Among the best boats in the Galapagos, the MV Eclipse is a majestic 210 foot expedition vessel that combines classic elegance and comfort with first class service and an intimate small ship atmosphere.
Tastefully decorated throughout, the Eclipse abounds with space from the charming lounge and library to the generous observation deck.
There are 24 spacious and fully air-conditioned staterooms spread over 2 decks to cater to a maximum of 48 passengers. Beautifully appointed, the standard staterooms are on the main deck and overlook the sparkling water through portholes. They include 2 single cabins, perfect for individual travellers looking to avoid hefty surcharges. Superior staterooms boast larger picture windows and sit alongside the 210 square foot deluxe staterooms on the boat deck.
Guests are treated to both inside and al fresco dining. The food is delicious, an excellent mix of international and regional flavours that makes good use of the exquisite seafood.
The Eclipse offers 3, 4, 5 and 7 night cruises to explore the breathtaking flora and fauna of the Galapagos. Daily excursions are led by the 4 on-board naturalist guides and take passengers to visit the outer islands. There are regular opportunities to swim and snorkel, all wetsuits and gear provided free of charge. In addition, the Eclipse carries 4 double kayaks. On board, passengers can enjoy daily lectures, stargaze from the observation deck or simply sink into the jacuzzi and watch the islands float by.
