Select one of our favorite, hand-picked Galapagos cruise ships chosen for their superior levels of service, generous cabin space and public areas, top-quality cuisine and high-level naturalist guides. The Santa Cruz II is a newly-remodeled 90 passenger ship known for having the top multi-lingual naturalists. The Galapagos Legend is a classic 100-passenger vessel excellent for children and families. Even smaller, the 48-passenger  Celebrity Experience or the 40-guest Isabela II are an excellent compromise between the larger ships and small 16 passenger catamarans and single hulled yachts.
