Reina Silvia underwent an extensive refit in 2010, updating all her accommodation. She has 6 large cabins, all with large portholes or windows, TV and DVD player. Indoor and deck areas are impressively spacious and she carries kayaks free for passengers to use.
Reina Silvia, named after the queen of Sweden, is an American-built motor yacht with just 6 large cabins providing high quality accommodation. Each has an en-suite bathroom with a vanity unit, flush toilet, shower cubicle and hairdryer. The main cabin features individually controlled are conditioning, telephone, TV and DVD player. 4 of the cabins are on the lower deck with port holes, and 1 each on the main and top deck with full size windows. The top deck cabin is the largest and has a writing desk and minibar. All have photos of the islands decorating the walls.
The main deck houses the generous dining room, bar and lounge. This last has a projector and large screen used for presentations by the naturalist guide, and there is a library of natural history books and films for you to view between excursions. Standing at the bow is the ideal place to observe the scenery and maybe spot some dolphins and whales, while to the rear there’s a swimming platform. You can use the boat’s kayaks for further exploring.
The top deck has a large enclosed seating area with a large circular sofa and a bar. Sliding picture windows allow the refreshing ocean breeze to blow through. This is a great place to sit and chat to other passengers, and sip sundowners without missing the fine Galapagos vistas.
