Silver Muse, the ninth ship in the Silversea fleet, caters to the most 
discerning passengers at sea, offering the highest expression of elegance and 
comfort, redefining the ultra-luxury cruising experience. 

Over the past two weeks, guests invited from around the world have had the 
opportunity to preview the new flagship on a number of exclusive sailings in 
the Mediterranean. Initial feedback from members of the press, trade and 
industry representatives alike has been overwhelmingly positive, with the 
quality of finish delivered by Fincantieri and levels of service by Silversea 
crew exceeding guests' expectations.     

Accommodating 596 guests, the ship boasts an  unrivalled selection of dining 
options on board including three restaurants  new to the Silversea fleet. These 
are Atlantide, a seafood and grill concept  that represents the ultimate in 
excellence and creativity using the finest ingredients sourced from across the 
world; the Asian-accented Indochine; and  an Italian-themed poolside restaurant 
Spaccanapoli which serves home-made Italian pizzas throughout the day. These 
give guests on Silver Muse a choice of eight restaurants and also the freedom 
to eat "anything, anywhere, anytime" on the ship.  

The ship is also home to the unique Zàgara Beauty Spa which offers a sanctuary 
of leisure and comfort, transporting guests on a journey of the five senses 
tailored to their individual needs and preferences.  

Monaco is not simply the base for Silversea's operations, it is the natural 
home for the company's proud Monegasque history. Silversea showcases the 
culture, traditions and values of the Principality to the world, with its nine 
ships visiting over 800 different ports of call each year.  

Attending the christening ceremony, H.S.H. Prince Albert II of Monaco said: "On 
behalf of the Principality of Monaco I would like to extend a warm welcome to 
Silver Muse, its crew and passengers. She represents the next generation of 
cruise ships in both fuel efficiency and energy saving technology. We share 
with Silversea common values and principles in relation with responsable 
environmental practices and the development of a sustainable business activity. 
The preservation of the oceans is a crucial priority for future generations." 

Manfredi Lefebvre d'Ovidio, Silversea Chairman, said: "The close ties between 
Silversea and the Principality of Monaco reflect not  only our commitment to 
this beautiful region but also the history and values  that we adhere to. 
Silversea is an Italian family-owned business yet our heart  will always be 
shared with the Principality as we continue to go from strength  to strength. 
As the home of Silversea, Monaco was always the natural choice  for the 
christening of our new flagship, Silver Muse, and it is with  great pleasure 
that we can share this milestone with both the residents and  guests of the

evolution of the  hallmarks that set Silversea apart from the competition. With 
eight dining  options offering 28 variations of culinary delights, Silver Muse
