Agents can now make bookings on G Adventures’ new Reina Silvia Voyager for 2020 departures.

The cruise line has introduced a sixth yacht to its fleet of vessels touring the Galápagos Islands, which is due to set to set sail from July 2020.

G Adventures’ new custom-built ship will offer access to 20 different islands in the Galápagos and with 40 different itineraries ranging from seven to 17 days in length, guests are guaranteed an in-depth and immersive tour of the archipelago.

With there having been a 19 per cent surge in global bookings of its marine-based cruises in the Galápagos since January 2016,  G Adventures’ new vessel reflects the cruise line’s commitment to meeting the demands of its passengers.

The 103-foot Reina Silvia Voyager catamaran will cruise the region as a high-end touring vessel, accommodating up to 16 passengers in 10 cabins on two decks. Eight of those cabins have been designed for twin/double stays, and two are dedicated to solo travellers.

Eight rooms have private balconies, while all rooms have panoramic windows for ocean viewing, along with contemporary furnishings and artwork by local naturalist photographers.

The vessel also features an expansive third deck with lounge chairs for sunbathing, covered cocktail bar, grill station and an outdoor jacuzzi tub. An indoor, air-conditioned salon with large video screen will enable visual presentations from specially trained naturalists, who will guide each group’s tour and help guests learn about the wildlife and culture of the Galápagos Islands’ inhabitants.

Guests will be able to disembark the ship and explore the region’s remotest ports thanks to the nine on-board kayaks and two zodiacs. A crew of nine, including a dedicated chef, will serve guests daily.

“There is nothing in the world like making eye contact with a curious sea lion, gentle sea turtle, tiny seahorse or prehistoric iguana in a place where Darwin himself studied evolution.

“We want our guests to have all of these adventurous experiences and still enjoy a dose of maritime luxury,” said Yves Marceau, G Adventures’ Boston-based global vice president of product. “The Reina Silvia Voyager is being purpose-built to enable nimble, immersive moments in and under the water, before welcoming guests back on board in ultimate comfort.”

All of the 2020 voyages will start and finish in the capital city of Quito, offering sailing through either the eastern or western Galápagos, including the inhabited islands of Isabela, Floreana, Santa Cruz and San Cristobal, plus eight other uninhabited islands which are protected within the Galápagos National Park system.

Highlighting its commitment to preserving the environment and as part of its ban on single-use plastic bottles, G Adventures will give each passenger a reusable stainless bottle and will offer unlimited access to filtered drinking water on board.
