  • Ultra-modern catamaran with sumptuous modern interiors;
  • Private balconies and amazing panoramic windows;
  • Upper sun deck, jacuzzi with unlimited panoramic views;
  • High end luxury in a friendly and relaxing environment.

The Alia is the newest catamaran to arrive in the Galápagos. This beautiful, modern vessel has been finished to the highest standards to provide you with a true luxury cruise experience. With only 16 passengers at any time, the Alia has the space to provide privacy, wonderfully comfortable communal living and panoramic vistas from its large windows.

Staterooms with a view Alia boasts 9 sumptuous staterooms, 8 of which enjoy private balconies. Fully flexible, all beds can be easily converted to doubles or twins to suit your preference. Staterooms come fully air conditioned, with decadent en suite bathrooms, luxury linens and accessories such as hair dryers and speaker systems. If space is important to you, then we recommend choosing one of the lower-deck staterooms which are slightly larger than those on the upper deck.

A standout benefit of the Alia’s youth and modern construction techniques are the wonderful panoramic windows adorning the outer walls of every cabin. Modern glass technology allows the Alias rooms to be flooded with light, and will allow you to wake up to the most breathtaking ocean and island views before moving out onto your private balcony to take in the sounds of the Galápagos morning.

Socialize in luxury The lounge, dining area, library and outside decks all match the standard of decor and execution of craftsmanship you will experience in your stateroom with beautiful wood finishes and delightful furnishing throughout. Each deck is equipped with a well-stocked bar. The lounge area is decorated in a modern yet sumptuous style and you will feel immediately at home. Dining on board is always a special event, but the relaxed Alia atmosphere makes eating with your fellow travellers a convivial and rewarding experience.

Outdoor spaces are expansive and comfortable, offering al fresco dining or relaxing under shade. Sun worshipers and star gazers will want to ascend to the upper sundeck where the panoramic jacuzzi provides a magnificent place to see the islands unfold before you.

Quality service, quality cuisine Captain Jaime has 9 years experience on tourist vessels in Galápagos, and his 8 crew with certified bilingual guide will ensure you are extremely well looked after whilst discovering the hidden treasures of these wonderful islands. Hotel Manager Lissette is known for her eye for detail and she can cater for your every need. Alia’s chef, Julian, prepares amazing fresh meals every day, including barbecues on the glorious sun deck, wonderful ceviche and parrillada. All the staff work to make your trip unforgettable.

Our comment Alia is virtually brand new, a really stunning catamaran. Benefiting from the extra deck width and stability of two-hull designs, her lounge and dining areas are stunning and take full advantage of the extra space available. Chef Julian has some wonderful tricks up his sleeve - make sure you try his Shrimp in Orange Sauce - we can’t get enough of it. Captain Jaime has 9 years experience skippering in Galápagos, and hotel manager Lisette is a stickler for detail. Our top tip is to take a close look at the lower deck cabins, as they are bigger. If you love modern decor and you want modern facilities, you can’t do better than Alia.

Sustainability on board the Alia

At Galapatours we love and respect the pristine ecosystems and fascinating wildlife of the Galápagos Islands, and we insist that our cruise partners do too. To protect the archipelago all our cruise vessels must have sophisticated water filtration systems, modern efficient engines, and strict maintenance schedules to minimize pollution.

The Galápagos National Park authority also defines exact cruising routes that dictate which ships can visit highlights at specific times, as well as limiting passenger numbers. These measures ensure that animals and habitats are not disturbed by too many visitors.

But at Galapatours we like to go even further. We voluntarily offset all the CO2 emissions of every cruise we sell - at no cost to you. And you can also play your part by traveling responsibly and following our Eco Guidelines during your stay.

Food & Drinks on board the Alia

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.
