Silversea Cruises announces new flagship, Silver Muse, arriving in 2017
Silversea Cruises is to build a new 40,000-ton ultra-luxury flagship, the Silver Muse, for delivery in the spring of 2017.
The new ship, being built by Fincantieri to accommodate 596 guests, represents an evolution of the Silver Spirit enhancing the small-ship intimacy and spacious all-suite accommodations that are the hallmarks of the Silversea experience.

The addition of the Silver Muse will expand Silversea’s fleet to nine ships, and, it says, will “once again significantly raise the bar in the luxury cruise market 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”.
“We have always had a special relationship with Fincantieri, since my father ordered from them the first cruise vessels for Sitmar Cruises in 1987,” said Manfredi Lefebvre d’Ovidio, chairman of Silversea. “Both companies have a clear understanding of what today’s affluent traveller seeks, and each approaches the market with originality, creativity, and quality. “
According to Enzo Visone, Silversea’s CEO: “With enhanced design specifications and enriched content, the Silver Muse will continue to build on the sophistication, innovative style and ground-breaking concepts for which Silversea ships are renowned. This ship contributes to our ambitious growth plans that will ensure our continued leadership in ultra-luxury cruising.”
“We’re very pleased to once again partner with Silversea,” commented Giuseppe Bono, CEO of Fincantieri. “Silversea has shown remarkable dynamism and ability to achieve important results in this market. This project offers us the opportunity to develop creative solutions and set new standards for shipbuilding in the ultra-luxury segment, a segment in which Fincantieri has won every new order on the market in the past year.”
