We chose the Silversea Silver Galapagos because we wanted an all-inclusive cruise around the Galapagos Islands. It was fantastic! No complaints at all. A word of advice, be prepared for a jam-packed vacation. Don't plan on sleeping in. ... Read more

My first expedition cruise, but it will not be my last! I am already looking at other SilverSea Expedition Cruises trying to decide which I want to take next. If you like to stay busy, this is the trip for you. Morning and afternoon ... Read more

We had a great time on our cruise. The guides were exceptional - we saw an incredible amount of wildlife and learned so much about the animals and birds. We saw mating rituals, chicks - everything. This is a very active cruise and the ... Read more

Silversea made this whole experience so simple by including flights and transfers from Quito to the Galapagos and back to Guayaquil in their package. Silver Galapagos is definitely in a different class from other Silversea ships. ... Read more

We started by flying in to Quito for two nights. The transfer from airport to hotel was flawless. Two days later the transfer back to the airport was also flawless. We flew from Quito to Quayaquil and on to Baltra, in the Galapagos, where ... Read more

We chose this cruise because the reviews of the guides and excursions were excellent, and we were not disappointed. This cruise was an expedition rather than a luxury cruise, but Silversea did a great job of making us all feel pampered. ... Read more

My husband I had been looking for a Silversea cruise to South Africa or the Galapagos during the periods when I have a break from my work as a high school administrator. The Galapagos trip fit perfectly, and we booked it in the fall of ... Read more

Always wanted to visit the Galápagos and surprisingly, with an offer they had on, this was the best deal (don't get me wrong it was still expensive). Due to the location only small ships can go there, but that was part of the ... Read more

Since many friends have taken these cruises other places, we decided to trust their opinion. We were not disappointed. Everything was extremely well organized. There were quite a few naturalists who were very specialized especially ... Read more

We were looking for a cruise around the Galapagos Islands, and one crucial factor was that I have celiac disease and therefore must have a true gluten free diet. That was handled perfectly by all staff, especially Carlo (head chef) and ... Read more

We really enjoyed our recent cruise on the Silver Galapagos. We were on the North/Central itinerary. Just for background, we are around 60, and while we have done larger, luxury cruises in the past, we now find we enjoy expedition style ... Read more

Despite the fact that I have been cruising since 2000, I don't write reviews. But I felt it was important for me to do so here, as this ship has such a low overall rating which is undeserved. The ship- we originally booked, an ocean ... Read more

This was our first expedition cruise after many years of cruising(Regent and Crystal). Our travel agent recommended Silversea and we thoroughly enjoyed the ship,crew,fellow passengers,guides,and the wonders of the Galápagos. This is ... Read more

We had a full day in Quito prior to our flight to Baltra, and we wished we had added another day or two to explore the city. The Silversea agents were all very friendly, organized, and thorough, and we enjoyed the city tour that was ... Read more

After carefully considering all options for visiting the Galapagos, including reading some of the not-so-stellar reviews of this cruise, I decided to give Silversea a try. I took my mom in July 2016 as a retirement gift. I must say that ... Read more

Our cruise was the "Western Itinerary" (Voyage 8618). Let me start by praising the expedition team and their leader. We rated them a "10" in every respect. Very knowledgeable, friendly, and patient. The variety ... Read more

We just got back from the Galapagos with Silversea and had an amazing time. It exceeded our expectations which were very high. I read many of the reviews on CC before the trip who were not happy with the service on the ship, our ... Read more

This is a Silversea "Expeditions" cruise, so a smaller ship and not quite the same level of luxury as the bigger Silversea ships. But a fabulous cruise with two "ports" most days, one early morning for 3 hours or so, ... Read more

I believe other reviewers miss the point in comparing their experience on Silver Galapagos with other cruises. The Galapagos is a closed, tightly regulated market; only ships exclusively dedicated to the Galapagos can operate there. So ... Read more

First of all this was an "Expedition" cruise on a 100 passenger ship, the Silversea Galapagos. So I understand that the cruise can't be like what you would experience on a medium-to-large sized all-inclusive cruise ship. ... Read more

This is a cruise with two very contrasting levels of experience. Firstly (on the plus side) the organisation of the wildlife watching daily tours is excellent, led by a first rate team of guides / naturalists who keep you fully informed ... Read more
