For those who want a little bit of decadence and a huge helping of relaxation and style when taking their voyage to the enchanted isles, checking out the Galapagos Luxury Cruises available for your holiday is an absolute must. After each visit to the unique lava fields and beautiful bays, inlets, volcanic craters, cloud forests and nature trails, which make up this remarkable archipelago, you'll be able to unwind in the heights of luxury. Each luxury yacht and deluxe expedition cruise ship is equipped with the latest in elegant fittings and amenities. Every small ship in this category will allow you to feel like royalty as you head off to another fascinating destination.
One of the highlights of traveling on board Galapagos Islands Cruise is that you can simply see much more of this stunning part of the world. As many of the islands and parts of the archipelago are inaccessible for land based travelers, the choice to join a luxury boat based itinerary gives you the full advantage of the fact that your cruise vessel can easily travel from one isle to another. Stopping at all the highlights and amazing visitor sites each Galapagos Island has to offer. You'll be able to get a much more personalized and intimate view of the archipelago both from land and from the sea and come away feeling inspired each evening, and waking up feeling utterly refreshed and eager to explore further, thanks to the comfortable and elegant cabin you've spent the night in.
Remember, the giant tortoise and other wildlife are the same regardless of the boat you choose. We also have a selection of Galapagos tour ships and yachts in other categories.
Practically, all your needs are catered for. Each of the luxury Galapagos catamaran and upmarket yachts featured in our collection, is fully equipped with everything you require to make your trip a dream come true. As soon as you board the additional investment in design, space and expedition facilities will be evident.
In the end it is all about expectations, here we list some common perks found on board a deluxe expedition vessel:
Unlike any other luxury cruise experience around the globe, the key focus of a Galapagos luxury cruise is to come close to nature in a private and respectful way. All expedition ships, catamarans and Galapagos luxury yachts carry 90 guests or less. Most of the smaller yachts and catamarans are appointed for only 16 guests. The naturalist guide leads the pace, facilitates nature encounters, offers on-sight and evening lectures, the more experienced and skilled the guide is, the better interaction with the natural world will be. The naturalists on-board the deluxe liveaboards have a better command of foreign languages, they also go through additional training for people skills and are willing to explore the extra mile to spot a Galapagos Penguin or slow down to allow time for more photos of a Nazca booby.
It is also nice to find a spacious zodiac where everyone can sit comfortably during transfers from the cruise vessel or yacht to the landing areas, well maintained sea kayaks with working paddles, proper snorkeling equipment and wetsuits.
