One of the most up-to-date vessels for luxury cruising in the Galapagos Islands, La Pinta Galapagos Yacht has an excellent reputation for service while offering a variety of activities for all levels of outdoor enthusiasts.   With a capacity for up to 48 guests, this vessel provides superior accommodations, and is very popular with family groups all year round as it's especially child friendly. Take for instance, how the cabins are arranged: La Pinta has four extra-large connecting suites, which serve families particularly well. Bengaluru man with ‘physique of a bodybuilder’ dies of covid-19 anavar side effects male the boy who was bullied in school who grew up to be a bodybuilder - wales online In addition, La Pinta has 20 comfortable double or twin-bedded staterooms, plus four (4) triple cabins (the third person must be under 12 though), all with ocean views, private bathrooms with easy access to the showers, personal safes, and individually controlled air-conditioning. Indeed, the vessel’s cabins are among the largest of any vessels in the region, with floor-to-ceiling windows in all staterooms.   Spacious public areas on the boat's deck include a large observation lounge and bar, which can be used for outdoor dining. There is also a smaller outside “Sky Bar” towards the stern, as well as fore and aft observation decks, an exercise room, a Jacuzzi, a well-stocked natural history library-conference room, and an observation deck for dolphin, shark and whale watching. Then too, spotting marine wildlife in the privacy of your cabin is also a great idea ...after all, you have your own panoramic window. On the main deck is the reception area, a boutique, a doctor’s office, and a window-lined dining room with open seating (though there are no formal dress requirements). And thanks to the panoramic windows in the ship's social areas, almost permanent visual contact with the islands can be maintained.   To get the most out of your enriching Galapagos wildlife encounters, you will be accompanied by expert guides on La Pinta on daily land excursions, which are complemented by the ship’s faultless service, delicious cuisine, and plenty of comfort on board.
