Galapagos Budget Cruising
These are budget oriented Galapagos Islands cruises for people with a tight pocket. These cruises are usually popular with backpackers and young people.
They follow the same course as the majority of the other boats without the luxuries. The bathrooms are usually shared with some exceptions(oftentimes with the crew as well), the rooms are small to cramped, and you aren’t guaranteed a guide with a good command of the English (French, German etc.) language, yet the guide is certified by the Galapagos National Park and has gone through strict training.
An advantage to going on an economy cruise is the smaller size of the yacht. There are fewer people, and it can be a more intimate experience. Sometimes it is a gamble with these boats, the cheapest of the cruise boats in the Galapagos Islands.
A lot of travelers who choose boats in this class leave wishing they had spent the extra couple of hundred dollars for a boat in a higher class. There are also quite a few travelers who have a great time, though, and save a lot of money. With some research and the reviews posted in this section, you should be able to avoid the lemons and get the best for your money. There are quite a few that have a good record of happy passengers.
If you choose the right boat you will have a great experience at a lower cost.
