Silver Galapagos Cruise Review by craigch

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Feb 2015
  • Destination: South America
  • Cabin Type: undefined

My family and I have been on many cruises and had reasonable expectations for the Silver Galapagos given the many negative reviews. The air conditioning on the ship did not work well most nights. We were informed by the staff that this is an expedition cruise and such should be expected. The food was terrible by any standards. The accomidations were as expected, but again, we had low expectations. The public rooms smelled of mildew and mold. Having been to the Galapagos three times now, I can say with confidence that this cruise is highly over priced given our experience. Other operators offered better service, food and accommodations for about 60% of the cost.

On the positive side, the naturalists were very knowledgeable and friendly.

Cabin Review

The upgrade to the veranda suite was not worth the money.
