Luxury cruise line, Silversea Cruises’ iconic flagship, Silver Muse, arrived in Sydney on Sunday, 6th January for the first time.
The newest ship in Silversea’s fleet and widely regarded as one of the most luxurious boutique cruise ships in the world, Silver Muse’s sailing into Sydney Harbour on Sunday marked the first time in a decade that Silversea has brought one of its new vessels to Australia.
“Welcoming Silver Muse to Australia and New Zealand is very special and something we have been eagerly anticipating for some time now,” said Adam Armstrong, Managing Director – Australia and New Zealand, Silversea Cruises. “As the newest, most spacious and most luxurious ship to call Australia home this year, her deployment reflects our strong commitment to the local market and we are absolutely delighted that Silver Muse will return again next summer for an expanded season.”
Roberto Martinoli, Chief Executive, and Barbara Muckermann, Chief Marketing Officer at Silversea in Monaco, were also in attendance at Sydney Harbour to celebrate the arrival of Silver Muse.
Following her arrival in Darwin on 26th December 2018, guests aboard Silver Muse visited multiple Australian maiden ports of call down the east coast of Australia on the journey towards Sydney, including Cairns, Townsville, the Whitsunday Islands and Brisbane.
The 596-guest all-suite vessel is targeted at the world’s most discerning travellers, promising absolute levels of comfort, service and quality. On board, guests experience enhanced small-ship intimacy, spacious all suite accommodations, expansive outdoor spaces and the most comprehensive choice of dining options at sea with eight venues, including specialty choices such as Kaiseki and Indochine, plus 24-hour complimentary dining options throughout the ship. All suites also have butler service.
After a brief overnight stay in Sydney, Silver Muse departed the harbour city yesterday for a 14-night cruise to Tasmania and New Zealand, culminating in a maiden visit to Auckland on 19th January 2019. After offering a number of sailings between Australia and New Zealand, Silver Muse will depart for her 74-day Grand Asia Pacific Voyage from Sydney to Tokyo and then commence her maiden season of Alaska cruises. Silver Muse will return to Sydney in 2019/20 and stay for over four months (late November to end of March) – twice the length of the current season.
