Correction: The Silversea ship is called Silver Galapagos. I hope I got that right.
We were on a 7 day cruise on the Celebrity Xpedition and had booked their 10 day package which included a land portion in Quito including pick-up at the airport and return to the airport.
We then proceeded to the Amazon jungle in Ecuador. Just a 30 minute flight, then 2 1/2 hours in a motorized canoe, then 2 hours in a paddled canoe. Our lodge is called the Napo Wildlife Center. A laid-back place with hot water in a superb location! We saw wildlife that friends of ours did not see at a different lodge in the same jungle at the same time. I absolutely recommend it. The lodge arranged the flight and all transportation including our large suitcase.
