Silver Origin is the newbuild that Silversea Cruises received in Coronavirus (COVID-19) summer 2020. The vessel is specially constructed for the conditions of the Galapagos. The building of the new luxury liner was carried out in the Netherlands by De Hoop Shipyard. Most recently, the cruise company hoped to be able to commence a transfer to the Galapagos Islands on August 22, 2020, but the plan did not work out.
Silver Origin is capable of cruising in the islands year-round and has a capacity of up to 100 passengers. Origin's Silversea Expeditions fleetmates are Silver Galapagos (1990), Silver Cloud (1994) and Silver Explorer (2008).
