The launching ceremony of 'Silver Moon', the second of three new ultra-luxury cruise ships that Fincantieri is building for Silversea Cruises, has taken place at the Ancona yard.

The vessel will enter the ship owner’s fleet in 2020. Silver Moon will be a sister ship of Silver Muse (pictured), which took to the sea in 2017, and of Silver Dawn due for delivery in 2021. At 40,700gt and with a capacity for 596 passengers on board, she will maintain the small-ship intimacy and spacious all-suite accommodations which are hallmarks of the Silversea experience.

The new build will be the ninth ship in Silversea’s fleet. Once operating, she will significantly raise the bar in the ultra-luxury segment with a wealth of enhancements to the on board experience, while satisfying the uncompromising requirements for comfort, service, and quality of the most discerning travellers.

Among the notations of the ship, the 'Green star 3 Design' stands out. It is assigned to units that are designed, built and equipped in order to prevent air and water pollution. Furthermore, the “COMF-NOISE A PAX” and “COMF-NOISE B CREW” are assigned on the basis of the noise levels measured on the ship.
