For many people owning a private luxury yacht is the ultimate in indulgence. Thanks to the Motor Yacht Passion you can now experience this for yourself as you discover the wonders of Galapagos. Built originally as a private family floating palace, Passion entered the Galapagos cruise fleet in 2015. Intended to be the standout luxury experience in the islands, her name perfectly describes what the owners and crew have for your comfort and for the archipelago – passion.
Other vessels of this size operating Galapagos tourist cruises will usually be fitted out to carry 40 guests in elegant comfort. Passion carries a maximum of only 12 guests in exclusive opulence and charm. You have the choice of stunning accommodation between four luxurious staterooms, and two simply remarkable suites. The staterooms feature beautiful, modern design, with luxury fabrics and linens. Each boast a gorgeous private bathroom filled with designer toiletries and beautiful fixtures and fittings and, uniquely, a bathtub. Every stateroom has USB points, allowing you to charge all your devices directly. They also enjoy beautiful wood panelling, individual climate control, generous windows and ample storage and closet space.
For the ultimate experience, particularly if you are embarking on a “trip-of-a-lifetime” Galapagos cruise adventure, why not see if a suite is available? There are two on board – the Master Suite and the VIP Suite. Both offer unprecedented levels of luxury for a Galapagos cruise, including two private bathrooms in each suite laid out in Italian marble with bathtub, as well as a beautiful private lounge area. There is no better way to travel around the islands.
Away from your stateroom or suite, the Passion is no less sumptuous. The panoramic Sky Lounge and Bar is an amazing place to relax with a drink and swap stories about your Galapagos adventure. Complimentary water, tea, coffee and fruit juice is always available. The main sundeck offers a delightful, comfortable area to soak up the equatorial sun and embrace the sights and sounds of the Galapagos. There is a smaller, more intimate sundeck with a hot tub – perfect for quiet relaxation.
When it comes to food, a Passion cruise offers you a wonderful fine dining experience, whether sitting down at the beautiful table for dinner in the sumptuous dining room, or enjoying a relaxed lunch in the charming alfresco dining area. The culinary team will prepare you a stunning array of Ecuadorian and international dishes, made with the freshest ingredients, and designed to delight all of your senses. Her head chef tells us that the “farewell grill” is his favorite meal. “More than the food, this evening is always a memorable experience, as we always chat with the guests as well as exchanging grilling tips and a secret recipe or two!” With Passion you can enjoy a Galapagos cruise that amazes your taste buds, as well as all your other senses!
