Silversea Cruises has signed a contract with Fincantieri, worth approximately 310million Euros for the construction of a new ultra-luxury cruise ship.

As the sister ship of Silver Muse - which was delivered earlier this year at the Fincantieri shipyard in Sestri Ponente, Genoa - this new ship has been tentatively named Silver Moon and is due to join the fleet in 2020.

The new build will expand the line’s fleet to ten ships and will be designed to raise the bar in the ultra-luxury segment with a series of enhancements to the on board experience. At 40,700 gross tons and with a capacity to accommodate 596 passengers on board, the new small-ship will also maintain the brands hallmarks of on board intimacy and spacious all-suite accommodation.

Manfredi Lefebvre d'Ovidio, Chairman of the cruise line, 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”.
