Review for Isabela II to South America

2-5 Cruises • Age 30s

I was aboard the Isabella II boat in the first days of January 2015 at the Galapagos Islands. The cruise was an amazing experience. I'm used to large cruises and this only had 36 passengers on board. I enjoyed it a lot. Cabins: normal size, two single beds, a small couch, a desk and a chair, plenty of cabinet space, normal sized bathroom with a shower. There was no TV, which I thought would be a ...

My husband is 6’5” and it sure was nice having a large bed and lots of room on board. Also, internet – we didn’t have it the first couple of days on the western side of Isabella, but after that the signal was good. There were 37 passengers onboard ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

I sailed on Yacht La Pinta in April 2012. I had always wanted to go to the Galapagos but the high single supplement made it impossible. By chance, an Australian travel agent had chartered the boat as part of a longer, more in depth trip around South America. When this trip hadn’t filled up, they advertised the Galapagos cruise at a discounted rate. I jumped at the opportunity and found myself in ...
