Silver Muse christening in Monaco

An exciting day for Silversea as their newest ultra-luxury cruise ship was christened by god mother, 17-year old Costanza Lefebrvre, at a glittering ceremony in Monaco. Costanza, daughter of Silversea Chairman Manfredi Lefebvre d’Ovidio did the honours, breaking a bottle of Champagne over the bow of the beautiful new ship.

The sun was shining early in the day, but as the Silver Muse christening got underway in the evening the heavens opened. It did’t dampen the mood at the historic celebration which was hosted by Manfredi Lefebvre d’Ovidio and attended by Prince Albert II of Monaco.
