M/V Xperience Galapagos Cruise Description:

The Xperience Galapagos Cruise is an upscale expedition vessel that offers unparalleled levels of comfort and service. Large enough to travel the Pacific in comfort and safety, small enough to dock at remote ports and negotiate inter-island landings with agility, the Xperience Galapagos Cruiseis the perfect size for an expedition-style adventure and the choice for travelers who prefer the intimate, comfortable atmosphere and polite service of a a larger cruise ship to a smaller boutique vessel. She features outstanding open-air spaces, comfortable cabins, and spectacular al fresco dining. Our 26 spacious staterooms accommodate up to 48 passengers – just half the number usually found on a ship this size. This means that passengers can enjoy the generous accommodation of a larger vessel, while preserving the atmosphere and exclusivity of a smaller yacht. Exploring with a small group of like-minded fellow travelers, guests can experience our unrivaled itineraries led by certified naturalist guides.
