Silversea has launched its second expedition ship, the Silver Galapagos.
Following a major refurbishment, the 100-passenger ship, which was formerly named Galapagos Explorer II, recently embarked on its first-ever voyage under the new branding.
Following a series of upgrades, the all-suite ship now features new upholstery, carpeting and curtains in all areas of the ship, plus Wi-Fi, and passengers can stream movies and live TV news broadcasts to their mobile devices.
Each revamped cabin now comes with a renovated bathroom including walk-in rain showers, plus flatscreen TVs, custom-made mattresses and new bed linen.
Finally, Silversea has invested in a new onboard fitness centre, massage room, beauty salon, outdoor jacuzzi, and a new outdoor dining venue, The Grill.
“It is our aim that this ship will not only offer our guests the highest level of comfort and service, but also enlighten them to the rarity and beauty of the Galapagos Islands,” said Manfredi Lefebvre d’Ovidio, Silversea’s chairman.
Silver Galapagos will now sail a series of seven-day roundtrip voyages from Baltra Island in the Galapagos.
