Silversea Cruises has introduced its newest ship, the Silver Nova, which embraces asymmetry in its design. The ship features an asymmetrical pool on Deck 10, offering passengers a full view of the sea without obstructive walkways. The Nova also boasts 43,000 square feet of glass windows, allowing for ample natural light and stunning views of the surrounding landscapes. The ship’s S.A.L.T. culinary program and Lab test kitchen are located on Deck 10 with glass walls that open onto a spacious deck area. The Nova’s public areas promise glass views, including over the treadmills, and a three-deck-high atrium connects various gathering places. The ship also incorporates sustainability measures, such as the use of liquid natural gas fuel and the elimination of plastic waste.
The Nova is significantly larger than Silversea’s Muse class ships, accommodating up to 728 guests in thirteen different suite categories. The crew-to-guest ratio is 1:1.3, and butler service is included in all suites. The ship’s maiden voyage took place in mid-August, and it will embark on a 71-day Grand Voyage South America in January 2024. The Nova is the sixty-fourth vessel under parent company Royal Caribbean, and its sister ship, Silver Ray, will launch next year.
Overall, the Silver Nova offers a unique and innovative cruise experience with its asymmetrical design, abundant glass windows, and commitment to sustainability. The ship’s spacious and well-designed public areas, as well as its focus on providing stunning views and natural light, set it apart from other vessels in the industry. With its luxurious accommodations and attention to detail, the Nova promises to provide an unforgettable cruising experience for its guests.
