Cruises are much different from travelling in passenger jets or trains perhaps because they offer a fun and memorable adventure. A cruise to Galapagos Islands is no different with a constantly pleasant weather, breathtaking natural beauty, scenic landscapes, green rainforests and sandy white shores. Galapagos is the name of a group of thirteen islands situated 600 miles west of the Ecuadorian Coast in the Pacific. These islands are listed among the World Heritage Sites being a sanctuary for endangered and some very rare animal species.
Because of the preserved natural habitat of endangered species that the islands have managed to maintain, a cruise to Galapagos is as popular among wildlife enthusiasts as it is among nature lovers. Cruises offer something unique to everyone; the thrill of sailing through the calm, azure waters of the Pacific, the overwhelming sense of excitement and the amazing panoramic view of all the thirteen Galapagos islands.
Cruises have formal dinners every evening where you can partake in various festivities such as balls, karaoke contests, a magic show, or even an act of stand-up comedy. Or you can just enjoy the assortment of delicious dishes that are served at your table. Cruises also have buffets once every week that allow you to eat as much as your heart desires. Some cruisers even have their own casinos where you can try your luck with cards and jackpot slot-machine.
Most people who cruise to Galapagos like it because of the chance to lounge on the spacious sundeck and bask in the tropical sun. Others rub on sun tan lotion as the tropical sun is perfect for getting that tan you have always wanted. Swimming pools and wading pools are a common feature that is available to the passengers all the time and Jacuzzis offer a refreshing massage on days you feel lethargic and are drained of energy.
Fishing is another common recreational activity as the seas of Galapagos thrive with big fishes that make an easy catch if you have the right bait. Catching your own meat to eat only adds to the thrill and excitement of cruising. When on a cruise to Galapagos Islands, it is customary for cruisers to dock at all thirteen islands of the Galapagos allowing visitors to experience first-hand the natural beauty and curious wildlife of the islands that are renowned throughout the world.
Even without the casinos, luxury suites, swimming pools and evening entertainment, the overall experience of the cruising through the calm cerulean seas of the Pacific is as good a reason to go on a cruise vacation because of the tranquility and relaxation. So you might want to make the right choice next time you have a tour guide in your hands.
