Silversea has taken delivery of its latest ship Silver Moon – increasing the luxury line’s fleet to nine vessels.
The Royal Caribbean Group-owned brand received Silver Moon during a ceremony held at Fincantieri’s shipyard in Ancona, which respected “physical distancing” rules.
Silver Moon, a sister ship to Silver Muse, will accommodate a maximum capacity of 596 passengers in 298 suites with several of its public spaces being “reimagined”, including signature dining experience, La Dame, and an enlarged Atlantide restaurant.
Roberto Martinoli, Silversea’s president and chief executive, said: “We are absolutely delighted to welcome Silver Moon to the Silversea fleet.
“The epitome of 21st century luxury travel, she possesses a number of innovations that will build on the success of her sister ship Silver Muse, such as our pioneering new Salt culinary programme, which we are eager for our guests to experience."
Silver Moon is the third Sliversea ship to be built by Fincantieri, with a fourth, Silver Dawn, due to be delivered in 2021.
Giuseppe Bono, chief executive of Fincantieri, added: “We are honoured to have partnered with Silversea in launching their highly successful Muse-class ships, and we are confident that Silver Moon will strengthen the line’s legacy of pushing boundaries in luxury cruise travel”
