Cruise itinerary program

MV Xavier III itinerary program is based on Galapagos Islands cruises sailing out of Baltra Island and Quito / flight to San Cristobal Island.

Cabins

The Xavier III ship has 9 cabins (7 double and 2 singles), all with private views, air-conditioned, wood-paneled, carpeted and spacious.

Shipboard dining options - Food and Drinks

Ship's comfortable Dinning Room offers fresh and tasty international and local cuisine.

Since 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 would be no longer allowed on Galapagos cruises. In May 2018, on all Galapagos ships were banned plastic straws and plastic bags.

Shipboard entertainment options - Fun and Sport

Featuring a large porch, comfortable lounge area with flat screen TV for briefings and relax, and a bar, the common spaces on Xavier III are as roomy as her staterooms. The social areas also include a Bar, Small Boutique and three Solariums. Wetsuits are available for rent. Beach towels and snorkelling equipment are included at no extra charge. Water toys and Jet skis are prohibited in the Galapagos. 

With 7 dedicated crew members and 1 naturalist guide familiar with local flora and fauna and certified by Galápagos National Park Service, there is always someone available to answer guests' questions.
