Silversea Cruises has ordered a third Muse-class ship from Fincantieri, which will be delivered in the fourth quarter of 2021.

To be named Silver Dawn, the new €320 million (US$382 million) vessel will be a sister ship to Silversea’s flagship, Silver Muse, which launched in April 2017 and Silver Moon, which will be delivered by Fincantieri in 2020. This will bring the Silversea fleet up to 11 ships.

Silver Dawn will boast the same spacious all-suite accommodation, luxury dining venues and other onboard amenities that are offered onboard Silver Muse. The ship will have capacity for 596 passengers.

“Silver Dawn will bear the same hallmarks of quality that guests currently enjoy on our six-star ships. We look forward to welcoming guests aboard in November 2021,” said Manfredi Lefebvre d’Ovidio, Silversea’s chairman. “It was my father’s dream to grow Silversea to at least a 12-ship fleet; today, we are one step closer to fulfilling his vision.”

Like her sister ships, Silver Dawn is likely to be built to Green Star 3 Design standards, which will require her to be designed, built and equipped in such as way as to prevent air and water pollution.

“It is a great satisfaction for our group to see an ambitious project like Silver Muse establish itself on the market and get the highest appreciation from an exclusive and demanding customer like Silversea, that today confirms his trust in us,” said Giuseppe Bono, CEO of Fincantieri. “Thanks to this partnership, based on the quality of the product, our leadership position in the cruise sector is further strengthened, not only from a technological point of view, but also for the commercial ability to find the best agreement with the shipowner.”
