The Friend Experience

Kayaking In Galapagos.
The Galapagos Islands Are Perfect For Adventures With Friends And Unique Experiences.

If you’re looking to party, many of our cruise ships are equipped with bars and even small party-lounges where you’ll be able to dance the night away. You can also drop by one of the cities in the island for a more localized party experience. The Galapagos Islands offer a spectacular backdrop to any spring break vacation. Pamper yourselves surrounded by sights unlike anything you’ve ever seen before. You won’t regret it – we guarantee it.

Santa Cruz II is a replacement for the much-loved Santa Cruz, which plied the waters of the Galapagos for 36 years. It is not a new ship; it was built in 2002 and sailed as Mare Australis under the Australis cruise brand, operating expedition cruises around Cape Horn and to Antarctica. Metropolitan Touring bought the ship in 2015 and completely refurbished it, launching it as Santa Cruz II in October 2015.
