Great new Ship with exemplary crew
"The one additional comment I would make is that after disembarking the ship Silverseas looked after us until we boarded our flight to Quito.The shore company who Silversea used transported us to a Covid-19 test site as 6 of us need PCR testing done for our return flights when we got there the laboratory doing the test was typical nonchalant and the company representative had to keep on top of things as there was no sense of urgency even though we only had a couple hours before our flight from Guayaquil to Quito...."Read More

There were six of us on our May 7, 2022 sailing of the Silversea Origin and we are all in our 60's. We flew into Quito a day earlier than is part of the cruise package. We were very happy we had an extra day in Quito. It allowed us to arrange a private tour on Thursday of the city and on Friday we had the same tour guide take us out in the country side to see the Equator park and then we went to a ...

We sailed with Silversea because we had heard it was a line where we would be "well cared for". The entire trip was extremely well organized with all the staff providing friendly, personable service. The Silver Origin is a wonderful ship filled with friendly helpful staff. We had to take advantage of the medical staff and Dr. Dan was wonderful. Food, cabins, expeditions all top notch. ...

This Galapagos cruise, 10 years in the making, was the 3rd time charm after 2 cancelled cruises. The Silver Origin is a beautiful ship. The cabins are well appointed with a comfy bed, long desk with chair, mini fridge, flat screen tv, bedside tables with storage and lamps. The covered balcony with a chair and love seat was very large and comfortable. The bathroom was large, with a big shower, ...

So we have not cruised in almost two years like everyone else, we wanted to go on a small ship so we wouldn’t be too crowded. Since we had previously sailed on Silverseas they were offering some good discounts for this Galapagos voyage. Everything was well organized including our prior Covid testing we did before flying out to the islands. It was nice having everything looked after from hotel to ...

Most likely if you are reading this review, Galapagos is on your bucket list. Silversea Origin is the way to do it. You will see what you are looking for: Sea Turtles, Sea Lions, Giant Tortoises, Marine Iguanas, Land Iguanas, Blue Footed Boobies (they really have blue feet), Penguins, Sharks, Seals, and all kinds of birds. We simply cannot imagine that any other operator delivers better ...

Preliminaries Ever since I read "The Voyage of the Beagle" in college in 1957 I have wanted to visit the Galapagos. I thought I was out of luck. I am an 83 year old woman who has been on 32 cruises, but I had a hip replacement in 2019 and can no longer navigate an airport with luggage by myself. But my daughter-in-law Kathy had always wanted to see the blue footed booby's courtship dance ...

Arrival Quito: We arrived late at night and there is a Silversea hospitality desk at the JW Marriott. We were told to report the next morning between 8 and 10am for a covid test provided by Silversea in the business center at the hotel. Let me just say that for the four of us travelling together and many other guests, the whole covid testing was the most stressful part of the trip. Rules kept ...

Su and I are experienced cruisers. Our normal choice of cruise line is small ships and very good service. We selected this cruise about 5 weeks before the start and have been pleasantly pleased with both SilverSea and more so the crew of the Silver Origin. On arrival in Quito our trip from the airport to the hotel was easy, the cab driver was outstanding and we arrived at the JW Marriott ready. ...

After learning that Silversea was starting up their cruises in the Galapagos, and it was was on the brand new Silver Origin, we decided this was a great time to finally see these legendary islands. As a brand new ship, the public areas, cabins, and overall set-up of the ship was absolutely wonderful. Seeing these wonderful islands on a small luxury cruise ship was ideal for us. The excursions ...

Maiden Voyage on Origin to the Galapagos 6/19/21

This was the maiden voyage for the Origin. I would recommend this type of cruise "expedition" to snorkelers who are comfortable in deep water with strong currents and for those who are agile enough to climb a moderate to difficult lava terrain. When we embarked, there was not immediate food service and we were told to wait for our keys. This was not like other cruises. The dining room staff ...
