The onboard culinary experience is a true voyage of taste, encompassing the largest selection of bars, restaurants, and lounges in the realm of ultra-luxury cruising. The innovative culinary concept, Sea and Land Taste (S.A.L.T.), curated by Silversea, transcends mere dining to become a journey of gastronomic exploration.
This immersive program includes an onboard culinary ecosystem, enriching shore excursions, informative food lectures, hands-on cooking encounters, and more. Menus that artfully evolve with each destination, coupled with spaces for crafting local delicacies on board, make Silversea the steward of global flavours, inviting the world’s cuisines to grace the ship’s tables.
Indulgent Tranquillity at Sea
The Silver Nova’s wellness program, Otium, pays homage to Roman sensibilities, now elevated with all-new enhancements. Encompassing innovative in-suite experiences, Otium echoes the Roman philosophy that prizes well-being and indulgence over restraint.
These experiences envelop guests in sensory relaxation, allowing them to luxuriate in the fragrant embrace of essential oils diffused through invigorating shower streamers. In an unprecedented collaboration with luxury perfumers including Azzi Glasser, Mark Buxton, and Christophe Laudemaiel, the ship offers an exquisite olfactory voyage, presenting guests with an unparalleled oceanic sanctuary.
The Enchanting Pool Deck
The heart of leisure on the Silver Nova lies within the captivating pool deck, defined by its extraordinary horseshoe design affording unobstructed 270˚ vistas of the world’s most remarkable destinations.
This expanse, adorned with abundant sunbeds for every guest, boasts an upper-level sun deck, offering an oasis of serene relaxation accompanied by sweeping panoramic views. The pièce de résistance is the Cliff Whirlpool, an infinity-edged glass-fronted whirlpool, which transforms the pool deck into a realm of boundless serenity and indulgence.
A Global Odyssey of Luxury
The Silver Nova extends an invitation to traverse the globe, whisking guests away to some of the world’s most breathtaking locales. Following its maiden voyage, the ship will bask in the Mediterranean summer before embarking on voyages to the Caribbean and South America in November.
A spectacular highlight is the 71-day Grand Voyage of South America, commencing on January 4, 2024. This voyage promises an exploration of 38 destinations spanning 18 countries, taking travellers from the majesty of Alaska to the allure of Asia and the enchantment of Australia to the allure of New Zealand. With Silver Nova, luxury knows no bounds.
