Newest Silversea Cruises Ship Floated Out At The Shipyard
Luxury Cruise Guide
04 May, 2023
Silversea Cruises and the Meyer Werft shipyard recently celebrated the float out of the new ship Silver Nova in Papenburg, Germany. After water had filled the drydock, tugboats maneuvered the vessel from one of the world’s largest enclosed construction halls into the adjacent harbor. Set to become the 12th ship in the ultra-luxury cruise line’s fleet when it launches in summer 2023, Silver Nova will be among the most environmentally conscious ultra-luxury cruise ships.
Commemorating the important milestone and in observance of shipbuilding traditions, Captain Cosimo Pontillo welded a special coin to a wall on the pool deck, which will remain visible to the ship’s future guests as a symbol of good luck. Meyer Werft’s craftspeople cleaned the ship’s hull, attached its funnel, and installed the LNG and radar masts. Unique to the Meyer Werft shipyard, Silver Nova’s next journey—scheduled for the end of May—will entail a conveyance of approximately 20 miles down the narrow Ems River to the sea.
Currently under construction in Papenburg as the first of two Nova class ships, the 728-guest Silver Nova is set to become the most sustainable ultra-luxury ship ever launched when it joins Silversea’s fleet in summer 2023. Silver Nova will represent the next iteration of Silversea’s take on luxury, with the largest choice of bars, restaurants and lounges in ultra-luxury cruising; some of the most spacious guest suites at sea; and a range of innovative features—including an asymmetrical design and horizontal layout—that are unprecedented for the cruise line.Find Great Cruise Deals
