What you experience in the Galapagos in terms of flora and fauna is beyond any description. Prepare yourself for unique once in a lifetime experience.
The Grace’s crew was outstanding. Starting with Edison (cruise director) who was always making sure everything was up to our satisfaction and solving any issue promptly and with a smile on his face. Saul, the barman was also very kind and friendly. Nelly in housekeeping was also great. The captain was a very nice gentleman and very open and friendly to all passengers. Our guide, Rafael, was fantastic. Great knowledge about the Galapagos, very friendly and flexible. He was always on top of things making sure everyone was having a good experience and his most remarkable attribute is his passion for his job.
The excursions were great and since we were only 15 guests this makes all the difference because you get to experience the island without too many people. The same applies for the snorkelling activities.
Even though the main focus in this trip is the flora and fauna of the islands, the level of service in the Grace was outstanding and makes the experience even better. Cabins are very spacious as well as the common areas. The Dining menus were very good and varied.
The overnight sailing can get very rocky at times so be prepared for possible sea sickness (not in my case, but some fellow passengers did). They had all the snorkelling gear ready for us by size so it made everything gone smoothly.
I will definitely without any doubts recommend this cruise and I will definitely go again for the other itinerary.
