National Geographic Endeavour II: A luxurious 96-passenger expedition ship

Days: 10 | From: $7,190/per person

The National Geographic Endeavour II is an expansive ship with spacious decks and common areas. The ship accommodates 96 passengers in 54 outside cabins and 2 suites. Once used as an expedition vessel to explore the Arctic, the Endeavor has been refurbished as a gracious and comfortable option for Galapagos exploration. The ship offers a pool, sun deck, library, wellness center, and a bar and lounge that hosts a nightly cocktail hour and photo recap of the day’s adventures. The dining room features outstanding fresh local food, and is large enough to accommodate all guests in one seating – tables are arranged to help encourage mingling. Unlike most Galapagos cruises, the Endeavor’s program begins the day before you arrive to Galapagos, giving you a chance to explore Guayaquil and get to know your fellow passengers. With top quality naturalist guides, great food, and luxurious spaces, this is one of the most elegant and comfortable options for exploring the Galapagos, while at the same time being a true expedition vessel.
