APRIL 2, 2017 — One day head of the ship’s official delivery, shipbuilder Fincantieri today held a ceremony at its Genoa Sestri Ponente shipyard to present Silver Muse, the latest addition to the Silversea Cruises fleet.
“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,” said Giuseppe Bono, noting that with the current record workload level, Fincantieri guaranteed full employment of its sites dedicated to cruise ship building until 2025.
Manfredi Lefebvre d’Ovidio, Silversea’s Chairman, said: “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.”
Roberto Martinoli, CEO at Silversea Cruises, said: “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.”
At 40,700 gross tons and accommodating 596 passengers on board, Silver Muse will be the Silversea’s largest vessel yet and represents an evolution of the 36,000 gt , 540 passenger Silver Spirit, delivered Fincantieri in 2009.
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. She will also offer more restaurants (eight) than any other ultra-luxury ship.
