Onboard Experience

Embark on a ship built with Galápagos Island cruising in mind! From your first briefing, boat drill and launch… to the excitement of your first wet landing… the Silver Galápagos provides all that is needed for you to explore these islands that time forgot in total comfort. Board your ship in the afternoon for a safety briefing followed by lunch before circumnavigating the island of Daphne... ripe with a variety of one-of-a-kind bird species. Your first night aboard ship begins with an official Captain's welcome cocktail reception and briefing followed by an a la carte dinner. Meet and mingle with fellow guests as you enjoy creative international and Ecuadorian dishes. Retire to your comfortable and contemporarily designed stateroom as you fall asleep dreaming of all that lies ahead this week. When you awake in the morning, you'll enjoy a hearty breakfast to fuel you for the day and get fitted for snorkeling equipment before heading out for a morning walk and exploration. Following lunch on board your ship, you will spend the afternoon kayaking or snorkeling… your choice… as you observe wildlife up close. Once back onboard the ship at days' end, a recap and briefing will take place with onboard naturalists who will discuss wildlife encounters and observations. Enjoy dinner in The Grill as you cook your food to taste directly at your table in the open-air or enjoy the continental and regional specialties of The Restaurant. Later that evening, retire to your cabin for a luxurious and rejuvenating nights sleep… resting up for the daily adventures that lie ahead. Read Less
