Silversea Cruises names ship in Lisbon

 Friday, April 1, 2022 


Silversea Cruises officially named its 10th ship, Silver Dawn, in Lisbon on March 31. Executives from Royal Caribbean Group, Silversea Cruises, and Fincantieri, as well as local dignitaries and guests, celebrated the milestone with a formal ceremony and gala dinner.  

The Silver Dawn becomes their 3rd new ship to debut in nine months.

The launch of Silver Dawn also marks the debut of Otium, travel’s most indulgent new wellness program, as well as the next iteration of Silversea’s S.A.L.T. culinary program, according to the company.

After Royal Caribbean Group’s customary bagpipe performance, which opened the formal naming ceremony, performers took to the stage, entertaining attendees with a performance that weaved a narrative from the 2021 launch of Silver Moon to the modern day debut of the Silver Dawn, the company said.

Singers performed the national anthems of the U.S.A., Italy, and Portugal, before a religious leader blessed the ship and dignitaries delivered speeches.

The newly named Godmother of Silver Dawn, Nilou Motamed is an influential food and travel editor, tastemaker, and television personality. She cut the ribbon to trigger a champagne bottle to smash on the ship’s hull, signalling the end of the ceremony.

The Silver Dawn departs on her inaugural voyage on April 1, sailing from Lisbon to Barcelona. She is scheduled to sail in the Mediterranean until November, when she will cross the Atlantic Ocean, via the Canary Islands, to offer Caribbean and Central America cruises.
