Giovanni Stecconi, the Director of Fincantieri’s shipyard in Ancona, subsequently presented Captain Alessandro Zanello, Silver Moon’s Master – who was also at the helm for the delivery Silver Moon’s sister ship, Silver Muse, in 2017 – with a commemorative ampoule that contained seawater from the launch. Concluding Silver Moon’s delivery, those present raised a glass of champagne, while respecting physical distancing protocol, to welcome the ship to Silversea’s fleet.

S.A.L.T. Program: Immersive Culinary Enrichment

Debuting aboard Silver Moon is the innovative new culinary enrichment program S.A.L.T., an acronym of Sea and Land Taste, which will enable guests to travel deeper through a range of destination-focused gastronomic experiences – both on-board and ashore.

As part of the S.A.L.T. program, three new venues will unlock immersive culinary experiences for guests on Silver Moon, forming a hub of culinary discovery on Deck 4:

  • Among the largest of eight restaurants aboard Silver Moon, S.A.L.T. Kitchen is the first large-scale regional restaurant aboard a luxury cruise ship, offering a menu that changes with the destination and a regionally inspired wine list;
  • S.A.L.T. Lab is a test kitchen that enables guests to learn about local ingredients and artisanal techniques, through workshops, tastings, and demonstrations;
  • and S.A.L.T. Bar allows guests to sample the most authentic flavors of the destination, through a large selection of regional wines, spirits, and other drinks.

Enhanced Public Spaces

At 40,700 gross tons and with a maximum capacity of just 596 guests, Silver Moon takes influence from the successful design of her sister ship, Silver Muse. At the same time, a number of public spaces have been reimagined for the enjoyment of guests, including the following sample:

  • Serving fine French cuisine, Silversea’s signature restaurant, La Dame, has been redesigned and enlarged to accommodate 56 guests, with the option to dine outdoors. Lalique crystal panels have been incorporated into the restaurant’s design.
  • Atlantide restaurant has been enlarged and enriched to accommodate up to 220 guests.
  • The enhanced design of Kaiseki takes inspiration from sushi restaurants around the world. Here, guests will witness sushi chefs in action, as they prepare fresh sushi, sashimi and other Asian-inspired dishes that are inspired by the seasons.
  • The popular Dolce Vita lounge has a new layout with the bar repositioned to the center of the venue. Dolce Vita will welcome guests as both a bar during the daytime and as a piano bar by night.
  • The Connoisseur’s Corner now features a new Wintergarden area, creating a sheltered and inviting area outdoors. In the Connoisseur’s Corner, guests will enjoy a selection of cigars and premium liquors.
