Choosing Your First-Class Galapagos Cruise

If you’re going through tons of reviews about cruises in the Galapagos Islands but still can’t choose one, don’t panic. It’s normal to feel overwhelmed. Let’s face it, there are just so many ships to consider!

What we would like to suggest you — even without knowing your particular needs — is to start by checking out Surtrek’s selection of first-class ships. The options here are definitely great choices for combining adventure and comfort.

Of course, you can also simply contact one of our journey designers – which is, by the way, our strongest suggestion (wink).

So, how have we selected our cruises and cruise ships in this category? First of all, we’ve come up with a standardized process for selecting the “products” in this category. Do not get us wrong, this isn’t a simple checklist; rather, it’s a process that involves strict on-site and regular inspections that verify the authenticity, practicality, and of course value for the price of any cruise. We look at the journeys between the islands of the archipelago, considering how you’ll enjoy the scenery, sun and the breezes – with all of this coupled with premium service, as the crew must be constantly prepared to provide personalized service and make you feel at home.

Complying with international standards of superior cruise liners in terms of safety and security, the first-class yachts that we select provide all the basic comforts, including air-conditioning and both hot and cold water. At the same time, the cabins must be adequate and comfortable, with plenty of windows.

In addition, the land-excursion guides for our first-class cruises must be fully certified as Class II or III Naturalists, meaning they’re well trained in the biological sciences and are thoroughly knowledgeable of the archipelago’s wildlife as well as the evolution of the islands – plus, they’re at least bilingual.

Food? As this is such an important element of any trip, we have identified cruise ships with chefs who you can count on for particularly savory cuisine, artists who will serve up some of the best dishes you can imagine.

Travel time on these ships is expeditious, allowing your voyage to proceed smoothly without any loss of valuable time during nighttime sailing or when boarding or landing. As you can start to notice, this category of cruise prioritizes efficiency (a core value that we love).

Nevertheless, what’s important is that you choose a ship based on your needs. As a traveler, you might be looking for a fun time with friends, or a family vacation in which the main goal is to heighten your children’s appreciation of nature or a modest yet authentic experience of the islands with your significant one. Whatever the reason for your travel, it’s precisely that reason that should define the choice of your cruise.

The problem for prospective travelers, however, is that in analyzing all of this to make a solid decision, these days they have access to almost too much information (which often results in too little knowledge). But this is where we come in. Just tell us what you are looking for. More than likely we have just the right cruise in store for you!
