Silversea Cruises made its return to global operations late last week with the maiden voyage of its new flagship, Silver Moon, from Athens (Piraeus). The launch of Silver Moon also represents the unveiling of S.A.L.T., the cruise line’s new culinary program.
Additionally, the inaugural sailing of Silversea’s new expeditionary vessel, Silver Origin, departed from San Cristobal in the Galapagos on Saturday 19 June. Silversea’s first destination-specific ship is sailing with all-new itineraries in the archipelago.
“With the maiden voyages of these two beautiful ships, we welcome guests to rediscover exotic destinations, cultures, and cuisines in our trademark level of comfort, with impeccable personalised service,” says Silversea’s President and CEO Roberto Martinoli.
“These initial sailings will transport guests to our most sought-after destinations in the Greek Isles and the Galapagos Archipelago, and we look forward to the further expansion of our offering in July with resumed service to Alaska on Silver Muse and Iceland on Silver Shadow. I look forward to personally welcoming our guests aboard Silver Moon in Greece,” Martinoli added.
Sailing from Piraeus, Silver Moon will cruise 10-day itineraries in the Greek Isles. The debut of Silversea’s pioneering culinary program Sea and Land Taste, or S.A.L.T., invites guests to enjoy immersive culinary experiences for a taste of authentic cultures and traditions of each visited region.
Building on Silversea’s global healthy return to service, Silver Muse will set sail to Alaska from 29 July, while Silver Shadow will sail on circumnavigations of Iceland from 30 July.
Silversea is continuing to work closely with relevant government bodies and health authorities to maintain a multi-layered set of science-backed protocols to help ensure the health and safety of its guests, crew, and visited communities.
