After experiencing the Silver Origin first-hand, Nabila Richardson shares how bigger can mean better in the Galápagos Islands.
The Silver Origin is the first expedition ship to be purpose built for cruising the Galápagos Islands, with every detail purposefully designed to provide the finest experiential experience. For anyone looking for a truly immersive wildlife adventure, we always recommend exploring the Galápagos by boat and typically, we would also recommend a smaller expedition vessel. But with the launch of Silver Origin, bigger can now mean better.
Highest crew to guest ratio in the Galápagos
Built by Silversea, Silver Origin is the largest yacht that can sail the National Park, with a maximum capacity of 100 people. With a larger size, comes a larger team to look after you, from the expert Ecuadorian national guides and attentive waiters who remember how you like your coffee, to your personal butler who is on hand for any request – think helping unpack, ensuring you have sufficient sun cream and polishing your sunglasses, in time for an early morning hike. With 90 crew members on aboard, the Silversea Silver Origin has the highest crew to guest ratio in the Galápagos and you certainly feel taken care of, at every turn.
