Silversea Cruises’ new Silver Dawn touched water for the first time today during its float-out at the Fincantieri shipyard in Ancona, Italy.

The equipment phase is now beginning as the Silver Dawn will be the 10th ship in the Silversea fleet in 2021.

“We are proud to celebrate this important milestone in the construction of our beautiful new Silver Dawn,” said Roberto Martinoli, President and CEO of Silversea Cruises. “Our long-term partnership with Fincantieri continues to push the boundaries of the ultra-luxury cruise industry, while the continued support and expertise of the Royal Caribbean Group has been invaluable in the shipbuilding industry. While Silver Dawn is influencing our beloved ships Silver Muse and Silver Moon, our guests will benefit from many groundbreaking improvements on board the tenth ship in our fleet. We look forward to announcing these in the coming months. “

Luigi Matarazzo, General Manager Merchant Ships Division of Fincantieri, stated: “Based on the very successful design of Silver Muse, Silver Dawn is the fourth ship we will build for Silversea. There is no better recognition for a shipbuilder than that of a discerning and respected owner who welcomes innovations with enthusiasm. We are therefore very proud to celebrate the launch of this ship. It consolidates the technology and management leadership of our group, which is even more valuable in the very challenging situation we are in. “
