Silver Muse, the new ultra-luxury cruise ship built by Fincantieri for Silversea Cruises, was presented at Fincantieri’s shipyard in Genoa Sestri Ponente.
Guests attending the ceremony included His Eminence Cardinal Angelo Bagnasco, Archbishop of Genoa, who blessed the ship, Giovanni Toti, Governor of Liguria, Manfredi Lefebvre d’Ovidio, the Chairman of Silversea Cruises, and Giuseppe Bono, CEO of Fincantieri.
At 40,700 gross tons and the capacity to accommodate 596 passengers on board, Silver Muse represents an evolution of Silver Spirit, delivered in 2009 by Fincantieri in Ancona, 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.
The new build expands Silversea's fleet to nine 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, she will offer more restaurants than any other ultra-luxury ship – eight venues – offering the finest and widest bespoke culinary experience at sea.
Among the voluntary notations of the ship, the 'Green star 3 Design' stands out. It is assigned to units which are designed, built, and equipped in order to prevent air and water pollution. Furthermore, the 'COMF-NOISE A PAX' and 'COMF-NOISE B CREW' are assigned on the basis of the noise levels measured on the ship. Results have confirmed the extremely high level of comfort offered to passengers on board.
"A cruise ship is the result of the most complex innovation and product process and it represents the state of the art of this industry, as Silver Muse proves."
-Giuseppe Bono, Chief Executive Officer, Fincantieri
"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."
-Manfredi Lefebvre d'Ovidio, Chairman, Silversea Cruises
"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."
-Roberto Martinoli, Chief Executive Officer, Silversea Cruises
