Silversea Cruises: Silver Muse

Silver Muse Cruise Review

Silversea Cruises launched their new flagship, Silver Muse, in 2017. The largest ship in the fleet has more space and features, yet retains the small-ship intimacy that is Silversea's hallmark. In addition to ship staples, such as the Connoisseur’s Corner, where cigars and brandy are the order of the evening, and the Venetian Lounge with cabaret-style seating, Silver Muse features even more variety with eight dining options.

The new Arts Café showcases paintings and sculptures in a broad range of styles. The relaxing space with an adjacent terrace is a daytime café and deli-bar that transforms into a lively evening cocktail lounge. Just like her fleetmates, Silver Muse has a large library stocked with novels, non-fiction, classics, and travel books.

In 2018 Royal Caribbean International purchased a large stake in Silversea Cruises, adding a new luxury option to their portfolio. Intimate ships with spacious suites, exclusive amenities, and unparalleled hospitality are the hallmarks of the line. Every suite is assigned a butler, so you can expect even the most unusual requests to be fulfilled. In addition, your all-inclusive air-and-sea fares can be customized to include not just round-trip airfare but all transfers, porterage, and deluxe pre-cruise accommodations as well.

Personalization is a Silversea maxim. Their ships offer more activities than other comparably sized luxury vessels. Take part in those that interest you, or opt instead for a good book and any number of quiet spots to read or snooze in the shade.

Silversea’s third generation of ships introduced even more luxurious features when the 36,000-ton Silver Spirit launched late in 2010 and the 40,700-ton Silver Muse entered service in 2017. Silversea’s fleet of exploration ships are the top choice for luxurious soft adventure expedition cruising, includingSilver Galapagos that sails exclusively in the Galápagos Islands.
