If you are going through tons of reviews of cruises in the Galapagos Islands and cannot choose one, do not panic. It is normal to feel overwhelmed. To begin with, there are so many! What we would like to suggest you, based on a very general criteria without knowing your needs, is to start by checking our selection of first-class category ships. Options here are definitely great choices for combining adventure and comfort. Of course, you can also simply contact one of our journey designers – which is by the way, our strongest suggestion (wink).
So what is there to offer in this category? First of all, we do not base our list on how the product is being presented. We, ourselves, categorize it. And how do we do this? We can assure, it is not merely based on the “basics”. This wonderful destination, especially if on a special occasion such as a honeymoon to the Galapagos, does not deserve to be experienced “on basics”. Hence, we have come up with a series of standardization for selecting products under this category. Do not get us wrong, it is not a check-list; the process involves strict on-site and routine-inspections. Anyway, this includes authenticity, practicality, and of course, value for price. Now, how does this come into context? Imagine traveling between the islands of the archipelago while taking in the scenery and enjoying the sun and breeze – all this coupled with premium service, as the crew is constantly prepared to offer personalized service and make you feel at home. Complying with international standards of superior cruise liners in terms of safety and security, first-class yachts provide all the basic comforts, including air-conditioning and both cold and hot water. In addition, the land-excursion guides on are fully certified as Class II or III Naturalists, meaning they’re well trained in the biological sciences and are thoroughly knowledgeable of the archipelago’s wildlife as well as the evolution of the islands – plus, they are multilingual. Cabins are adequate and comfortable, with plenty of windows. Food? Very important; you can count on chefs that truly enjoy being praised for their cuisine and will thus cook you the best they can offer. Travel is expeditious, allowing your voyage to proceed smoothly without any loss of valuable time when boarding or landing. As you can stat to notice, this category prioritizes efficiency (a core value we love).
Nevertheless, what’s important is that you choose a ship based on your needs. A traveler may look for a fun time with friends, a family vacation to the Galapagos in which the main goal is to transform the appreciation of nature of the children, or a modest yet authentic experience of the islands with your significant one. Whatever the reason of your travel, it is precisely this – once again, the “reason” – what should define the choice of your cruise. The problem for prospective travelers, however, is that they have few information for analyzing and thus make a decision. But then again, here is where we come in. So tell us what you are looking for; we might have just the right thing for you.
“I enjoyed the scenery and the exotic wildlife on the islands very much. The airport transfers in both directions went smoothly and the service on board was very good.”
