Announcing Silver Origin
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 we have ever built, take a vertical leap and transform your idea of travel with Silver Origin.
Italian whispered luxury combined with amazing expedition experience will redefine luxury in the Galapagos. Led by our team of expert interior architects, Hirsch Bedner Associates, detailed destination awareness and state-of-the-art technology. From getting ready in the basecamp for a day of Zodiac exploration to cosying up with friends around the fire pit in the Explorer Lounge at the end of the day, Silver Origin offers immersion far beyond excursion. Hungry for more? Silver Origin’s two restaurants offer delicious local, national and international dishes to make your mouth water. Even better, it's all-inclusive.
Imagine taking a bath with a sea lion. Or transforming your suite at the touch of a button. With Silver Origin’s ocean-view bathtub, balcony showers and pioneering Horizon Balcony, seeing the Galapagos up close has never been easier. Designed by Giacomo Mortola and his firm GEM, the team behind Silver Muse, Silver Origin’s all-suite accommodation has been conceived with the unicity of the islands in mind. Not forgetting our superb butler service for every suite, regardless of category, Silver Origin is the definition of travelling deeper in luxury.
The Galapagos Islands are the largest National Park in Ecuador and one of the most important protected natural areas in the world, so we want to be sure our 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.
