Silver Nova™: A Pioneering Odyssey Begins Today marks an extraordinary leap in ultra-luxury seafaring as Silversea’s groundbreaking vessel, the Silver Nova™, embarks on its maiden journey. This innovative Nova-class ship, the jewel of Silversea’s fleet, has set sail from Venice, promising a seven-day panoramic tour through Europe’s mesmerizing Adriatic landscapes.
Silversea’s maiden voyage on the Silver Nova™ encompasses stunning destinations like Piran in Slovenia and the Croatian jewels of Zadar, Dubrovnik, Split, and Rovinj. Not to be missed is the breathtaking allure of Kotor, Montenegro.
Statistically, Silver Nova™ stands out in the world of cruise travel. Not only is she Silversea’s 12th marvel, she also proudly becomes the 64th member of the global fleet of the Royal Caribbean Group®.
In a strategic move, before this monumental departure, eminent executives from both Royal Caribbean Group and Silversea arranged an exclusive architectural showcase, inviting industry stalwarts and media luminaries for an intimate preview.
Jason Liberty, the visionary president and CEO of the Royal Caribbean Group, confidently proclaims, “Silver Nova™ is redefining ultra-luxury cruising. Her avant-garde design amalgamated with sustainable operations vividly portrays our dedication to offering world-class, eco-conscious vacation experiences.”
Echoing this sentiment, Silversea Cruises’ President, Barbara Muckermann, emotionally reflects on the ship’s launch. “The asymmetric design of Silver Nova™ promises guests a continuous rendezvous with their destinations. With her expansive spaces and plethora of amenities, she amplifies the guest experience. Our gratitude extends to all involved parties, notably the indispensable Royal Caribbean Group Newbuild team and Silver Nova’s impeccable crew led by Captain Mino Pontillo.”
A Deep Dive into Silver Nova’s™ Magnificence.
What truly sets Silver Nova™ apart is her groundbreaking design prioritizing expansive views, achieved by an astonishing utilization of approximately 4,000m2 of glass. This concept is best illustrated by her pool deck that gracefully overhangs the water and her novel outdoor venues – the ethereal Dusk Bar and the Marquee.
Silver Nova’s™ commitment to unparalleled luxury and comfort is evident in her statistics: A stellar space-to-guest ratio of 75 GRT-per-guest—a 1:1.3 crew-to-guest ratio, complete with butlers for every suite. The ship lavishly accommodates up to 728 guests, offering them 13 distinct suite categories, with the pièce de résistance being the monumental 123m2 Otium Suite.
For the gastronomy enthusiast, the Silver Nova™ delivers a culinary odyssey. The Sea and Land Taste (S.A.L.T.) program ensures guests indulge in various flavours, immersive shore excursions, educational food lectures, and hands-on cooking adventures.
After her inaugural voyage, the Silver Nova™ will elegantly cruise the Mediterranean’s azure waters, ultimately heading west to the Caribbean and South America. Come January 2024, voyagers can indulge in an epic 71-day Grand Voyage across South America.
On the horizon, summer 2024 anticipates the launch of Silver Nova’s™ exquisite sister, the Silver Ray℠. The future of ultra-luxury sea travel gleams brighter than ever.
