EXPLORER LOUNGE – EXTERIOR
With islands as beautiful as these, we know you want to spend as much time as possible experiencing them! When night falls, cosy up around the fire pit and contemplate the beauty of your destination – seamlessly taking you from day to night, the Explorer Lounge does it all!
THE IDEAL LINK BETWEEN DESTINATION AND SHIP
The perfect meeting point for Zodiac excursions, the Basecamp has been specially designed to offer guest a chance to prepare for their next adventure. Featuring an interactive wall, the Basecamp doubles as an information HQ where guests access information on the fascinating flora and fauna of the Galapagos Islands.
COMFORT MEETS DESTINATION
Imagine taking a bath with a sea lion. Or transforming your suite at the touch of a button. With Silver Origin’s ocean-view bathtub, balcony showers and pioneering Horizon Balcony, seeing the Galapagos up close has never been easier. Designed by Giacomo Mortola and his firm GEM, the team behind Silver Muse, Silver Origin’s all-suite accommodation has been conceived with the unicity of the islands in mind. Not forgetting our superb butler service for every suite, regardless of category, Silver Origin is the definition of travelling deeper in luxury.
The Galapagos Islands are the largest National Park in Ecuador and one of the most important protected natural areas in the world, so we want to be sure our carbon footprint is well below standard. Silver Origin will be one of only two ships sailing in the Galapagos to feature dynamic positioning – meaning that no anchor to damage the delicate ecosystem of the sea bed. She will also be plastic-free – guests will be gifted a metallic reusable bottle and reverse osmosis (whereby seawater is turned into drinking water) refilling stations will save at least 17,000 plastic bottles.
