Silver Nova takes to the seas on maiden voyage

The first Nova-class ship for Silversea is one of the most spacious and environmentally conscious ultra-luxury cruise ships ever built and boasts an innovative design that immerses guests into their environment.

On Monday 14 August 2023, Silversea’s newest ship, Silver Nova, took to the water on its maiden voyage from Venice, Italy. The ship departs on a seven-day journey through the Adriatic, calling into Piran, Slovenia; Zadar, Dubrovnik, Split, and Rovinj in Croatia; and Kotor, Montenegro. The ultra-luxurious cruise ship will then embark on a Mediterranean summer before venturing into the Caribbean and South America in November. On 4 January 2024, Silver Nova will set sail for the 71-day Grand Voyage South America, visiting 38 destinations in 18 countries.

Highlights from Silver Nova

Silver Nova is the 12th ship to join Silversea’s fleet and showcases an innovative design that establishes the vessel as one of the most environmentally conscious ultra-luxury cruise ships ever built. The architectural concept is symmetrical, spacious and open and uses approximately 4000 square metres of glass to immerse guests into the destination from all venues and suites.

Venues and experiences aboard Silver Nova

Silver Nova’s pool deck overlooks the ocean on the starboard side, while two new outdoor venues, Dusk Bar and the Marquee, invite guests to relax and indulge. Further within the ship guests can expect to find a huge selection of bars, restaurants, and lounges, alongside Otium, the cruise line’s Roman-inspired wellness program, and the new Sea and Land Taste (S.A.L.T.) culinary program which comprises an on-board ecosystem of culinary discovery, immersive excursions ashore, food lectures, hands-on experiences, and more.

Silver Nova suites and services

Boasting the highest space-to-guest ratio of any Silversea ship, Silver Nova hosts up to 728 guests in 13 different suite categories, the largest variety of suites in Silversea’s history, and every suite has access to a private veranda and a private butler. The Otium Suite is the largest of the categories, sprawling across 123 square metres with floor-to-ceiling windows that provide 270-degree views from the ship’s premium aft-corner position. It even has a 40 square metre balcony with a private whirlpool.

Silver Nova’s sister ship, Silver Ray, is scheduled to launch in summer 2024.
