Silversea Expeditions Galapagos Cruises
Silversea Expeditions offer exciting cruises of the Galapagos Islands on their new expedition ship, Silver Galapagos. Each voyage has been expertly designed with a view to giving guests the best possible luxury cruise experience in this fascinating region. We highly recommend Silversea’s Galapagos voyages to those seeking a luxury cruise experience off-the-beaten-path.
Situated just west of Ecuador, the Galapagos Islands are comprised of a cluster of volcanic land-masses that are spread either side of the Equator. First discovered in 1535 by the Bishop of Panama when his ship got caught up in westward currents when en route to Peru, the region has captivated environmental experts and geologists for hundreds of years.
Strictly governed by the Galapagos Special Law which was put in place to protect the region’s landscape and wildlife, the Galapagos Islands are best seen on a cruise and there’s no better way to explore them than with Silversea Expeditions.
