This all new purpose-built ship will begin sailing the Galapagos Islands during the Summer 2020. Holding just 100 passengers, this all-suite and all-balcony luxury expedition ship will be staffed by experts certified by the National Park of Galapagos who will give guests daily presentations, lectures, and videos about the islands.

Guests will enjoy 8 Zodiacs to ensure smooth and easy access to the islands. With a high  overall passenger to crew ratio of 1: 1.16 (the best in the Galapagos) and a small 1: 10 guide to guest ratio for more intimate exploration.

All suites have a balcony and are spacious. There are eight suite configurations for guests to selection from. The interior design of Silver Origin is inspired by the understated Italian elegance that pervades Silversea’s fleet of intimate ships. Yet, it will also take influence from the Galapagos’ unique natural environment to strengthen guests’ engagement with the destination, with each space enhancing the experience. Bright, colorful motifs and regional materials will accentuate the design.

In addition the warm and intimate interiors, guests will be served authentic local cuisine prepared by expert Ecuadorian chefs. 

Respect for the Environment

Sailing in one of the most environmental sensitive areas, the Silver Origin will be very environmentally sensitive. It will be one of only two ships that is dynamically positioned which means no anchors will be deployed which could damage the delicate ecosystem. The Silver Origin will also be plastic free. All guests will be given metallic reusable bottles with several refilling stations onboard.

Bookings will open up on May 29, 2019 for sailings starting June 27  2020.
