Silver Dawn, the new cruise vessel for luxury cruise line Silversea Cruises was floated out at Fincantieri shipyard in Ancona, Italy and will now begin its fitting out phase ahead of its planned delivery in November 2021
The third ship in the Muse-class series, and part of a long-term plan to grow and enhance the cruise line’s fleet, Silver Dawn is a sister ship to two other Fincantieri-built ships – Silver Muse and Silver Moon.
The vessel accommodates 596 guests in 298 ocean-view suites – 96% of which will have a private veranda – with a crew-to-guest ratio of 1:1.45. Fincantieri said the design will maintain the small-ship intimacy and spacious accommodation in keeping with previous Silversea designs.
Silversea Cruises president and chief executive Roberto Martinoli said “We proudly celebrate this major milestone in the build of Silver Dawn.”
“Our long-term collaboration with Fincantieri continues to push boundaries in the ultra-luxury cruise industry, while the ongoing support and expertise of the Royal Caribbean Group has been invaluable to the ship’s build. While Silver Dawn takes influence from Silver Muse and Silver Moon, our guests will benefit from many pioneering enhancements aboard the10th ship in our fleet. We look forward to revealing these in the coming months”.
Fincantieri general manager Merchant Ships Divison, Luigi Matarazzo said “For a shipbuilder, there can be no better acknowledgement than the one of a demanding and prestigious owner who welcomes innovation with enthusiasm. We are therefore extremely proud to celebrate the launch of this ship. It consolidates the technological and management leadership of our group which takes on even greater value in the very challenging situation we are experiencing.”
Silver Dawn is the 10th ship in the Royal Carribean-owned luxury liner’s fleet and the fourth ship built by Fincantieri for Silversea Cruises following Silver Muse, Silver Moon and Silver Origin.
