Silversea Cruises has announced new details on the upcoming 11th ship in its fleet, Silver Nova.
Built with an asymmetrical design — a first for Silversea — the vessel will offer all-new outdoor spaces with a reimagined pool deck, an al fresco dining area, and a sky bar that offers panoramic views from the ship’s aft.
The Pool Deck
Located on decks 10 and 11, Silver Nova‘s pool decks will be the primary outdoor areas to relax and socialize — with space for 280 sunbeds.
The horseshoe-shaped pool area will be found on the ship’s starboard side, offering unobstructed views from the pool, pool bar, and sunbathing areas.
The main pool will be larger than on Silversea’s previous ships, reimagined with a new layout, wide entrance steps, and more shallow water spots to sit and relax.
Nova‘s top level, deck 11, forms an amphitheater-shaped structure with deck 10. It will offer a quieter space for relaxing — also with expansive views.
Overlooking the ship’s port side will be an all-new infinity-edge whirlpool, aptly named The Cliff Whirlpool.
The vessel’s unusual design has also allowed Silversea to introduce two new food and beverage venues on deck 10.
The Marquee is the first of the two, located towards the aft on the port side. The al fresco dining venue will hold up to 220 guests, incorporating The Grill and Spaccanapoli — two of Silversea’s signature venues. The Grill allows guests to cook their food on hot rocks, and Spaccanapoli offers what some consider to be the best pizza at sea.
The Marquee will serve casual fare during the day, and offer dinner under the stars at night.
The Dusk Bar
Located on deck 10, The Dusk Bar is the second of the new aforementioned venues. It’s an open-air sky bar that can accommodate up to 70 guests, allowing them to enjoy a drink with 270-degree views from Silver Nova‘s stern.
Other Venues on the Ship
Among her eight dining venues, Nova will feature some of Silversea’s signature restaurants on decks 3 and 4.
The largest restaurant — La Terrazza — will seat 340 passengers and boast a vibrant new color palette. Floor-to-ceiling windows will surround the interior space, and the restaurant’s outdoor terrace will be the largest in the fleet.
A guest favorite, Atlantide, will seat 270 guests and also feature a new interior design.
French restaurant La Dame will have more space than ever before, and also include higher ceilings.
Taking inspiration from the world’s best sushi restaurants, Kaiseki will maintain its minimalist, sophisticated aesthetic, welcoming up to 40 diners.
More Silver Nova Information
Silver Nova is set to become the world’s first low-emissions cruise ship, featuring advanced hybrid technology that utilizes fuel cells — emitting zero harmful emissions while in port.
The vessel will hold up to 728 guests in 13 different suite categories — the largest variety of suites in Silversea’s fleet.
