- 2020 - delayed delivery (due to Coronavirus), 6 cancelled inaugural cruises
|May 2020||Structural and Technical Issues|
in mid-May 2020, Silversea Cruises announced that due to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic (shipbuilding yard closure), the vessel's delivery from Fincantieri's Sestri Ponente (near Genoa, Italy) will be delayed. The delay was due to shipbuilding yard's closure, as well as the EU's country lockdowns (border closures) which suspended vessel's outfitting as most of the ordered customized items (furniture, fixtures, artworks) became stuck at customs for 3+ months.
As result of the delayed delivery, 6 itineraries were cancelled and Silver Moon's Inaugural Cruise was rescheduled from August 6 to October 2. Next table shows the originally planned maiden voyage (11-day Adriatic and Mediterranean itinerary) as dates and port times. Prices started from ~USD 10600 per person.
Due to the closure of Shipyard De Hoop BV (in Lobith, Holland) was also delayed the delivery of the fleetmate Silver Origin.
The next 5 tables show the 5 other cancelled maiden voyages of Silver Moon in the Western Mediterranean Sea.
