Silversea Cruises revealed recently that they have plans to add three more luxurious ships to their fleet.
Two of these new vessels will be coming from German shipbuilder Meyer Werft, and will be known as the “Evolution Class”. The first ship is expected to be ready by 2022. The third vessel, to be named Silver Origin, is estimated to arrive in March 2020. This more intimate expedition style ship will be constructed by Dutch shipbuilder Shipyard De Hoop, and will take over the Galapagos Islands Itinerary that Silver Galapagos is currently sailing.
“We are delighted to have entered into an agreement with Meyer Werft on the Silver Evolution series and De Hoop for Silver Origin,” says Manfredi Lefebvre d’Ovidio, Silversea’s Executive Chairman. “With our guests in mind, we are pushing the boundaries of ultra-luxury cruising, as well as expedition cruising in the Galápagos Islands and beyond, redefining the concept of immersive travel.”
“We are very happy to build these new ships for Silversea Cruises. Together with Silversea we will create a new generation of environmentally friendly ships in the ultra-luxury cruise market,” said Tim Meyer, Managing Director of Meyer Werft.
Silversea is recognized as a game changer in the ultimate luxury cruise line industry. They offer guests large-ship amenities aboard intimate, all-suite vessels: Silver Wind, Silver Shadow, Silver Whisper, Silver Spirit and Silver Muse – all designed to offer an atmosphere of casual elegance. With the expedition fleet currently comprised of Silver Explorer, Silver Galapagos, Silver Discoverer and Silver Cloud, Silversea’s itineraries encompass all seven continents and feature worldwide luxury cruises to the Mediterranean, Caribbean, both Polar Regions and hundreds of fascinating destinations in between.
