Silversea Cruises new Silver Moon luxury cruise ship touches water
Silversea Cruises new ultra-luxury cruise ship, Silver Moon, touched water for the first time at Fincantieri Shipyard in Ancona, Italy on 29th August. A momentous milestone in the eagerly awaited ship’s build, the float out was marked by a celebratory event and a traditional coin ceremony, held in the presence of top-level representatives from Silversea and Fincantieri, plus VIP guests. Fincantieri will now begin work on Silver Moon’s elegant interior, bringing the ship to the hallmark level of finish that characterises Silversea’s ultra-luxury fleet.

With a range of pioneering new features that will push the boundaries of luxury travel, Silver Moon will be the most elegant ship in her class.”

“Today, with the float out of Silver Moon, we draw ever-closer to achieving my Father’s dream of a 12-ship fleet,” says Manfredi Lefebvre, Silversea’s Executive Chairman. “Silver Moon is one of five ships currently on order for our cruise line; I look forward to fulfilling my Father’s vision, and, with the support of Royal Caribbean Cruises, expanding the fleet further still in the future. This celebration holds particular significance in the history of Silversea, as it occurs in the same year as our cruise line’s 25th anniversary as the leading pioneer in ultra-luxury cruising.”
