Silver Origin floats out ahead of Galapagos debut

Silversea’s first-ever destination-specific ship - Silver Origin - has floated out of the De Hoop shipyard in Lobith, the Netherlands.

The all-suite, 100-guest ship touched water for the first time on December 30th, and Silversea has commenced the countdown for the vessel’s inaugural season.

When Silver Origin welcomes travellers in the Galapagos Islands from July 8th, the line claims she will be the most elegant ship to ever sail the region. 

“This is an important milestone for our cruise line; it takes us one step closer to strengthening our industry-leading offering in the Galapagos further still,” says Roberto Martinoli, Silversea chief executive.

“When Silver Origin welcomes guests in July, the ship will be the most elegant vessel to ever sail in the Galapagos region.

“While completing the final stages of Silver Origin’s construction, ensuring that the ship surpasses Silversea’s trademark level of comfort, we are also readying our expedition team, who will deliver an enriching and memorable expedition experience for our guests.”
