Luxury cruise line Silversea is marking the long-awaited maiden voyages of two new ships over the next two days.
Silver Moon makes its debut from Athens on Friday (18 June) with a series of 10-day trips around Greece, while the brand’s new expedition ship Silver Origin will depart from San Cristobal in the Galapagos islands on Saturday (19 June).
The launch of Silver Moon also features the unveiling of Silversea’s new Salt (Sea and Land Taste) culinary programme, while Silver Origin is the line’s first destination-specific ship offering a range of itineraries around the Galapagos.
Silversea chief executive Roberto Martinoli said: “These initial sailings will transport guests to our most sought-after destinations in the Greek isles and the Galapagos archipelago.
“We look forward to the further expansion of our offering in July with resumed service to Alaska on Silver Muse and Iceland on Silver Shadow. I look forward to personally welcoming our guests aboard Silver Moon in Greece.”
As part of Silversea’s return to operations, Silver Muse will sail to Alaska from 29 July, while Silver Shadow will depart on an Iceland trip from 30 July.
