Galapagos Cruise

Originally built in the late 1920s, 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 a sense of timeless elegance and excellent onboard comfort and safety features. Indeed, the yacht hosted Grace Kelly and Prince Rainer of Monaco on their honeymoon! 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 either indoors or outdoors. A well-stocked wine cellar ensures you never need to feel thirsty!
