The suites on the Silver Muse are the most luxurious to hit the market yet. Starting at 400 square feet, each suite features a spacious sitting area, a private veranda, and a personal butler. Bathrooms feature a separate shower and bath with a rainfall shower head and your choice of European bath products. Each suite has a number of North American and European electrical outlets, as well as USB ports for charging small electronics. Passengers in balcony suites have access to one hour of complimentary WiFi per day, an amount that increases with higher categories of suite.
Dining & Gastronomy
The Silver Muse offers a revolutionary eight themed restaurants and no main dining area. Choose from classic continental fare three meals a day at the popular Atlantide, sushi for lunch and extravagant Japanese preparations for dinner at Kaiseki, and Silversea's signature La Dame, a partnership with Relais & Chateaux, featuring rich French cuisine. One innovative dining venue is the Arts Café, a funky, colorful café-cum-art gallery serving small bites with high-end paintings and sculptures on display. But make your dining plans carefully – not every restaurant is open for every meal, and dinners at Kaiseki and La Dame are not included in your cruise fare.
Entertainment and Activities
While the destinations visited stand at the forefront of any Silversea cruise, life onboard is not to be underestimated. A plethora of bars and lounges invite passengers to get to know one another over a coffee or a cocktail, and with all but the most top-shelf spirits included in the cruise fare, there's no need to worry about who's paying for what. Solo vocalists and regional entertainment troupes feature prominently in the Venetian Lounge, open for evening entertainment. And the indulgent Zagara Spa offers a variety of rejuvenating treatments and services, including acupuncture therapy, Botox treatments, and a thalassotherapy pool.
The Silver Muse is the first Silversea cruise ship to include a children's club. Though the atmosphere is definitely adult, well-behaved children over 6 months of age are welcome to travel with their parents, and if 12 children or more sign up for a cruise, a dedicated counselor will join the sailing.
The Silver Muse has a three-tiered dress code, with each evening's dress code posted in the morning bulletin. Daytime wear is casual, though some passengers aim for more of an elegant casual rather than resort fair. Informal dress usually involves slacks or skirts with a nice blouse or dinner jacket, and on formal nights, women wear cocktail dresses or evening gowns, while men typically wear a suit and tie or a tuxedo.
