Extensive Review of 4 Night Cruise; MV Santa Cruise (Family Trip)

Review for MV Santa Cruz to Galapagos

This review concerns the 5 day/4 night Eastern Galápagos Islands cruise on the MV Santa Cruz, operated by Metropolitan Touring, through which you can book directly. I think I would use the term expedition, as opposed to cruise, as this is a fulfilling, active adventure that is inclusive of all excursions. We opted for this shorter itinerary so that our children (ages 11/14/16) would remain ...

We took the Metropolitan Tours 5-day 4-night excursion to the Eastern Galapagos islands aboard the M/V Santa Cruz. The trip was memorable for the number of wildlife species that could be observed close-up. It was also memorable in being fairly strenuous.

We then did the 5 days / 4 nights expedition cruise on board our MV ...

I would like to share the experience of my trip to the Galapagos with you. I bought a cruise with the ship Santa Cruz. It was a last Minute offer including flight for “only” 1300$.

We took a small boat to our ship and started our day with a welcome ...

Galapagos Adventure on the M/V Santa Cruz

I'm totally a novice cruiser, I tend to do more land adventures, but to really see the Galapagos, the cruises allow you to take in more of the islands. This was my first time on a completely escorted program and only my second cruise ever. I have however, spent extensive time in Europe, Central America, Mexico and the Caribbean and usually stay in more premium accommodations. Since this is Cruise ...
