Silver Nova & Ray

With Silver Nova having joined the fleet in 2023 and Silver Ray launching in 2024, both ships reflect an exciting evolution of the Silversea product, featuring hybrid technology, sumptuous suites and the largest capacity of any Silversea ship to date.

What we love

The Nova Class ships will use a trio of power sources, with dual fuel engines that use LNG as their main fuel, battery technology and fuel cells, which will allow the ships to operate emissions-free while in port - an industry first. Butler service is included for every suite and you can expect spacious accommodation, including aft suites with panoramic 270-degree views, plus an outstanding array of dining options.

Silver Nova & Ray bring a fresh new look to Silversea's familiar line-up of outstanding dining venues, with eight restaurants to choose from, whilst retaining the easy open seating style that has always been so popular.

S.A.L.T. Kitchen

The S.A.L.T. Kitchen serves an ever-changing menu of locally-inspired dishes, using fresh ingredients sourced by the chefs from markets and suppliers during the course of your cruise. You will also be able to roll up your sleeves for a true hands-on cookery experience in the S.A.L.T. Lab test kitchen.


An elegant bar and grill seating 270 guests for dinner with a menu of exquisite seafood and mouth-watering steaks.

La Terrazza

This is a popular choice on the existing fleet, open throughout the day and showcasing regional cuisine from around Italy, with floor-to-ceiling windows and a large outdoor terrace.

The Grill

Offering casual dining during the day, The Grill is transformed in the evening to a wonderful al fresco restaurant that offers you the chance to cook your meal to your liking at your table on a volcanic lava stone. The Grill is part of Silver Nova's stunning new open air dining area, The Marquee, together with Spaccanapoli.

La Dame

At this intimate and quintessentially Parisian venue, fine wines are complemented by a bespoke menu embodying the gastronomic traditions of France. Demand is high and a small charge applies.


Open for lunch and dinner, Kaiseki offers Japanese cuisine with balanced menus of sushi, sashimi and other raw Asian-inspired dishes during the day, and theatrical teppenyaki in the evening, when a small charge applies. On Silver Nova, Kaiseki will also serve cuisine from other parts of Asia, including Korea, Vietnam, Thailand and India.


With relaxed all day dining, this venue is the place to go for a casual atmosphere and authentic Italian pizza, and is housed within The Marquee.

Silver Note

Open in the evening only, here you can enjoy small tapas-style dishes while a jazz and blues band plays.

Bars and lounges

Silver Nova - La Dolce Vita

With some old favourites and a couple of new or reimagined venues, there is an abundance of choice onboard. Every locale is elegant, thoughtfully designed and unique so wherever the mood takes you, there will be something that takes your fancy.

For a light and airy brand new venue at the heart of the ship, visit The Shelter which is perfect for an expertly mixed pre-dinner cocktail. Head up to The Dusk Bar on Deck 10 for panoramic views and comfortable open-air seating where you can while away the hours whilst enjoying endless ocean vistas. The Venetian Lounge is the place to be for evening shows and musical performances or swing by the reimagined Dolce Vita for relaxed conversation around the new elegant central bar.
