The new Silver Nova from Silversea Cruises will feature a total of eight dining venues that promise to "represent the latest iteration of Silversea’s unique take on luxury,” according to Barbara Muckermann, chief commercial officer of Silversea Cruises.
“From S.A.L.T. Kitchen — the first large-scale regional restaurant at sea — to The Marquee on deck 10, each of Silver Nova’s restaurants will benefit from innovative design solutions that will bring the destination into view like never before,” she said. “Food and drink have long been core to the cruise experience for our guests; with Silver Nova, we are enriching Silversea’s trademark dining experiences — which are among the finest at sea.”
Indoor Dining: Atlantide, S.A.L.T. Kitchen, La Dame, Kaiseki and Silver Note
Serving as the ship’s spacious main dining room will be the 270-seat Atlantide, open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Radiating from a vibrant central chandelier will be an updated layout dotted with “fluted glass, metal trim and natural stone flooring,” maintaining the venue’s overall warm aesthetic.
First introduced on Silver Moon, S.A.L.T. Kitchen will be reprised as a more intimate 160-guest restaurant showcasing regional cuisine with an updated vibe and seating for larger social groups.
High ceilings and natural light will illuminate worldwide culinary-themed artwork, and menus will list two concepts: “Terrain” dishes inspired by the port of call, and “Voyage” for “the best recipes of each voyage.”
Also returning is La Dame, the line’s specialty French restaurant with a capacity for 70 diners. The interiors will feature alternating bright and dark tones, Lalique crystal panels and a Hirondelles crystal chandelier. Views will be emphasized through an open entranceway and expansive windows.
Kaiseki will offer specialty Asian cuisine to 40 guests in a Japanese-inspired venue decorated with a combination of washi paper, marble and traditional woods. Besides Japanese food, Vietnamese, Thai, Indian, Korean and Chinese flavors will also be highlighted.
And Silver Note will take its visual cues from 1920s jazz clubs befitting the fine bites served to 54 patrons while live piano music plays on. The dark moody setting will also include an inviting bar for after-dinner drinks.
Outdoor Dining: La Terraza, The Marquee and Arts Cafe
Guest-favorite La Terraza will accommodate up to 340 patrons for buffet service at breakfast and lunch, along with a full-service dinner. Inside seating will spill out for 90 diners desiring al fresco meals out on the terrace.
“Silver Nova’s asymmetrical design has enabled the creation of a new shape for La Terrazza: the venue will have a curved layout on the port side, while running to the ship’s aft on the starboard side,” according to the line.
Also outside will be The Marquee and its casual poolside seating for 220 cruisers, as well as a pair of eateries: The Grill, for the line’s signature “hot rocks” cooking experience, and Spaccanapoli, for pizza.
As a bonus, the 70-guest Arts Cafe will be relocated to the center of the ship for scenic vistas from a double-decker atrium in which to enjoy snacks and libations throughout the day.
