Replacing Silver Galapagos, which currently welcomes guests exclusively in the Galapagos Islands, Silversea’s new Silver Origin will be the most elegant ship to ever sail the region when it launches in July 2020. The all-suite, 100-guest Silver Origin will be the first ship in Silversea’s fleet designed specifically for a given destination and will connect travellers to the Galapagos like never before. Built with the environment in mind, Silver Origin will feature a dynamic positioning system, which will be used when the ship is positioned over delicate seabed ecosystems to prevent the anchor from causing damage; incorporate in-suite freshwater purification systems that convert seawater into drinking water, thus drastically reducing the use of plastic onboard; and meet the highest standards of energy efficiency in the segment.
As you would expect, these cruises fill up fast (up to a year in advance) so please contact Project Travel now on Tel: 01 – 210 8391 to discuss your dream destination and we will help you find the perfect voyage to suit your travel dates. We will also check for any special offers that may apply to ensure you get the best value possible.
Silversea Launches Fund to Support Conservation in the Galapagos
To safeguard the wellbeing of the Galapagos Islands for future generations, Silversea Cruises has launched a dedicated fund that will preserve the natural wonders of the archipelago.
By supporting a diverse selection of projects each year, the Silversea Fund will strengthen the balance between humans and nature in the Galapagos, as part of a long-term conservation strategy. In addition to benefiting regional conservation efforts and enhancing their connection with this unique destination, the fund’s donors will enjoy savings on Silversea’s voyages, as the cruise line will match guests’ contributions in the form of a Future Cruise Credit to underpin its commitment to the cause.
Established in partnership with Galapagos Conservancy – the only US-based organisation focused exclusively on protecting the Galapagos’ unique ecosystems and biological integrity – the Silversea Fund for the Galapagos will educate and support the archipelago’s local communities by financing projects related to youth empowerment; education and training; and science, technology and conservation.
The Silversea Fund will build on the cruise line’s existing efforts to make a positive impact on the natural and economic environment of the Galapagos Islands, including its contribution to the Floreana Island Ecological Restoration Project. Guests travelling aboard Silver Galapagos (and those travelling aboard Silver Origin from July 2020) can donate to the Silversea Fund for the Galapagos during their voyage. For donations of between US$500 and US$1,000 per suite, donors will receive a Future Cruise Credit in a matching amount that may be applied towards any future voyage aboard any ship in Silversea’s ultra-luxury fleet.
