Silversea has taken delivery of their first-ever destination-specific ship, Silver Origin. An intimate ceremony was held at Dutch shipyard, De Hoop, on Wednesday 3rd June 2020 which marked the first in-person ship delivery in the cruise industry since the Coronavirus pandemic prompted a global lockdown.
Roberto Matinoli, President and Chief Executive Officer at Silversea said of the event, “The fact that this small shipyard in the Netherlands managed to complete our ship under incredible circumstances is proof of human resilience, determination and fine European craftsmanship, characteristics which are at the soul of Silversea.”
Silver Origin will soon sail to Ecuador and on to her new, permanent home in the Galápagos Islands, where she will sail year-round to unlock the charms of this unique destination in utmost luxury and comfort. Every element of the ship has been designed with the destination in mind and tailored to enhance the experience for travellers while fostering a deep sense of respect for this magnificent ecosystem and everything that inhabits it.
