Arriving summer 2020 - The most elegant ship ever to sail the Galapagos.
The first destination specific ship built by Silversea, Silver Origin is the height of experiential travel in the Galapagos. Never before have the islands been so superbly presented: a team of Ecuadorian national expert guides, the highest crew-to-guest ratio in the Galapagos, 8 Zodiacs, seamless hybrid spaces that offer an extraordinary voyage – for extraordinary people. All-suite accommodation, Horizon Balconies, butler service, sophisticated interiors, interactive basecamp, Ecuadorian inspired cuisine … no aspect of Silver Origin has been left to chance. The most environmentally conscious ship they have ever built, take a vertical leap and transform your idea of expedition luxury travel with Silver Origin.
The Galapagos Islands are the largest National Park in Ecuador and one of the most important protected natural areas in the world, so Silversea want to be sure their carbon footprint is well below standard. Silver Origin will be one of only two ships sailing in the Galapagos to feature dynamic positioning – meaning that no anchor to damage the delicate ecosystem of the sea bed. She will also be plastic free – guests will be gifted a metallic reusable bottle and reverse osmosis (whereby sea water is turned into drinking water) refilling stations will save at least 17,000 plastic bottles.
