When Do You Want To Go?

Conceived for operations in remote areas, Hurtigruten's state-of-the-art Santa Cruz II is an ideal expedition vessel for exploring the Galapagos Islands. At just over 70m 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. Comfortable spaces and large picture windows offer great views and are a wonderful space to relax after a day of active exploring. 36 of the 50 cabins can be interconnected, offering flexibility for guests from single travellers to families.

The ship also enjoys a great ratio of crew and guides to passengers which ensures the excellent service on board that guests have come to expect from a Hurtigruten expedition cruise.


  • State of the art design
  • Excellent communal facilities for guests
  • Five spacious decks
