Silversea Cruises announced the start of construction of Silver Muse last Friday (July 24) at Fincantieri's Sestri Ponente shipyard in Genoa, with the cutting of first steel. 

Manfredi Lefebvre d'Ovidio, Silversea's chairman, co-hosted the event with the CEO of the Italian shipbuilder, Giuseppe Bono.

Set to debut in 2017 spring, the new flagship of Silversea will maintain line's commitment to operating ships of the highest quality in the ultra-luxury cruise segment. The steel cutting for Silver Muse followed extensive planning. New concepts were developed to enhance onboard experience. Silver Muse is designed to be a more intimate, smaller ship, with less than 300 suites.

Giuseppe Bono shared they were very pleased to partner with Silversea once again as the line had shown remarkable ability to achieve high results in the market. He added that the project offered an opportunity to work out creative solutions and set the newest standards for shipbuilding in ultra-luxury segment.

Lefebvre d'Ovidio added that Silver Muse would be an intimate vessel, with just the right proportions: the only 40,700-ton ship with less than 300 suites launched in the ultra-luxury cruise market. Silversea's chairman shared the Muse would provide their passengers with the highest number of restaurants and an outstanding dining experience, while ensuring the same level of service they were famous for. Silver Muse would also bring the world to line's guests, "featuring new, carefully curated itineraries that will allow them to visit the most exceptional destinations in the utmost elegance at sea".
