The best way to see the Galapagos Islands is on board a luxury cruise, and the new Horizon is an ideal choice. Guests travel in comfort to the different islands, where they have up-close encounters with blue-footed boobies, iguanas, giant tortoises, whales and more. One of the newest ships in Galapagos, the Horizon offers a deluxe way to visit these magical islands. The Horizon is elegant, swift and silent at sea. A motorised trimaran, the Horizon is designed for comfort and stability and is outfitted with spacious cabins, a comfortable lounge, and Jacuzzi.

The emphasis is on the remarkable Natural History of Galapagos, with a maximum of 16 guests travelling with guides who are knowledgeable about biology and ecology in addition to having excellent language skills and client reviews.

The Trimaran has 8 luxury cabins, each with its own private balcony and spacious bathroom. The public areas are stunning, with indoor and outdoor dining, large sun deck, jacuzzi and spacious lounge where nightly lectures are held.
