Cabin:

My wife and I were a bit concerned after we read some of the previous reviews for the Silver Galapagos and its cruising the Galapagos Islands. I am now very sorry we even read the reviews; not sure what those passengers expected or how they could have possibly been dissatisfied. This is an EXPEDITION style cruise and travelers/passengers need to take this into account when establishing expectations. We have only been on three previous cruises - Princess to Alaska, Regent to the Baltic and AMA Waterways on the Rhine. All were fine, especially the Regent cruise. Our experience on the Silver Galapagos equaled or exceeded our other cruises. The service was amazing and exceeded expectations. The food was even more amazing - incredible variety, gourmet style and presentation. Needless to say the shore excursions on the Galapagos were breathtaking - the reason we went and our expectations were again exceeded. The naturalist guides and guest lecturer were very knowledgeable, professional, courteous and helpful. The cabin was great - a good size and well finished. The all-inclusive feature of Silver Sea was another reason we chose this cruise. We will not hesitate recommending this cruise and ship to friends and family.

Cabin Review

Cabin Deluxe Veranda Suite

Fine furnishings and decor; great flatscreen TV; good sized balcony; sufficient closet space; good sized bathroom; large shower; very comfortable queen bed; very large, useful counter top and mirrors; 24/7 butler service. We were very comfortable! Only two negative issues: (1) shower drained slow; and (2) satellite TV froze numerous times and had to be reboot (likely understandable considering the location of the Galapagos Islands some 600 miles off the coast of Ecuador).
