Cruise Ships in The Galapagos Islands : La Pinta
A 48 passenger motor yacht, La Pinta combines high end service and attention to detail with comfortable accommodations and social space. The itineraries have been arranged with great care to make the most of guests' time in the Galapagos and to see the most diverse amount of wildlife possible.
Refurbished for the Galapagos in 2007, La Pinta features 28 cabins with a maximum capacity of 48 passengers, making it a unique mid size option vessel. Guests will benefit from a wide variety of amenities and services not generally found on small boats such as a glass bottom boat for marine wildlife viewing, fitness center, satellite internet, medical facilities and a natural history library.
The rooms are spacious and inviting with additional sitting space and large picture windows. Breakfast and lunch are buffet style while dinner is served a la carte and occasionally outdoors when weather permits.
La Pinta's excursion manager has spent considerable time to put together the most complete itineraries possible to ensure a full Galapagos experience regardless of the routing.
Floor to ceiling windows are one of the highlights of each of the 24 cabins. In addition, all feature private bathrooms with hot water and individual air conditioning. There are also four connecting cabins perfect for families that wish to keep together.
The twenty luxury cabins measure 17 m² with either two twin beds or one matrimonial bed, a small sitting area, ample storage space and full length mirror.
