Outstanding Expedition

|

My family of 4 (including my Wife, 10yo Son, 8yo Daughter) were on the Silver Galapagos the end of August. It's important to note that this is an "expedition" and not a "cruise". Everything was excellent. Also, ...

Excellent Experience

The Galapagos are a GREAT place to visit. We were onboard the Silver Galapagos from May 30 to April 6, 2019. We chose the rainy season as the temperatures were to be warmer and the seas calmer. We were ...

Every Detail Perfected

Ok, I could only give 4 stars...because of the unrefurbished ship. But otherwise, all was perfect. Silversea will get a new ship in 2020, so if having clean, comfortable, but not shiny new accommodations will ...

Eye opening exposure to wide range of fauna, good service, excellent food

Pluses: - Well organized and executed excursions which fortunately led to lifetime memories such as snorkeling in the midst of a penguin feeding frenzy, watching a dozen wild dolphins leap in unison several times ...

Active, scenic, luxury adventure

We came on the ship expecting to be the youngest passengers by far, but were amazed. We were ready for lazy walks and dressed up dinners, but were pleasantly surprised. The cruise began with a night (cut short) ...

The Galapagos cruise did not live up to expectations.

We booked the Galapagos cruise to fulfil a long term dream for our fortieth wedding anniversary. Our assessment of the standards offered on this cruise are affected by our expectations and the price we paid, over ...

High expectations not met.

This was a fortieth wedding anniversary and we wanted the best cruise to celebrate our event. The Galapagos Islands did not disappoint and we felt privileged to have access to the islands and the wildlife. Any ...

Wonderful cruise, but book your own flights

We had a full day in Quito prior to our flight to Baltra, and we wished we had added another day or two to explore the city. The Silversea agents were all very friendly, organized, and thorough, and we enjoyed the ...

If your expectations are reasonable, you will love this journey.

After carefully considering all options for visiting the Galapagos, including reading some of the not-so-stellar reviews of this cruise, I decided to give Silversea a try. I took my mom in July 2016 as a retirement ...

Pristine Galapagos

I had researched this trip 2 years ago. There were not a lot of reviews at the time for Silverseas in Galapagos however, I came across one blog and he had listed day by day their activities with pictures of his ...

No Better Way to See the Galapagos

This is a Silversea "Expeditions" cruise, so a smaller ship and not quite the same level of luxury as the bigger Silversea ships. But a fabulous cruise with two "ports" most days, one early morning for 3 hours or ...

Best Way to See Galapagos

I believe other reviewers miss the point in comparing their experience on Silver Galapagos with other cruises. The Galapagos is a closed, tightly regulated market; only ships exclusively dedicated to the Galapagos ...

Great Itinerary and Activities, Average Ship

First of all this was an "Expedition" cruise on a 100 passenger ship, the Silversea Galapagos. So I understand that the cruise can't be like what you would experience on a medium-to-large sized all-inclusive cruise ...

A cruise of two halves....

This is a cruise with two very contrasting levels of experience. Firstly (on the plus side) the organisation of the wildlife watching daily tours is excellent, led by a first rate team of guides / naturalists who ...

A short review as I have little to add to the previous few reviews. I booked this cruise as a retirement treat. Traveling with me was my wife and 11year old son. We are all very much into anything to do with nature ...

Silver Galapagos

I read the previous reviews with a sinking feeling in my stomach. To have a 50% overall good rating on a cruise that is certainly not cheap made me anxious. However, now that I've returned from that cruise I have ...
