The crew and staff of the Santa Cruz II you were all great fun and work so hard to ensure that every single person enjoyed their time on and off the ship. The cruise was just perfect and surpassed our expectations. I cannot praise it enough it was truly a trip of a lifetime for us both and one that we will remember for the rest of our days! Thank you!
I loved every minute of the cruise. The Santa Cruz II staff are excellent — very knowledgeable as well as patient with the passengers!
A magical experience of nature and animals on a great boat with fantastic staff! The other guests were also wonderful people. Worth every penny!
This cruise/tour was exceptional! The staff was very attentive, anticipating our needs before we realized we had one. The tour was very well organized. They kept us very busy, we got to see and do a lot, without feeling overwhelmed. I would highly recommend this trip.
Best regards to the staff at the Santa Cruz II and the Metropolitan Touring Ecuador. Our trip was one of our most memorable to the Galapagos Islands. The time on this beautiful ship could have not been better curated and organized. Thank you and VIVA ECUADOR ! !

Thank you to the captain and the crew for a most fantastic trip! Every day was such fun. The cruise was a wonderful learning opportunity and a chance to see so many animals. I was thrilled and only wish I could have stayed longer.
Our trip to the Galápagos Islands on the Santa Cruz ll was beyond any and all expectations. The staff was phenomenal! All the guides were kind, happy and especially knowledgeable! Our Frigates guide Roberto was of course the best however . I will highly recommend this line and that everyone take this trip of a lifetime. Everything you hear is true!
Thanks to the Captain and crew of the Santa Cruz II. They made the trip so enjoyable, and the guides provided excellent information and interpretation. The food and accommodations were top notch, and the excursions, including snorkeling and interpretive hikes, were fantastic. The daily briefings kept us all informed about what was coming up, and the cocktail socials were great opportunities to unwind and relax while enjoying the scenery. A most memorable trip of a lifetime!! I just wish I could have stayed longer 🙂
The best way to get a comprehensive tour of the Galapagos. Very good guides, ship staff and RIB drivers. Make sure you have extra time afterwards to relax in the Galapagos or when returning to Ecuador. The itinerary is not overcrowded, but there is an exceptional amount to see, photograph and film!
