The new boat will sleep 90 guests in 50 contemporary designed cabins across three decks. Guests can choose from luxuriously appointed single, double and family cabins, or opt for an exceptional standard of accommodation on the Panorama Deck, where guests will receive elevated service and carefully refined extras such as a take-home Galapagos coffee table book, a tablet loan for each cabin, amenities L’Occitane, and more.
While aboard the new Santa Cruz II Cruise, guests can relax in the beautifully designed communal areas and viewing platforms, including indoor and outdoor dining options, lounge bar, a well-stocked library, two indulgent ocean view hot tubs and a gym.
Creative Ecuadorian and international cuisine will be prepared under the watchful eye of the Santa Cruz II’s Cordon-Bleu trained Gastronomy Director, Byron Rivera. Freshly caught fish and seafood and locally grown organic fruit and vegetables will feature heavily on menus served in the colourful Beagle Dining Room indoors or al-fresco on the Panorama Deck.
The Santa Cruz II Cruise will take guests on four, five and nine night itineraries in the Northern, Eastern and Western Galapagos Islands and each expedition will be accompanied by seven of our company exceptionally knowledgeable guides plus an Expedition Leader in charge of making the most of each day’s outings. Activities can be tailored to each guest’s personal interests and range from daily land expeditions to a host of aquatic activities free of charge, including ocean kayaking, snorkelling with sea lions and glass bottom boat expeditions – all of the options permitted by the Galapagos National Park.
The Santa Cruz II Cruise offers more flexibility in making groups – depending on language, physical abilities and/or personal interests (e.g. shorter walks, glass bottom boat rides instead of snorkeling, children’s panga rides). There are options for all, the active, for families, for underwater enthusiasts, nature lovers… something for everyone. Combine these with the crew’s deep sense of service and we feel each and every one of the ship’s guests will return home enriched, revived and inspired.
