Seeing the Galápagos Islands on board the M/V Santa Cruz goes beyond the concept of traditional cruising, evolving into an expedition approach in order to authentically discover and explore the natural wonders of this region. The M/V Santa Cruz is built to luxurious standards and encourages an elegant yet relaxed atmosphere.

The 46-stateroom M/V Santa Cruz features a Jacuzzi and an observation platform for dolphin and whale watching on the top deck. Each ship's dining room, lounge, and bar are elegantly appointed, as is the well-stocked library/reading room. All staterooms are outside and feature air-conditioning, private bathrooms, hairdryers, and safety deposit boxes. The M/V Santa Cruz accommodates 88 passengers.

The M/V Santa Cruz has gained worldwide recognition for its excellent standards, including superb service, expert crew, the most knowledgeable multilingual naturalist/guides, and menus that feature the very best international cuisine and celebrated Ecuadorian dishes.
