Cruising on the National Geographic Islander
There’s no denying that the Galapagos Islands is one of the most gorgeous, exciting paradisal islands on the planet today. An expedition in this archipelago often culminates to an unrivaled experience, to say the least. The experience only gets better courtesy of the 48-guest Geographic Islander luxury cruise ship.
- Upclose and Personal – Exploring the Galapagos Islands aboard the luxury National Geographic Islander accords you with the rare opportunity to experience the magical beauty of these paradisal islands on a personal, up-close scale. Having being built originally for the Caribbean, the twin-hulled, 48-guest Islander was initially used in the Scottish Highlands before sailing in the Galapagos for the past two or three years. And since 2004 (year of manufacture), the National Geographic Islander has been cruising the dangerous and rough waters around numerous archipelagos around the globe.
- A Modern Luxury Ship – Offering an intimate, friendly environment, the nimble slick cruiser is perfectly suited for those rare, once-in-a-lifetime luxury voyages. The community on-board plus the staff are friendly, warm and always welcoming. This convivial atmosphere is further complemented with the trim, yacht-scaled, mahogany brass fittings that give it an aura of grace and exquisite luxury. And being designed for exploration, the Islander can easily and navigate around boulders and rocks where bigger vessels wouldn’t dare venture.
- Accommodation Inside the Ship – As far as its accommodating capacity goes, the Islander can fit as many as 48 guests being housed in all the 24 cabins. Among this 24 cabins, 2 of them are luxury suites and at 165 feet long, the boat is perfectly sized to offer a broad range of in-house entertainment to everyone aboard. Combine these state-of-the-art furnishing with a lively jovial staff, and you have a reason to see the Galapagos at least once every year especially during summer.
- Impeccable Service – Like most other cruise ships, the in-house accommodation service in the Islander is nothing short of impeccable. The full range of shipboard service offered here vary from professional laundry to additional bonus treats such as wireless internet connectivity. And as you would expect in your own personal yacht, everything here is as excellent as you would imagine.
- Expedition – The Islander might have a sleek hull, but it’s a ship built for adventure and resilience when out in the sea. This makes it the perfect outfit for exploring the wildness of the Galapagos. Speaking of which, it is the norm for voyagers to immerse themselves in the pleasures of snorkeling, underwater exploration and a wide variety of watersports when out in the sea.
