Silversea Cruises has announced additional design details for its new cruise ship Silver Nova, the first in a new class of at least two ships.
Silver Nova will feature what the cruise line calls a “revolutionary asymmetrical design”, with a forward-facing pool area on the bow and a panoramic sky bar at the stern.
The ship will also offer an al fresco dining area with expansive views, in order to place the emphasis of every voyage on the destination visited, according to the cruise line.

Silver Nova will offer new outdoor spaces with an “unprecedented openness to the destination,” says Silversea Cruises.
“The Silver Nova represents the next iteration of Silversea’s take on luxury, with an entirely new design approach that will enhance our guests’ cruise experience,” said Roberto Martinoli, President & CEO, Silversea Cruises. “With her outward-facing, asymmetrical layout and her all-new outdoor venues, the Silver Nova will offer our guests a new way to connect and engage with each destination.”
“Moreover, with her groundbreaking environmental credentials, the Silver Nova will strengthen our position at the forefront of sustainable cruise travel,” he added.
Martinoli was referring to Silver Nova’s hybrid technology that utilises fuel cells, emitting zero harmful emissions while in port—an industry first.
The ship’s so-called asymmetrical design means that it will feature a reimagined pool area and new outdoor venues on decks 10 and 11.
The pool decks will be the primary outdoor areas with space for 280 sunbeds on decks 10 and 11, and a horseshoe-shaped pool area on the starboard side, affording unobstructed views on the destination from the swimming pool, the adjacent pool bar, and the sunbathing areas.
At 130 square meters, the main pool will be larger than on the cruise line’s previous ships, with a new layout, wide entrance steps, and more shallow waters in which guests can sit.
On Deck 10, a pool bar will be a hub for socializing, day and night while the uppermost level, Deck 11 forms an amphitheater-shaped structure where guests will find a quieter, more intimate space for relaxing, complete with expansive views.
At its center, overlooking the ship’s port side, extends an all-new infinity edge whirlpool, named The Cliff Whirlpool.
The asymmetrical design has also enabled the introduction of two new food and drink venues on deck 10. The Marquee is the first of the pair, positioned towards the ship’s aft on the port side and offering views out to sea. The al fresco dining venue will accommodate up to 220 guests, incorporating The Grill and Spaccanapoli—two of Silversea’s existing signature venues.
Due to its proximity to the swimming pool, The Marquee will have a relaxed atmosphere, serving casual fare by day and offering dinner under the stars by night.
The second of the two new food and drinks venues, The Dusk Bar is an open-air sky bar that provides space for up to 70 guests, with 270-degree, panoramic views from the stern.
These will be among eight dining venues available aboard Silver Nova with the other Silversea signature restaurants located on Decks 3 and 4. The cruise line says these venues will be enlarged and reimagined with enhanced designs.
The largest is La Terrazza with seating for 340 guests, while Atlantide will seat 270 guests and feature a new interior design. Silversea’s signature French restaurant, La Dame, will be more spacious than before with an enlarged capacity for 70 diners and higher ceilings.
Taking inspiration from the world’s best sushi restaurants, Kaiseki will maintain its minimalist, sophisticated aesthetic, welcoming up to 40 guests.
Silver Nova is due for delivery in 2023 from Meyer Werft, construction on her unnamed sister ship has not started yet, and a delivery date is yet to be announced.
