Starting on July 16, cruisers will be able to reserve suites aboard Silversea’s newbuild (currently under construction) - Silver Origin. The all-suite, 100-passenger top-luxury ship is planned for inauguration in July 2020 and will be based in the Galapagos Islands the all year round.
Like the retiring fleetmate Silver Galapagos, Origin will alternate two 7-night itineraries between homeports San Cristobal and Baltra.
Aboard Silver Origin for the line’s north-central itinerary, vacationers will enjoy a circumnavigation of Isla Daphne Grande (Daphne Major). The voyage explores Darwin Bay and El Barranco (on Genovesa Island), Galapaguera Cerro Colorado and Punta Pitt (San Cristobal Island), Gardner Bay and Punta Suarez (Espanola Island), El Eden, Fausto Llerena Breeding Center and Puerto Ayora (Santa Cruz Island), as well as Seymour Norte, Rabida and Plaza Sur.
The western itinerary encompasses Cerro Dragon, Las Bachas Beach, and a circumnavigation of Roca Leon Dormido (Kicker Rock / San Cristobal). The itinerary also includes Punta Vicente Roca, Caleta Tagus and Elizabeth Bay (on Isabela Island), Post Office Bay, Islote Champion and Punta Cormorant (Floreana Island), Los Gemelos, Fausto Llerena Breeding Center and Puerto Ayora (Santa Cruz Island), Bartolome, Playa Espumilla and Punta Espinoza (Fernandina Island).
In 2020, two extended holiday-themed voyages are offered in December - departing on December 19, 2020 (11-day Christmas cruise from San Cristobal to Baltra) and December 29, 2020 (12-day New Year’s cruise roundtrip from San Cristobal).
