Silver Ray shines for Silversea

The cruise line's newest ship has floated out in the Netherlands

SILVERSEA has taken delivery of Silver Ray, the second ship in its Nova class, with executives from parent company Royal Caribbean Group (RCG) and shipyard Meyer Werft celebrating the occasion.

Directors from both companies, including RCG President & Chief Executive Officer Jason Liberty and new Silversea President Bert Hernandez, celebrated Ray’s official handover in Eemshaven, with Meyer Group Chair Bernard Meyer and Chief Executive Bernd Eikens, as attendees participated in storied maritime traditions, such as the flag-changing and signing ceremony.

“We are thrilled to take delivery of Silver Ray, the newest ultra-luxury and expedition jewel in Royal Caribbean Group’s game-changing fleet,” Liberty said.

“We are fortunate to have the best people working together to dream and create unforgettable experiences for our guests, including the Meyer Werft shipyard team, whose partnership has enabled us to continue pushing boundaries.

“Delivering the best vacation experiences responsibly is at the heart of everything we do.”

Ray is set to embark on her maiden voyage from Lisbon on 15 June, spending her inaugural season in the Mediterranean before cross the Atlantic to the Americas in December.
