Silversea Cruises has signed a new contract with Fincantieri shipbuilders to construct a new vessel set to join the Silversea fleet in 2020.
The Silver Moon will be a sister ship to the cruise line’s flagship vessel, Silver Muse, and will bring Silversea’s fleet to ten ships total.
According to Silversea, the 310 million euros ($371 million) addition will “significantly raise the bar in the ultra-luxury segment with a wealth of enhancements.”
“Based on the high praise Silver Muse has earned with our guests, we are eager to build on our flagship's success and move forward,” Silversea chairman Manfredi Lefebvre d'Ovidio said in a statement.
As Silver Muse’s sister ship, Silver Moon is expected to sail 596 passengers in all-suite accommodations, with a variety of dining options (Silver Muse entered service with more dining options than any other ultra-luxury ship).
Among innovations announced for Silver Moon is a new “Green star 3 Design” that Silversea says will prevent air and water pollution, as well as new noise level designations that “have confirmed the extremely high level of comfort offered to passengers on board.”
