Silversea’s new ship Silver Moon has moved a major step closer to coming into service after successfully completing sea trials.
Silver Moon, which is being built at Fincantieri’s shipyards in Italy, completed the trials between 8 and 20 August with a reduced crew of 320 due to Covid-19 health protocols.
Work has now restarted on the ship’s interiors ahead of the official delivery to Silversea on 30 October.
“Silver Moon will be an innovative addition to our expanding fleet of ultra-luxury ships,” said Roberto Martinoli, Silversea’s president and chief executive.
“Building on the success of our beloved flagship Silver Muse, Silver Moon will push boundaries in travel to unlock meaningful experiences for our guests around the world.
“The fact that our beautiful Silver Moon nears completion, despite such challenging circumstances, is a testament to the exceptional resilience and expertise of all involved in her build. For this I am very proud.”
Silver Moon is a sister ship to Silver Muse, which launched in 2017, and will become the second vessel to join the Silversea fleet this year after Silver Origin was delivered in June.
