Silver Muse Review
Silver Muse Overview
Set to debut in spring 2017, Silver Muse will be a 596-passenger, all-suite ship that will serve as a flagship for the luxury line. At 40,700 tons, the ship will be the largest in the Silversea fleet; the cruise line is giving the vessel the tagline "simply divine."
The cruise ship is slated to have contemporary decor, with cabins decorated in tones of cream, saffron, green and sienna. Entry-level suites include three categories of veranda suites, all measuring 387 square feet (including a 64-square-foot private balcony). There will be more signature Silver Suites (786 square feet) on Silver Muse than on the line's other vessels, with 34 spread across three top decks. Silversea is adding a two-bedroom configuration that measures 1,119 square feet to appeal to families and groups of friends traveling together.
Four two-bedroom, apartment-style Owner's Suites measure 1,389 square feet (including a 129-square-foot veranda). There will also be four 1,475-square-foot Grand Suites and two Royal Suites that come in at 1,130 square feet. These two also come in larger, two-bedroom versions.
Silver Muse will have eight restaurants, three of them outdoors, but no main dining room as on other ships. All except for La Dame are included in your cruise fare. Among the choices:
La Dame: Continuing the line's long-term partnership with the luxury collection of hotels and restaurants, La Dame is Silver Muse's exclusive Relais & Chateaux venue. It's an upscale French restaurant, with locally sourced ingredients and unique food presentation.
Kabuki: This Japanese restaurant will have a theatrical aspect, as befits its name, with teppanyaki iron griddles used for evening meals. Sushi and sashimi are available during the day.
Indochine: An Asian fusion restaurant focusing on the spices and flavors of the Orient.
Silver Note: Silver Note is a jazz club that serves up tapas-style dishes. Musicians play jazz and blues during dinner.
Atlantide: A European-style seafood grill that also serves steak.
La Terrazza: This indoor/outdoor buffet venue for breakfast and lunch turns into an Italian restaurant, inspired by the Slow Food movement, at night.
Hot Rocks: An outdoor, pool deck venue where passengers grill their own seafood and meats.
Regina Margherita: An all-day, open-air pizzeria, also on the pool deck.
