M/Y Xavier III Galapagos

When clients request recommendations for more affordable cruises in Galapagos Islands without sacrificing comfort or the amount of time they want to stay, the first option that comes to mind is Xavier III Galapagos. Taking a look into the distribution of cabins, on this yacht, they decided to focus on the social and lounge areas, allowing for a complete spacious deck with no cabins, guests will be able to enjoy briefings and dinners in a cozy yet open environment, while many yachts of the class feel cramped during meetings.

All 8 cabins offer twin beds for up to 16 guests with enough private space to relax, complete bathrooms and a/c. Decoration has a classy yet modern feel, decluttered and tidy.

Xavier III Galapagos distinguishes itself from other cruisers thanks to a very friendly and accommodating staff, endorsed by many guest reviews, otherwise, it would be impossible to tackle the 14 and 21-day excursions offered, placing this yacht among our favorite suggestions.
