Amazing place

The wildlife and nature staff were amazing.  They did an excellent job teaching us and keeping us safe. Service was good but not as good as the regular Silver Sea cruises we have been on.  The food at lunch and breakfast was excellent but the service in the evening was very poor as was the selection.

Silversea is a great option for Galapagos

The cruise was wonderful.  Each day you do two to three tours on zodiacs from the ship.  They are hiking, snorkeling or just a zodiac tour so something for everyone.  You should have good stability as some of the shore landings require walking on lava that has been wet and slippery and getting on and off the ship requires climbing or descending about 25 stairs to the zodiac.  The service was great and food very good.  This was our first Silversea trip so I have nothing to compare it too but many of the passengers had sailed many times with Silversea

Largely good

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Excellent Silversea service and name remembrance except at lunch and sometimes dinner when something is ordered but it never comes or you have to be assertive to get someone to take your order.  Expedition cruises often have smaller rooms but it was beautifully equipped and excursion memories will last a lifetime!

Ship Run Down, Service Just OK, Food Terrible

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (older children)

Just got back from a Galapogos cruise on Silver Galapogos.  We were very dissapointed in almost every respect.  We have been on many cruises and by and large have been very satisfied.  This ship is poorly maintained and smells of mildew.  The crew and staff barely speak english.  The rooms are small and need updating.  And lst but not least, the food was simply aweful at just about every meal.  The sales team at Silverseas grossly oversold this cruise.  Even with reasonably low expectations, Silverseas managed to dissapoint. .

Amazing Itinerary and sights

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Silver Galapagos is in need of refurbishment however since you will spend so little time aboard it's hardly an issue. There are activities to do from early morning hikes to snorkelling and sea kyacking. We had a great time and saw amazing animals and landscapes, beautiful unspoiled scenery and beaches as well. You can be off on activities as much or as little as you want. We chose to do as much as possible and fell into bed each night. The food was adequate and at times great. Air conditioning and elevators didn't seem to be working too well. Some travellers were in over their heads as they could not keep up with all the walking but we were fine. Mainly middle aged reasonably fit couples on this cruise. Happy
