O'Brien Estate
2020 Mediterranean Wine Cruise

About the Ship


 

There is something uniquely satisfying about a smaller ship.  The intimacy.  The friendly camaraderie.  The excitement of exploring secluded harbors where others cannot go.  Silversea ships can sail up narrow waterways into the heart of a city, or tie up right at the pier while others must anchor off shore.  The new Silver Moon - to be delivered August 2020 - will be the epitome of 21st century luxury travel and establish a new era of Silversea.  At 40,700 gross tons with a capacity to accommodate 596 passengers, she will mirror her sister ship Silver Muse and maintain the small-ship intimacy and spacious all-suite accommodations which are the hallmarks of the Silversea Experience.
 

INTRODUCING: SILVER MOON
Coming August 2020
