The Isabela II and her crew were amazing, hard working and incredibly kind. Their Naturalists, Blanca, Carlos and Carlos 2 were educational, funny and gracious hosts. Your beautiful yacht is blessed with a beautiful crew. That is why I’m dubbing the Isabela II with the name “The Empress of the Galapagos”. While there is another yacht with the name “The Queen of the Galapagos,” she cannot compare to the grandeur of your yacht. She is, without a doubt, the finest ship in the Galapagos.
The ship fed us like royalty with plentiful verities of nutritious foods and desserts that were truly scrumptious. I was amazed that I did not gain 1 pound on this trip because I pretty much ate everything they had. They also kept us very active so that may have helped me keep the weight off.
The ship was very well organized. Each ship in every bay we anchored in was aware of the other ship and its passengers
and knew where everyone was so that we did not over crowed any one area or lose track of anyone.
