Below you'll find our favorite luxury cruises in the Galapagos Islands. In the luxury class, you should expect the finest onboard accommodations, cuisine & most knowledgable naturalist guides. Cruise options vary from 4-Day trips (which most believe to be too short as you spend your first and last days in transit) to as long as 15-day itineraries circumnavigating the furthest reaches of the Galapagos. The type of boat is an important factor for your cruise as well. Several new catamarans that carry only 16-20 passengers provide some of the most luxurious onboard settings, while relatively larger cruise ships that carry up to 100 passengers onboard tend to have more spacious shared areas. Can't decide which cruise is right for you? Contact one of our Galapagos luxury cruise experts for help finding the perfect cruise.
