Currently under construction, the Galapagos Elite is scheduled to take to the sea in June 2019.
The design of the Elite allows for more space per guest on board, including integrated social areas that blend indoor and outdoor designs and experiences. All Suites and Premium Golden Suites on board the Galapagos Elite will be spacious, comfortable and well-appointed: the perfect place to relax and recharge after a day spent exploring the islands.
Our professional cuisine specialists prepare three delicious, nutritious meals per day: breakfast and mainly lunch will be served buffet-style, with a more elegant sit-down dinner served in the al fresco dining area on the partially covered sky deck. Elite’s interior passengers lounge feature a 180 degree panoramic view salon on the main deck.
Guests of all ages, will enjoy the ample, semi-covered sky deck, the al fresco dining area and the cozy bar-salon. Special dietary needs are never a problem and kids’ meals are available, including kosher food (barters). Golden Galapagos Cruises has plenty experience with cruising the islands, the ships and visitors’ needs. The professionals at Golden Galapagos are well-known in the industry for their perfectionism when it comes to planning and operating luxury cruises.
Golden Galapagos makes a point of always hiring the best captains, guides, chefs and crews for the vessels they operate; they believe that the people, not the ship itself, is what will make the trip memorable for their guests. The Elite is scheduled for an enviable itinerary with visits to the best visitor sites the Galapagos islands and seas have to offer.
Within the archipelago we have long and short itineraries covering Western, Central and Eastern islands. Needless to say, the Galapagos Elite will feature state-of-the-art navigation computers and safety equipment: safety and reliability are essential parts of any Galapagos luxury experience.
Everyone knows that the main attractions of the Galapagos Islands are the animals and the islands themselves. The Elite is scheduled for an enviable itinerary with visits to the best visitor sites the Galapagos islands and seas have to offer.
To mention only a few, guests will hike the stark, volcanic fields of Fernandina Island, marvel at the Albatross nesting sites of Española, snorkel with sea lions around the so-called “Devil’s Crown” and explore the world-famous “Bird Island” of Genovesa. Along the way, visitors can expect to see all of the iconic animals associated with the islands, including giant tortoises, land and marine iguanas, blue-footed boobies, frigate birds, and much, much more.
Each suite will have grand windows for panoramic ocean views, private outdoor balcony, as well as a natural light frosted glass wall restroom in each suite. All beds are convertible in two twin beds or one king size bed.
Meals are always made from fresh ingredients, locally provided from farms on the islands whenever possible. Special dietary needs are never a problem for our chefs, and kids’ meals are available. Your onboard chef prepares three delicious, nutritious meals per day: breakfast and frequently lunch will be served buffet-style, with a more elegant sit-down dinner served in the al fresco dining area on the sky deck, weather permitting.
We are particularly proud of the panoramic windows featured in each suite: unlike the heavy, round porthole windows of the older yachts, each suite on the Elite has grand windows offering panoramic views. Your window to the world of Galapagos is a floor to ceiling wall of tempered glass, with a glass sliding door to get to your balcony. Each morning and afternoon will bring a different stunning Galapagos seascape view from your room.
Watch the Galapagos Islands float by from the Sky Deck’s hot tub, bar and ample social areas for lounging, tanning or socializing.
