Silver Nova is scheduled to debut in August 2023, and the new 728-passenger luxury ship will feature a range of bars, lounges, and restaurants that cruisers will love. This is an enhanced level of travel -- even for a cruise line long known for its spectacular brand or intimate and immersive all-inclusive experiences.
Silver Nova will be one of the most environmentally conscious ships built, and it will offer travelers the next iteration of Silversea's popular style of luxury cruising as one of the world's most spacious ships.
It offers 10 bars and lounges, eight restaurants and an array of enticing public venues. Silversea will enhance Silver Nova with a new design approach -- an asymmetrical design, as well as a horizontal layout that heightens the ship's sense of spaciousness and provides a natural flow between venues on entire decks.
"In addition to her pioneering sustainability credentials, Silver Nova will unlock a new luxury experience for our guests, offering an industry-leading variety of bars, lounges and restaurants with an entirely new design approach for Silversea," said Barbara Muckermann, president and CEO of Silversea. "Silver Nova represents a milestone in our strategy to build the perfect ship for every itinerary, with her array of venues enhancing the guest experience to a new level."
