"We'd deliberately booked cabin six 18 months before our cruise because it had two large picture windows and we were happy with our choice, even though the rooms with portholes were larger with more storage. However, an underbed drawer would have been very useful. Apart from that, the boat was kept clean, the food was very good and the staff were good - we had most to do with Enrico the barman/cabin boy, and he was excellent. Our guide Fabian was very knowledgeable. Having only 16 passengers were a crucial factor in our choice of ship and luckily we all got on. Being on a small boat we felt the ocean swell quite strongly at times but personally I like that."

"Staff and guide were excellent and we thouroughly enjoyed our time on the ship. Our only issue was with the tipping. The Tribes information gave suggestions for the guides and drivers but the Beluga had its own recommendation that we only found once on the boat and unfortunately after the last town visit. Luckily the guide accompanied us to the airport so we were able to tip the crew with our remaining cash and pay our bar bill and tip our guide once we visited the ATM at the airport."
"Cabin 7 was super. Not much storage space so take soft bags that can be squashed under the bed. Nice to have huge windows to admire the view. Very attentive and helpful crew. "

"The Beluga was just right for the Galapagos trip. There were only 14 passengers and no spare male so I had a cabin to myself. All the crew were very keen to be helpful and made the trip very enjoyable."
