See the Galápagos Islands in luxury

| Quito and Gal
Great ship for cruising the Galapagos Islands. One of the largest ships allowed (100 passengers). Outstanding food. Experienced guides. Friendly crew. Excellent level of service. Older group of passengers (I am guessing that the average age was 65). We had the Western islands itinerary. Preferred the other itinerary when I was there 12 years ago (more wildlife). Good time of the year - warm water, warm temperatures, no rain, but humid.

Needed more shade for lunch outside and would be nice to have more shade with couches and chairs to relax outside.

Chatting with frequent Silver Seas cruiser, they also agreed the food is not up to par with the other ships in their fleet. We were told by the chef that all the food had to come from Ecuador, and only Ecuador. So the chef did the best he could with what he had. Dinner at the Grill is always dinner served at your place on a hot rock that you finish cooking, that was interesting. All breakfast and lunch is buffet, and dinner is served. The Galapagos is an exciting trip, but you have to be in good shape. Lots of climbing on rocks, and wet and dry landings. But, great fun that I would recommend to anyone able to go see the country and the animals.

Silver Seas Galapagos

| Galapagos
Our first Silver Seas expedition and it was fantastic in all respects. All aspects of the trip were well planned and staff-from initial greeting at the Quito airport to our departure at Baltra were knowledgeable, went out of their way to meet our needs even if we weren’t sure what that might be!

The Galapagos is a trip to remember

| Galapagos
The Silver Galapagos is an older ship. It is being replaced by a brand new one next year. The ship is well kept and immaculately clean. Silversea service is outstanding. The staff all knew your names in a couple of days. They were available 24/7. There is no entertainment except for a piano player but the day's activities kept you more than busy! By evening, everyone is exhausted. Loved that everything was taken care of from the moment you got off the plane throughout the trip and then for the return. The naturalists are terrific and truly knowledgeable about the flora and fauna. They still get genuinely excited to see a bird or whale and love to point it out. We were never worried about our safety. They took care to help everyone no matter what you chose to do.

Loved snorkeling and seeing the dolphins right off the ship. I know their activities are licensed so they have limited flexibility, but would have loved more snorkeling.
