Silversea Cruises new ship 'Silver Dawn', 10th in the company's 'ultra luxury' fleet, was recently floated out at the Fincantieri shipyard in Ancona, Italy,

The third ship in the Muse-class series, and part of a long-term plan to grow and enhance the cruise line’s fleet, Silver Dawn, which is now being completed at the outfitting berth, will be a sistership to Silversea’s Silver Muse, built in the Fincantieri shipyard of Sestri Ponente (Genoa) in 2017, and Silver Moon, which was delivered in Ancona in October 2020.

Accommodating 596 guests in 298 ocean-view suites and with a crew-to-guest ratio of 1:1.45, Silver Dawn will maintain Silversea’s small-ship intimacy and spacious accommodation.

Roberto Martinoli, President and CEO of Silversea Cruises, said: “We proudly celebrate this major milestone in the build of our beautiful new Silver Dawn. 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 10th ship in our fleet. We look forward to revealing these in the coming months”.

Luigi Matarazzo, GM Merchant Ships Division, Fincantieri, said: “Based on the very successful design of Silver Muse, Silver Dawn is the fourth ship we will have built for Silversea. For a shipbuilder there can be no better acknowledgement than the one of a demanding and prestigious owner who welcomes innovation with enthusiasm. We are therefore extremely proud to celebrate the launch of this ship. She consolidates the technological and management leadership of our group which takes on even greater value in the very challenging situation we are experiencing.”
