Sail Date: Jul 2021

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 were varied and always interesting. There was a wide range of choices, from semi-strenuous hikes, snorkeling, and even just cruising around an island in one of their Zodiacs, with expert commentary provided along the way. The onboard naturalists are incredibly knowledgeable about the islands, and their love and commitment to their protection was very apparent.

The meals were always interesting and tasty, with extra effort made in presentation. The focus on Ecuadorian menu items was a welcome switch from typical cruise fare.

Cabin Review

Great! Large shower, double faucet sink, quality toiletries provided, large veranda that could accommodate four people should you be traveling with another couple and want to invite them over to share a drink on the veranda and take in the view. Good movie selection, and a variety of news channels via satellite. Well-stocked fridge, kept filled with whatever drinks we requested. VERY comfortable bed!
