About the Ship

Introducing: Silver Moon
Coming in 2021

There is something uniquely satisfying about a smaller ship. The intimacy. The friendly camaraderie. The excitement of exploring secluded harbors where others cannot go. Silversea ships can sail up narrow waterways into the heart of a city, or tie up right at the pier while others must anchor off shore.

Built by cruise lovers, for cruise lovers, Silver Moon will be the epitome of 21st century luxury travel.  At 40,700 gross tons and with a capacity to accommodate 596 passengers on board, Silver Moon will mirror her sister ship, Silver Muse, and maintain the small-ship intimacy and spacious all-suite accommodation which are hallmarks of the Silversea experience.

Silver Moon will also feature the all-new Sea And Land Taste (S.A.L.T.) programme – an immersive culinary concept that will enable guests to travel deeper through a range of destination based gastronomic experiences.  Get ready – a new moon is coming!
