On 30th December 2019, Silversea’s first-ever destination specific ship, Silver Origin, touched water for the first time. An all-suite vessel with capacity to welcome 100 guests, Silver Origin will welcome travellers on Galapagos Islands cruises from July 2020.
On board, you’ll find the highest crew-to-guest ratio in the Galapagos. Part of the ship’s crew will be a team of expedition experts that will lead immersive shore experiences for guests. In addition to guided Zodiac tours, excursions, hikes and nature walks ashore – all of which are included in the fare – these passionate and knowledgeable professionals will offer on board lectures, discussions and recaps in Silver Origin’s innovative Basecamp.
“This is an important milestone for our cruise line; it takes us one step closer to strengthening our industry-leading offering in the Galapagos further still,” said Roberto Martinoli, Silversea’s President and CEO.
“When Silver Origin welcomes guests in July 2020, the ship will be the most elegant vessel to ever sail in the Galapagos region. While completing the final stages of Silver Origin’s construction, ensuring that the ship surpasses Silversea’s trademark level of comfort, we are also readying our Expedition Team, who will deliver an enriching and memorable expedition experience for our guests.”
