Introducing Silver Muse, the World’s Newest Luxury Liner
Silversea Cruises’ newest ship, Silver Muse wowed guests on her inaugural cruise this month. Accommodating 596 passengers, she is Silversea’s ninth ship and largest vessel.
If you’ve sailed on Silver Spirit, you’ll recognize the similarities. In addition to a slightly increased passenger capacity, the biggest difference is that there are two separated themed areas of the main dining room. These are Atlantide, a steak and seafood option along with Indochine, for pan-Asian dining.
Rounding out the dining options are familiar restaurants and ones new to the line. There is La Terrazza, a buffet by day and Italian cuisine at night. La Dame offers a French menu along the lines of Le Champagne on some of Silversea’s other ships and Kaiseki, which is Silver Spirit’s Seishin counterpart. More casual eateries include Spaccanapoli serving Neapolitan pizza on the pool deck and the daytime gourmet salad and burger bar becomes Hot Rocks which features guests participating in creating their meal using lava rock cooking. Silver Note entertains your senses with small plate international tapas-style dishes to the sounds of jazz and blues.
Silversea is promoting on Silver Muse a dining concept that has been fine-tuned on other ships for the past year. Diners have an option of ordering from a limited menu 24/7 for meals to be delivered and eaten in any public venue.
Muse’s contemporary interior design is “European luxury” which leans toward an unassuming upscale experience using subtle colors. The palate is primarily beige to brown with accents in other complimentary colors. Silversea was looking for “elegant understatement, refined, non-opulent” per Silversea chairman, Manfredi Lefebvre.
Water features include a long swimming pool and a secluded hot tub in the aft of the same deck which offers a scenic view.
Unlike the massive theaters of large liners, Muse offers a one-story Venetian Lounge theater where guests can enjoy performances. Various exhibits of Italian art and culture will be featured in Silversea’s newest concept, the Arts Café unique to this ship.
This all-suite ship offers spacious and beautifully designed one and two-bedroom accommodations from the 387-square-foot Superior Veranda Suite to two 1,970-square-foot Grand Suites. If someone in your party requires accessible accommodations, Silver Muse has an accessible Silver Suite on deck 9 and three accessible non-balcony suites on deck 4.
Silversea fills its claim of being “all-inclusive ultra-luxury.” Guests tend to be well-traveled and down-to-earth. Those who are well-off tend to not flaunt it. Those who aren’t as well off tend to budget for special upscale experiences in a smaller, more intimate ships with the added benefit of being able to sail into smaller ports. Typical are people who like to try new things and learn more about the places they have heard and read about.
Silversea also appeals to those who don’t want to be hassled with price tags and signing tabs. “All-inclusive” on Silver Muse means that all your beverages (from soda to champagne) are included as well as many shore excursion options, butler service, most restaurants, room service, WiFi and gratuities. They even include roundtrip transportation between the pier and center of town for those who prefer to tour on their own.
