Silversea Expeditions is offering travelers the opportunity to take advantage of special cruise and land packages for its 2013 Galápagos program. Eight new shorter Silver Galapagos voyages of just 3 and 4 days have been combined with pre- and post-cruise South America land adventures to create a collection of holiday packages of 8, 10 or 11 days.
Ellen Bettridge, Silversea’s president of the Americas, said: “These new cruise and land packages are convenient options for the luxury traveler who wants to experience a Galápagos cruise adventure and also explore some of the most intriguing regions of South America — but who may not have time for a lengthy vacation.”
