Silversea's new ship, Silver Moon, touched water for the first time at Fincantieri Shipyard in Ancona, Italy. The float out was marked by a celebratory event and a traditional coin ceremony, held in the presence of representatives from Silversea and Fincantieri, and other guests. Fincantieri will now begin work on Silver Moon's interior, preparing her to join Silversea's fleet.
Silver Moon will feature many new concepts. One example is S.A.L.T. (Sea and Land Taste)?, a new culinary program that will unlock immersive culinary experiences for guests. Adapting with sailed destinations, S.A.L.T. will elevate the role of food as a means to travel deeper into a destination, by showcasing entire ecosystems around the culinary cultures of the world. In the S.A.L.T. Kitchen, the S.A.L.T. Lab, and the S.A.L.T. Bar, guests will develop an appreciation for regional ingredients and culinary customs, before venturing ashore under the guidance of experts to experience food and drink cultures first-hand.
While preserving the design of Silversea's Silver Muse, many of Silver Moon's public spaces will be enhanced: the Dolce Vita lounge, the Connoisseur's Corner, the Pool Deck, and the Spa and Fitness Centre will each undergo comprehensive redesigns. Silver Moon's Kaiseki restaurant will also be reimagined, as well as the ship's La Dame restaurant, which will incorporate Lalique crystal panels.
Suites are still available on Silver Moon's maiden voyage between Trieste and Rome (Civitavecchia), departing August 6, 2020. Silver Moon will spend her inaugural season in the Mediterranean, before crossing to the Americas in November. After cruising destinations in Central America and the Caribbean – including Barbados, Antigua, and Puerto Rico – Silver Moon will complete a circumnavigation of South America, visiting 37 destinations in 20 countries between January 7 and March 17, 2021.
