Newly built in 2018, the Galapagos Grand Majestic is one of the fastest yachts offering luxury cruises in the Galapagos archipelago. With a top speed of 25 knots, you spend considerably less time sailing between visitor spots, which means you to spend more time on the islands themselves, viewing the legendary wildlife and snorkeling in the island’s biodiverse waters.   To discover this living laboratory for yourself, Grand Majestic cruises consist of four, five, and eight-night itineraries year-round, led by a certified bilingual naturalist guide. On your own once-in-a-lifetime cruise, you’ll get up close with the amazing nature of the Galapagos Islands. Whether snorkeling with curious sea-lions, hiking to breathtaking viewpoints or visits to the breeding center to see Giant Tortoises, you’ll experience these islands up close and personally.   One of the cruise yacht’s hand-picked naturalist guides will be in charge of leading your daily land expeditions, pointing out the dazzling array of birds, reptiles, fish and mammals that you won’t find anywhere else, and explaining every single fact about the island’s exotic creatures and geological features you encounter.   You will also find that the Grand Majestic’s captain and eight crew have racked up many years of experience in the Galapagos, while the onboard chef will serve you up sumptuous Ecuadorian cuisine in addition to more familiar yet still mouthwatering international dishes.   As a luxury yacht, the ship offers great comfort in its expansive master suite and seven deluxe staterooms – all fitted with panoramic windows, cooling AC, and private en-suite bathrooms. Meanwhile, the Grand Majestic’s modern and stylish living areas include a large sun deck with a Jacuzzi and al fresco dining. The main deck’s open plan is where you’ll find the indoor dining room and bar area with panoramic windows.   For your bucket list cruise through the legendary Galapagos Islands, avail yourself of the sleek and elegant Galapagos Grand Majestic yacht, guided by your expert bilingual naturalist guide while you enjoy the high-quality personal services of its professional chef and crew.

star rating  Gran viaje, excelente servicio  - Los tours que nos recomendaron y que hicimos fueron muy buenos. Muy buena atencion y servicio.

También quiero mencionar que uno de nuestros vuelos se atrasó y ellos movieron mar y tierra para que no se perdiera el vuelo. Se terminó cambiando el vuelo gracias a ellos y hasta en el aeropuerto de galápagos ya sabían de nuestro caso. Muy agradecidos con Surtrek.
