Very nice, it was one of a lifetime trip.

Too many to lis. We mainly enjoyed exploring every island with the unique birds, animals and sea life. Although it was our first time snorkeling, we loved and planning on doing more in the future.

Lots of baby and nesting birds. Swimming with sea lions. Mating turtles. Tons of fish and sharks/rays when snorkeling. I saw all of the species i had hoped to see.

Amazing Experience

Went on a cruise with the Natural Paradise from Nov 12 to 19; amazing! Never been to the Galapagos before, but I traveled a lot throughout Africa, South- and Middle-America, Asia and more; there is no place like Galapagos on earth! The best way to enjoy the beauty of the islands and the animals is by cruise; and Natural Paradise knows exactly how to do this. Every day again, the crew was giving 200% to offer excellent (in-between activity) snacks, meals (buffets), your cabin would normally be cleaned multiple times a day (everytime you go on an activity). They make you feel like a king. The naturalist guide Gustavo was very good as well. I would highly recommend the Natural Paradise!

You must do this!

We enjoyed this trip so much, the crew was fantastic, the international group of guest blended together so well, the ship is well maintained, the excursions are all very worth it. The program is dense though. Only drawback: We ran out of beverages during the last three days, first wine, then milk, then beer, despite of having made a supply chain stop a day before. This may not happen at such prices.
