Preferred Travel of Naples’ Karen Berger and Donna Christensen were invited on the christening voyage of the Silversea’s Silver Muse cruise ship. The exclusive invitation was extended to the travel advisors due to their excellent Silversea partnership and support.
Silver Muse, the new ultra-luxury cruise ship built by Fincantieri for Silversea Cruises, was presented on April 3 at Fincantieri’s shipyard in Genoa Sestri Ponente, Italy.
“I was very impressed with the myriad of choices of small and elegant restaurants, and the ship’s beautiful attention to detail,” says Berger. “It was an honor to represent Preferred Travel and experience Silversea’s luxury and personalized service,” added Christensen.
Guests attending the ceremony included His Eminence Cardinal Angelo Bagnasco, Archbishop of Genoa, who blessed the ship, Giovanni Toti, Governor of Liguria, Manfredi Lefebvre d’Ovidio, the Chairman of Silversea Cruises, and Giuseppe Bono, CEO of Fincantieri.
The new build expands Silversea’s fleet to nine ships and accommodates 596 passengers. Silver Muse will offer guests the highest number of large suites (Silver, Royal, Grand and Owner’s) in the fleet, and the greatest number of connecting suites for families and friends. Silver Muse offers a welcoming blend of spaciousness, luxury, and comfort. In addition, she will offer more restaurants than any other ultra-luxury ship – eight venues.
Fincantieri has built 78 cruise ships since 1990 (55 since 2002) and 29 other ships are currently being designed or built in the Group’s yards.
Silversea Cruises is recognized as an innovator in the ultra-luxury cruise line industry, offering guests large-ship amenities aboard its intimate, all-suite vessels: Silver Wind, Silver Shadow, Silver Whisper, Silver Spirit and Silver Muse – all designed to offer an atmosphere of conviviality and casual elegance. With the inclusion of the expedition ships Silver Explorer, Silver Galapagos, Silver Discoverer, and with Silver Cloud joining the Expedition fleet in November 2017, Silversea’s itineraries encompass all seven continents and feature worldwide luxury cruises to the Mediterranean, Caribbean, both Polar Regions and 1000 fascinating destinations in between. www.silversea.com.
