As the world continues to evaluate the situation to determine when they will be ready to get back to the world of travel, we are seeing an attraction toward small cruise ships. Enter Silversea’s Silver Moon. Simply a beautiful option on every level. Delivered in October 2020, Silver Moon pushes the boundaries of ultra-luxury, immersive travel as one of the best ship in her class.
Taking inspiration from her sister ship, Silver Muse, Silver Moon maintains the small-ship intimacy and spacious all-suite accommodations that are hallmarks of the Silversea experience, while bringing elements of innovation and an array of enhancements. With fewer than 300 suites, a personalized service, and a crew-to-guest ratio of almost 1:1, Silver Moon offers unparalleled levels of comfort and physical distancing to ensure that you will be traveling in unwavering confidence.
Among her eight distinct restaurant concepts is the new S.A.L.T. Kitchen, which will serve regionally inspired cuisine as one of three new venues to comprise Silversea’s new S.A.L.T. program. Elsewhere, guests will continue their culinary discovery of the Eastern Mediterranean’s richest food and drink cultures in the S.A.L.T. Bar and the S.A.L.T. Lab—the former of which will serve guests cocktails, spirits and other drinks inspired by the visited destination, while the latter is a test kitchen that will enable guests to get hands-on with the best ingredients from the region.
We always love the localized travel and culinary experiences at LuxeGetaways, so this newest offering from Silversea is exciting on so many different levels.
