Silver Origin By Silversea

The most elegant ship ever to sail the Galapagos

The first destination-specific ship built by Silversea, Silver Origin is the height of experiential travel in the Galapagos. Never have the islands been so superbly presented. All-suite accommodation, Horizon Balconies, butler service, sophisticated interiors, interactive basecamp, Ecuadorian-inspired cuisine … no aspect of Silver Origin has been left to chance.  The most environmentally conscious ship we have ever built. Take a leap and transform your idea of travel with Silver Origin.


Truly Built Around You

Not only is the Silver Origin built around you, but we have kept mindful travel at the forefront of her design. To see our Five Pillars, see below.




Protecting the Galapagos, today and tomorrow

In order for Silver Origin to have the lowest carbon footprint, we designed her to include state-of-the-art technology and a dynamic positioning system that protects the delicate seabed. We also made sure all suites feature a fresh water purification system that will significantly reduce plastic bottle usage. Finally, we created the Silversea Fund for the Galapagos; a fund dedicated to safeguarding the archipelago for generations to come.



Destination Onboard

Your destination begins on board

No matter where on the Silver Origin you are, the Galapagos is right there with you. No view is left unseen on the Silver Origin, the natural beauty of the archipelago is yours to admire. The ship makes this possible with floor-to-ceiling windows that extend throughout the ship, while the Observation & Stargazing Platform offers uninterrupted views. Never miss a thing and witness the archipelago from your suite, spot a sea lion on the shore from your glass horizon balcony, or private ocean-view shower!



Expedition Experience

Become an expedition expert

We know preparation and knowledge are key to enjoying the archipelago. This is why we ensure all our guides are not only experts in their field but certified by the National Park of the Galapagos. For the same reason, we are proud to introduce Basecamp. An innovative "knowledge lounge", Basecamp features materials and tools that provide a wealth of inside knowledge. Basecamp gives easy access to the Zodiac® deck. 



Authentic Local Culture

Authenticity is everything

Silver Origin provides only the most genuine culinary experience possible. We understand the love our guests feel for local customs and cuisine. In the kitchen, we bring them truly authentic Ecuadorian recipes using the freshest local ingredients, accompanied by the best regional wine. Experience our live gourmet preparation sessions and seminars, and learn to create the flavors Ecuador and the Galapagos have to offer.



Comfort And Service

The luxury you expect, the service you deserve

After a busy day of discovery, sink into luxury with the help of Silver Origin's careful and attentive crew. Enjoy the unparallel luxury and industry-leading personalized service that Silversea is famous for. The Silver Origin is the only ship in the entire Galapagos region to offer butler service in every suite. With the highest ratio of crew per guest in the area. We are happy to give our guests that personal touch that makes their stay on board as memorable as their visit to the islands.
