Florida’s Port Everglades revealed it will welcome Silversea Cruises’ newest cruise ship Silver Muse on October 12-13, 2017, and continue to serve as the cruise line’s winter homeport for the next two years.
The announcement follows the agreement inked between Monaco-based Silversea Cruises and the Broward County Commission in Florida for an initial two-year period with the option to renew for an additional three years, with a maximum of twelve sailings annually.
“Silversea Cruises has been a valued customer of Port Everglades for many years, and with the agreement in place, we look forward to welcoming Silversea’s newest flagship Silver Muse when it makes its US debut this fall,” Steven Cernak, Port Everglades Chief Executive & Port Director, said.
Silversea Cruises has been sailing from Port Everglades since October 2000.
In addition to voyages of Silver Spirit, Silver Whisper and Silver Wind also sailing from Port Everglades, the 596-passenger Silver Muse is scheduled for five sailings next year, according to the port.
The construction of Silver Muse began at Fincantieri’s Sestri Ponente shipyard in Genoa in July 2015.
Launched in July 2016, the 40,700 gross ton ship is scheduled for delivery in May 2017, VesselsValue’s data shows.
