Silversea Cruises has officially begun building its next luxury flagship – the new Silver Muse – at the Fincantieri shipyard in Genoa Italy. Present for the initial construction ceremony, where the cruise ship’s first steel was cut, were Silversea’s chairman Manfredi Lefebvre d’Ovidio and Fincantieri’s CEO Giuseppe Bono.
Few details about the Silver Muse have yet been revealed beyond it being based on Silversea’s current Silver Spirit flagship and those in the comments below from Silversea’s chairman. What is known is that the new vessel will launch in the spring of 2017 with “new concepts to enhance the onboard experience,” according to the luxury line.
“The start of construction of Silver Muse is a very proud occasion for us and I am delighted to be back at Fincantieri to celebrate this milestone,” said Lefebvre d’Ovidio. “The concept of this ship descends from our vision of luxury, that is a very personal element for a guest, and that’s why Silversea has always offered a tailored cruise experience, shaped around the preferences of each different person. Silver Muse will make a further step ahead in this direction, offering our guests a simply-divine experience.
“Silver Muse will be an intimate ship, with just the right proportions: the only one with 40,700 grt and less than 300 suites to be launched in the ultra-luxury segment in the coming years. It will provide our guests with an outstanding dining experience, offering the highest number of restaurants than any other vessel in the category, while ensuring the same, unparalleled level of service we are famous for. And, of course, Silver Muse will bring the world to our guests, featuring new, carefully curated itineraries that will allow them to visit the most exceptional destinations in the utmost elegance at sea.”
