Silversea announce Silver Origin and Evolution Class of ship

Silversea Cruises and Royal Caribbean announced plans to construct three new luxury cruise ships for Silversea Cruises, including two luxury vessels as well as an expedition ship.

Silversea has signed a memorandum to build two new luxury cruise ships in a new "Evolution Class." The first Silver Evolution-class ship is expected to be delivered in 2022. Silversea Expeditions also signed a contract with shipbuilder Shipyard De Hoop, to build a new expedition vessel, the Silver Origin, that will serve the Galapagos Islands itinerary currently sailed by Silver Galapagos.


Silver Origin is expected for delivery in March 2020, according to a press release.

"We are delighted to have entered into an agreement with Meyer Werft on the Silver Evolution series and De Hoop for Silver Origin," said 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 Galapagos Islands and beyond, redefining the concept of immersive travel."

"We are excited to get to work helping Silversea grow and realize its ambitions," said Richard D. Fain, Chairman and CEO of Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd., which finalized its two-thirds acquisition of Silversea earlier this year. "There is tremendous potential in the ultra-luxury and expedition markets of the cruise industry, and we believe discerning travelers will embrace the exciting designs Silversea is imagining for them."

The agreements are subject to certain contingencies which are expected to be completed in the first quarter of 2019, Royal Caribbean said.
