A floating, five-star luxury resort, Silver Nova is the latest ship from Silversea launched August 2023, the leading ultra-luxury cruise line, and is the perfect ship for first-time cruisers.

Further enriching the on-board experience are the largest selection of bars, restaurants and lounges in ultra-luxury cruising with eight restaurants to suit all tastes. Silversea’s innovative culinary program, Sea and Land Taste (S.A.L.T.), comprises an on-board ecosystem of culinary discovery, immersive excursions ashore, food lectures, hands-on culinary experiences, and more.

Otium, the cruise line’s Roman-inspired wellness program, boasts all-new enhancements on Silver Nova, including brand-new in-suite experiences. Valuing wellness and indulgence over restriction, as the Romans did, Silver Nova’s Otium experiences are designed to offer sensory relaxation and enable guests to enjoy the aromas of essential oils from invigorating shower streamers. There’s also a collaboration with La Bottega and master perfumers such as Azzi Glasser, Mark Buxton and Christophe Laudemaiel, offering guests unparalleled luxury at sea.
