Silversea Cruises and Fincantieri have announced the signing of a contract worth approximately 310 million euros for the construction of a new ultra-luxury cruise ship.
The ship is due to join the Silversea fleet in 2020.
The Silver Moon (pictured above) will be the sister ship of Silver Muse, which was delivered in April 2017 at the Fincantieri shipyard in Sestri Ponente (Genoa).
The vessel will accommodate 596 passengers and have all-suite accommodation, the hallmark of the cruise line’s experience.
The new build will expand its fleet to 10.
Among the highlights of the new ship, the Green Star 3 Design will be a ‘stand out’ feature. It is assigned to ships that are designed, built and equipped in order to prevent air and water pollution.
Manfredi Lefebvre d’Ovidio, Chairman of Silversea, said: “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 with a sister ship, which will bring us closer to fulfilling my father’s dream of a 12-ship fleet. We pride ourselves on delivering an outstanding luxury cruise experience, and are delighted to partner once again with expert luxury shipbuilder Fincantieri as we continue to grow and evolve our fleet”.
