Set sail around the spectacular Galapagos in style aboard the exquisite M.Y. Grace, with two different seven-night cruises to choose between. Join the “Following in Darwin’s Footsteps” trip from Baltra Island, visiting Santa Fe Island, Tower Island, Darwin Bay, Isabela Island, Santiago Island, and Santa Cruz, before finishing on the island of San Cristobal. Alternatively, sail from San Cristobal to Baltra Island on the “Beyond Darwin’s Footsteps” voyage. Highlights include Española Island, Santa Cruz, Floreana Island, Rabida Island, North Seymour Island, and Black Turtle Cove. Activities on each adventure include snorkeling, kayaking, riding in Zodiac boats, and hiking, and you can be fascinated by an abundance of wildlife in one of the world’s most unique places.

Originally built in the late 1920s in Southampton, England, the M/Y Grace has a long and interesting heritage. She has had several names since being built, was used by the British during the war, and has undergone many changes since her early years. Offering luxury Galapagos small ship cruises today, visitors can enjoy timeless elegance and excellent onboard comfort and safety features. Indeed, the yacht hosted Grace Kelly and Prince Rainer of Monaco on their honeymoon! The original wheel from 1927 takes pride of place on the stern. There are nine stylish en suite cabins, each with air conditioning and a window or port hole. Enjoy a tasty buffet for breakfast and lunch, with dinner served indoors or outdoors. A well-stocked wine cellar ensures you never need to feel thirsty! Common areas include a beautiful sun deck, an attractive stern rest area, a Jacuzzi, an outdoor lounge and bar, and an indoor lounge. Onboard naturalists help you fully appreciate your surroundings and the wildlife you will see, and daily briefings are ideal for learning more about the wonders of the Galapagos.

The helpful crew members and experienced naturalists are waiting to welcome you aboard the MY Grace warmly. Book online to guarantee your departure dates on the trip of a lifetime around the magical Galapagos.
