Galapagos Islands, Ecuador

If you want to experience the Galápagos in supreme comfort, a cruise aboard the 14-guest Passion is the way to go! Originally a private family yacht, she has been completely refurbished for cruising the Galápagos in chic, sophisticated style. The original name of the Passion was Bellissima (“gorgeous” in Italian), and with one step aboard, you’ll soon see why. Incredibly spacious public areas include a panoramic sky lounge and bar, and nearly 2,000 square feet of wonderful teakwood decks with multiple places to lounge, including a secluded sundeck with an inviting hot tub. Gourmet meals are served in the formal dining room or outdoors on the upper deck—al fresco dining is one of the delights of traveling by boat. While the yacht is fully air-conditioned throughout, each of the six staterooms offer individually controlled air-conditioning and en suite bathroom with bathtub and hot shower, hair dryer, and USB charger. Of the four standard cabins, one features a queen bed, one two twin beds, while two others offer one full and one twin bed each. The two luxurious suites have a king size bed, private lounge area, and his-and-hers bathrooms, in rose-colored marble. Stabilizers minimize motion at sea so you can enjoy a most comfortable ride. And with a 1:1 passenger-to-crew ratio, you’re ensured of first-class service throughout your cruise.
