Silversea’s new ultra-luxury boutique ship Silver Muse will call into the Irish ports of Waterford, Cobh and Galway in her inaugural 2017 season on a transoceanic voyage from Southampton to Montreal, Canada.
Currently under construction at the Fincantieri Shipyard in Genoa, Silver Muse is due for delivery in April 2017. Accommodating up to 596 guests, Silver Muse will redefine ocean travel, enhancing the small-ship intimacy and spacious all-suite accommodations that are the hallmarks of the Silversea experience.
Silver Muse will feature eight dining venues including an exclusive Relais & Châteaux restaurant offering guests a bespoke culinary experience. The ship also features the largest swimming pool in the fleet and more tailor-made outdoor spaces. The ultra-luxurious suites will showcase fine Italian design, from crisp Pratesi linens and down duvet covers to Bvlgari bathroom amenities and personalised stationery.
During the 2016 season Silversea will also bring Silver Explorer, Silver Wind and Silver Whisper to Ireland. Silver Explorer will visit Church Bay, Rathlin Island and Portrush in May 2016 on a specialist birding itinerary. This highly immersive birding expedition will be led by a team of 11 experts including naturalists, anthropologists, geologists and ornithology experts. Guests will be able to explore Rathlin, a conservation area and a bird colony home to tens of thousands of seabirds from 30 different families, including Common Guillemots, Kittiwakes, Puffins and Razorbills.
Silver Wind and Silver Whisper will both call into Ireland in August 2016, with Silver Wind docking in Belfast, Dublin and Cork and Silver Whisper calling at Belfast, Dublin and Cobh.
Lisa McAuley, Silversea Commercial Director UK and Ireland said: “The Irish market is going from strength to strength and bookings on Silversea’s voyages that touch upon the Emerald Isle are always a popular choice with our guests. In recognition of this we are proud to announce that our new ultra-luxury flagship, Silver Muse, will also come to Ireland in 2017 on her transoceanic voyage to Canada.”
