- 2020 - delayed delivery (due to Coronavirus), 10 cancelled inaugural cruises
|December 2020||Other Incidents|
In early-December 2020, Silverseas cancelled all scheduled for Silver Moon itineraries through March 2021. The new ship's Inaugural Cruise was rescheduled for April 1 (12-day Mediterranean itinerary from Barcelona to Piraeus-Athens).
|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. Eventually, the new ship's entire 2020 program was cancelled and the maiden voyage rescheduled for January 7, 2021.
Due to the closure of Shipyard De Hoop BV (in Lobith, Holland) was also delayed the delivery of the fleetmate Silver Origin.
