Just wanted to let you know what a marvelous time we had on our 8-day cruise on the Natural Paradise! The ship was perfectly designed and well laid-out. The crew were fantastic - we were particularly impressed by how quickly they learned all our names and preferences for food/drinks. In addition, all the crew helped out w/ all tasks as needed, especially to ensure we got on and off the panga's safely (even the captain helped!). The food was another highlight - every commented on how good and varied it was; also a different dessert for lunch and dinner for 7 days was particularly impressive! We also appreciated the snacks after each outing, matched to whether we were cold from swimming or hot from hiking. We also loved our cabin and the balcony where we spent many evenings watching the beautiful scenery go by.
James. the naturalist was absolutely outstanding. He managed the group very well, was an excellent resource and teacher, and always put our safety first. I knew that the naturalist would have a big impact on our trip and I don't think we could have found a better professional to guide us for our Galapagos adventure.

We have just returned from our trip. It was wonderful.
We would like to thank you and the Royal Galapagos company for the great experience we had during our adventure.
The trip was very well organized, starting from picking us up a the Guayaquil airport and ending with dropping us at the Quito hotel.
The cruise was beyond all our expectations - the gorgeous yacht, amazing cabin, attentive staff, professional crew, our tour guide Roberto, meals and excursions, and overall service.
We were very pleased with our choice, and will definitely recommend you as a trip advisor and the Royal Galapagos to our friends.

I’m on my way home to Minnesota after a wonderful time in Galapagos!
It was a pleasure to finally meet you, and to learn about Royal Galapagos.
The cruise on Natural Paradise was outstanding! The ship is beautiful, and I really liked my cabin (thank you!)
The shore landings were beyond what I could have imagined. Beautiful, and the experiences were wonderful.
The guide and crew were wonderful, as well. Very professional, taking care of everything, very attentive, and polite.
The Food! I didn’t expect so much fresh salads, and fruit, and all the meals were delicious.
Thank you again for the opportunity to take Natural Paradise! My clients will be very happy with their cruise next year. I also hope we can book other clients with you.
We look forward to working further with Royal Galapagos.
