(Sea and Land Taste), a culinary program that goes beyond a regular dining experience.S.A.L.T. starts on land where guests are taken on a shore excursion to personally purchase local ingredients. Their shopping is taken onboard to the S.A.L.T. lab where the ship’s culinary experts will teach them how to prepare the food.From there, they can enjoy a locally-sourced drink or two at the S.A.L.T. Bar before heading into the S.A.L.T. Kitchen to enjoy regional foods.The menu inside S.A.L.T Kitchen is ever-changing and inspired by the destinations the ship is visiting.Silversea said it’ll be the first time regional food has influenced a ship’s restaurant menu on this scale.La Dame will be larger to accommodate 50 guests.La Dame, the line’s signature restaurant, will also appear on Silver Moon, however, she’ll be larger to accommodate 50 guests and she’ll move to a higher Deck (up from four) in order to offer outdoor dining.Atlantide and Kaiseki will each undergo an extensive redesign, including the enlargement of Atlantide to seat 230 guests and an enhanced design for Kaiseki.Lounges and public spaces will also get a revamp, including Dolce Vita lounge, which will receive a new layout with the bar sitting in the centre of the venue. Connoisseur’s Corner will be completely re-imagined to incorporate a new Wintergarden area, while the pool deck will receive a U-shaped bar area and extra seating.“Silver Moon will raise the bar in ultra-luxury travel, unlocking immersive experiences for our guests in whispered luxury.” Barbara Muckermann, Silversea Cruises Chief Marketing Officer WHERE & WHEN CAN I GET ONBOARD?Silver Moon‘s inaugural voyage will depart on 6 August. She’ll travel for 11 days from Trieste to Rome.Guests keen to be first to see the ship will need to get in quick as suites won’t be available for long.Following her first journey, Silver Moon will join four other Silversea ships to spend the summer cruising the Mediterranean. She’ll then head across the Atlantic mid-November 2020 for a season sailing around the Caribbean islands.The first-year program also includes the Grand South America 2021 itinerary travelling across Central and South America from 7 January.
