Everyone stays in a suite on Silver Origin and the smallest is a spacious 325 square feet. There are eight categories, including some of the largest suites in the Galapagos. All 51 suites are located on Decks 5 and 6 and come with butler service and 24/hour room service.

Check Your Room to See What Kind of Balcony It Has

While all the suites have balconies, they are not all the kind where you can step-out into open space. Some are what the line calls "Horizon" balconies, a design borrowed from sister brand Celebrity Cruises, where you push a button to open the top half of a floor-to-ceiling window to make your suite open-air (patio furniture near the window replicates a balcony atmosphere).

Like the rest of the ship, much attention was paid to details in the suites, which are done up in a soothing contemporary décor. Headboards are padded. Beside your bed are plugs (110/220) and USB outlets. You sleep on fine European linens including down duvets and have a choice of pillows. Beds are twins, convertible to Queen or King depending on your suite category.

The glass shower in your bathroom will have an ocean-view – in some suites you need to push a panel above your double-sink for the view (note that your shower is not on an outside wall, so your view is through your bedroom, and you'll be flashing your roommate as you shower). In the bathroom is a special purified water faucet for filling your water bottle. The toilet is in its own separate room, sans sink. Bath amenities are all Ecuadorian-made, and an inclusion is natural suntan lotion that will not harm the fragile Galapagos wildlife, created so that no chemicals leach into the environment.

Provided in your walk-in closet are bathrobes and slippers, hanging space and drawers, as well as a safe. Storage space includes hooks to hang your snorkeling gear and the lifejacket you'll use for the week, each time you're in a Zodiac, which is your means for getting ashore to kayaks or to snorkeling spots.

Lighting is designed so you can read in bed without disturbing your roommate. Your mini-bar is stocked with local snacks, soft drinks and your choice of alcohol. There's a flat screen HDTV with an interactive media library (including on demand movies and a music library) and a mirrored vanity table/writing desk with a chair in each suite. Top suites add coffee machines.
