Silversea Cruises has unveiled the collection of suites aboard its upcoming cruise ship Silver Nova, due for delivery in 2023.
Silver Nova, the first of the cruise line’s new Nova-class cruise ships, will be an all-suite vessel, with 364 staterooms.
The suites will be available across 13 categories and unlike most cruise ship cabins, will be designed with an asymmetrical configuration and horizontal layout.
The new interiors are designed to provide an “intimate guest experience”, according to the cruise line, with a design that runs the entire length of the ship on four decks.
“Marking a new era in ultra-luxury cruise travel, the Silver Nova suite experience represents an evolution of Silversea’s industry-leading offering,” said Barbara Muckermann, Chief Commercial Officer of Silversea Cruises. “With her asymmetrical configuration and horizontal layout, the Silver Nova will offer guests a new generation of spacious suites that are unseen in Silversea’s fleet.”
“Not only will the Silver Nova surpass our guests’ expectations in terms of comfort, but she will be one of the most environmentally conscious cruise ships ever built, paving the way for the future of ultra-luxury, sustainable cruising,” she added.
The Silver Nova will introduce seven new suite categories, with the full collection providing greater variety, including brand new premium aft suites – a first for Silversea.
Two stand-out new suite categories:
The 65 sqm or 700 sq ft Signature Suite offers “sweeping views” from all interior spaces. The spaces include a dining, living and sleeping area and a luxurious bathroom, but it also features a large balcony with space in which to relax and unwind. The Signature Suite also includes custom-made luxury mattresses, two large flat-screen televisions, a sound system with Bluetooth connectivity, and an espresso machine.
The 123 sqm or 1,324 sq ft Otium Suite is inspired by Silversea’s new wellness program, Otium, andoffers the most spacious interiors aboard the Silver Nova for the ultimate suite experience at sea, located in the premium aft corner position. Featuring floor-to-ceiling windows in all living areas, it offers 270-degree views from the inside, while its balcony is the most spacious onboard and features a private whirlpool. The Otium Suite also includes custom-made luxury mattresses, two large flat-screen televisions, a sound system with Bluetooth connectivity, and an espresso machine.
The Silver Nova’s suites range from 33 sqm (357 sq. ft.) to 123 sqm (1,324 sq. ft.). All 364 offer redesigned bathrooms and walk-in wardrobes.
The bathroom has been refined to include a modern oversized mirror, a large vanity with two faucets, a spacious walk-in shower, and a lavish bathtub or whirlpool.
The walk-in closet has been reimagined to provide a more significant openness, particularly in the Veranda Suites, and includes a set of intuitive design details, such as dedicated compartments for personal jewellery.
Furthermore, all suites include large balconies, ranging from 5 sqm to 40 sqm, with 270-degree ocean and land views from select suites.
Architect Giacomo Mortola and his firm GEM led the design process of the suites onboard the Silver Nova, taking inspiration from Silversea’s recent ships – Silver Muse, Silver Moon, Silver Dawn and Silver Origin.
Silver Nova introduces new, intuitive and modern design details, including elegant, soft lighting; headboards with integrated reading lights; and a color palette that blends soft and neutral tones, with deeper but subtle accents inspired by “the sea and earth.”
As part of Silversea’s comprehensive all-inclusive offering, all suites feature butler service, complimentary in-suite dining around the clock, a minibar stocked with guests’ preferences, plush bathrobes and slippers, a pillow menu, luxury bath amenities, and complimentary unlimited Wi-Fi.
