A Galapagos expedition cruise, enjoyed aboard Silver Galapagos, brings you to one of the most isolated places in the world to encounter an abundant variety of wildlife species that is incredibly unique and found nowhere else on earth. Lying just off the western coast of South America, the Galapagos archipelago is inaccessible to most, yet this isolation has allowed nature to develop in ways exclusive to the islands. Experience it all with complimentary exploration activities including Zodiac tours, snorkeling, kayaking and nature hikes led by our highly experienced guides certified by the National Park of the Galapagos.
Silver Galapagos Facts
The menu in The Restaurant includes a wide range of international selections to accommodate the global palate of our guests.
Our chefs always include a choice of local Ecuadorean specialities to enrich your culinary journey, as well, but whether you choose Galapagos Lobster a 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.
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.
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, theres also a small photography station with an IMac where guests can download and edit their photographs during their time on board.
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 our resident pianist, you can take your afternoon tea here, and enjoy pre-dinner cocktails before an impromptu dinner with new-found friends.
