Sail Date: Oct 2021
Cabin:

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, fresh water faucet, large sink with faucets on each side, 6 shelves and great toiletries, including sunscreen. A lighted walk in style closet had a safe, shelves, drawers, hangers with room for lots of clothes, snorkel gear, etc. Slippers and robes were provided. We had 3 adults in the cabin and another chair was made into a single bed.

The public areas were filled bright, comfortable and filled with comfy furniture. The boarding area was well organized.

The food was generally good, with a focus on local seafood. However, service was lacking. 3 times dinner service took over 90 minutes and twice the order was wrong, both in the dining room and at Hot Rocks, the specialty restaurant. Other service issues also occurred including my place being cleared while I was geting buffet breakfast. While they apologized profusely for each lapse, the damage was done.
