Client Rating for Ecuador 5/5 from 82 reviews

By far the best. The boat is magnificent, very modern, clean and spacious. Everywhere was maintained in spotless condition and every time we returned to our room it had been cleaned and tidied and was a pleasure to return to. The rooms have huge picture windows which are superb whilst sailing. Each and every staff member played their part in making the trip the best experience and always used our names. The food was superb.
