Next year, Silversea will take delivery of its first brand-new, purpose-built luxury cruise ship in seven years: the 596-guest Silver Muse. Not only is she the newest ship in the Silversea fleet, she’s also the largest, carrying an additional 56 guests over her near-sister, Silver Spirit.
Since we visited her at the Fincantieri Shipyard in Genoa, Italy back in December, Silver Muse has come a long way. Ten days before Christmas, we stood in front of the drydock for the traditional keel-laying ceremony. The ship that was to become Silver Muse hadn’t really taken shape yet; little more than a few blocks of the lower portion of her hull existed.
Eight months later, that’s all changed. On July 1, Silver Muse was officially floated out, her hull meeting the water that she will sail for the first time ever. Next, she’ll undergo her final fitting-out and sea trials before entering service next April.
Don’t be fooled by her exterior appearance: this is no Silver Spirit 2.0. While many of the Silversea features you know and love are returning to Silver Muse in a new and updated form, there are plenty of new features as well – including larger suites, more top-of-the-line suites, and an entirely new dining concept for the line.
