Royal Caribbean Group board new Silversea ship 

Royal Caribbean Group executives enjoyed a sneak preview of Silversea’s new ship, Silver Nova, last week in Eemshaven, Netherlands. The ship is described as ‘the most environmentally conscious, ultra-luxury cruise ship ever built’. 

Silver Nova represents an important milestone on Royal Caribbean Group’s journey to Destination Net Zero. Future Nova-class ships are set to introduce ‘an unparalleled openness to the world and an entirely new take on luxury at sea’. 

Silver Nova is scheduled to depart on her maiden voyage on August 14, sailing round-trip from Fusina (Venice, Italy) over seven days.  

Jason Liberty, President and CEO of Royal Caribbean Group, said: “Innovation drives our mission to provide the best vacations, responsibly, and Silver Nova embodies this commitment in every way. This stunning ship revolutionizes ultra-luxury cruising and represents an important step on our sustainability journey.” 

“I would like to officially thank and congratulate the Meyer family, and the talented teams at Meyer Werft, Royal Caribbean Group, and Silversea for pushing industry boundaries to create such a pioneering ship,” he added. 

Barbara Muckermann, President of Silversea, said: “Silver Nova embodies the vision of our brand and the evolution of our fleet, demonstrating the extent to which our guests are benefitting from our brand being part of Royal Caribbean Group.” 

Silver Nova introduces an industry-leading approach to sustainability, an unprecedented openness to the world, and an entirely new take on luxury at sea. She is a beauty and I can’t wait to personally greet our guests on board, introducing them to the future of ultra-luxury cruise travel,” added Muckermann.
