Silversea Cruises today took delivery of its newest ship - Silver Dawn, at Fincantieri's shipyard in Ancona Italy.
Executives from Silversea (brand owned by RCG-Royal Caribbean Group) and Fincantieri (Italian shipbuilder) attended the delivery ceremony to welcome the fleet's 10th boat. The ceremony was physically attended by Roberto Martinoli (Silversea) and Luigi Matarazzo (Fincantieri), and remotely/via video feeds by Richard Fain (RCG's Chairman and CEO) and Jason Liberty (RCG's Executive VP and CFO).
A testament to the strength of the global cruise industry, Dawn is Silversea's 3rd boat to join the fleet since 2020.
MS Silver Dawn is of the same design as the sisterships Silver Muse (2017), Silver Moon (2020) and another (still unnamed) vessel scheduled for delivery in 2023. When Dawn's shipbuilding order was placed, Silversea had a fleet of 10 vessels, with a planned 12-ship fleet.
The 600-passenger Silver Dawn is an all-suite, top-luxury cruise ship. The shipbuilding contract with Fincantieri was announced on May 14, 2018. The new vessels will be constructed at the Sestri Ponente shipyard (Genova Italy). Among the ship's certificates is the “Green Star 3 Design” assigned to vessels specifically designed and equipped with technologies that prevent pollution. Other IMO-issued certificates relate to the vessel's lower noise levels (comfort-noise) - "COMF NOISE A" (for passengers) and “COMF NOISE B" (for the crew).
