For many people, owning a private luxury yacht is the ultimate in indulgence. Thanks to the Motor Yacht Passion, you can now experience this for yourself as you discover the wonders of Galápagos. Built originally as a private family floating palace, Passion entered the Galápagos cruise fleet in 2015. Intended to be the standout luxury experience in the islands, her name perfectly describes what the owners and crew have for your comfort and for the archipelago – passion.

Other vessels of this size operating Galápagos tourist cruises will usually be fitted out to carry 40 guests in elegant comfort. Passion carries a maximum of only 14 guests in exclusive opulence and charm. You have the choice of stunning accommodation between five luxurious staterooms, and two simply remarkable suites. The staterooms feature beautiful, modern design, with luxury fabrics and linens. Each boast a gorgeous private bathroom filled with designer toiletries and beautiful fixtures and fittings and, uniquely, a bathtub. Every stateroom has USB points, allowing you to charge all your devices directly. They also enjoy beautiful wood paneling, individual climate control, generous windows and ample storage and closet space.

For the ultimate experience, particularly if you are embarking on a “trip-of-a-lifetime” Galápagos cruise adventure, why not see if a suite is available? There are two on board – the Master Suite and the VIP Suite. Both offer unprecedented levels of luxury for a Galápagos cruise, including two private bathrooms in each suite laid out in Italian marble with bathtub, as well as a beautiful private lounge area. There is no better way to travel around the islands.

Away from your stateroom or suite, the Passion is no less sumptuous. The panoramic Sky Lounge and Bar is an amazing place to relax with a drink and swap stories about your Galápagos adventure. Complimentary water, tea, coffee, and fruit juice is always available. The main sundeck offers a delightful, comfortable area to soak up the equatorial sun and embrace the sights and sounds of the Galápagos. There is a smaller, more intimate sundeck with a hot tub – perfect for quiet relaxation.

When it comes to food, a Passion cruise offers you a wonderful fine dining experience, whether sitting down at the beautiful table for dinner in the sumptuous dining room, or enjoying a relaxed lunch in the charming alfresco dining area. The culinary team will prepare you a stunning array of Ecuadorian and international dishes, made with the freshest ingredients, and designed to delight all of your senses. Her head chef tells us that the “farewell grill” is his favorite meal. “More than the food, this evening is always a memorable experience, as we always chat with the guests as well as exchanging grilling tips and a secret recipe or two!” With Passion, you can enjoy a Galápagos cruise that amazes your taste buds, as well as all your other senses!

The Passion naturalist cruise itineraries were designed by Fiddi Angermeyer, one of the pioneers of Galápagos cruising. He has extensive experience and intimate knowledge of the archipelago and its currents and winds— knowledge he has combined to give you the ultimate voyage of discovery. He tells us: “When I was a boy in the early 60s my parents and their brothers, original Galápagos colonizers, offered adventurous trips through the archipelago on their fishing boats and that is how the cruise industry in the islands was born. For over 30 years we have personally rebuilt all our vessels, converting them into the ideal way to the archipelago, with the comforts and safety of today, but with the charm of past centuries.”

With Passion, you have a choice of two varied itineraries, one to the east and the other to the west. The western itinerary goes around Fernandina and the Isabella, with their many volcanoes and crystal clear waters teeming with life. The eastern itinerary sails through the easterly islands, with their impressive landscapes and bird and animal species that can’t be found anywhere else. As well as dry and wet landings, you will also enjoy snorkeling and swimming, and Passion carries kayaks for guests to use to add another dimension to your Galápagos adventure.

This is the pinnacle in luxury Galápagos cruising. We can’t think of any better way to celebrate a life milestone like a wedding, a retirement, or other key moment than to book the Master Suite on the yacht Passion and visit the stunning Galápagos. Whether you book a suite or one of the gorgeous staterooms, you will not find a more luxurious and attentive experience. The Angermeyer touch is everywhere here, from the thoughtfully designed itineraries to the smallest details in the service and presentation on board. A Galápagos cruise on Passion will give you memories for a lifetime.

