For more information about this ship or questions about traveling to the Galapagos Islands.

On the Boat Deck there are two new luxury master suites with double beds and a private balcony and two junior suites (with twin beds that can be joined to form a double) have been added as well as six superior-class cabins with twin beds. These are the highest standard of accommodations in comfort and style. The Ship is air conditioned and provides private facilities in each cabin with hot and cold water, fresh towels daily and plenty of storage.

The Sun Deck on the M/V Santa Cruz was lengthened and a deck-bar and Jacuzzi were installed, along with an observation area for dolphin and whale watching. The dining room, lounge and bar were also elegantly remodeled and there is a new reading room and library.
