Silver Muse is the first in what will be a class of three ships, Silversea chairman Manfredi Lefebvre d'Ovidio said during a steel-cutting ceremony at Fincantieri's Sestri Ponente shipyard.

The 40,700gt Silver Muse is scheduled for delivery in April 2017.

Friday's ceremony in Genoa was attended by Fincantieri officials led by ceo Giuseppe Bono, who welcomed the return of Silversea's business.

The company's last newbuild, 2009's Silver Spirit, was built at Fincantieri's Ancona yard.
