Silversea’s first-ever destination-specific shipSilver Originhas floated out of the De Hoop shipyard in Lobith, the Netherlands. 

The all-suite, 100-guest ship touched water for the first time in December and Silversea has commenced the countdown for the vessel’s inaugural season when Silver Origin welcomes travellers in the Galapagos Islands from 18th July.  

Part of the ship’s crew, a team of expedition experts will lead immersive shore experiences for guests. In addition to guided Zodiac excursions, hikes, and nature walks ashore—all of which are included in the fare—these knowledgeable professionals will offer onboard lectures, discussions and recaps in Silver Origin’s innovative Basecamp.
