Ultra-luxury cruise line Silversea Cruises has taken delivery of its new ship Silver Dawn at the Fincantieri shipyard in Ancona, Italy, the third ship to join Silversea’s fleet since the start of 2020.

Executives from Silversea Cruises and Fincantieri attended an intimate delivery ceremony to welcome the 10th ship to the cruise line’s fleet.

Following a video screening of the official coin and flag ceremonies, Roberto Martinoli, Silversea’s President and CEO, penned his signature to officially take delivery of Silver Dawn.

Richard D. Fain, Chairman and CEO, Royal Caribbean Group and Jason Liberty, Executive Vice President and CFO, Royal Caribbean Group each connected via video feed to deliver a speech.

Luigi Matarazzo, General Manager of Fincantieri’s Merchant Ships Division, was also in attendance.

“In welcoming the beautiful Silver Dawn as the 10th ship in our fleet, we have reached a huge milestone on our mission to take our guests deep into the world in luxury,” says Roberto Martinoli, President & CEO, Silversea Cruises. 

Mr Martolini also said that Silver Dawn represents an evolution of luxury cruise travel while recognizing the great contribution of the Royal Caribbean Group. “I am grateful for the Group’s continued support, which has proven invaluable once again,” he added.

Silver Dawn, a sister ship to Silver Moon and Silver Dawn, accommodates just 596 guests in 298 ocean-view suites, 96% of which have a private veranda and has a crew-to-guest ratio of 1:1.45.

The ship will also debut an onboard wellness programme, ‘Otium’, which takes inspiration from the leisurely nature of the ancient Roman lifestyle. Otium was a period of time dedicated to leisure, in which people bathed, conversed, sung, theorised, drank, ate, and relaxed.
