Back in November 2019, I discussed the best Silversea cruises. At the time, 2020-2021 looked set to become another sensational season of sailing for Silversea. Then the Covid-19 pandemic hit and most cruises were canceled.
Now that we enter the second half of 2020, there looks to be some light at the end of the tunnel (let’s just hope it’s not another train!). Improved treatments and the hope of a vaccine (optimistically as soon as late 2020) means that overseas travel will once again become a possibility sometime soon. In fact, some countries are already creating air bridges between each other to enable travel this summer.
If you are thinking of cruising, you may have to wait a little longer, or you could set your sights a domestic cruise. But the time will come when you can book a “normal” overseas cruise, at which point, the luxury traveler should definitely consider the newest Silversea ship, Silver Origin.
Silversea Cruises has just taken delivery of its first-ever destination-specific ship, Silver Origin, from Dutch shipyard De Hoop. An intimate ceremony, which was held on Wednesday, June 3, 2020, marked the first in-person cruise ship delivery since the pandemic prompted a global lockdown.
Integrating the latest state-of-the-art technology and designed with a focus on the pillars of sustainability, destination on board, expedition experience, authentic local culture, and comfort and service, the all-suite, all-balcony, 100-guest Silver Origin will welcome travelers year-round in the unique Galapagos Archipelago.
The ship will provide guests with the ultimate destination experience, inspired by Silversea’s accrued expertise and founded on a deep respect for the fragility of the natural environment while maintaining the cruise line’s trademark quality of service.
