Ship: Silver Galapagos

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. .
