Construction Begins On Silversea's Newest Ship Silver Muse
Silversea Cruises today celebrated the milestone keel laying ceremony of its newest ship, Silver Muse at the Fincantieri Shipyard in Genoa, Italy.
The ceremony is a longstanding maritime tradition celebrating the start of a ship’s construction. The action of welding a coin into the keel of the ship is said to bring good luck during the build and to the captain and crew during her later life. Silversea has taken this one step further by welding eight coins into the keel of Silver Muse. Each coin represents one of the seven continents that Silversea ships sail to, along with a specially designed commemorative Silver Muse coin.
The coins are:
- A South African Rand
- An Australian dollar
- A US half dollar
- A Brazilian Real
- An Italian Euro
- A Singapore dollar
- A commemorative Antarctica trust coin
- A specially designed Silversea Silver Muse commemorative coin
The ceremony was attended by Silversea CEO, Enzo Visone and Fincantieri Shipyard Director, Raffaele Davassi.
From April 2017 Silver Muse will sail throughout Europe, Canada, North and South America as well as the Caribbean, taking in over 130 destinations in 34 countries. She will offer 298 suites onboard which can accommodate up to 596 guests, a varied selection of dining options and some impressive shoreside excursions.
Silver Muse is destined to showcase the highest expression of Silversea excellence when she launches in 2017.
