Silversea Cruises has celebrated the keel-laying of its newest ship, Silver Muse, at the Fincantieri shipyard in Genoa, Italy.
The ceremony is a long-standing maritime tradition celebrating the start of a ship's construction. The action of welding a coin into the keel of the ship is said to bring good luck during the build and to the captain and crew during her later life. Silversea has welded eight coins into the keel of Silver Muse. Each coin represents one of the seven continents that Silversea ships sail to, along with a specially designed commemorative Silver Muse coin.
The ceremony was attended by Silversea CEO Enzo Visone and Fincantieri shipyard director Raffaele Davassi.
Silver Muse has 298 suites on board which can accommodate up to 596 guests.
