Prince Albert lauds the arrival of Silver Muse at christening in Monaco

Silver Muse became the ninth luxury ship in the Silversea fleet on Wednesday (19 April) when she was christened at a special ceremony in Monaco by company chairman Manfredi Lefebvre d'Ovidio’s daughter, Costanza.

The historic celebration featured performances by the Sinfonietta Orchestra of Rome and renowned violinist Charlie Siem.

Over the past two weeks, guests from around the world have been invited to preview the new flagship on a number of exclusive voyages in the Mediterranean.

Initial feedback has been overwhelmingly positive, with the quality of the finished Fincantieri vessel and Silversea’s level of service by the Silver Muse crew exceeding guests’ expectations. 

Accommodating 596 passengers, the ship boasts numerous dining options, including three restaurants new to the Silversea fleet:

  • Atlantide, a seafood and grill concept representing the ultimate in culinary excellence and creativity by using the finest ingredients sourced from around the world
  • The Asian-accented Indochine
  • Italian-themed poolside restaurant, Spaccanapoli, which serves homemade Italian pizzas throughout the day
  • With the addition of these new culinary venues, Silver Muse guests have a choice of eight onboard restaurants and the freedom to dine on “anything, anywhere, at any time” on the ship.

    Silver Muse is also home to the unique Zàgara Beauty Spa, which offers a relaxing sanctuary while transporting guests on a journey of the five senses tailored to their individual needs and preferences.

    Prince Albert II of Monaco, among the guests at the christening ceremony, said: “I would like to extend a warm welcome to Silver Muse, its crew and passengers. We share with Silversea common values and principles surrounding responsible environmental practices, and the development of sustainable business activities. The preservation of the oceans is a crucial priority for future generations.”

    Manfredi Lefebvre d’Ovidio said: “The close ties between Silversea and the Principality of Monaco reflect not only our commitment to this beautiful region but also to the history and values to which we adhere.

    “Silversea is an Italian, family-owned business, yet our heart will always be shared with the Principality as we continue to move forward. As the home of Silversea, Monaco was always the natural choice for the christening of our new flagship, Silver Muse, and it is with great pleasure that we can share this milestone with both the residents and guests of the Principality.”

    Roberto Martinoli, CEO of Silversea Cruises, added: “As we continue to invest in our entire fleet, Silver Muse offers guests a taste of what is to come. Silver Muse represents an evolution of the Silversea hallmarks that set the company apart from the competition. With more open-air spaces and state-of-the-art facilities on board, we are positive that both new and returning guests will enjoy unforgettable memories.”
