Silversea Reveals Details of Silver Nova’s Asymmetrical Design

Silversea Cruises has unveiled the latest insight on its fleet’s 11th ship, Silver Nova, scheduled for delivery in 2023. The new ship is built with an asymmetrical design and will offer guests new outdoor spaces.

Silver Nova’s pool decks will have ample space for 280 sunbeds on Decks 10 and 11. The horseshoe-shaped pool area will occupy the starboard side of the ship, offering unobstructed views on the destination from the swimming pool, the adjacent pool bar, and the sunbathing areas. At 1,400 square feet, the main pool is larger than on the cruise line’s previous ships, with a new layout, wide entrance steps and more shallow waters. Deck 10’s pool bar offers a centralized hub for socializing, day and night. Silver Nova’s uppermost level, Deck 11, forms an amphitheater-shaped structure with Deck 10. It will offer guests a more intimate space for relaxing. At its center, overlooking the ship’s port side, extends a new infinity edge whirlpool, named The Cliff Whirlpool.

Silver Nova’s asymmetrical design has also enabled the introduction of two new food and beverage venues on Deck 10. The Marquee is positioned towards the ship’s aft on the port side and offers views out to sea. The al fresco dining venue will welcome up to 220 guests, incorporating The Grill and Spaccanapoli—two of Silversea’s existing signature venues. The Marquee will serve casual fare by day and offer dinner under the stars by night. The second of the two new venues, The Dusk Bar is a new open-air sky bar that can accommodate up to 70 guests, offering 270-degree panoramic views from the vessel’s stern.

Among its eight dining venues, Silver Nova will offer guests a selection of Silversea’s signature restaurants on decks three and four, which have been enlarged and revamped. The largest of Silver Nova’s restaurants, La Terrazza (on Deck 4), will seat 340 guests and will have a vibrant color palette; floor-to-ceiling windows will surround the restaurant’s interiors, offering panoramic views, besides an outdoor terrace. Atlantide, the ship’s second-largest restaurant, will seat 270 guests on Deck 3. Silversea’s signature French restaurant La Dame, on Deck 4, will have an enhanced capacity for 70 diners. Kaiseki, the sushi restaurant, will maintain its minimalist aesthetic, welcoming up to 40 guests on Deck 4.

Silver Nova is set to become a low-emissions cruise ship with advanced hybrid technology that utilizes fuel cells, emitting zero harmful emissions while in port—an industry first.
