The keel laying ceremony of Silver Moon, the second of three new ultra-luxury cruise ships that Fincantieri is building for Silversea Cruises took place Thursday at the Ancona yard.

The vessel will debut in 2020.

The second of three sisters

Silver Moon is a sister ship of Silver Muse, which started cruising in 2017 and of Silver Dawn, due for delivery in 2021.

At 40,700gt and capacity to accommodate 596 passengers the trio will maintain the small-ship intimacy and spacious all-suite accommodations which are hallmarks of the Silversea experience.

The newbuild is the 10th ship in Silversea's fleet and will have Green Star 3 Design classification by RINA designed, built and equipped to prevent air and water pollution.

Fincantieri has built 88 cruise ships since 1990, while another 55 are currently being designed or built at the Group’s yards.
