The launching ceremony of the 2nd of 3 new ultra-luxury cruise ships which Fincantieri is building for Silversea, Silver Moon, took place on Thursday, August 29, at the Ancona shipyard.

The liner will enter the ship owner’s fleet in 2020 and is a sister to the Silver Muse, the Silver Dawn, follows for the luxury brand in 2021, according to the cruise ship order book. Silversea holds an option for a fourth sister that, if exercised, would arrive in 2023.

At 40,700 gross tons and with a capacity to accommodate 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 liner 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 onboard experience, while satisfying the uncompromising requirements for comfort, service, and quality of the world’s most discerning travelers.

Among the notations of the ship, the “Green star 3 Design” stands out, according to a statement. It is assigned to vessels 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.
