On Board the Galápagos Cruise Ship 'Eclipse'
A Galápagos cruise reveals this extraordinary destination at its most rewarding. With shore excursions to the islands led by expert naturalists, along with stimulating on-board activities, a Galápagos holiday provides a well-rounded adventure for every age and every type of traveller. At the heart of your Galápagos experience is 'Eclipse,' the adventure cruise ship that takes you to the islands in comfort and style. Note that the ‘Eclipse’ will be rebranded to ‘Xperience’ beginning with March 2017 departures.
Teak-lined decks, picture windows in a third of the staterooms and half the passengers of any other ship this size in the Galápagos Islands underscore the luxury factor on the Eclipse. It carries just 48 passengers (plus 35 crew members) quietly through the archipelago, which is still only accessible by ship.
