Passion Galapagos Cruise
The Passion Galapagos Cruise was built as a private luxury yacht. Later re-imagined. Nevertheless, it still maintains many of its original elegant features such as its rose-colored marble bathrooms and teak wood decks that make this vessel one of a kind.
The M/Y Passion, originally named Bellisima (“beautiful” in Italian), offers a sense of relaxed refinement and exclusivity. The yacht is ideal for families and private charters. The M/Y Passion is 159 feet (48.5 meters) in length and is spread over four decks. The yacht boasts an exceptional amount of space for only 14 passengers.
Passion boasts ample interior and exterior social areas. Additionally, you will find a panoramic sky lounge with a bar and sliding glass doors. A separate dining room and wonderfully spacious decks with a secluded sun deck equipped with lounge chairs and Jacuzzi. All beautifully set off by the more than 200 m2 of fine teak decking.
With a service ratio of one crew member per guest, she ensures a service second to none, whilst the first-class galley produces gourmet cuisine of international standards. When chartered, our chef will tailor each meal based on our passengers’ requests. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner can be served al fresco in our exterior dining area if the weather permits, allowing guests to enjoy the amazing views of the Galapagos Islands where sunsets and moonrises are stunning.
Truly exceptional service and facilities await aboard the Passion. Aboard you will have four itineraries to choose from; 4,5, and two 8-day itineraries.
Both 8-day itineraries are great. Nevertheless, for a week-long journey, I would suggest the Western Itinerary which visits the sought after islands of Isabela and Fernandina in style. Also stopping at Floreana Island one of my favorite islands in the Galapagos, where you will have a chance to snorkel at the very best snorkeling site – The Devil’s Crown!
