Silver Moon, the new ultra-luxury Silversea unit that will be able to accommodate 596 cruise passengers and will focus on elegance like the current flagship Silver Muse, will also make its debut in August, 2020 together with improvements and elements of innovation.
Silver Moon will make the maiden voyage from Trieste to Rome (Civitavecchia) between 6 and 17 August, 2020. There is already much demand, but suites are still available for those who want to be among the first to try the ship that will remain in the Mediterranean until November. And Taoticket will be able to provide valuable assistance to interested parties.
It will then cross the Atlantic Ocean to Fort Lauderdale and from there will sail to visit some Caribbean islands, such as Barbados, Antigua, Puerto Rico. Silver Moon will then continue to Central and South America, where guests will complete the circumnavigation of the continent with the Grand South America 2021 cruise by visiting 37 destinations in 20 countries between 7 January and 17 March 2021.
Among the innovations of Silver Moon, the culinary program Salt (Sea and Land Taste) with engaging gastronomic experiences, in which food becomes ambassador of a destination. Guests will get to know the regional ingredients and culinary habits of a region on board, then venture out on the ground, under the guidance of experts, to experience food and drink firsthand.
On deck 4 of Silver Moon, there is culinary discovery hub composed of three cult places: Salt Kitchen, one of the eight on-board restaurants, is the first large-scale regional restaurant on a luxury cruise ship to offer a constantly evolving menu and a regional wine list; Salt Lab will introduce local ingredients and craft techniques through seminars, tastings and demonstrations; the Salt bar offers a selection of regional wines, liqueurs and other destination beverages.
Also on deck 4, the Atlantide and Kaiseki restaurants will undergo a redesign. On board Silver Moon, Atlantide will be expanded to accommodate up to 230 guests. Kaiseki’s design will draw inspiration from the best sushi restaurants in the world and guests will see chefs preparing fresh sushi and sashimi in action.
In La Dame on deck 8, which is the signature French cuisine restaurant, guests will enjoy a brand new design on board and it will accommodate more than 50 guests. With sweeping views of the sea, it will also offer the opportunity to dine under the stars.
Silver Moon will have improved lounges and public spaces. At the center of the ship, on deck 5, a new layout for the Dolce Vita lounge with a bar in the center of the room: from a sophisticated bar during the day to a piano bar in the evening.
On deck 9 the Connoisseur’s Corner will incorporate a Winter Garden with a sheltered outdoor area.
The pool deck will be improved in the same pool and bar area, enlarged in U-shape with new seating. Silver Moon will also offer a wellness and fitness center redesigned in indoor and outdoor areas, including a large spa area, a relaxation area and a gym. Other interventions will include the Panorama Lounge, the Observation Library, the Venetian Lounge and the Casino.
The Silver Moon suites will have one of the highest space-guest relationships in the category, with dedicated butler service, indoor bar, in-room dining available 24 hours a day and various other luxury services.
“Silver Moon will raise the bar on extra-luxury travel, offering engaging experiences with a sense of luxury that I would call whispered,” says Barbara Muckermann, Silversea Chief Marketing Officer, “The ship will bring innovation to the sector, while maintaining the intimacy of small ships and spacious accommodations uniquely characterized by suites, in full respect of the distinctive features of the Silversea cruise experience. From the new pioneering Salt program to the range of public spaces, every aspect of the ship has been designed to further enrich our guests’ experiences.”
