Silver Ray: New luxury ship arriving in summer 2024


Silver Ray, the second Nova class ship from Silversea, is due to arrive in summer 2024 and begin a series of sailings to some of the most desirable seaside cities in the Mediterranean and beyond.

Silver Ray mirrors the innovations introduced on its sister ship, the head-turning Silver Nova, including a pioneering, asymmetrical design and extraordinary use of glass in both public areas and in suite for uninterrupted views. Upon launch, Silver Ray will be one of the most spacious ships ever built, offering an exceptionally high space-to-guest ratio.

Like its sibling, every stateroom is a suite and every suite has a balcony. Ray is a green ship — the new Evolution class is leading a new generation of Silversea ships into sustainable cruising, respecting the fragile ecosystems of the remote and remarkable destinations it calls on.

The ship's interior is designed with an emphasis on elegance and luxury, with public spaces oriented toward the sea or the destination, providing an immersive experience that differs from traditional luxury ships. And the hallmarks of a Silversea sailing — high level of service and fine dining — will be a centerpiece of Silver Ray. 

Where Silver Ray sails

Booking is now open for Silver Ray. The ship offers a wide variety of exquisite sailings — with itineraries ranging from 11 to 71 nights — mostly around the Mediterranean but also in the Caribbean and South America.

Ports on tap include Funchal, Cadiz, Casablanca, Costa del Sol, Mallorca, Bordeaux, Venice, Santorini, Kotor, Dubrovnik, Istanbul, Monte Carlo, Buenos Aires, Rio de Janeiro, Lima (Callao), Grand Turk, San Juan, Curacao, Bonaire and more. 

Cruises on this ship


Silver Ray's fares include shipboard gratuities, all beverages — including wines and champagne — butlers in all suites and special amenities such as free Wi-Fi and more. 


Highlights aboard Silver Ray will include the following:

The Marquee affords commanding views of the sea from the ship's port side. It's an al fresco dining venue that hosts The Grill aka Hot Rocks (try a self-prepared “hot rock” steak for dinner) and Spaccanapoli, an Italian pizzeria open for lunch and dinner.

Otium Spa is the go-to place for beauty and wellness treatments. The spa offers a series of treatment rooms, changing areas, steam rooms, dry saunas and a therapy pool overlooking the ocean, along with a beauty salon and a fitness center. The Otium concept is not confined to the spa — it also applies to in-suite sleeping, bathing, comfort food and balcony experiences. 

The Dusk Bar is an open-air sky bar at the back of the ship positioned on the port side.

The Observation Lounge at the forward of the ship is a great place to strike up conversations with fellow guests and watch the passing seascapes.

Dress code

Silversea has set down dress code guidelines for guests that it calls “elegant casual.” For men, a nice shirt (not a T-shirt) is recommended, though jackets aren’t required at dinner (except if you're dining at La Dame). For women, the guidelines call for “trousers, blouses, skirts or casual dresses.” Cruises longer than seven nights have at least one “formal optional” evening, where men can wear a dark suit with tie, dinner jacket or tuxedo and women can choose an evening or cocktail dress.

Fun facts

Silver Ray is the industry's second hybrid cruise vessel (following Silver Nova) with zero emissions at port. The ship operates on a hybrid LNG and marine gas oil dual-fuel system, supplemented by a large bank of batteries for additional power when needed. The ship is also entirely self-sufficient in collecting and treating water, underlining its commitment to sustainability​​.
