Santa Cruz CRUISE SHIP

The Santa Cruz is the largest cruise ship operating at the Galapagos Islands and is renowned for top class service, excellent guides and nature lectures, fine dining, and an impressive array of onboard facilities. Cruise ships may not be to everyone’s taste but can offer greater stability compared to the smaller Galapagos yachts as well as a very polished level of service.

Santa Cruz Deck plan

Important Note: We are more than happy to request the cabin of your choice at time of booking - just let us know. But please be aware that but the final decision on cabin allocation is always in the hands of the yacht operator so Happy Gringo cannot be held responsible if the operator decides to allocate you to an alternative cabin.

PAST CLIENT SANTA CRUZ SHIP FEEDBACK

“Originally I did have some doubts about being aboard such a large yacht at Galapagos with so many other people, but the personalised service we received from our guide really made up for this and the overall level of service we received really was first class. Recommended!” (Gillian & Vicky Taylor, UK)

* Prices may increase if Galapagos yacht operators put prices up for certain popular dates (especially July / August)
or other Galapagos agencies sell their charter spaces to us at higher prices.
