Millennium Galápagos Cruise
A fantastic adventure to the world's last paradise
A Galápagos Cruise on board the Millennium
- Larger boat in the class, lots of space
- Full refurbishment in April 2017
- All cabins with panoramic windows and balconies
- Extensive choice of itineraries
Fully refurbished in April 2017, Millennium is an elegant, comfortable and spacious catamaran that offers wonderful naturalist cruises around the islands in modern surroundings that give you the space to breathe. Her size and twin-hull design make her very stable, giving you a comfortable cruising experience, even in open water swells.
Despite her size, Millennium only hosts a maximum of 16 guests. With ample cabins that boast modern, elegant decor and enjoy air conditioning and private bathrooms, you'll always awake refreshed and be greeted by the stunning view from your panoramic windows. As a further luxury touch, each double cabin features a private balcony.
Communal spaces on board are also open, bright and beautifully decorated and furnished. Accommodation features a dining room, bar, lounge and exterior sundeck with shade. For additional comfort, all interior spaces including cabins are fully air-conditioned. Her combination of larger size and small number of guests gives Millennium a particularly special feel in her class.
Food on board is a wonderful mix of Ecuadorian specialties and International cuisine, served as a buffet, and taken in the elegant indoor or outdoor dining areas. The lounge and dining room feature wonderful picture windows that bring the Galápagos inside, and superbly comfortable sofas make this a great place to relax in the evening, or to listen to your experienced naturalist guide bring the habitat and wildlife of the archipelago to life.
As well as a superb choice of itineraries offering many excursions, you may also choose to hire kayaks and wetsuits to enhance your trip. Every guest can make use of complimentary snorkel and mask and get even closer to the marine wonders of the islands.

Food & Drinks on board the Millennium
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.
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.
