Review for Silver Origin to South America

Most likely if you are reading this review, Galapagos is on your bucket list. Silversea Origin is the way to do it. You will see what you are looking for: Sea Turtles, Sea Lions, Giant Tortoises, Marine Iguanas, Land Iguanas, Blue Footed Boobies (they really have blue feet), Penguins, Sharks, Seals, and all kinds of birds. We simply cannot imagine that any other operator delivers better ...

The Galapagos southern loop was exceptional. Traveling with reduced capacity made for a very intimate expedition. The food, service, and accommodations were beautiful. I completely understand and appreciate the care and concern from island to island, as we were asked to wash off our shoes, each time, so no seeds or poop could be transferred to another island. The talks were invaluable and ...

Su and I are experienced cruisers. Our normal choice of cruise line is small ships and very good service. We selected this cruise about 5 weeks before the start and have been pleasantly pleased with both SilverSea and more so the crew of the Silver Origin. On arrival in Quito our trip from the airport to the hotel was easy, the cab driver was outstanding and we arrived at the JW Marriott ready. ...

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 ...

This was a heck of a trip. We have decided it was the best we have ever taken. On the final night on board Captain Patricio (one of the nicest guys you will ever meet) talked for a few minutes about how he feels about the Galapagos. He said that (paraphrasing here) that “the Galapagos should be the model for the rest of the earth. A place where every animal and bird has learned to live together. ...

Maiden Voyage on Origin to the Galapagos 6/19/21

This was the maiden voyage for the Origin. I would recommend this type of cruise "expedition" to snorkelers who are comfortable in deep water with strong currents and for those who are agile enough to climb a moderate to difficult lava terrain. When we embarked, there was not immediate food service and we were told to wait for our keys. This was not like other cruises. The dining room staff ...

Review for Stella Australis to South America

2-5 Cruises • Age 60s

We were the last sailing of the Stella Australis for 2020 from Ushuaia to Punta Arenas. We were lucky to have great weather. The ship's capacity is 200 passengers with 65 or so crew but we were fortunate to have less than 100 passengers. Embarkation was smooth, including a temperature check to be sure no one was sick, and we really liked our cabin on the 4th deck (it was worth paying a little ...

Review for Hebridean Sky (APT) to South America

6-10 Cruises • Age 60s

This was the Chilean Fjords Cruise starting in Buenos Aires, Ushuaia to Santiago. Sadly after just a couple of days on board Covid closed all the Chilean and Argentina Ports, which meant diversion to the Falklands, and a repatriation flight home to UK. In short we spent 14 days on board, mostly circling around port Stanley, being fed and watered, but only made two short excursions before the ...

We were on the ill-fated cruise which we boarded in Buenos Aires on March 7th, before the Coronavirus pandemic really began, but because we knew of its existence, extra care was taken to ensure our safety. Unfortunately, unknown to us all the coronavirus was aboard and spreading amongst us. When the cruise was terminated on March 15th, every effort was made to get us home safely. Our Captain: Ane ...
