The favorit of the Galapagos Cruise Boats offers a variety of accommodations, including seven 269-square-foot Galapagos Suites with two twin beds that can be converted to a king, and one Sea Star Suite, which is 377 square feet. Each cabin has panoramic windows, private marble bathroom, air conditioning, a mini-bar, flat-screen TV with DVD player, and a sofa bed that can accommodate a child or teenager. Connected suites are available for families.
Everyone onboard has one goal in mind: seeing the wild flora and fauna of the Galapagos Islands. To that end, daily included excursions -- led by knowledgeable guides and naturalists -- get travelers close to the action via Zodiac tours of the coast, snorkeling or kayaking adventures in Galapagos National Park or hikes ashore. Sea Star Journey offers complimentary snorkel gear, and it stocks twin sea kayaks for each cabin so all passengers can take part in outings at the same time. Two Zodiacs are available for excursions and landings. (You can rent wet suits.)
When onboard the ship, travelers stick to the sun deck -- which features two hot tubs along with daybeds and loungers -- so they can keep an eye on the water for marine life while also relaxing in the sun or shade. Each Latin Trails cruise includes a few fun extras such as a ceviche cooking class, an on-deck barbecue -- featuring picanha (sirloin cap), beef sausage, boneless chicken with oregano and lemon, tequila-marinated prawns and more -- and alfresco dining experiences. The ship also has an open bridge policy, where cruisers can chat with the captain and learn what it takes to navigate the many islands of the archipelago.
Sea Star Journey also features an indoor lounge with a self-serve coffee and tea station; this is also the place for evening lectures. There is an indoor dining room, a small library with a kids' corner, and an alfresco dining area on the stern. Latin Trails' cruise fares include unlimited water, tea and coffee. Wine, cocktails and soft drinks are available for an extra charge. Breakfast and lunch are buffets (with an omelet station appearing in the morning) and dinners are served family-style with an entree choice of chicken, meat or seafood. In addition to Western dishes, expect some Ecuadorian specialties such as shrimp ceviche, coconut fish with rice, and seco de chivo (lamb stew). A vegetarian menu is also offered. If you have special dietary requirements, alert the cruise line at least 15 days before departure and they will accommodate you.
