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 will bring travellers to the Galapagos Islands from 18 July 2020.
“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’s president and CEO. “When Silver Origin welcomes guests in July 2020, 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.”
