Entering the Balsorano Owner's Suite, #944, on Silversea Cruises' luxurious new 596-passenger Silver Muse, is akin to coming home, particularly if you're Manfredi Lefebvre, the line's owner.
But for guests, it's a bit of a glimpse into Lefebvre's world. Inside the front door is this owner's comfortable leather lounge chair and ottoman. On the wall hangs a portrait of Lefebvre himself.
Spacious Living Room and Dining Area
Guests travel down a short corridor to reach the main living space. It's best described as classic and sophisticated, yet also airy and modern at the same time. It resembles a stylish apartment.
Adjacent to the dining table is a pantry area, complete with an illy Espresso machine, refrigerator and bar set-up, stocked with the guest's favorite beverage preferences. A dedicated butler stands ready to assist.
We liked the huge, curved and shiny sculpture that adorns the dining room table, and that guests can dine and watch their favorite show or movie at the same time, thanks to the wall-mounted flat-screen TV on the wall near the table.
Outside is a private teak veranda, easily accessible from two sets of sliding glass doors from both the living and the dining areas respectively.
The interior living room is roomy. It has a full wall of bookshelves and cabinetry as well as another large wall-mounted TV. Comfortable seating includes a large sofa and two chairs.
Guests receive access to an interactive media library. They also have free WiFi and use of a Bose Sound Touch 30 with Bluetooth connectivity and an iHome radio/alarm. Techies will appreciate the wall-mounted USB-C mobile device chargers.
Luxurious Master Bedroom
Adjacent to the living area is the adjacent master bedroom with a king bed; it can be converted to two twins.The bedroom also has its own wall-mounted, 42" flat-screen TV.
The bed's hand-made Savoir mattress has a horse hair topper. The bedding set-up includes a down duvet cover (s) and Pratesi fine linens. Guests also can choose their favorite pillows from a pillow menu.
Nearby is a huge walk-in closet with personal safe and a vanity table with hair dryer. For their use onboard, guests can don plush Etro bathrobes and slippers.
The marbled master bathroom is incredibly spacious. Guests will find a shower area with seat; a separate area with toilet and bidet; a full sized soaking tub; lighted display shelves for toiletries; and a vanity with sizable mirrors and dual sinks.
Guests can select Bvlgari bath amenities or other European brands.
The one-bedroom space ranges from 1,281 square feet to 1,389 square feet including the veranda. The difference in space between various units is the entry space. It doesn't impact the size of overall living space.
The Owner's Suite has a two-bedroom option with additional twin beds or a queen-sized bed.
