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.

“We are delighted to celebrate this milestone with our partner and expert shipbuilder Fincantieri,” says Roberto Martinoli, Silversea’s Chief Executive Officer. “From 2020, Silver Moon will leverage on the success of our beloved flagship, Silver Muse, to unlock immersive new travel experiences for our guests around the world. 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.”

Silver Moon will push the boundaries of ultra-luxury cruise travel with pioneering new concepts. One such example is S.A.L.T. (Sea and Land Taste)℠, an innovative new culinary programme that will unlock immersive culinary experiences for guests.

S.A.L.T. on Silver Moon

Silver Moon will take guests on a journey around the world's food cultures via the .S.A.L.T. programme, where guests will dine on fine cuisine in eight restaurants, including:

  • Silversea’s Hot Rocks concept at The Grill
  • Kaiseki , the authentic Japanese restaurant
  • The .S.A.L.T. Kitchen—a space entirely dedicated to the authentic flavours of sailed destinations
  • S.A.L.T. Lab will enable guests to learn about local ingredients and artisanal techniques, through workshops, tastings, and demonstrations.
  • The S.A.L.T. Bar will allow guests to sample the most authentic flavours of the destination, through a large selection of regional wines, spirits, and other drinks

While preserving the elegant design of Silversea’s Silver Muse, which has been incredibly successful among the cruise line’s guests, many of Silver Moon’s public spaces will be enhanced: the Dolce Vita lounge, the Connoisseur’s Corner, the Pool Deck, and the Spa and Fitness Centre will each undergo comprehensive redesigns for the benefit of guests’ comfort and enjoyment. Silver Moon’s Kaiseki restaurant will also be reimagined, as well as the ship’s La Dame restaurant, which will incorporate bespoke Lalique crystal panels. Elsewhere, La Terrazza, Silver Note, Atlantide, the Arts Café, The Grill, Spaccanapoli, the Panorama Lounge, the Observation Library, the Venetian Lounge, and the Casino will each welcome guests with atmospheres of whispered luxury.
