Silversea’s Silver Nova has embarked on her maiden voyage on August 14, departing Venice, Italy.
Sailing on a seven-day roundtrip voyage through the Adriatic, Silver Nova will call in Piran, Slovenia; Zadar, Dubrovnik, Split, and Rovinj in Croatia; and Kotor, Montenegro.
Silver Nova is Silversea’s 12th ship and the first to launch this year for Royal Caribbean Group, becoming the 64th ship in its global fleet.
According to the group, the ship is one of the most environmentally conscious ultra-luxury cruise ships ever built.
Jason Liberty, President and CEO, Royal Caribbean Group said: “Silver Nova revolutionizes ultra-luxury cruising and sets the new category standard.
“From her innovative horizontal design to her emphasis on sustainable operations, Silver Nova speaks to Royal Caribbean Group’s commitment to deliver the world’s best vacations, responsibly.”
Barbara Muckermann, President, Silversea Cruises said: “Benefiting from an innovative asymmetrical design, Silver Nova immerses guests into the destination at every turn — a strong expression of our brand mission.
“As one of the most spacious ships at sea, and with the broadest array of bars, lounges, and restaurants in ultra-luxury cruise travel, Silver Nova elevates the experience for our guests like never before.
Silver Nova’s innovative design prizes openness over symmetry and incorporates an unprecedented use of approximately 4,000m2 of glass.
Guests will be immersed in the destination from virtually all venues and suites, with far-reaching views at every turn.
Her reimagined pool deck, which overlooks the water on her starboard side, and all-new outdoor venues – the Dusk Bar and the Marquee – best exemplify her unique openness to the destination.
One of the most spacious cruise ships ever built, Silver Nova has a space-to-guest ratio of 75 GRT-per-guest, the highest in Silversea’s fleet.
She offers one of the most personalised levels of service at sea with a crew-to-guest ratio of 1:1.3, including butler service for all suites.
Silver Nova hosts up to 728 guests in 13 different suite categories – the largest variety of suites in Silversea’s history and among the most spacious accommodations of any cruise ship.
Every suite offers guests the use of a private veranda. The largest option is the new 123m2 Otium Suite, with floor-to-ceiling windows providing 270-degree views from the ship’s premium aft-corner position.
It also features a 40m2 balcony with its own whirlpool.
Following her maiden voyage, Silver Nova will spend the summer in the Mediterranean before heading to the Caribbean and South America in November.
On January 4, 2024, she will embark on the 71-day Grand Voyage South America, visiting 38 destinations in 18 countries.
Silver Nova’s sister ship, Silver Ray℠, is scheduled to launch in summer 2024.
