MONACO — Silversea Cruises will unveil its new flagship, the Silver Muse, in the spring of 2017.
The new ship is being built by Fincantieri and will accommodate 596 guests with a gross registered tonnage of 40,000.
“The ship represents an exciting evolution of the Silver Spirit that will redefine luxury ocean travel, while enhancing the small-ship intimacy and spacious all-suite accommodations that are the hallmarks of the Silversea experience,” said the company.
The addition of the Silver Muse will expand Silversea’s fleet to nine ships.
“We have always had a special relationship with Fincantieri, since my father ordered from them the first cruise vessels for Sitmar Cruises in 1987,” said Manfredi Lefebvre d’Ovidio, chairman of Silversea. “Both companies have a clear understanding of what today’s affluent traveller seeks, and each approaches the market with originality, creativity and quality. The management team led by Giuseppe Bono has been exceptional in managing Silversea’s project.”
Silversea’s CEO, Enzo Visone, states that “With enhanced design specifications and enriched content, the Silver Muse will continue to build on the sophistication, innovative style and ground-breaking concepts for which Silversea ships are renowned. This ship contributes to our ambitious growth plans that will ensure our continued leadership in ultra-luxury cruising.”
Additional details and specifications on the new ship will be announced in the near future.
