From a four-day island-hopping break to a fortnight-long trip through the entirety of the Galápagos, the Cormorant offers a full range of itineraries to suit any taste. The shorter routes focus on either the southern or central islands, impressing with the likes of Floreana’s flamingos and volcanic hikes, the giant tortoises and nesting turtles of Santa Cruz, and the chance to spot lava lizards and swim with sea lion pups on Española. Then, longer eight-day itineraries mix in everything from North Seymour’s reef sharks and Santiago’s sting-ray snorkelling to Isabela’s penguins and spectacular land iguanas. Can’t choose? Look to the 15-day offering.


Host to just eight cabins, the Cormorant feels more like a private yacht than even the smallest, most exclusive of cruise ships. As such, expect a flawlessly contemporary aesthetic throughout, with darkwood floors, polished timber accents and plush furnishings spread across the public areas. It’s a considered style that continues into the accommodation; bright-white linens and rounded doors, as is the maritime style. Each is generously sized at 24 square metres and all come with a private balcony – ideal for sipping a glass of wine as the islands slip by. Stylish en suites, large televisions and prints of the local wildlife round things off. For some extra space, consider booking onto one of the two suites.


Having spent over 24 years’ working in restaurants both on land and at sea, Xavier Huirachocha is one of the finest chefs in the Galápagos. And, with signature creative flair, he showcases the best in local ingredients – there’s no noticing that there are strict limitations on food imported to the region. Whether it’s international favourites, traditional Ecuadorian specialities or special dietary requirements, you’ll be well looked after with indulgent buffet lunches and breakfast, along with sit-down gourmet dinners. Lastly, the opportunity to take you meals al fresco on the deck is a nice touch.


With shore excursions led by a bilingual Galápagos National Park guide, the ship’s resident naturalist will showcase the best of the islands’ myriad highlights. There’s everything from beach walks and volcanic hikes to the chance to kayak and snorkel with the wildlife using the Cormorant’s onboard equipment. Then, at day’s end, you’ll return to expertly mixed cocktails and an intimate Sun Deck. Between comfy loungers and a bubbling Jacuzzi, it’s the perfect place to relax with a cool drink.
