Ever since her arrival in Ecuador, the Eclipse has surpassed the other options available as the finest boutique cruise ship in the Galapagos Islands, offering unparalleled levels of comfort and service. She was converted specifically for upscale cruising in the islands, and was designed to meet the exacting demands of luxury travel.
The Eclipse has 4 types of cabin, all of which have sea views:
4 Deluxe Staterooms on the Boat Deck
8 Superior Staterooms on the Boat Deck
12 Staterooms on the Main Deck
2 Single Staterooms on the Main Deck
Fully air-conditioned, the Eclipse´s spacious cabins have either a double or twin bed arrangement, with two bedside tables, a writing desk, chair, ample closet space, private safety deposit box and an internal communications system. All twin beds can be converted to queen-size beds. Cabins are serviced three times a day. Room service is not available, but will be provided in the event of passenger illness. Deluxe and Superior Staterooms on the Boat Deck have picture windows and Staterooms on the Main Deck have portholes.
The well-appointed bathrooms consist of a shower, toilet, sink, cabinet, hairdryer and a basket of toiletries. Please feel free to use the complimentary bathrobes.

Sandra, We had a lovely time. Everything worked well, the boat, the crew and our guide Gustavo were really nice, and the 16 passengers got on really well which is an important thing when you´re living so close together. And the weather was kind to us, and we saw interesting places and wildlife. Patrick S.Patrick S
