Food & Drinks

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.

Ocean Spray Galapagos Cruise


Perfect Trip I just wanted to write and thank you for all your help in setting up our trip to Ecuador which was absolutely perfect. It was flawless! Our cruise....all I can say is WOW! The crew was wonderful, the food delightful, our fellow passengers were a delight and our guide, Vanessa, was absolutely fantastic. She couldn't have been more enthusiastic and knowledgable. Her love for her home islands was evident. It was also fun because she liked to be spontaneous which we all loved as we raced off in the pangas to chase orcas or to catch up with dolphins to swim with them. Martha and Greg


Ocean Spray Galapagos Cruise


Best experience ever This review is to thank you for helping me with the trip of a lifetime! My trip was like having a front row seat on the best nature show on earth. Ocean Spray was a really comfortable ship and everything went as expected. The crew under Alex worked tirelessly to make sure we were always comfortable and often took special care of me being a lady traveling solo.The guide, Morris Garcia, made the trip fun, exciting and educational. His in depth knowledge is beyond impressive and passion for nature and animals contagious. I liked Galapagos so much that I may be going back! Thank you again, Claudia

Ocean Spray Galapagos Cruise


once in a lifetime experience Just came back from 8 day cruise on Ocean Spray. Had a fantastic time and this is truly a once in a lifetime experience. Our guide, Roberto, was absolutely the, personable, extremely helpful. Food was quite good (not the best, if you are into "fine dining")... Fresh, not so great, though. OK... I will now say a few negatives that are not mentioned in other posts. Perhaps it is because I'm not a "boat person", but there were a few things that surprised me since I stupidly expected that I was on a "luxury cruise". The main thing is that you can't throw toilet paper in the toilet and there is a "crappy" (no pun intended) waste basket for this purpose, which doesn't open easily.... And some days it was only emptied once (although, on most days twice... and maybe 3 times on a few days). Totally gross, but I guess adventure travelers are used to this kind of thing... But I might have opted for a larger boat, had I known this in advance. The Ocean Spray is only 2 years old, but needs refurbishing. The cabins have dirty, worn carpet and peeling paint in the barpthrooms. Also, the cleanliness is questionable. We had a nice, comfortable king size bed, but the linens were rough and there was no blanket, just a dingy bedspread, which I am sure is not washed between guests. Not my idea of "luxury" travel, but then, again, this was the kind of travel I've never done before, so I guess my expectations were unrealistic. I just wanted to post this in case there are others, like me, who are not small boat people. and are only used to bigger cruise ships. Thus is a totally different experience! Everything I read about this cruise seemed to indicate no rough seas in January, but we rocked and rolled (especially the first night), my husband got seasick and I was up all night due to creaking sounds. After that, we adjusted and really enjoyed ourselves. BUT don't expect a relaxing, lying on the beach type of vacation. On most days, we had 2 hikes (some 3 hours long on lava rocks which are not easy to navigate) and we usually snorkeled for about an hour or so between the 2 hikes. There is one guide for 16 people, and although he was absolutely GREAT, I believe that the larger boats have a smaller ratio of people to guides... and more options as to different activities. I personally would have opted for more swimming and snorkeling and less walking on rocks. However, we did see everything and perhaps it would have been a different, less satisfying, experience on a larger boat (not sure why, though). Feedback from:
