Part of the Silversea fleet, select Silver Galapagos itineraries are available through Tauck. Silver Galapagos (formerly Galapagos Explorer II) has been brought onboard to transport travelers to the exotic Galapagos Islands. Newly refurbished, Silver Galapagos's interior has been updated to an elegant blue and beige palette, and luxurious updates to the ship's suites, corridors, and the Explorer Lounge. Additions include a fitness center, beauty salon, massage room and more!

Being an all-inclusive product, gratuities, dining and beverages (including fine wines and spirits) are included in the price of each Silver Galapagos cruise. Also included are hosted adventures ashore and special onboard events. During each cruise Silversea will provide a team of explorers, scientists, authors, photographers and destination experts at your side as you explore remarkable destinations.

The highlight of any cruise aboard Silver Galapagos will surely be the complimentary expeditions. With so much to see on the Galapagos Islands, there will never be a shortage of things to explore or sights to see. From abundant exotic wildlife to amazing lava tunnels and volcanic fields this is truly a land untouched by civilization. Interact with the natural creatures that call these islands home and get closer with nature then you ever could at home!

A butler is available to pamper each guest sailing aboard Silver Galapagos. Don't worry about unpacking and setting up because that will be handled for you. Worry-free you will be able to get right to enjoying your vacation. All staterooms onboard have an amazing oceanview and most feature private balconies, a rarity for expedition vessels.

With a crew to guest ratio of nearly 1 to 1, each guest receives the exemplary service that Silversea Cruises is so well known for. Just because you are on an expedition vessel does not mean there will be any shortage of fine cuisine. Hiring some of the best chefs at sea, Silver Galapagos will provide and endless amount of decadent meals. Between the luxury aboard and the adventure ashore, a cruise aboard Silver Galapagos is the ultimate escape.
