Silver Ray Review

Review of Silver Ray

The 2024-built MS Silver Ray cruise ship is the second in a series of two (NOVA-class/initially EVOLUTION-class) ultra-luxury vessels constructed by Meyer Werft and assembled at its shipbuilding yard in Papenburg (Germany Lower Saxony). The first EVOLUTION ship (Silver Nova) was launched in 2022 and inaugurated in 2023 (August).

Silver Ray is currently under construction and planned for completion and inauguration in 2024 June.

The vessel (IMO number 9886225) will be Bahamas-flagged (MMSI tba) and registered in Nassau.

Both EVOLUTION-class ships (Nova and Ray) are part of the Silversea Expeditions fleet.

Silver Ray is Silversea's 13th vessel.

History - construction and ownership

Silversea Cruises is a Monaco-based privately-owned cruise company and top-luxury travel brand. It was established in 1994 as joint venture of V-Ships Monaco (fka Vlasov Group) and Lefebvre Family of Rome Italy. In 2018, RCCL-Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd acquired 2/3rd of the company. Silversea now has a fleet of smaller-sized boutique vessels with passenger capacity between 100-700. The company's business model is to operate yacht-like vessels in the industry's ultra-luxury-all-suite ship category. Silversea's all-inclusive fares include beverages (also selected wines), gratuities (none are allowed), travel insurance, port charges, one or more shore excursions (per voyage).

Silver Ray cruise ship (Silversea)

Despite having ice-strengthened hulls, both EVOLUTION-Class units (Nova and Ray) are not expedition ships, but rather an enhanced version of Silversea's newest mega-yachts Silver Muse (2017), Silver Moon (2021), Silver Dawn (2022). The new class units are designed with max passenger capacity 728 (in addition to 560 crew/staff) and GT (gross tonnage/volume) 54700 tons.

Silver Ray is one of the industry's most spacious ships, featuring the Silversea fleet's highest space-to-passenger ratio 75 (enclosed space per passenger / ft3 to GT) and crew-to-passenger ratio 1:1,3.

Ship technology

On October 8, 2018, RCG-Royal Caribbean Group (shipowner and Silversea's parent company) announced shipbuilding agreements for 3 new boats for Silversea. The MoU (with Meyer Werft Germany) included two new-design (EVOLUTION Class) ships with first delivery planned for 2022. The 3rd contract was signed with Shipyard De Hoop (Holland) for building Silver Origin (100-passenger ship for Silversea's Galapagos program previously served by Silver Galapagos/sold in December 2020). Silver Origin entered service in May 2021 (originally planned for March 2020). The shipbuilding contracts were signed by Manfredi Lefebvre d'Ovidio (Silversea's Executive Chairman), Richard Fain (RCG's Chairman and CEO) and Tim Meyer (Meyer Werft's Managing Director/for the EVOLUTION ships) and Patrick Janssens (Shipyard De Hoop's CEO/for Silver Origin).

In October 2021 was announced that the EVOLUTION-class units will be hybrid-powered, using three different power sources - main engines (dual-fuel, running on both ULSD/ultra-low-sulfur diesel and LNG/liquefied natural gas) as well as two alternative power sources - fuel cells (hydrogen-based technology, max capacity 4 MW per boat) plus batteries (power storage system). Another innovation is the MAGS (Micro Auto Gasification System) for reducing onboard dry waste volumes, which results in lower incineration/CO emissions. These new maritime technologies allow ~40% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions in comparison to Silversea's previous ship class (Muse-Moon-Dawn).

As the boats are shoreside-power ready, while berthed in ports they can connect to the town's power grid (for the electricity needed for onboard operations) instead of running their own diesel generators.

Silversea's EVOLUTION ships are also designed to have an EEDI (Energy Efficiency Design Index for new ships) IMO rating of approx 1/4 better than IMO's (International Maritime Organization's) current requirements for this GT-tonnage. The EEDI index estimates the CO2 volume (grams of carbon dioxide) per tonne-mile, making it kinda a sustainable ("environmental cost") ratio.

Silver Ray Wiki

The vessel's construction (hull/yard number 720) officially started on November 23, 2022, with the steel-cutting ceremony held at Meyer Werft's yard in Papenburg Germany. The special event was attended by Roberto Martinoli (Silversea's President and CEO) and Jan Meyer (Meyer Werft's Managing Director). The vessel's physical construction/assembly started on March 23, 2023, with the keel-laying/coin ceremony at Meyer Werft Papenburg. The event was attended by Barbara Muckermann (Silversea's President and CEO) and Jan Meyer.

The ship's name (Silver Ray) was officially announced in July 2022, when Silversea unveiled voyage collection 2024-2025 (March 2024 through May 2025). The brochure reviewed the fleet deployment and listed 341 voyages visiting 695 destinations in 120 countries.

The Silversea ship's namesake is the 1999-built Vehicles Carrier "Silver Ray" (IMO 9181376) owned by LCI Shipholdings Inc (New Orleans Louisiana-based company specializing in cargo transportation services).

The ship is currently scheduled to be floated out from drydock (Meyer Werft's construction dock) on February 25, 2024, at ~11:30 am (~10:30 UTC). After leaving the construction hall, the vessel will be docked at the shipyard's outfitting pier where will be also installed the LNG bunker mast and the funnel/smokestacks. On Feb 25th will be also conducted tests of the bow thrusters and both stabilizers. Next stages of the construction will include interior works followed by nautical and technical trials in the North Sea and the delivery to Silversea.

Silver Ray is one of Silversea's four boats serving the brand's culinary program "S.A.L.T." (2019-launched/"Sea And Land Taste") - together with the fleetmates Nova, Moon, and Dawn.

Silver Ray's powerplant is integrated with currently the largest fuel cell system installed on a cruise ship (power output 4 MV), allowing the vessel to run completely on fuel cell-generated electricity while in port - without using its combustion engines. The methanol-powered fuel cell system was developed by Freudenberg Fuel Cell e-Power Systems GmbH, which is one of Meyer Group's strategic partners for new technology developments, and a subsidiary of Freudenberg Group (1849-founded, Weinheim-based, family-owned group of technology and production companies specializing in sectors like household products, textiles, building materials, auto parts, telecommunications).

For additional fuel savings, the innovative MAGS (Micro Auto Gasification System by Terragon Technologies) converts onboard waste (thermally breaks down all hydrocarbons in waste) and transforms them into ~5% of biochar (lightweight black residue) and thermal energy.

Nova and Ray are Silversea's first vessels with a horizontal layout and an asymmetrical/open design that allows all public spaces and staterooms to span the ship's entire length and receive natural light.
