Silversea Starts Work On First Nova Class Ship

Silversea Cruises has announced the name of its first ship, Silver Nova, developed as part of its innovative newbuild project known as Project Evolution, as well as the commencement of the ship’s construction at Meyer Werft in Papenburg. Executives from Silversea and Meyer Werft marked the occasion with a traditional steel cutting ceremony on Nov. 18.

The revolutionary vessel, set for delivery in summer 2023, will be the first hybrid, luxury cruise ship free of local emissions at port, positioning Silversea at the forefront of sustainable cruising for years to come.

Silver Nova and future Nova class ships are the latest examples of Silversea’s ongoing efforts to offer travellers an ultra-luxurious experience while simultaneously protecting the treasured destinations it visits and the communities it serves.
