Silversea Cruises’ new ship Silver Dawn touched water for the first time during her float-out at the Fincantieri shipyard in Ancona, Italy late last week.
Silver Dawn will become the 10th ship in the leading ultra-luxury cruise line’s fleet. Her float-out heralds the commencement of the fitting-out phase for Silversea’s 10th ultra-luxury ship.
With the delivery of both Silver Origin and Silver Moon in 2020, and with the delivery of Silver Dawn scheduled for November 2021, Silversea Cruises – and the global cruise industry in general – continues to demonstrate great resilience.
“We proudly celebrate this major milestone in the build of our beautiful new Silver Dawn,” Silversea Cruises President and CEO Roberto Martinoli said.
“Our long-term collaboration with Fincantieri continues to push boundaries in the ultra-luxury cruise industry, while the ongoing support and expertise of the Royal Caribbean Group has been invaluable to the ship’s build.
“While Silver Dawn takes influence from our beloved ships Silver Muse and Silver Moon, our guests will benefit from many pioneering enhancements aboard the tenth ship in our fleet. We look forward to revealing these in the coming months.”
The third ship in the Muse-class series, and part of a long-term plan to grow and enhance the cruise line’s already luxurious fleet, Silver Dawn will be a sistership to Silversea’s Silver Muse, built in the Fincantieri shipyard of Sestri Ponente (Genoa) in April 2017, and Silver Moon, which was delivered in Ancona in October 2020.
Silver Dawn accommodates 596 guests in 298 ocean-view suites, 96% of which will have a private veranda. It will have a crew-to-guest ratio of 1:1.45, maintain the small-ship intimacy and spacious accommodation which are the hallmarks of the Silversea experience.
She will offer guests many exciting enhancements when compared to Silver Muse and Silver Moon, which will be unveiled in due course.
The maiden voyage of Silver Dawn is currently slated for 9 November 2021 – a 10-day Mediterranean voyage from Barcelona to Lisbon, visiting 9 ports including Valencia, Malaga. Casablanca and Madeira.
