The Royal Caribbean-owned premium company Silversea revealed that its 11th ship - Silver Nova, will boast a new asymmetrical design, additional outdoor venues, and a reimagined pool area when she debuts in 2023.
The outward-facing and horseshoe-shaped pool area is expected to occupy a space on Nova's starboard side, allowing for unobstructed views. The main swimming pool is the fleet's biggest (sized 130 m2 / 1400 ft2), featuring a new layout, wider entrance steps, and more shallow waters for passengers to sit. A pool bar is situated on deck 10, while deck 11 forms an amphitheater-shaped structure above with a new infinity-edge whirlpool - The Cliff Whirlpool - overlooking the port side of the ship.
Two new food and beverage venues will be introduced on deck 10. The Marquee is an alfresco dining venue situated aft of the ship on the port side. The new spot incorporates The Grill and Spaccanapoli, a couple of Silversea’s signature venues that offer a ‘hot rocks’ culinary concept and pizza. The Marquee serves casual fare during the day and offers dinner during the night.
The 2nd of the two new food & drinks venues, The Dusk Bar, will be an open-air sky bar for up to 70 guests, with 270-degree panoramic views from the stern of the ship.
The signature for Silversea restaurants (on decks 3 & 4) are enlarged and redesigned for the newbuild. The largest of the venues - La Terrazza, has a total of 340 seats and features a new color palette, floor-ceiling windows, an expanded outdoor terrace. The 270-guest restaurant Atlantide boasts a new interior design, while the French restaurant La Dame is more spacious with a capacity of 70 diners. Sushi restaurant Kaiseki retains its existing design.
Silver Nova will become the first cruise ship to make use of hybrid technology utilizing fuel cells, which Silversea Cruises claims will emit zero emissions while in port.
Silver Nova has 11 decks (9 are passenger-accessible), max passenger capacity 728 (364 staterooms in 13 suite categories) and is served by 556 staff/crew.
