With a regionally-focused culinary program and enhanced public spaces by Italian ship builder Fincantieri, Silversea’s newest vessel, the 596-passenger Silver Moon, will debut in August 2020. The Silver Moon, which will launch with a 12-day Trieste-to-Rome sailing on August 6, builds on the popularity of the fleet’s flagship, the Silver Muse.
On board, the S.A.L.T. (Sea and Land Taste) dining project will engage guests with a restaurant, a kitchen for cooking classes and demonstrations, the Lab for lectures by visiting epicures, and of course a bar for sipping cocktails, spirits, and wine. The program, led by food journalist Adam Sachs, will focus on regional culinary themes that will shift with ports of call.
“The S.A.L.T. program is designed to be a leading culinary experience that will enrich guests and form a connection with the visited ports,” says Virtuoso travel advisor Jonathan Phillips. “The menu will change daily, in every destination. It’s being tailored to each region, including market trips with the chef, winery visits, insightful food lectures, and cooking classes.”
Elsewhere on the ship, Lalique is lending bespoke crystal embellishments to the French La Dame restaurant, sushi-centric Kaiseki will be decked out with minimalist touches, and the contemporary Atlantide grill will grow from its Silver Muse capacity to accommodate 230 diners. The Connoisseur’s Corner cigar den will provide a sheltered outdoor Wintergarden patio area.
Travelers can experience the Silver Moon on voyages such as the ten-day sailing from Piraeus, Greece to Venice. For a longer journey, look for the 70-day South America circumnavigation in early 2021 that will visit 20 countries.
