Silver Origin Review

Review of Silver Origin

The 2020-built/2021-inaugurated MS Silver Origin cruise ship is a Galapagos-based luxury superyacht. The newbuild vessel is owned by Silversea and operated by company's "Silversea Expeditions" division/brand. Origin's Silversea Expeditions fleetmates are Silver Clound (1994) and Silver Explorer (2008). Silver Galapagos (1990-built) was sold in January 2021.

History - construction and ownership

Silversea Cruises is a Monaco-based privately-owned cruise company and top-luxury travel brand. It was established in 1994 as a joint venture of V-Ships Monaco (fka Vlasov Group) and Lefebvre Family of Rome Italy. In 2018, RCCL-Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd acquired 2/3rd of the company. Silversea now has a fleet of smaller-sized boutique ships with passenger capacity between 100-700. The company's business model is to operate yacht-like vessels in the industry's "ultra-luxury-all-suite ship" category. Silversea's all-inclusive fares include beverages (also selected wines), gratuities (none are allowed), travel insurance, port charges, one or more shore excursions (per voyage).

Silver Origin cruise ship (Silversea Expeditions)

The 100-passenger ship Silver Origin (scheduled for delivery in March 2020) is one of the most environmentally friendly vessels due to its top-notch maritime technologies and solutions specifically designed for cruising in the Galapagos Islands. The ship's dynamic positioning system allows it to maintain a stable position automatically and without anchors in order to protect the sea bed. The freshwater purification systems enable the vessel to reduce the consumption of single-use plastic bottles. The wastewater treatment plant exceeds the industry's strictest regulations.

The boat's technological innovations complement Silversea's efforts to make a positive impact on the region's economic and natural environment. The company also contributes to Floreana Island Ecological Restoration Project - an ecosystem restoration project aimed to remove invasive species thus protecting Floreana Island's endangered flora and fauna.

Decks and Cabins

Silver Origin staterooms (a total of 50 suites) are in 8 cabin grades, with the largest being Owner's Suites. All cabins are with private step-out balcony (a rarity in Galapagos). Some categories feature the new Horizon Balcony that can be easily converted to a patio (enclosing the balcony via floor-ceiling windows) for better shelter and more space. Silversea fleet's first is that some cabin categories offer oceanview bathtub and shower (also accessible from the balcony).

Every stateroom as amenities offers complimentary minibar (refrigerator fully-stocked with snacks and beverages), down duvets, en-suite marble bathroom (with locally sourced bath products), premium slippers and spa robes, on-demand movies and music library. Cruise suites amenities also include rainforest walk-in showers, large mirrors, luxury vanities, flat HDTVs, wood flooring, premium mattresses (custom-made) and bedding (Pratesi linens).

Silver Origin is the only Galapagos cruise liner to offer butler service to all staterooms, as well as the highest crew-to-passenger ratio (1:1,16) and the highest ratio of qualified guides per passenger (1:10) in the Galapagos, which enables an unparalleled level of personalized top-quality service.

The boat has 8 decks, of which 6 are passenger-accessible and only 2 with cabins.

Shipboard facilities and amenities

The Restaurant offers contemporary, international cuisine with impeccable service and sophisticated elegance. Menus feature regional specialities that are unique to the cruise destination. The Grill is an open-air, sophisticated dining venue. Also provided is a 24-hour tea-coffee station.

Silver Origin Wiki

Vessel's construction (hull number 489) started on October 8, 2018, with the steel-cutting ceremony held at Shipyard De Hoop (in Tolkamer, Lobith, Netherlands). The vessel was launched (floated out from drydock) on December 30, 2019.

 

Due to the Coronavirus 2020 crisis, the boat's delivery was delayed and a total of 34 originally planned for Silver Origin voyages (2020-2021) were cancelled (CruiseMinus). The cruise ship was officially delivered to Silversea on June 3, 2020, in Port Rotterdam (Pernis). The ceremony was attended by Manfredi Lefebvre d’Ovidio (Silversea's Chairman), Roberto Martinoli (President and CEO), Damien O’Connor (Hotel Operations Director), Barbara Muckermann (Chief Marketing Officer) and Patrick Janssens (De Hoop Shipyard's CEO).
