Ms. Karen Mancini

"Even if I had to abandon ship, the ship was only average. It was old and tired and the condition just average. In our cabin the air conditioning was broken and the bed wet, but they fixed it more or less straight away, which was good. The food (I didn't eat for two days) but my husband said it was ok, average. The most disappointing thing was the staff, they were really not very friendly. No one spoke English and it was as if they were just "putting-up" with us. Also the captain never introduced himself which I was really surprised about, that I found just rude! "

Sarah
"I cannot fault anything with Archipel I - fantastic itinerary, superb crew, wonderful (and plentiful) food, excellent guide. Cabins were fairly small but with adequate space for luggage, clothing etc. and the only time we spent in the cabin was to sleep and shower. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending this boat for anyone visiting the Galapagos and would very happily get on the next flight to Baltra to sail on her again!"
