Silver Origin has redefined luxury Galápagos adventure travel. Welcome to Ultra-luxury! Designed and built specifically for Galápagos, this remarkable 330ft long expedition ship brings the ultimate Galápagos experience to a maximum of only 100 guests, looked after by 90 crew.

Spectacular suites Silver Origin features suite-only accommodation throughout. As well as huge picture windows, you'll have your own private veranda from where you can soak up the sights and sounds of the Galápagos and its wildlife.

Every suite comes with a butler service - and with 24 hour room service and in-suite dining options, your every need will be completely catered for.

When you're spending your day discovering the unique wildlife and habitats of the Galápagos you will need a good night's sleep. That's why every Silver Origin suite also has a pillow menu for ultimate comfort.

Of course your accommodation is fully climate controlled, with a beautiful en suite bathroom, luxurious linens and toiletries, and complimentary expedition gear to help you get the most from the islands.

Unique communal spaces With plenty of space available, there are a host of different communal areas for you to enjoy.

Basecamp is a fantastic "knowledge lounge" and the perfect place to gather before embarking on your zodiac trip to the next landing site. Featuring a wealth of reference material and an interactive wall, it's the ideal way to learn more about what you are about to see.

The Explorer lounge offers both indoor and outdoor relaxed seating. A carefully curated library and floor-to-ceiling windows make this an ideal place to watch the Galápagos go by while you enjoy a cocktail. In the evenings, a live pianist will entertain you.

Silver Origin has a beautiful observation lounge in the forward part of ship, above the bridge, offering unparalleled views in luxurious comfort, while sun worshippers can stretch out on the sun deck, which has both open and shaded areas, as well as a whirlpool.

Truly all-inclusive Dining options on board are extensive, authentic, and delicious. There are a choice of two full-service restaurants, and chefs will prepare the most delicious Ecuadorian and international dishes to suit all palates. All dietary requirements can be catered for. Of course, if you prefer to dine in your suite, your butler will arrange this for you.

Everything is included in your fare, including a large range of wines, spirits, cocktails and more. You can enjoy drinks in the Explorer Lounge, on the sundeck, in the Observation lounge, or on your private veranda, all delivered with exquisite service.

Amazing animal encounters Silver Origin boasts the highest number of zodiacs and guides per guest in the Galápagos fleet. This means that you won't be waiting long at the stern marina for your ride to shore, and you will explore the archipelago in small, intimate groups.

With a choice of two 7-day itineraries, featuring the best visitor sites in the islands, you'll enjoy a remarkable introduction to the wonderful creatures that inhabit these unique islands.

Our comment Silversea have done it again. Silver Origin simply redefines luxury adventure travel. Her suites are simply stunning, and having a butler to take care of your every need is a wonderful indulgence. With amazing communal spaces and a team of superb chefs, your evening's on board will be delightful. You can enjoy intimate exploration with your naturalist guide and then come back to "big ship" luxuries - a perfect mix!

Food & Drinks on board the Silver Origin

The food on our Galapágos Cruises is among the very best you will find in South America. Most of the on-board chefs are internationally trained and have prior experience working in the best hotels and restaurants in Ecuador and indeed around the world.

You can expect a first-class selection of food, including a good variety of fresh fruits and vegetables, locally sourced poultry and fish/seafood, rice and pasta dishes. Most boats will always include some typical Ecuadorian dishes on the menu during your cruise. If you have specific dietary requirements then these can usually be accommodated by the chef providing you have given advance notice. Please make sure you tell us about any allergies or dietary requirements you have at the time you book with us. If you leave it until you arrive at the dockside, then it may well be impossible to accommodate your needs.

Most boats serve a range of options at meal times in a relaxed buffet-style. At the first class and luxury end of the market, some boats have more formal dining where you will be served at your seat. However the atmosphere is always relaxed on board our cruises, and never stuffy or formal.

Sustainable Tourism

At Galapatours we love and respect the pristine ecosystems and fascinating wildlife of the Galápagos Islands, and we insist that our cruise partners do too. To protect the archipelago all our cruise vessels must have sophisticated water filtration systems, modern efficient engines, and strict maintenance schedules to minimize pollution.

The Galápagos National Park authority also defines exact cruising routes that dictate which ships can visit highlights at specific times, as well as limiting passenger numbers. These measures ensure that animals and habitats are not disturbed by too many visitors.

Our commitment extends beyond the mandatory environmental standards for cruise vessels in the region: A portion of your trip price now contributes to our Conservation Project. This initiative empowers local communities to protect their territory, engage in reforestation, and prepare for long-term environmental stewardship. This way, your trip contributes to environmental protection and truly shows how travel can be a force for good! And you can also play your part by traveling responsibly and following our Eco Guidelines during your stay.

