Nostalgic and luxurious Galápagos cruise ship, with more than a hint of retro 1920s style yet all the amenities of the modern age.

Delight in the retro style and nostalgic nautical atmosphere of the first class MV Evolution, with its 1920s décor and funnels, combined with 21st century amenities and standards. The classic décor and comfortable furnishings are warm and welcoming, making generous use of rich colours, sumptuous fabrics and teak finishing.

Up to 32 passengers are accommodated in 13 spacious wood-panelled, carpeted cabins and three suites and looked after by a crew of 21, including two English-speaking naturalist guides and an expedition leader. Facilities include an al fresco dining area, outdoor lounge, a Jacuzzi, sun deck, bar, library/video room and a boutique. Snorkelling equipment, wetsuits (‘shorties’) and kayaks are available on board.

Impeccable food and service

“The food and service were impeccable and the guide, Juan Carlos, was a passionate advocate for the conservation of the Galápagos as well as being a very informative and instructive guide. Mayra was an extremely efficient and welcoming manager and all the crew were very pleasant and helpful.”
