Reviews from this trip

  • Highlights were definitely the Passion cruise at the Galapagos...
    Peggy Davis
  • The guide we had not the Passion was AMAZING wealth of knowledge !!!!!!!! You could see he really enjoyed his job and interacting with us.
    Heather Jans
  • Accommodations on board the Passion were first-class. The rooms were larger than we had thought, but you don't spend much time there except to sleep! The rest of the ship was much nicer than we expected.
