The Galapagos Holiday Cruise exceeded our expectations. Our naturalist guides, Karina Lopez & Ivan Lopez, were extremely knowledgeable (wildlife, geology, history) and enthusiastic about the Galapagos Islands. The crew (Marlon, Jorge, Maria, Diego, Jimmy, Eduardo, Julio, Rene and , of the “Flamingo I” was great. They worked together to meet our every need, making this an unforgettable, once-in-a-lifetime adventure. The wildlife and snorkeling were exceptional. We swam with penguins, sharks, rays, turtles, sea lions and countless tropical fish. The cabins on board “Flamingo I” were cozy and comfortable. The food was great and the activities were incredibly enjoyable, filling our cruise days with continuous hours of delightful excursions on land and in the water. I would recommend this trip, this crew, and these naturalists to anyone who loves nature and is interested in the Galapagos Islands. We enjoyed a party on board one night, had a wonderful Christmas Eve dinner and received a very special slideshow gift from Karina at the end of the cruise.
