The Origin motor vessel, named for Charles Darwin’s insightful work The Origin of the Species, promises to be the most environmentally efficient and most comfortable 20-passenger yacht sailing in the waters of the archipelago. Within a year, it has gained this reputation, and much more. As a matter of fact, in an impressive rate, it has already positioned itself as one of the best Galapagos cruise.
Among the luxury cruises to the Galapagos Islands, this one distinguishes itself very easily. Although, it is rather a discreet luxury; elegant, stylish, modest and serene. It possesses 10 different deluxe double staterooms to choose from – two of which able to accommodate up to three people. Measuring approximately 140 square feet, each cabin is brimming with amenities, which include nightstands, an ample sectional closet, a sitting area, modern décor with local art work, fine linens and towels, climate controls, satellite TV/DVD, iPod docking station, a safe deposit box and a private bathroom. Each bathroom includes hot water, full facilities, and features such as hair-dryers, slippers and robes, as well as soap and shampoo that are both bio-degradable. Your spacious cabin will be located on the main “Beagle” deck, with a panoramic window so you can wake up and fall asleep to the stunning views of the ocean and the archipelago. As an additional note: all cabins are cleaned twice daily and laundry service is available. This service, of course, is also eco-friendly.
As for the social areas, throughout the yacht you will find great extras such as a fitness room equipped with cardio machines, spacious social areas, satellite TV, and a spacious sun deck equipped with a fully stocked open wet-bar, BBQ, lounges and hammocks. On top of all this, you can enjoy the available kayaks, paddle boards, wet suits and snorkeling equipment for your own use when permitted. Masseuse are available on charters (only) for an additional charge. In addition, the ship possesses semi-private nooks for you to escape to and relax on the boat, or you can use one of the Origin’s three lounge areas, its library, computer station or the social area with satellite TV. As you can already notice, it is an attractive option if you’re looking for a Galapagos cruise for couples.
The yacht will run two basic 8-day itineraries, a southern/central route and a western/northern route. During these times, every need of the guests will be catered to cater to by the ship’s two expert naturalist guides, a concierge, a well-trained experienced crew and a well-qualified captain. The naturalist guides and captain are hand-picked to provide you with an educational week and exceptional service while you are touring each island. The Origin combines modern sophistication and a high level of comfort and service, with indoor and al-fresco gourmet dining experiences (including Ecuadorian and Peruvian specialties), exciting physical activities and a dose of intellectual science providing guests a life enriching experience.
