Goldilocks in the Galapagos
Depending on where you live (we live in the Northern Hemisphere, where it is decidedly snowy/icy/chilly), right about now might be the perfect time to start daydreaming about a tropical vacation. Might we suggest you start daydreaming about somewhere sand and sunny?
Ok then. Let’s start with what this cruise is not. It is not crowded. Nor gigantic. No jumbo cruise liners here. No themed dinners. No wristbands for open bars. Casinos? Shows? Bands? Nada, nada, and nada.
Still with us? Great.
Here’s what we are talking about: Small, intimate ships. Luxe digs. Spacious modern cabins. Private jacuzzis and onboard chefs. Beyond that, we’re talking about adventure and exploration. You’ll visit a new island every day, no two islands are alike. You’ll hike over the path of destruction left from a volcanic eruption, making you wonder if you’re still on the same planet. You’ll snorkel with sea lions and sun yourself on volcanic sand beaches. You’ll kayak in the sea and swim with sharks along the coral reefs. It will be relaxing, amazing, and completely full of wildlife.
Ready to go?
We recommend checking out the catamarans of the Haugan Cruises (pictured). If we were Goldilocks, this would be our “just right” pick. Out of the dozens of ships that cruise the waters of the Galapagos, these boats are some of our favorites. Not too big, not too small (and did you check out that onboard hot tub?).
Victoria swims with the sharks, hikes volcanoes, rappels down skyscrapers, and manages to plan all manner of trips to Latin America. Give her a ring to chat wildlife + cruises.
