Reviews from this trip

5 stars
  • And the accommodations on Sea Star Journey were outstanding. As was the cruise and the islands themselves.
    Terry & Andy Ratoff
  • The Sea Star Voyage in Galapagos was perfect. We had been to the Galapagos 10 years ago on a larger cruise ship and going on a small ship was even better.
