The team at Silversea officially named its newest vessel, Silver Nova during an intimate ceremony in Fort Lauderdale on January 4, honoring maritime traditions to welcome the ‘Ship of Light’ to its fleet.

The most environmentally conscious ultra-luxury ship ever built, the 728-guest Silver Nova strengthens Royal Caribbean Group’s commitment to delivering the world’s best vacations, responsibly.

The customary tradition of Royal Caribbean Group,  bagpipes resounded triumphantly through Silver Nova’s theatre to mark the commencement of the ceremony.

A performance of the U.S. national anthem by Rachel York followed, as well as an exclusive screening of a commemorative video to honor Silversea’s 30th anniversary, which the Brand celebrates in 2024.

The most environmentally conscious ultra-luxury cruise ships ever built, Silver Nova introduces an entirely new take on luxury at sea.

Her innovative design, which prizes openness over symmetry and incorporates an unprecedented use of approximately 4,000m2 of glass, immerses guests into the destination from virtually all venues and suites, with far-reaching views at every turn. Her reimagined pool deck, which overlooks the water on her starboard side, and all-new outdoor venues — the Dusk Bar and the Marquee — best exemplify her unique openness to the destination.

One of the most spacious cruise ships ever built, Silver Nova has a space-to-guest ratio of 75 GRT-per-guest — the highest in Silversea’s fleet.

She offers one of the most personalized levels of service at sea with a crew-to-guest ratio of 1:1.3, including butler service for all suites.

She hosts up to 728 guests in 13 different suite categories — the largest variety of suites in Silversea’s history, and among the most spacious accommodations of any cruise ship. Every suite offers guests the use of a private veranda.

Silver Nova departed on her maiden voyage from Venice on August 14, 2023.

Following her Naming Ceremony in Fort Lauderdale, she now undertakes her first Grand Voyage, the Grand Voyage South America 2024, during which she will circumnavigate the continent, calling in 38 destinations in 18 countries over 71 days.