Durabilité : Passion

Chez Galapatours, nous aimons et respectons les écosystèmes vierges et la faune fascinante des îles Galápagos. Pour protéger l'archipel, tous les navires naviguant aux Galápagos doivent être équipés de systèmes sophistiqués de filtration de l'eau, de moteurs modernes et efficaces et de programmes d'entretien stricts afin de minimiser la pollution. En outre, l'autorité du parc national des Galápagos définit des itinéraires de croisière précis qui dictent quels navires peuvent visiter quels points forts, à quel jour et à quelle heure, et limite le nombre de passagers. Ces mesures garantissent que les animaux et les habitats ne sont pas perturbés par un trop grand nombre de visiteurs.

Mais chez Galapatours, nous aimons aller encore plus loin : Nous compensons volontairement toutes les émissions de CO2 de chaque croisière que nous vendons - sans frais pour vous. Vous pouvez également jouer votre rôle en voyageant de manière responsable et en suivant nos directives écologiques pendant votre séjour.

Nourriture & Boissons : Passion

The food on our Galapágos Cruises is among the very best you will find in South America. Most of the on-board chefs are internationally trained and have prior experience working in the best hotels and restaurants in Ecuador and indeed around the world.

You can expect a first-class selection of food, including a good variety of fresh fruits and vegetables, locally sourced poultry and fish/seafood, rice and pasta dishes. Most boats will always include some typical Ecuadorian dishes on the menu during your cruise. If you have specific dietary requirements then these can usually be accommodated by the chef providing you have given advance notice. Please make sure you tell us about any allergies or dietary requirements you have at the time you book with us. If you leave it until you arrive at the dockside, then it may well be impossible to accommodate your needs.

Most boats serve a range of options at meal times in a relaxed buffet-style. At the first class and luxury end of the market, some boats have more formal dining where you will be served at your seat. However the atmosphere is always relaxed on board our cruises, and never stuffy or formal.

Best cruise ever We just returned from a week in the Galapagos onboard the Passion. It was a wonderful experience. The crew was a joy. And like true professionals, they took care of us in style every minute of every day. There was only one other couple onboard, so the 4 of us had all (I think) 13 crew members to ourselves. And like good stage performers, they performed as if to a full house. Our Guide Fernando was a PRO. He took us on each island and lovingly shared his animals, plants and geology with us. He was a dive master for years (I’m an avid diver although we could only snorkel on this trip) so he pointed out the penguins, sea lions and fish with great glee and passion. He also headed a conservation group so he was very protective of the animals as he should be. It’s a very aggressive schedule. Each morning we toured an island. Then we came back and had breakfast. Next often a snorkeling trip. Then lunch and then another island and maybe another snorkeling trip. We never had a spare minute. You won’t be bored, but you might be tired. The trails on the island are often quite challenging. But the crew was great about helping us. I thanked them for saving my life, as in one location, two crew members came ashore to support us as we crossed the rocks at the landing site while two others helped us on and off the Panga (Zodiac) and another piloted the Panga so it was against the rocks as each of us entered and exited. I share this so you’ll know that you will be helped. Not sure how a ship with a large group handles it all. But at all times, on and off the Yacht, wet or dry landings, the crew was 100% marvelous. The suites were great. Frankly better than on most full size cruise ships we’ve been on. We had a king bed, 2 bathrooms and a nice tub and separate shower. All very nice when we were leaving early in the mornings... We had the VIP Suite. There was also a bigger suite and 4 normal cabins, each with a nice bathroom and tub/shower. The common areas were large and the entire ship was spotless. I saw some reviews that noted that the cabins were made up often, but that they never saw anyone do it. I guess they do it while we’re off the ship. Our room was always clean and they even folded the clothes that I left on the bed. We ate breakfast and lunch on deck under a canopy on deck. And dinner was in a very nice dining room on a spectacular alabaster table. Even the centerpieces were new every day. The food was really great. Perfectly cooked and never repeated, except for breakfast where I ordered the same type of eggs each morning. One night our guide Fernando made dinner and it was fabulous. Very much like a whole catfish that we get at a restaurant we like in Los Angeles. I wish I could remember all the crew names, because they were all cheerful and wonderfully helpful especially getting on and off the boat several times a day. but I do remember Roberto who handled serving us meals. He and the rest of the crew were second to none, the best we’ve had. And as an example, I drink a lot of diet coke and soda water. There was always a bottle nearby. All I had to do was look up. It’s not an inexpensive trip. But I’d be hard pressed to think of any way that the service or accommodations could be improved. Book the Passion. You’ll be glad you did. Source: goo.gl/Sgxqwd

