About Silver Galapagos

Silver Galapagos is one of Silversea’s exclusive luxury cruise ships with a capacity of just 100 guests. As with all of Silversea’s ships, every detail has been carefully thought out for your wellbeing and ease. Enjoy the personalised services of a butler who will unpack your luggage and valet your clothing, so you can start to relax from the moment you step onboard.

Silver Galapagos has been specifically designed to smoothly navigate the winding water channels in the stunning and unique Galapagos Islands and is perfectly equipped for luxurious cruise expeditions around this region. All of her suites have ocean views and a full butler service, with the majority featuring private balconies where you can linger, unwind and take in the scenery as you gracefully sail by.

The atmosphere onboard Silver Galapagos is like a friendly and exclusive explorers’ club, where discerning travellers from all over the world can relax together and make new friends – in the cosy intimacy, you’ll get to know your fellow cruisers rather well. You’ll be able to share amazing experiences and have lots of fun as you make exciting new discoveries on your cruise journey.

As you sail between destinations, there’s plenty to enjoy onboard. You can ease into holiday mode with a soothing massage, have a beauty salon treatment to keep looking your best or lie back and linger in the hot tub. You can also do a little browsing in the boutiques or catch up with friends and family by sharing videos and photos in the internet cafe.

Delicious dining choices are a signature feature of all Silversea ships. Onboard Silver Galapagos there are two excellent restaurants with appetising menu choices, as well as a grill where you can stop off for a steak in elegant surroundings. There’s also a lounge and two stylish bars – including a Piano Bar where you can relax and mingle with fellow guests.

Cap off each day of adventure with yet another unforgettable activity onboard your expedition cruise – dinner in The Restaurant. While this elegant venue also serves breakfast and lunch, it is the evening meal that guests look forward to most. This is the time to recount experiences ashore with fellow guests and discuss lecture topics with Expedition Team members while savouring fine cuisine and perfectly paired wines. When possible, the Captain will manoeuvre the ship so as to enjoy spectacular sunset views or to follow the flukes of migrating whales.


The Restaurant

The menu in The Restaurant includes a wide range of international selections to accommodate the global palate of their guests. The chefs always include a choice of local Ecuadorean specialities to enrich your culinary journey, as well, but whether you choose Galapagos Lobster à la Galapaguera or filet mignon with truffles, your selections will be artfully presented and served. The Restaurant offers open-seating dining, which means there are no assigned times, no assigned tables. You are free to dine when, where and with whom you please.

  • Experience: Complimentary
  • Cuisine: Varies

The Grill

Soft breezes and island views beckon at the Grill, especially as the sun goes down, when guests gather at the outdoor bar for cocktails and tapas, and talk about their day. Dining options include a choice of lighter fare as well as grilled favourites and fresh-from-the-oven pizza. In the evening The Grill is transformed into an intimate, interactive eatery where diners can grill their own fresh seafood and prime cuts under a canopy of stars. This alternative dining venue is always a favourite with Silversea guests, and dinner reservations are recommended.

  • Experience: Complimentary
  • Cuisine: Bbq

In-suite dining

You can have breakfast delivered to your suite or a formal dinner ordered from The Restaurant menu. Lighter fare is always available from the room service menu, available from 06:00 to 23:00.

The ocean views and soothing sound of the surf can be quite intoxicating at sea, so it’s not surprising that daydreaming on deck is one of the most popular pastimes. However, every Silversea all inclusive cruise also includes a considerable number of more active pursuits — some for the body, some for the mind … and some just for fun.


Piano Bar

Meet and mingle with fellow travellers and your expedition leaders in the Piano Bar, where cocktails are served and views of blue seas and lava-rock landscapes are always on display. Your bartender will quickly learn your favourite drink, but do try one of the local concoctions — a Blue Footed Boobie perhaps. Accompanied by the music of the resident pianist, you can take your afternoon tea here, and enjoy pre-dinner cocktails before an impromptu dinner with new-found friends.

Library

Relaxing in the ship’s library, you can read books about the natural sciences, human history and conservation of the islands, and find maps and charts of this remarkable archipelago that sprawls over 36,000 square miles around the Equator. Here you can also find a choice of contemporary literature and an extensive collection of the classics, test your knowledge with daily quizzes and crosswords, or challenge someone to a game of chess or a board game.

Explorer Lounge

Attend informative lectures, recaps and briefings, and enjoy views of the islands in the Explorer Lounge on Deck 3. Along with a sophisticated AV system, there’s also a small photography station with an IMac where guests can download and edit their photographs during their time on board.

Although the emphasis onboard Silversea's Expedition cruises is the adventure, it doesn't mean you have to miss out on the chance to lie back relax and treat yourself to a massage. Or if staying active is more your thing, than hop onto one of the ship's treadmills and work up a sweat.


Fitness Centre

The Fitness Centre is open daily and offers a treadmill, elliptical trainer, stationary bike and a weight machine.

Jacuzzi

What better way to cool off in the tropics than with a dip in the Jacuzzi, waiting for you up top on the sun deck of your ship.

Massage Room and Beauty Salon

Onboard services in the Beauty and Massage Room include hair styling, manicures, pedicures, massages and other spa treatments. Appointments for these services may be made onboard the ship. To ensure the dates and times you prefer, we suggest you book your appointments early in your voyage, or in advance via My Silversea. Customary charges will apply.
