Mediterranean cruise with Silversea

With the introduction of its newest ship , Silver Muse, Silversea has lifted the bar for luxury cruising even higher. You can experience it on a bespoke Wine Selectors’ adventure in 2018.

When the first Silversea ship was launched over 20 years ago, owner Antonio Lefebvre d’Ovidio advised his son, Manfredi, to always keep their family values and traditions close to his heart and not be swayed by ephemeral trends.

Now Chairman of Silversea Cruises, Manfredi heeded his father’s words and is incredibly proud of Silversea’s current status as a leader in luxury travel.

So it is with immense pleasure that Manfredi introduces the newest ship, Silver Muse.

A work of art

A divine inspirational work of art of the highest order, Silver Muse sees the Silversea fleet expanded to nine ships and the bar in the intimate-luxury cruising market raised to its highest level yet.

Boutique in size, accommodating 596 guests, Silver Muse can visit ports that larger ships simply cannot access, and retains an intimate, cosy, home away from home feeling. Yet she is also large enough to offer the superlative quality of luxury service and options for which Silversea are famous.

While the destinations Silver Muse visits offer plenty of opportunities for active exploration, back on board, exclusive new additions will ensure you’re sailing in ultimate luxury and relaxation.

Bespoke savoir beds

They were the choice of Sir Winston Churchill, Giacomo Puccini and Marilyn Monroe, and now Savoir Beds will ensure guests sailing in the Owner, Royal and Grand suites of Silver Muse enjoy a superb night’s sleep, too. Savoir’s handmade bespoke mattresses and toppers, created using the finest natural materials and skilled craftsmanship, offer a variation in support from soft to firm, customisable to guest preference. With their cloud-like comfort, you’ll never want your trip to end!

Spa sanctuary

Silversea has redefined beauty and wellness on board Silver Muse with the introduction of Zàgara Beauty Spa – a uniquely artistic and holistic sensory experience.

Zàgara melds its beautiful Italian heritage with a 360º mind and body philosophy to evoke awareness and nurture well-being. A sanctuary of leisure and comfort, this elegant respite is the gateway to serenity. Complementing a choreographed menu of services that feature award-winning products and innovation, the unique Zàgara concept also encourages guests to create their own spa experience. Blending artistry through a myriad of visual and experiential elements with holistic therapies, Zàgara promises peace and beauty at every touch point.

Be immersed in art

Another exclusive to Silver Muse is the all-new Arts Café. Evoking the ambience of an art gallery, in this unique space, guests are able to relax and unwind, surrounded by some of the most exquisite pieces of art.

The featured exhibitions are varied, exciting and frequently changing, including paintings and sculptures from a broad range of talented artists.

The venue’s distinctive design offers a relaxing getaway with daytime cuisine in the form of a café and deli-bar. Come early evening, the venue transforms into a lively, evening cocktail lounge, where guests can retreat to one of the comfortable chairs, grab a drink and relax, while taking in the incredible view.

Exquisite attention to detail

While iconic destinations and grand vistas are obviously impressive, often its the smallest details that have the biggest impact. Silver Muse’s exceptional guest-to-staff ratio, including butlers in every suite, means that someone is always on hand to look after the details, so you don’t have to.

As Manfredi Lefebvre d’Ovidio says, “We believe that Silver Muse is quite simply, our best ship ever.”

Dubai | Utopia
Words by Mark Hughes on 12 Jan 2015
In the history of civilisation, it is fair to say there has never been as much economic and structural growth as has occurred in the United Arab Emirates in the past 40-odd years. From virtual villages, Emirs such as Abu Dhabi, and in particular, Dubai, have become the new business centres of the world, the must visit stop-over destination for global travellers and with that, a new mecca for food. Just a century ago, Dubai was a small community of a few thousand, who survived by fishing and pearling Dubai Creek, a 14 kilometre inlet of the Arabian Sea. The discovery of oil in the region in the 1960s saw unprecedented wealth f lood the seven emirs of the UAE. But it has been how these finances have been spent that has set the Emirates apart and facilitated its amazing transformation. It was the foresight of Sheikh Rashid bin Saeed Al Maktoum, Prime Minister of the UAE and ruler of Dubai from 1958 until his death in 1990, to develop the region’s economy to prosper once the oil has dried up. The Dubai of today is testimony to the fact his vision has been realised. These days oil production accounts for just six per cent of GDP, with business, trade and tourism raking in over half the Emirates income. One of the biggest incentives for business is its centre point in world trade, between east and west, north and south, and for the businessman looking to make a fortune, the fact that there is no income tax, is a massive lure. Quite simply, what you earn is what you get! And with many companies providing accommodation and expenses, you can see why Dubai has such a large ex-pat community. City of Ests Dubai is the city of ‘ests’ – the bigg-est such as the massive Dubai Mall, the tall-est – Burj Khalifa, at 830 metres the world’s tallest man-made structure, and whose viewing platform on 124th f loor is the highest anywhere, and a must-visit in this city of stunning architecture. While Dubai sits on the edge of the mystical Arabian Desert, it has been transformed into an oasis with meticulously maintained luscious parks and gardens throughout the city. Ninety-three percent of the water is from massive desalination plants, irrigation is recycled sewerage. The city is fastidiously clean and organised with a modern railway system, cheap and reliable taxis, whose drivers all speak English and, most noticeable of all, it is extremely safe. Due to the fact there are severe punishments for breaking the law, crime rates are low (less than 1%). In fact, Interpol has rated Dubai as the safest city in the world for the past decade. All this means it is ideal for the discerning tourist.