Comfort and luxury We recently returned from an amazing cruise on the M/Y Passion. The ship, the crew, the service, the food and the islands were all wonderful. We can’t say enough good things. We were a multi-generational family group, twelve in total, including two grandparents, four parents and six children (ages 4 – 13). The crew effortlessly handled each and every one of our needs, from serving a “children’s meal” in the evening to making sure that there were snorkels and wetsuits for all. Our staterooms were kept impeccably clean and the entire ship was immaculate. The excellent service from the crew allowed us to relax and enjoy being together as a family, more than on any vacation that we have experienced. The ship is extremely comfortable and large enough that there is plenty of room for everyone, including twelve crew members. There is a lovely outdoor dining area on the upper deck where we enjoyed numerous meals and spent countless hours enjoying one another’s company. The living room area inside the ship has a large television and comfortable seating for all. And the moment we sat down to watch a movie our cruise director, Roberto, appeared with popcorn for everyone, as if anticipating our needs. The staterooms are all expertly appointed and large enough for adults and children alike, each with an en-suite bathroom. The food was fantastic, the best we experienced in Ecuador. Our chef, Anna, created interesting and delicious meals and would cater her menu to the tastes and needs of our group. Every meal was thoughtfully prepared and expertly served. The landscape and wildlife of the Galapagos was also incredible. Young and old alike were amazed at the creatures we saw on land and that we swam with in the water. We were all thrilled the first time a penguin swam with us while snorkeling and when the sea lions would play it was even better. The children are still talking about the experiences they had and the memories from the trip will last a lifetime. Our exploration was as impactful as it was due to our guide, Sandie, who was wonderful. She was extremely knowledgeable about all of the flora and fauna in the islands, including the ability to speak sea lion. She expertly introduced us to all of the wonders of the Galapagos and skillfully balanced the needs of the different age groups. She willingly snorkeled with some of the younger children while their parents explored deeper waters. She took time to explain the history of the islands and the animals so that everyone could understand. She diligently sat on the deck of the ship, scanning the seas for whales, dolphins and other wildlife. The level of guide provided by the ship assured us that this was a first class operation in every imaginable way. We were truly privileged to have spent time on the M/Y Passion. It is an outstanding ship with an energetic and creative crew. The owners have made every effort to ensure that the passengers have a most enjoyable stay on board. Our entire party would all highly recommend the M/Y Passion. Source: goo.gl/EzFbRj

Excellent choice I just want to emphasize on the Passion crew's professionalism and attention to detail. 1) The crew really places their customer needs as a top priority. They know that we are traveling to the Galapagos to see wild animals, and would even stop the cruise's navigation to do just that! We were lucky enough to see a shark and sea lion feeding frenzy during our navigation, and the captain actually stopped the boat for about an hour to let us observe the phenomenon. 2) Not only will you receive fresh towels coming back from each excursion, but depends on the activity! Cold when snorkeling, here's a warm hot hand tower to warm you up! Sweaty after an excursion? Have a nice ice cool tower to wipe your face. And snacks that the guest would receive after each excursion aren't your typical nuts and crackers, but rather hot meals prepared fresh from the kitchen. It's the attention to detail that made the Passion so wonderful. 3) There was another incident where we navigated past a lobster fishing boat. And without the guest requesting, the crew arranged a deal with the lobster fisherman to spontaneously change our dinner menu to surf and turf. Just another one of the numerous examples of placing guest's priority as their own. If price is not an issue, the Passion would exceed your expectations for your once in a life time Galapagos trip.
