ship tours explore Silver Moon’s new S.A.L.T. venues, public spaces, restaurants, and suites.
“Taking delivery of our beautiful new Silver Moon was a very proud moment for our cruise line,” says Muckermann. “The ship represents the pinnacle of ultra-luxury travel in the 21st century, and we have made many innovative enhancements from her sister ship, Silver Muse, for the enjoyment of our guests.
“From our new S.A.L.T. ecosystem, which will enable travellers to delve deeper into destinations through the lens of food and drink, to the enriched public spaces, the enhancements aboard Silver Moon symbolize a refinement of Silversea’s already ultra-luxury cruise experience. We cannot wait to welcome our guests aboard this beauty in the near future.”
Debuting aboard Silver Moon is the innovative new culinary enrichment program S.A.L.T., an acronym of Sea and Land Taste, which will enable guests to travel deeper through a range of destination-focused gastronomic experiences—both onboard and ashore. As part of the S.A.L.T. program, three new venues will offer immersive culinary experiences, forming a hub of culinary discovery on Deck 4.
Among the largest of eight restaurants aboard Silver Moon, S.A.L.T. Kitchen is the first large-scale regional restaurant aboard a luxury cruise ship, offering a menu that changes with the destination and a regionally inspired wine list. S.A.L.T. Lab is a test kitchen that enables guests to learn about local ingredients and artisanal techniques through insightful workshops, tastings, and demonstrations. And S.A.L.T. Bar allows guests to sample the most authentic flavors of the destination, through a large selection of regional wines, spirits, and other drinks.
Silver Moon takes influence from the successful design of its sister ship, Silver Muse, and maintains the small-ship intimacy and spacious all-suite accommodations that are hallmarks of the Silversea experience. At the same time, a number of public spaces have been reimagined: the Dolce Vita lounge, the Connoisseur’s Corner, the Pool Deck, and the Spa and Fitness Centre have each undergone comprehensive redesigns.
Silver Moon accommodates 596 guests in 298 elegant suites, 96% of which include a balcony. Featuring luxurious amenities, Silver Moon’s spacious suites benefit from one of the highest space-to-guest ratios of any luxury cruise accommodation. And, with bespoke, handcrafted luxury beds by Savoir the ship’s top 10 suites (four Owner’s Suites, four Grand Suites, and two Royal Suites), guests in these accommodations will experience a distinctive level of comfort even as they sleep.
Guests in every suite will enjoy the dedicated service of a butler, an in-suite bar stocked with preferred beverages, in-suite dining available 24 hours per day, and various other luxurious amenities.
Also aboard Silver Moon, there will be eight restaurants, each with a distinct concept. On Deck 4, popular restaurants Atlantide and Kaiseki have each undergone extensive redesigns when compared to Silver Muse. Aboard Silver Moon, Atlantide has been enlarged to accommodate up to 220 guests. At Kaiseki, guests will witness expert sushi chefs in action as they prepare fresh sushi and sashimi and other Asian dishes. For fine French cuisine, La Dame will be enlarged to accommodate 56 guests. Plus, as part of a unique new collaboration, Lalique has crafted 11 bespoke crystal panels to elevate its decor. Rounding out the dining venues are La Terrazza, Silver Note, The Grill, Spaccanapoli, and S.A.L.T. Kitchen.
