Silversea Expedition’s new Silver Origin, launched in July 2020, is the most elegant ship to ever sail the region. The all-suite, 100-guest Silver Origin is the first ship in Silversea’s fleet designed specifically for a given destination and connects travellers to the Galapagos like never before. Built with the environment in mind, Silver Origin features a dynamic positioning system, used when the ship is positioned over delicate seabed eco-systems, to prevent the anchor from causing damage; incorporates in-suite freshwater purification systems that converts seawater into drinking water, thus drastically reducing the use of plastic onboard; and meets the highest standards of energy efficiency in the segment.
Enjoy a Galapagos Expedition to snorkel with sea lions and hike along lava tunnels and back to the beginning of time. Silversea takes you to the remote islands, whilst indulging you in the unrivalled all-suite comfort and elegant sophistication which has made us famous. Watch bellowing elephant bulls challenge each other in a spectacular display. Admire the courtship of a Blue-footed Booby. Step over iguanas basking in the sun. It is not only the abundance of wildlife, but their fearlessness that makes the Galápagos island cruise a nature lover’s dream.
