With room for 16 travellers and a CEO Naturalist Guide inside her modest-yet-surprisingly-roomy confines, the Estrella is everything you could want in a ship at a price you won’t believe. The Estrella isn’t as big as some of the other ships, but her cabins and public spaces are deceptively roomy. There’s more than enough space for everyone on board, especially up on her glorious wraparound upper deck. The Estrella carries a team of seven crew members and one CEO Naturalist Guide who are well-versed in the local wildlife, vegetation, and geology of the islands, certified by the Galapagos National Park Service.
