Silversea top executives – including Manfredi Lefebvre d’Ovidio, Chairman; Roberto Martinoli, President and CEO; Damien O’Connor, SVP Hotel Operations & Onboard Revenue; and Barbara Muckermann, Chief Marketing Officer – attended the delivery ceremony of Silver Origin in Rotterdam.
“It was a very proud moment for me to attend Silver Origin’s official delivery ceremony in person, and to welcome Silversea’s first-ever destination-specific ship to our fleet” said Manfredi Lefebvre d’Ovidio, chairman of Silversea Cruises.
The new Silver Origin is the first ship since the start of Silversea’s collaboration with Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd.
In September 2013, Silversea became the first cruise line to launch an ultra-luxury ship in the Galapagos Archipelago. The know-how accumulated over the years has been used in designing Silver Origin. Every element of the ship has been designed with the destination in mind and tailored to enhance the experience for travellers, while fostering a deep sense of respect for this magnificent ecosystem and everything that inhabits it.
The all-suite, all-balcony, 100-guest Silver Origin will welcome travellers 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.
