Silversea Cruises will take delivery of their newest cruise ship, Silver Moon, in three weeks on October 30, 2020. The ultra-luxury cruise ship is currently in the final stages of construction at the Fincantieri shipyard in Italy.
During the peak months of Silver Moon’s construction at Fincantieri’s shipyard in Ancona, over 1,000 skilled professionals were working on the ship simultaneously, with over 390 companies contributing to her build. Silversea Cruises spotlights just some of the talented craftspeople who were involved in Silver Moon’s build.
“Each and every element of Silver Moon’s interior spaces has been crafted to enhance guests’ experiences and comfort,” says Barbara Muckermann, Silversea’s Chief Marketing Officer. “We value the craftsmanship of our distinguished suppliers—each of whom was selected for their commitment to exceptional quality. From our Savoir beds to our Lalique crystal artworks, the fine details of our new ship is reflected throughout our entire cruise experience. Silver Moon will push boundaries in the world of travel and I look forward to welcoming our guests aboard in the near future, as they discover the authentic beauty of the world in a new standard of comfort.”
Among the most innovative features of Silver Moon, Silversea’s new culinary program, S.A.L.T. (Sea and Land Taste), will inspire guests in three dedicated venues—S.A.L.T. Lab, S.A.L.T. Kitchen, and S.A.L.T. Bar—which were designed and built by multi-award winning design firm Hirsch-Bedner Associates.
Work on Silver Moon’s S.A.L.T. venues took 18 months from initial brief to completion, with approximately 2,740 man-hours invested by craftspeople in London, Miami, and various locations in Italy.
Across the three venues, around 330m2 of carpet was used, as well as 220m2 of tiles, 160 spotlighting fixtures, 137 chairs plus banquette seating, 81 tables, and one purpose-built wine cellar.
