Ponder no longer, the inspiration for your next cruise holiday revealed itself as it sailed into the peaceful blue shores of Darwin this week. Its name was Silver Muse.

While you were shaking off the last of that New Year’s Eve hangover on Wednesday (2 January), Silversea Cruises made its physical comeback in Australia after a decade-long absence with the arrival of Silver Muse.

The 596-passenger ship cruised into Darwin from Bali, where Northern Territorians likely marvelled at “one of the most luxurious, boutique vessels in the world”.


Silvesea Cruises’ Managing Director – Australia and New Zealand, Adam Armstrong, said Silver Muse‘s arrival is of particular significance because she’s the line’s newest (launched April 2017), largest and most luxurious vessel to call Australia home.

“We are absolutely thrilled that Silver Muse is in Australia, which is an arrival we have been eagerly awaiting for some time, and also reflects our strong commitment to the market.”

Silver Muse will spend a little more than a month in Australia, during which time she will take cruises across the Tasman to New Zealand. She will then depart on her Grand Asia Pacific Voyage in February, which travels to Tokyo.

From late November 2019 to March 2020, the ship will return to Australia for a four-month homeport.


Guests travelling onboard Silver Muse will have access to what the line described as “uncompromising levels of comfort, service and quality” through small-ship intimacy, spacious all-suite accommodation, outdoor spaces and comprehensive dining options.
