    Can't be better Galapagos Islands, Galapagos in September

    Boat&Cabin comfort - considering ship size, it was pretty great. i hardly felt any inconvinence. Crew service & friendliness - crews were really great. they were very friendly and they were ready to help you at any time. Food&Drinks onboard - Food were excellent. it was the best part of my voyage there. different menu everyday. i cannot explain enough but i would say that the best food on board i ever experienced(similan, maldives). in the refrigerator on second floor, beers, soft drinks were available any time. Diving & Dive guides - Diving was so great. the best thing was that you can play with sea lions. it was really awsome experience. lots of hammerhead sharks and whalesharks on almost every dives on darwin arch. the water temparature was warmer than i thoght so i didnt have any problem with my 5mm wetsuits. guides were doing their job good enough. Value for money - well.. it is lots of money guys. however i think the price is not that bad considering all those aspects above.

    Very comfortable, a lot of fun, good service and a great experience!! Additional costs for fuel does not make sense to me, should be included in the overall price.

    Enjoyable trip of a lifetime, though room for improvement Galapagos Islands, Galapagos in May

    Was very good and enjoyable. Glad I went inspite of the huge expense. A broken engine squeezed the dive schedule and meant missed dives. :( Only 2 dive guides for 16 divers (of varying ability) is not value for money and is a safety issue
