Silversea cuts steel on Silver Ray

Silversea cuts steel on Silver Ray

The traditional ceremony for the second of the ultra-luxury line’s Nova-class vessels was held last week in Germany

Ultra-luxury line Silversea has started the construction of Silver Ray, the second ship in the environmentally conscious Nova class.
A traditional steel cutting ceremony was held at the Meyer Werft shipyard in Papenburg, Germany, last week (November 23) and the ship will launch in summer 2024.
Silver Ray will join Silver Nova, the delivery of which has now been delayed to August 14, 2023.

“We are proud to have started constructing Silver Ray in collaboration with Meyer Werft, as we continue to push boundaries in sustainable cruise travel,” said Roberto Martinoli, President and CEO, Silversea Cruises.

“As part of Royal Caribbean Group, Silversea has long stood at the forefront of innovation when it comes to environmentally conscious cruising. The launch of the Nova class represents a giant leap forward in this regard and we are introducing pioneering technologies.

“Given the worldwide issues that have affected the construction of Silver Nova, it has been decided to amend her launch date by approximately one month – in order to uphold the signature level of experience that our discerning guests have come to expect when travelling with Silversea.”

Silversea has informed affected guests and travel advisors of Silver Nova’s revised launch date, offering travellers a saving of 10 per cent when booking an alternative voyage before November 30, 2022; a Future Cruise Credit, valued at 100 per cent of the total booking amount paid; or a cash refund option.
