Galapagos Islands: Athala II

Athala II

Save up to £600 per person >>
Special Offer:

Following extensive refurbishment, the MC Athala II returned to the Equatorial waters for which she was specifically designed, complete with stylish, modern interiors and a luxuriant and spacious sundeck. With a maximum of just 16 passengers, accommodated in eight double state rooms on two decks, the first class vessel offers a private and personalized Galápagos cruise experience.

Décor is refreshingly contemporary, with wood panelled floors, simple white walls and occasional artwork or splash of bright colour. 

With her stable design for smooth sea travel, the catamaran has several spacious and comfortable relaxation areas on board, including a dining room, bar and separate lounge, al fresco dining areas and an outdoor Jacuzzi surrounded by sun loungers.

What our experts say

I thought that the Athala II had been nicely refurbished.  I particularly liked the outdoor dining area, which offers barbecue options. Cabins on the main deck had a private balcony with a minibar: at first i thought this might be an unnecessary luxury but later I appreciated the privacy to sit with a book and a drink and enjoy the view.
