Silver Origin: Eco-conscious visits to the Galapagos


Silversea welcomed Silver Origin to its fleet in June 2021. The luxury expedition vessel was designed specifically for the Galapagos with a design that focuses on sustainability and a smaller carbon footprint for sailing in those protected waters.

Being eco-conscious is important, but Silversea adds a level of style and comfort rarely seen on expedition ships. Silver Origin maintains the all-suite configuration of larger Silversea ships, though with fewer suites. One result is more personalized service, with a nearly 1-to-1 ratio between guests and crew members. 

Dining in The Restaurant or in the Grill features fresh ingredients with the flavors of Ecuador as well as other cuisines.

The destination, of course, is at the center of this cruise experience. Silversea has created BaseCamp, a knowledge center for passengers. Guides used for expeditions are licensed by the Ecuadorian National Park of the Galapagos.

Where Silver Origin sails

Silver Origin sails through the Galapagos year round. Whether you enjoy hiking, snorkeling or kayaking, you can hop into a Zodiac to spend hours exploring the islands. Or choose a Zodiac cruise with a naturalist so you get a seaside view of the islands. The fascinating flora and fauna of this archipelago are waiting for you.
