Silversea Cruises unveiled new details on its 11th ship, Silver Nova, scheduled for delivery in 2023. Built with an asymmetrical design, a first for the cruise line, the new ship will offer guests new outdoor spaces with a reimagined, outward-facing pool deck; an al fresco dining area; and a sky bar that offers panoramic views from the ship’s aft.
“Silver Nova represents the next iteration of Silversea’s unique take on luxury, with an entirely new design approach that will enhance our guests’ cruise experience,” said Roberto Martinoli, Silversea’s President and CEO. “With her outward-facing, asymmetrical layout and her all-new outdoor venues, Silver Nova will offer our guests a brand new way to connect and engage with each destination. Moreover, with her groundbreaking environmental credentials, Silver Nova will strengthen our position at the forefront of sustainable cruise travel.”
Silver Nova’s asymmetrical design has enabled the creation of a reimagined pool area and new outdoor venues on decks 10 and 11. Each space places emphasis on the destination, with panoramic views that connect guests with the world beyond. The following venues and deck spaces highlight Silver Nova’s all-new outdoor offering:
The Pool Deck – Decks 10/11
Silver Nova’s pool decks will be the primary outdoor areas with space for 280 sunbeds on decks 10 and 11. The horseshoe-shaped pool area will occupy space on the starboard side of the ship, affording views on the destination from the swimming pool, the adjacent pool bar, and the sunbathing areas. At 130 square meter, the main pool is larger than on the cruise line’s previous ships, reimagined with a new layout, wide entrance steps, and more shallow waters in which guests can sit.
Deck 10’s pool bar offers a centralized hub for socializing, day and night. Silver Nova’s uppermost level, deck 11 forms an amphitheater-shaped structure with deck 10. It will offer guests a quieter space for relaxing, with views over the destination and out to sea. At its center, overlooking the ship’s port side, extends an all-new infinity edge whirlpool, named The Cliff Whirlpool.
The Marquee – Deck 10
Silver Nova’s asymmetrical design has also enabled the introduction of two new food and drinks venues on deck 10. The Marquee is the first of the pair, positioned towards the ship’s aft on the port side and enjoying views out to sea. The al fresco dining venue will welcome up to 220 guests, incorporating The Grill and Spaccanapoli, two of Silversea’s existing signature venues, which offer guests the ‘hot rocks’ culinary concept and pizza at sea, respectively. Due to its proximity to the swimming pool, The Marquee will serve casual fare by day and offering dinner under the stars by night.
The Dusk Bar – Deck 10
The second of the two new food and drinks venues, The Dusk Bar is a brand new open-air sky bar that provides a space for up to 70 guests to enjoy a drink, with 270-degree, panoramic views from Silver Nova’s stern.
Among its eight dining venues, Silver Nova will offer guests a selection of Silversea’s signature restaurants on decks 3 and 4, enlarged and reimagined with enhanced designs.
The largest of Silver Nova’s restaurants, La Terrazza will seat 340 guests and will feature a new color palette on deck 4. Floor-to-ceiling windows will surround the restaurant’s interior space, offering panoramic views, while its outdoor terrace will be larger than ever.
Atlantide will seat 270 guests on deck 3 as the ship’s second-largest restaurant, complete with a new interior design. Silversea’s signature French restaurant, La Dame, will be more spacious than ever on deck 4, with an enlarged capacity for 70 diners and higher ceilings. Kaiseki will maintain its minimalist aesthetic, welcoming up to 40 guests on deck 4. More information on Silver Nova’s culinary offerings will be released soon, the cruise line said.
As well as incorporating a new design approach, Silver Nova is set to become the world’s first low-emissions cruise ship with advanced hybrid technology that utilizes fuel cells, emitting zero harmful emissions while in port.
Silver Nova will host up to 728 guests in 13 different suite categories, the largest variety of suites in Silversea’s history. Every suite on board will offer guests the use of a private veranda. A new collection of prized aft suites will afford 270-degree views on the destination. As well as the cruise line’s Roman-inspired wellness program, and S.A.L.T., its immersive culinary offering, Silver Nova will offer guests Silversea’s service and an array of new features.
