Supplier: Silversea Cruises

Silversea Cruises and Fincantieri signed a contract worth about 310 million euros, for the construction of a new ultra-luxury cruise ship, due to join the shipowner’s fleet in 2020.

The new unit, tentatively named “Silver Moon,” will be a sister ship of “Silver Muse,” delivered in April at the shipyard in Sestri Ponente (Genoa). At 40,700 gross tons and with a capacity to accommodate 596 passengers on board, she will maintain the small-ship intimacy and spacious all-suite accommodations which are hallmarks of the Silversea experience.

The new build will expand Silversea’s fleet to ten ships. Once operating, she will significantly raise the bar in the ultra-luxury segment with a wealth of enhancements to the on board experience, while satisfying the uncompromising requirements for comfort, service, and quality of the world’s most discerning travellers.

Among the voluntary notations of the ship, the “Green star 3 Design” stands out. It is assigned to units that are designed, built and equipped to prevent air and water pollution. Furthermore, the “COMF-NOISE A PAX” and “COMF-NOISE B CREW” are assigned on the basis of the noise levels measured on the ship. Results have confirmed the extremely high level of comfort offered to passengers on board.

Fincantieri has built 78 cruise ships from 1990 to today (55 since 2002), while 31 others are currently being designed or built in the Group’s yards.
