Silversea Cruises will return to service in the Galápagos Islands with its new ship Silver Origin, commencing 19 June 2021. The ultra-luxury ship arrived in San Cristóbal at the end of April.
Silver Origin will offer all-new itineraries which have been enriched to take guests deeper into the archipelago.
“Having worked exceptionally hard on our healthy return to service plan, we are delighted to be nearing the moment in which our extended family is reunited aboard our two new ships, Silver Origin and Silver Moon,” commented Roberto Martinoli, Silversea’s President and CEO.
“We extend our sincerest gratitude to the Ecuadorian Government and the Galápagos Government Council for their ongoing cooperation and their willingness to welcome cruising back to this remarkable archipelago. The first ship to join our fleet since Silversea Cruises joined the Royal Caribbean Group and our cruise line’s first destination-specific ship, Silver Origin is unique in her elegance.
“Following an extended period at home, our guests are eager to continue their discovery of our planet, and there are few destinations that inspire travellers with such unique natural beauty as the Galápagos Islands.”
Full vaccinations will be mandatory for guests and crew embarking Silver Origin, forming part of a comprehensive, multi-layered set of science-backed protocols that will help to safeguard the health and safety of guests, crew, and visited communities.
Silver Origin will sail on two alternating itineraries that incorporate five maiden calls, including the island of Santa Fe. Each itinerary will include calls in the iconic islands of Fernandina and Isabela – regularly described as the region’s must-visit destinations – and will each include enriched programmes ashore.
