The unveiling of the Orient Express Silenseas yacht was announced by hospitality giant Accor, the owner of the illustrious Orient Express brand, on Thursday. The approximately 720-foot yacht, which draws inspiration from the "golden age of the French Riviera," will provide passengers with an unmatched level of luxury and sophistication.

According to Guillaume de Saint Lager, Vice President of the Orient Express brand at Accor, the yacht will sail itineraries in the Mediterranean in the summer and the Caribbean in the winter, "punctuated by special experiences to discover extraordinary destinations dedicated to art, culture, and nature." The Orient Express Silenseas will have two pools, a speakeasy bar, two restaurants, a "Amphitheatre-Cabaret" for live acts, a private recording studio, 54 rooms averaging 70 square meters, a 1,415 square meter Presidential Suite, spa services, and meditation sessions.

The ship will promote sustainability in addition to providing opulent luxuries. The French shipyard Chantiers de l'Atlantique will construct the Orient Express Silenseas, which will run on a combination of cleaner-burning liquefied natural gas and wind energy.

By bringing the experience and excellence of luxury travel to the world's most stunning seas, Accor's introduction of the Orient Express Silenseas boat ushers in a new era in the brand's history. The ship will provide visitors with an exceptional and one-of-a-kind experience that will transport them back to the heyday of legendary voyages. The options for luxury travel with the Orient Express name are virtually limitless, especially given that Accor also has plans to introduce Orient Express hotels and a revamp of the opulent train.
