Grand Majestic is brand new for 2018 and is set to redefine luxury in the Galápagos cruise market. Designed and built in the USA in 2018, Grand Majestic is being hailed as the first MegaYacht in the Galápagos fleet. Constructed to the same exacting specifications as the best private luxury yachts in the world, Grand Majestic also has another trick up her sleeve - at 25kts, she's the fastest vessel in the Galápagos cruise fleet. That means you can spend more time experiencing what the Galápagos has to offer and less time traveling between visitor sites. All this while enjoying the highest standards of luxury and service.

  • Brand new Galápagos megayacht
  • Stunning cabins, including an opulent master suite
  • Luxury service and amenities
  • Excellent wildlife itineraries and experienced guides

The best of the best Accommodation on board Grand Majestic is nothing short of… majestic. With only 8 cabins in total, there are superb levels of space, light and luxury. Every cabin features panoramic windows for unparalleled views of the islands. Each has been luxuriously decorated with designer fabrics and the highest quality fittings.

Stunning bathrooms, climate control, luxury linens and the finest toiletries are just a few of the amenities enjoyed by all cabins. The grand master suite boasts an enormous 400 square feet of space, and is the perfect choice for that very special "trip of a lifetime".

Communal spaces onboard are no less spectacular. Our favorite is the luxurious al fresco dining area up on the sundeck, offering absolutely stunning views as you enjoy the finest Ecuadorian and international cuisine and wines.

The main deck houses the indoor dining area, extensively stocked bar, and a wonderfully comfortable saloon area featuring a stunning communal leather sofa. This is the perfect place to enjoy a relaxing drink before dinner after your day's adventures, or to listen to your naturalist guide brief you about the wonders in store for you on your next excursion.

Another standout feature is the large jacuzzi hot tub on the sundeck. It's a remarkable place to enjoy the equatorial night sky as the stars come out on a warm evening.

From the champagne reception on your arrival to the complimentary fruit basket in your cabin, via exceptional service and memorable excursions, Grand Majestic is the current pinnacle of the Galápagos luxury cruise fleet.

If you would like to charter Grand Majestic for your own private use, we are able to facilitate this. Please speak to one of our Galápagos experts, and we can arrange this VIP service on your behalf.

Amazing wildlife encounters Grand Majestic is operated by Galápagos veterans, and they have put all their skills and experience to use in designing superb itineraries that allow you to see almost everything the Galápagos has to offer.

Her bi-lingual naturalist guides are the among the best in the Galápagos, and they will enhance your visit with their in-depth knowledge of the islands' flora and fauna, as well as their expertise in locating the iconic species that can't be found anywhere else.

Our comments With her speed, Grand Majestic allows you to enjoy more "contact time" with the Galápagos than any other vessel in the fleet. The fact that this speed is accompanied by standards of luxury never before seen in a boat of this type means that a Galápagos cruise on the Grand Majestic is an experience you will always remember.

Sustainability on board the Grand Majestic

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 Grand Majestic

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.
