A Brand New Galapagos Ship With Years of Heritage

Conceived for operations in remote areas, the state-of-the-art Santa Cruz 2 is an ideal expedition vessel for exploring the Galápagos Islands. At just over 70 metres long, the generous, five-deck ship holds 50 cabins for 90 guests and features an expert expedition crew, a fleet of modern zodiac boats for exploration and ample sized social areas to enjoy once back on board.

From outdoor and indoor dining areas, the fitness room and Jacuzzis to the elegant bar and lounge, not to forget the well-stocked library, the ship is designed to please with sophisticated simplicity. The ship also enjoys a great ratio of crew and guides to passengers which ensures great service on board too.

The Swedish-designed cabins reflect the latest in cruise trends. Comfortable spaces and large picture windows offer great views and are a great space to relax after a day of active exploring. The ship has 50 cabins for 90 guests, 36 of which can be interconnected, offering flexibility for guests from single travellers to families.
