Top-of-the-range cruise liner combining the amenities and comforts of a large ship with the exclusivity and exploratory spirit of a smaller vessel.

The Isabela II is a top-of-the-range cruise liner designed for clients who wish to experience the exploratory spirit of a Galápagos cruise in an atmosphere of exclusivity and relative luxury. She has capacity for just 40 passengers (extremely well looked after by the crew of 26, including three English-speaking naturalist guides), with the amenities and public areas normally found only on larger ships.

Accommodation is in 20 lower berth cabins in four room types, all of which have air-conditioning and an outside view. The décor is extremely smart: rooms are decorated in unfussy cream and chestnut enhanced with a generous use of polished wood. All cabins have seats, dressing tables and cupboards, while four cabins have double beds for either single or double occupancy. There is a bar, dining room, spacious sun deck, Jacuzzi and well-stocked library. Kayaks, snorkelling equipment and wetsuits are available but there is also glass-bottom for those who wish to enjoy the colourful underwater scenery without snorkelling.
