New hori­zons for Sil­versea

Travel Bulletin - - CRUISE REPORT -

Last month Sil­versea’s new gen­eral man­ager for Asia-pa­cific, Am­ber Wil­son, was in­tro­duced to the travel in­dus­try at an event which high­lighted the much an­tic­i­pated de­but of Sil­ver Muse. Syd­ney-based Wil­son joined Sil­versea in Au­gust this year, with re­spon­si­bil­ity for the rev­enue, sales and mar­ket­ing man­age­ment across the re­gion, over­see­ing teams in both Aus­tralia and Sin­ga­pore. She was most re­cently gen­eral man­ager of sales and mar­ket­ing at Cruiseco, and has also worked at Star Cruises and Nor­we­gian Cruise Line. Sil­ver Muse is sched­uled to launch in 2017, and will fur­ther raise the bar of lux­ury cruis­ing – both in terms of her on-board fa­cil­i­ties and the ex­otic itin­er­ar­ies the new ship will un­der­take. She will be the ninth ves­sel in the Sil­versea fleet, with all-suite ac­com­mo­da­tion for 596 guests. Muse of­fers a num­ber of unique fea­tures – not least an ar­ray of eight on-board restau­rants mean­ing cruis­ers will be very much spoilt for choice. As if that’s not enough there’s also 24/7 but­ler ser­vice and the op­tion of in-suite din­ing. Such is the ex­cite­ment around the de­but of Muse that Sil­versea has launched a ded­i­cated brochure for the ship, which launches in Monte Carlo and in her first year will cruise the Mediter­ranean be­fore cross­ing the At­lantic to voy­age in North and South Amer­ica. Sil­versea has also an­nounced details of its 2018 itin­er­ar­ies for both its “clas­sic” and “ex­pe­di­tion” fleets. The ex­pe­di­tion of­fer­ing will be boosted by the pre­vi­ously an­nounced makeover of Sil­ver Cloud, which will go into dry dock in 12 months’ time to emerge in Novem­ber 2017 as the “most pres­ti­gious ex­pe­di­tion ship at sea” with new soft fur­nish­ings, re­designed suites and pub­lic spa­ces, a Deck 9 ob­ser­va­tion lounge and a fleet of 18 on-board Zo­di­acs for up-close ex­plo­rations. “The reimag­ined Sil­ver Cloud will be a place you can call home, even at the ends of the earth,” Wil­son said.
