Silversea Cruises has opened the books for its 2013 and 2014 Galápagos programs. Its year-round schedule of seven-day expedition voyages aboard the 100-guest, all-suite Silver Galapagos will begin operating in late September.
Two itineraries will depart Saturdays roundtrip from Baltra Island.
One option will explore the western, southern and eastern islands, including Santiago, Bartolomé, Isabela, Fernandina, Floreana, San Cristóbal and Santa Cruz. The North Central itinerary will explore the northeast, central and southeast islands of Santa Cruz, Genovesa, Seymour Norte, San Cristóbal, Española and Plazas Sur. Fares start at $5,450 per person based on double occupancy.
The Galápagos cruises will include complimentary expeditions ashore guided by an experienced team certified by the Galápagos National Park Service. The Silver Galapagos will include ocean-view accommodations, gourmet cuisine, butler service, complimentary beverages, wines and spirits throughout the ship, and a stocked in-suite beverage cabinet.
