Cruises to the Galapagos Islands, represent for many a once in a lifetime destination. The Swimming Iguanas, Blue Footed Boobies and Giant Tortoises are really just the tip of an incredible iceberg — with wildlife, flora and fauna that can't be seen anywhere else in the world.
The Galapagos Islands are filled with history, boasting some of the oldest species on the planet as well as playing host to Charles Darwin while he worked on his theory of evolution. The islands are filled with incredible creatures and stunning scenery and an expedition cruise is the best way to take it all in. For our top tips on choosing and preparing for your Galapagos Islands cruise, check out our amazing Galapagos guide.
The Silver Galapagos and Celebrity Xpedition are offering cruises to the Galapagos Islands. Silver Galapagos is Silversea Cruises' new expedition ship and combines 6* luxury with the incredible experience of visiting the Galapagos Islands on an expedition class ship.
Onboard both the Silver Galapagos and Celebrity Xpedition you will be joined by a variety of nature and geology experts, who will guide you through the wildlife and history of the islands and their fascinating species. A selection of excursions and trips onboard zodiacs are all included in your cruise fare, as are the onboard lectures.
After a day of seeing the unique species — which include approximately 29 land birds, six mammals, giant tortoises, three types of land iguana, marine iguanas, invertebrates and many more — an elegant evening onboard a cruise ship offers the perfect end to the day.
Silver Galapagos offers the most incredible experience you could imagine, combining 6* luxury all inclusive cruises with an expedition class ship. Expect food that is out of this world, a wonderful selection of fine wines & cocktails and the most incredible service at sea. Perfect after rattling around in a zodiac or hiking around the stunning islands.
Celebrity Cruises offer 5* cruising and the Celebrity Xpedition boasts the wonderful food and service you would expect of their larger ships, but on a more intimate scale. You can still enjoy champagne and piano music before dinner and don your favourite dress, but don't expect West End-style musicals or casinos onboard.
