MV Santa Cruz
Cruise lengths: 4 and 5 nights
Max. Passengers: 90
Another luxury liner that has you sailing around the Galapagos in style. The cabins all have large, ocean-view windows and though there are 90 people allowed on board, it never feels crowded. Formal dinners complement the buffet breakfasts and lunches, and the guides are some of the best in the country.
The most famous, and diverse, collection of wildlife on the planet. This delicate ecosystem has very strictly controlled visitation programmes, but once you arrive, it’s like a natural wonderland. Turtles, sharks, manta rays, sea lions…there is nothing like this collection of islands anywhere else.
