Solaris

Solaris Description

A great addition to the archipelago’s first-class fleet, the Solaris Galapagos Yacht is the newest yacht in the islands, set to receive up to 16 passengers in style. A small, comfortable yacht, she offers modern design in a stunning neutral palette but yet retains her informal, relaxed attitude in both social areas and cabins. She features an ample lounge area with wide windows for panoramic views of the surrounding natural beauty and one of the islands’ top-stocked bars. Her library is a great place to read or play games with the kids.  Or step outside, where her spacious sundeck offers not only comfortable lounge chairs but also top service, with delicious outside bar drinks available right on deck.

The Solaris Galapagos Yacht inherited its crew and its great Galapagos itineraries from a much-loved older ship. For her guests, this means that guides really know their stuff and will share their long-standing love for the Enchanted Isles with everyone aboard. The kitchen staff is well known for their generous and varied meals, combining both international and Ecuadorian favorites as well as the opportunity to taste local seafood and produce when available. And both safety and fun are priorities onboard...the crew takes great care to make sure the ship is spotless and well-run while you are out and about snorkeling, hiking or kayaking.

Families, couples and singles alike will find a cabin arrangement that works well for them. The ship sports 10 roomy cabins – 5 doubles on the upper deck can be turned into triples with the addition of an extra single bed and 5 cabins on the main deck have been designated as single cabins (no sharing, no supplement). So, however, you choose to visit the archipelago, a beautifully designed, cost-effective cabin with hot and cold showers, plenty of closet space and room for yourself will await.

Top features

  • Brand new first-class ship with top modern design at a mid-range price point
  • Great for solo travelers (no supplement)
  • Generous cabins offer numerous options for couples and families (triples available)
