SILVER ORIGIN

Designed for the Galรกpagos, built around you


A WARM WELCOME TO THE GALÁPAGOS We would like to welcome you to the magical archipelago of the Galápagos. In the five years our guests have been traveling these islands, we have had the rare opportunity of understanding how to make travel here special. Though we learned a lot from exploring the islands over the years, we gained the most valuable knowledge about sailing the Galápagos from our fellow travelers. For our guests, luxury cruising here is about much more than the utmost in comfort, style and service. It is about living sustainably, recognizing the authentic character of the Galápagos and paying careful attention to the needs of the inhabitants of the archipelago. From the islands’ volcanic origins to its present-day unique status as a marine reserve and “living museum”, you will see why this wonderous place inspired Darwin’s Theory of Evolution after his visit in 1835. You will learn about the incredible diversity of Ecuadorian food and culture, and gain exclusive access to insider knowledge about the islands’ ecosystem and how it has evolved to be such a delicate and magical place.


SILVER ORIGIN IS TRULY BUILT AROUND YOU Over the years, our guests have asked us for only the most authentic Galápagos experience. Enter the Silver Origin, our very first ship created entirely for a specific destination. We took what we learned from our guests and the singular geography and character of the Galápagos, and designed an entirely new kind of ship, from the water up. Our guests’ experiences have led directly to the mindful design and features of this unique class of vessel, including a new and innovative venue, Basecamp, where you’ll be able to immerse yourself in the destination before you even leave the ship. You will also be able to experience authentic Ecuadorian cuisine onboard as well as enjoy breathtaking views throughout, thanks to the ship’s floor-to-ceiling windows. And finally, Silver Origin features a brand new design that prizes efficiency and minimizes the ship’s impact on the delicate ecosystem of this incredible archipelago.


Five years of sailing the Galápagos with our guests have taught us so much. We’ve adopted the following 5 pillars to create Silver Origin.

Galápagos, by Steve McCurry


n.1 / Sustainability

PROTECTING THE GALÁPAGOS, TODAY AND TOMORROW Roberto Martinoli, President & CEO, Silversea Cruises It is vital we all get to enjoy the Galápagos. We know it is important to protect this fragile ecosystem and leave it as untouched as possible, while contributing to its preservation. Our guests are also more and more attentive to the impact their travel has on the planet and share our desire to make our travel as ecologically sound as possible. Silver Origin has been designed with the environment in mind. With state-of-the-art technology and solutions adopted explicitly for sailing here, the ship’s footprint is minimal, and includes a dynamic positioning system that keeps her stationary without needing an anchor, protecting the delicate seabed and underwater flora and fauna. And thanks to a new hull design and advanced propulsion system, Silver Origin will meet or exceed only the highest standards of energy efficiency, while all suites feature a fresh water purification system that significantly reduces plastic bottle usage. As education is often cited as the best way to encourage proper conservation, we created the Silversea Fund for the Galápagos. Dedicated to safeguarding the archipelago through innovative educational projects, the fund is a big part of our commitment to keep the islands as pristine as possible, for generations to come.


n.2 / Destination onboard

YOUR DESTINATION BEGINS ON BOARD Fernando Delgado, Vice-President and General Manager, Silversea Cruises Ecuador The natural beauty of the Galápagos Islands makes it one of the best cruise destinations in the world, and we have had the privilege of hosting numerous guests over the years. We learned they want to stay immersed in these magnificent islands, even while on the ship. As I have been in and around the archipelago for the past 20 years, I feel every moment aboard should allow all our guests to take in the wonder and magic of this singular destination.

Observation Lounge

Therefore we gave our design team the brief of making sure our guests could enjoy as many bright, open spaces aboard Silver Origin as possible. The ship features 24-hour sweeping views over the Galápagos, thanks to large floor-to-ceiling windows that extend throughout the ship, meaning the islands are with you while you eat, sleep and relax. The Observation & Stargazing Platform offers uninterrupted views, which follow you to your suite, from where you just might spot a sea lion relaxing on shore through the glass horizon balcony or private ocean-view shower. No matter where you are on Silver Origin, you will feel like the Galápagos is right there with you.

Explorer Lounge


n.3 / Expedition experience

BECOME AN EXPEDITION EXPERT Xavier Garcia, Expedition Leader, Silver Galápagos We know you are interested in learning everything you can about the Galápagos, before and during your cruise. Our guests have told us the ship is their preferred starting point for the experience and that preparation is key to enjoying the archipelago, as they are hungry for as much knowledge as possible before they go ashore. This is why we ensure all our guides are experts in their field and are certified by the National Park of the Galápagos. As a naturalist born on the archipelago, I am as keen as they are to show you all the wonders of our islands, so we are proud to launch a brand new type of space on Silver Origin: Basecamp. A welcoming and innovative “knowledge lounge”, it features all the wonder and history of the archipelago, with materials and tools that provide you with a wealth of inside knowledge. Our qualified guides - more per guest than any ship in the area - are also here for you at any time during your stay, to prepare you for your magical adventures on shore. Basecamp opens out directly onto our marina, providing easy, seamless access to our numerous Zodiacs®. In fact, with the most Zodiacs® per guest in the entire region, Silver Origin provides the most personalized on-shore experience possible. ¡Bienvenidos!

n.4 / Authentic local culture

AUTHENTICITY IS EVERYTHING Carlo Bermudez, Silver Galápagos Chef Throughout my years sailing the Galápagos with Silversea, cruise after cruise, one thing has remained constant: the deep love our guests feel for our customs and our cuisine. They are curious about absolutely everything: from the local food to our rich and vibrant culture, from which ingredients make up our signature dishes to how to prepare local recipes like our worldfamous ceviche. Which is why we made sure Silver Origin provides only the most authentic culinary experience possible for our guests. And when we spend time together, we open up to our cultures and enrich the lives of all of us. Our guests will learn more about the incredible diversity of both the Galápagos and of Ecuadorian culture, while gaining in-depth insight into the local flora and fauna and how they’ve evolved to create this unique ecosystem over time. In the kitchen, we bring them truly authentic Ecuadorian recipes with only the freshest local ingredients, all accompanied by the best in regional wines. And in our live gourmet preparation sessions and seminars, they experience for themselves how to create and recreate all the flavors Ecuador and the Galápagos have to offer. “¡Buen provecho!”

The Restaurant


n.5 / Comfort and service

THE LUXURY YOU EXPECT THE SERVICE YOU DESERVE Gabriela Naranjo, Hotel Operations Director, Silversea Ecuador There is so much to see in the Galápagos it can all become a little overwhelming, so our guests really appreciate being pampered by our world-class staff after an intense day exploring the islands. They seek out the most luxurious refinements on board and enjoy that human touch that comes with our careful and attentive staff, all to prepare them for another day of discovery.

Royal Suite

Medallion Suite

We have taken what we have learned from our guests over the years and created the most elegant ship and most refined experience in the entire archipelago, only possible thanks to the history and legacy of Silversea in providing the best in luxury cruising. My team and I ensure every member of staff gives personal attention to each and every guest. As part of the Silversea family, Silver Origin features unparalleled luxury and our industry-leading personalized service. It is the only ship in the entire Galápagos region to offer butler service to each suite. In fact, with the highest ratio of crew per guest in the area, we are happy to offer our guests that personal touch that makes their stay on the ship as enjoyable as their visit to the islands themselves.
