M.V. Eclipse

The M.V. Eclipse has been awarded the Smart Voyager green seal of approval by the Rainforest Alliance. Most Galapagos cruises of a similar size carry 80 to 100 passengers. The Eclipse, however, hosts a maximum of 48 guests in 26 spacious, air-conditioned cabins, all with outside views. Every cabin boasts either picture windows or large portholes, providing a view of the surrounding waters. The M.V. Eclipse boasts features such as a library, a boutique, a lounge and an infirmary with a doctor on board at all times. All of the staterooms are fully air-conditioned and have either a double or twin bed arrangement, with two bedside tables, a writing desk, chair, ample closet space, private safety deposit box and an internal communications system. All the ship’s twin beds can be converted to king-size beds upon request. All cabins have both 110 & 220 volt electrical outlets. The well-appointed bathrooms consist of a shower, toilet, sink, cabinet, hairdryer and amenities specially created for the M.V. Eclipse. While the M.V. Eclipse has an elegant indoor dining area, when weather conditions permit guests can take advantage of the al fresco dining area at the stern of the vessel for lunch – and occasionally for breakfast and dinner. Lunching on deck allows guests to enjoy the sunshine and sea breezes – and the view – while cruising from one island to the next. Few vessels in this category offer the opportunity for outdoor dining, accommodating all guests in one sitting. One of the most popular areas on board the M.V. Eclipse is the observation / sun deck, ideal for stargazing, whale watching, or simply lazing in the jacuzzi.
