Silver Galapagos second phase of renovations complete

Silversea's intimate, all-suite Silver Galapagos is currently sailing on her first expedition voyage, following completion of a second phase of renovations undertaken in September, during a month-long dry dock in Panama.

All of the ship's suites, corridors and the Explorer Lounge have been completely refurbished. An elegant blue and beige color palette was utilised to create an interior décor echoing that of the recently refurbished Silver Discoverer.

These further enhancements have achieved a consistency of interior design within the expedition fleet. The 100-guest Silver Galapagos underwent an initial partial refurbishment last year, highlighted by the installation of new in-suite bathrooms featuring rich marble detailing, plus a new fitness centre, massage room, beauty salon, outdoor Jacuzzi, and Silversea's signature outdoor dining venue, The Grill.

Silver Galapagos sails Saturday to Saturday on seven-day voyages through the Galápagos Islands, following either a western or north central route. These expedition cruises offer adventurous travellers the life-enriching chance to discover a wild, pristine paradise that has long been regarded as a natural laboratory of evolution. On complimentary expeditions ashore, guided by an experienced expedition team (certified by the Galápagos National Park Service), Silversea's guests may experience up-close encounters with an abundance of wildlife that includes sun-basking land iguanas, giant tortoises, blue- and red-footed boobies, colourful marine iguanas, sea lions, penguins and Darwin's famous finches.
