Silver Muse’s new top team draws on wealth of experience from across the line’s luxury vessels.
Ahead of its Christening on 19 April 2017, Silversea has unveiled details of the first crew that will provide a bespoke service for guests onboard Silver Muse in its inaugural season. Silver Muse will be led by Australian, Italian Captain, Alessandro Zanello, the youngest Officer ever to be appointed Captain on the Silversea fleet.
Captain Zanello has been a part of Silversea since 1999 and in that time has worked onboard all ships in the Silversea fleet. Silver Muse will be the second inaugural ship voyage Zanello has worked on during his 18 years with Silversea, having been second-in-command for the launch of Silver Spirit in 2009. The son of an Italian father and Australian mother, Alessandro spent many of his childhood holidays in Sydney, Australia.
The galley will be led by Executive Chef Anne-Mari Cornelius, who joined Silversea in 2005 and has worked onboard two Silver Whisper world cruises as Executive Chef. Cornelius will oversee all galley staff and be responsible for maintaining Silversea’s high culinary standards across the eight onboard restaurants.
Additionally, Cruise Director Jimmy Kovel will oversee activities and entertainment onboard the ship during its inaugural season. This includes culinary demonstrations and performances by the Voices of Silversea in the theatre, Venetian Lounge, and the smooth jazz and blues entertainment in the intimate Silver Note restaurant. Kovel has worked for Silversea since 2009 onboard Silver Shadow, Silver Cloud and Silver Wind.
Amber Wilson, Managing Director Asia Pacific, said: “As the launch of Silver Muse draws closer, we are delighted to reveal details of the dedicated and highly experienced crew who will welcome both new and returning Silversea guests on Silver Muse, offering an unparalleled level of personalised and polished service.”
Other key members of the Silver Muse team include Staff Captain, Sergio Topazio; Chief Engineer, Michele Barone and Hotel Director, Paolo Percivale.
Calling at 34 countries and 130 ports in 2017 alone, Silver Muse will redefine ocean travel, enhancing the small-ship intimacy with spacious all-suite accommodations that are the hallmarks of the Silversea experience. The addition of Silver Muse will expand Silversea’s fleet to nine ships and will, once again significantly raise the bar in the ultra-luxury cruise market.
