SYDNEY, April 19, 2017 — Silver Muse, the new ultra-luxury cruise ship built by Fincantieri for Silversea Cruises, was presented yesterday at Fincantieri’s shipyard in Sestri Ponente, Genoa.
At 40,700 gross tons and the capacity to accommodate 596 passengers on board, Silver Muse represents an evolution of Silver Spirit, delivered in 2009 by Fincantieri in Ancona, and redefines the ultra-luxury ocean travel experience, while maintaining the small-ship intimacy and spacious all-suite accommodations which are hallmarks of the Silversea experience.
The new build expands Silversea’s fleet to nine ships. Silver Muse will offer guests the highest number of large suites (Silver, Royal, Grand and Owner’s) in the fleet, and the greatest number of connecting suites for families and friends. Silver Muse offers a welcoming blend of spaciousness, luxury, and comfort, where guests can feel immediately at home. In addition, she will offer more restaurants than any other ultra-luxury ship – eight venues – offering the finest and widest bespoke culinary experience at sea.
ON BOARD UNIQUE FEATURES
Arts Café is one of several new public spaces on Silver Muse, which launches next month. The bespoke library will be housed within Silver Muse’s all new Arts Café, nestled cosily on deck 8. Hosting varied and constantly evolving exhibitions, the Arts Café will also showcase paintings and sculptures from a range of artisans from around the world.
A place for relaxation and inspiration by day, the distinctively designed Arts Café will turn into a lively lounge come evening. The Arts Café is also a great venue to enjoy a bite to eat or a tipple, with a café and deli-bar offering daytime cuisine and mouth-watering cocktails as the sun sets.
Housed within Arts Café, the bespoke library will be collaborating with literary institution Heywood Hill, a renown bookstore with 80-year history.
Over Heywood Hill’s illustrious 80-year history, the London-based bookshop has become renowned for curating collections of new, old, and antiquarian books for private libraries. Marked by old-fashioned courtesy and humour, Heywood Hill’s literary services have been awarded the Royal Warrant by Her Majesty the Queen, among other accolades. Heywood Hill will also select books to be placed in some of Silver Muse’s top suites.

At the fitness center, guests can immerse themselves in athletic regimens with a touch of art. The theme of art in motion is a carried through as moving art is streamed during relaxation and cardiovascular classes, while state-of-the-art Technogym and free weights provide guests with an array of equipment for workouts. Personal trainers are on hand for individual sessions, and training with bespoke premium programs are also available on request.
