“In welcoming the beautiful Silver Dawn as the 10th ship in our fleet, we have reached a huge milestone on our mission to take our guests deep into the world in luxury,” said Roberto Martinoli, President & CEO, Silversea Cruises.

“As well as the tireless efforts of the teams at Fincantieri and Silversea Cruises, I would like to recognise the great contribution of the Royal Caribbean Group. I am grateful for the Group’s continued support, which has proven invaluable once again. Silver Dawn represents an evolution of luxury cruise travel; she builds on the innovations of her sister ships, Silver Moon and Silver Muse, with Otium – our pioneering new wellness program. With Silver Dawn, we affirm our position as the leader in ultra-luxury cruising. I look forward to welcoming our guests aboard Silver Dawn from spring 2022.”

Fincantieri’s Matarazzo said; “In spite of the pandemic, we have been able to keep all deliveries in line with the contractual dates. That’s why I am particularly pleased to celebrate the delivery of Silver Dawn, just a few months after the successful delivery of her sister vessel, Silver Moon. We have cooperated with Silversea for many years, realising a line of distinctive vessels, but we are already looking ahead to the new challenges we will have to face—ready for a new generation of cruise vessels.”

Silver Dawn is slated to enter service in mid-March 2022, with the ship’s inaugural commercial itinerary a 14-day transAtlantic voyage from Fort Lauderdale to Lisbon, departing on 18 March, currently waitlisted.