Silver Galapagos Cruise
Luxury

Silver Galapagos

\- “Big ship” facilities with great itineraries \- All-inclusive, nothing to pay onboard \- All-suite accommodation \- Dedicated butler service There’s no doubting that a small yacht can have its charm, but when it comes to facilities, features and space you can’t beat a full-size ship. The Silver Galápagos is a luxury 100-passenger expedition vessel that has been fully designed to meet the needs of Galápagos touring. Her owners have made every effort to make her more than just your floating accommodation, but also an integral part of your Galápagos islands experience. **New heights in luxury** Silver Galápagos’ operators have a renowned reputation in the market as being the leading provider of luxury cruises around the world. In Silver Galápagos they continue this “best of the best” tradition, offering their guests one of the most luxurious ways to experience the Galápagos. Silver Galápagos provides stunning all-suite accommodation across her 5 decks. With 75 crew for only 100 passengers, you are assured of the highest levels of attention and service. Indeed, every suite has butler service, and staying onboard is akin to visiting the best 5\* hotels. The sumptuous suites are beautifully decorated with beige, cream and blue accents and an emphasis on light and space. All suites enjoy sea and Galápagos island views through panoramic windows, with Veranda and Silver suites benefitting from glass sliding doors opening on to private balconies. Your suite has independent climate control, plenty of storage space, marbled en suite bathrooms, flat screen televisions, minibar, and unlimited wifi. Top-end suites offer extras including complimentary sparkling wines and personal espresso machines. To put it simply, there is no finer way to enjoy all that the Galápagos has to offer. **Unrivalled space** Thanks to her size at 290 ft long and 50 ft wide there is plenty of space. With only 100 guests onboard it’s always easy to find a quiet corner. With all this space also comes plenty of facilities. As befits a mini cruise liner, Silver Galápagos is equipped with a charming library, a spa offering treatments for men and women, a beauty salon, a fitness center with world-class equipment and stunning sea views, an outdoor jacuzzi, and even a romantic art deco-style piano bar where pre-dinner cocktails are served. Your ticket is fully all-inclusive - so there’s nothing extra to pay for anything on board. When it comes to dining, you have two choices. First is the al fresco Grill. During the evening, hot lava stones are brought to your table for you to cook your own meal exactly how you wish, choosing from a range of authentic local ingredients and produce. By day, the grill becomes an open rotisserie and gourmet salad bar, perfect for lunch. The Silver Restaurant offers a more formal, yet still relaxed experience, with a wide range of international and Ecuadorian specialties on offer. Our favorite is the Galápagos Lobster à la Galapaguera, although a close second has to be the filet mignon with truffles. Both restaurants offer open-seated dining, meaning you can eat whenever you wish, and with whomever you want. This fits perfectly with the Galápagos vibe and makes it a delight to mingle with your like-minded fellow guests. **The Islands - star of the show** Despite the remarkable luxury offered by Galápagos Silver, she still pales in comparison to the wonder of the Galápagos Islands. With a choice of 2 seven-day itineraries and 7 National Park-approved naturalist guides, you will enjoy stunning encounters with unique wildlife and endangered habitats. Excursions include snorkeling (the ship has a dedicated snorkeling deck with all equipment), paddling sea kayaks, taking panga rides, and hikes and tours of a great range of visitor sites. The operators pride themselves not only on the luxury of their ship but also how they showcase the best of the islands to their guests. The itineraries have been carefully designed to give you a fantastic flavor of the islands, and neither is “better” than the other. Call one of our friendly Galápagos experts today to discuss which might suit you better, and we can help you make an informed choice. **Our thoughts** Silver Galápagos is a beautiful ship. With her wonderful all-suite accommodation, we can’t recommend her more highly. Thoughtful touches are everywhere, from having your own butler to the open-seat dining arrangements to the wonderful spa treatments and great cocktails - all of which are included in your fare! With 1 crew member for every 1.3 passengers, you will enjoy the highest crew ratio in the Galápagos fleet, and it shows. Call us today, as places on this favorite ship are always selling out - often many months in advance.

For example, she has been equipped with a Dynamic Positioning System that allows her to remain stationary without the need to drop anchors that can damage the sea bed.

Oh, and if it's a special occasion cruise, do try and get either a Royal Suite or the Penthouse - they are simply remarkable.

The food on board is a particular highlight, and we love the informal "eat when you are ready" policy of her restaurants - and her dedicated outside Grill! Boasting some of the most experienced guides in the Galápagos, a cruise on Celebrity Xpedition is a fantastic way to experience the very essence of these remarkable islands while enjoying a luxurious and relaxing on board experience.
