Silver Dawn is the 10th ship in the luxury line’s fleet. Silversea accepted delivery of Silver Origin and Silver Moon last year. The expected delivery of Dawn in November demonstrated the resilience of the Royal Caribbean Group brand, the company announced.

The 40,700 GT ship has max passenger capacity 691 (plus 411 staff-crew), 11 decks (8 with cabins) and 288 staterooms (all oceanview suites, 96% with step-out balconies).

The newbuild will boast a crew-to-passenger ratio of 1:1.45.
