Home | Ships | MS Santa Cruz II

This sleek, spacious ship has a layout that allows guests to enjoy their sailing in all aspects. Enjoy delicious food in the nice restaurant, learn with fellow travellers in the Science Centre or maybe mingle out on the many decks? While exploring the Galápagos, they´ll have the ability to actively engage in activities and encounters. After a day in Darwin´s footsteps, they will enjoy coming home to a casual atmosphere with the best service there is.

Onboard the Santa Cruz II, there is a high value for sustainability, conservation, and preservation. The design and technology of the ship is orchestrated to neutralize carbon emissions. The unique engine technology allows the ship to operate more sustainably. Recycling all waste and efficient energy consumption are pillars to the onboard journey.

Facing the front of the ship, the Expedition Lounge – complete with a refreshment station and library – is a fantastic place to admire the beauty of the Galápagos’ Islands from inside. The Science Corner includes a glass cabinet, a microscope and a whale vertebrae clone, a perfect learning zone about our science activities.

On the lowest level is the magnificent and large Beagle Restaurant – a space to pamper your senses and delight your palate with all of the exquisite culinary offerings.

The Santa Cruz II has a team of trained staff members that utilize locally-sourced organic food to prepare every dish. This ship provides a Le Cordon Bleu (a trained Gastronomy Director) and a wide variety of culinary experiences that encompass all diets and preferences. Each and every meal served onboard is exquisite.

This large and well-lit area is not only the main bar, but also the place where most ship events will take place (welcome and farewell cocktail), and doubles as an ideal place for lectures. It’s the ideal site to chill and relax with Wi-Fi hot spot and direct access to our al fresco terrace.

Who said an expedition can’t be luxurious too? The ship is equipped with everything guests need to be in full vacation mode, whether that means keeping active or keeping relaxed.
