A sleek new (2019) contemporary yacht welcomes couples, families and singles to enjoy a Galapágos experience in a sociable environment with just 16 guests max.
The sparkling new good value yacht Solaris, (maiden voyage March 2019), is not just a swish new addition to the list of vessels cruising the Galápagos Islands. With the accent on space and light, she offers her 16 guests a real 21st century contemporary experience. The décor is all cool white, cream, silver and tan, the furnishings in the cabins and public areas ultra-modern yet invitingly comfortable. Windows are large and offer expansive views of the ocean and islands.
What makes this yacht stand out is its cabin configuration: the large cabins on the main and upper decks, each with a queen bed and a sofa bed, can accommodate two or three passengers, and so are particularly attractive to small families. Meanwhile on the main deck there are three cabins with single beds specifically designed for single travellers, but still generously sized, so single guests will not find themselves staying in a poky cabin next to the engine. There is no single supplement charged for these cabins. You will be accompanied on your cruise by a friendly and professional crew including a naturalist guide.
