Review of Queen of Galapagos
The 2017-built Queen of Galapagos cruise ship is a beautiful, top-luxury catamaran yacht designed for some of the best Galapagos small ship travel vacations. Until 2019, the Ecuador-flagged vessel (IMO 9447213) was chartered by G-Adventures (fka "Gap Adventures") - a small group travel cruise company headquartered in Toronto Canada.
G-Adventures offers environmentally and socially sensitive travel on small-sized boats with some of the best passenger-to-staff ratios. G Adventures Galapagos fleet also included the boats Estrella del Mar, Monserrat, Xavier 3, Yolita 2. The 16-passenger ship Queen of Galapagos is a motor catamaran yacht with outdoor areas, luxury cabins, roomy common areas, onboard naturalist guide.
In January 2019, G Adventures banned single-use plastics on cruise line's Galapagos ships, offering its customers 1 complimentary reusable water bottle per voyage. The decision was made after Galapagos Conservancy announced that since March 2019, non-returnable bottles are no longer allowed on Galapagos cruises. In May 2018, on all Galapagos ships were banned plastic straws and plastic bags.
