Silver MuseSM to launch in April 2017 taking in many of Earth’s most magnificent landmarks, including 52 UNESCO World Heritage Sites during her inaugural season
Silversea today celebrates one year to go until the christening of its new flagship Silver Muse. To mark this milestone, commemorative events will take place tonight aboard all eight of Silversea’s ships around the world. From the Amalfi Coast, where Silver Wind inaugurates her Mediterranean season, to Jaco Island in East Timor, where Silver Discoverer explores the natural wonders of Northern Australia.
Guests will be invited to a special dinner showcasing culinary specialties that will be on board Silver Muse, including specially created dishes from all regions of the world.
Due for completion in April 2017, Silver Muse will showcase world-class locations to those who sail during her inaugural season. A remarkable 52 UNESCO World Heritage Sites feature in Silver Muse‘s 2017 itinerary, from ancient Greek temples through to historic Caribbean fortresses.
Launching from Monte Carlo, Silver Muse will spend the sublime European spring and summer months in and around the Mediterranean. Thirteen of her European ports of call boast UNESCO sites, including the Cinque Terre in Liguria, the Historic Centre of Rome, the Archaeological Site of Olympia, and the Tower of Belém in Lisbon.
Following her Mediterranean tour, Silver Muse will make her very first transatlantic crossing, with North American UNESCO highlights including the historic district of Old Québec in Canada and the iconic Statue of Liberty in New York City.
Even while she is on the move, Silver Muse‘s UNESCO adventures continue as she passes through the Panama Canal on October 18. Central Panama stretches out from the canal across three provinces and into two oceans, comprising everything from the lush mountains of the Cordillera Central to the beautiful beaches of the Pearl Islands in the Bahía de Panamá.
As Silver Muse reaches South America, World Heritage Sites in Valparaiso and Rio de Janeiro are certain to delight, with an intoxicating kaleidoscope of colour thrilling the senses with man-made and natural wonders.
Calling at 34 countries and over 130 ports in 2017 alone, Silver Muse will redefine ocean travel, enhancing the small-ship intimacy with spacious all-suite accommodations that are the hallmarks of the Silversea experience. The addition of Silver Muse will expand Silversea’s fleet to nine ships, once again significantly raising the bar in the ultra-luxury cruise market.
“We are incredibly proud to celebrate this wonderful milestone in the development of Silver Muse as we enter the final one-year-to-go countdown,” said Karen Christensen, Silversea’s General Manager & Director Sales / Marketing, Australasia. With eight restaurants, state-of-the-art technology and bespoke open-air public areas, guests on board Silver Muse are set to enjoy world-class levels of luxury as they explore some of Earth’s greatest treasures.”
Silversea has launched a dedicated brochure for Silver Muse featuring all itineraries of the inaugural season, along with new details on the ship’s eight exclusive restaurants, suites and innovative interior and exterior public areas.
