This 6-day cruise takes you into the western section of the Galapagos Islands, a UNESCO World Heritage site of 19 islands located off the Ecuadorian coast. Choose between two itineraries and hop aboard the Odyssey, a luxury motor yacht.
The spacious yacht is fully appointed and accommodates a max of 16 passengers only. Unwind on one of the four decks (uncovered and shaded) and read about the islands in the living room-library. In the elegant dining room, enjoy snacks and buffet-style meals, beginning with lunch on the first day until breakfast on the day of departure. Water, tea, and coffee are provided, while cocktails and other beverages are available for purchase from the bar on board.
You’ll appreciate the first-class details: polished wood, upholstered seating, and the wooded flooring of the open-air sun deck that protects your bare feet from burning. In the evenings, your Galapagos National Park-certified naturalist guide provides briefings using a laptop, TV, and/or DVD equipment.
The yacht’s twin or single cabins have been designed with hotel-level comfort in mind. With parquet floors and private bathrooms, twin cabins average 215 square feet (20 square meters) in size and are located in the quieter upper front half of the yacht, away from the engine room, facilitating a good night’s rest during overnight passages. Beds in the twin cabins are matrimonial-style or can be converted into a double configuration. Plus, the main and upper deck cabins face seaward and feature panoramic windows that open. Or, enjoy the privacy of a single cabin, located in the lower deck partly below the waterline (porthole window only). Enjoy privately controlled air-conditioning in any cabin you select.
