Ultra-luxury expedition cruise line Silversea has ordered three new ships. Two will be the debut of the Evolution class and constructed by German shipbuilder Meyer Werft for delivery in 2022.
The third is already named Silver Origin and the expedition vessel is to be built by Holland’s Shipyard De Hoop and will sail the Galapagos with delivery in March 2020. More young people are considering going on a cruise in the next 12 months compared to last year. Travel association Abta’s latest Holiday Habits report says more than one in 10 of 18 to 34-year-olds (both 12 per cent) are looking to take one in the next 12 months, compared to 11 per cent of 18 to 24-year-olds and 9% of 25 to 34-year-olds in 2017.
