Silversea have gone above and beyond to create an atmosphere of understated luxury aboard their newest flagship, the Silver Muse and as she docked in Melbourne, we went along to see what all the fuss was about.
From the moment you step foot inside, one thing becomes apparent - this is a cruise ship like no other. The interiors are simple yet stylish and welcome guests to a relaxing and luxurious environment. The public areas such as the check in lobby, Dolce Vita, and the Panorama Lounge are spacious, well appointed and designed to relax the senses before you set sail. With a maximum capacity of 596, the spacious public areas serve their purpose of creating a relaxed environment where guests will not feel crowded or overwhelmed, an essential part of a relaxing cruising experience.
Cruising aboard the Silver Muse is a redefinition of what small ship ocean cruising can be and the experience offers a challenge to its competitors to step up their game. Even the cheapest staterooms will give you the feel of a luxury suite with beautiful bathrooms (complete with Bulgari amenities), large beds and a large living space. With the smallest rooms onboard measuring up at 31 metres squared, you will never feel cramped anywhere on the ship. Each room comes with its own dedicated butler who will be at your service throughout your journey to fulfil any requests that you may have.
One of the more important elements of any cruising experience is the dining and with 8 speciality dining options onboard there is more than enough choice to satisfy all travellers. There are only two restaurants that are not included in the all-inclusive on-board package, the gorgeous French eatery La Dame and dinner at the charming Japanese Kaiseki, and other than that all food and beverages are included while sailing. It’s two signature restaurants, Atlantide & Indochine, are simply breathtaking. serving a range of seafood and Asian fusion dishes respectively. Enjoying good food in an elegant surroundings are pivotal to the Silver Muse sailing experience.
Guests can enjoy a range of services while onboard including a fabulous top deck pool and Jacuzzi area which offers the perfect place for relaxation. State of the art fitness facilities, rejuvenating spa treatments and a whisky and cigar lounge are among the things that guests can enjoy aboard the Silver Muse. We also enjoyed the two stunning lounges, Panorama and Observation Library, which provide guests with a space to fully appreciate the atmosphere on this magnificent ship. The Venetian Lounge provides guests with a range of theatre shows and performance pieces, while the casino and games rooms offer another chance for guests to have fun.
With a staff to customer ratio that is simply unbeatable, the Silver Muse offers the very best of small ship ocean cruising and there is absolutely no excuse to not hop on board sometime in the very near future.
