Discover the Galápagos Islands onboard a brand-new luxury cruise vessel with Sunvil Latin America

January 28, 2019 | Sunvil Holidays

Expert independent specialist Sunvil has introduced a brand-new luxury Galápagos cruise vessel, MV Theory, to its Latin America programme.

MV Theory and its sister ship MV Origin (also offered by Sunvil) are the only two ships in the Galápagos to have been awarded a Relais & Châteaux certification. As such, guests can be guaranteed a very high level of comfort and service while discovering this unique destination onboard the luxurious new small yacht.

MV Theory will mimic the design of its sister ship, featuring ten deluxe ensuite rooms with panoramic views, sundeck with Jacuzzi and loungers, indoor lounge and bar, small gym, library and more, all topped off with stylish furnishings and useful extras such as air-conditioning and Apple TV. The MV Theory will offer an idyllic way to explore this otherworldly archipelago.

Departing from San Cristóbal, guests have the choice between two comprehensive seven-night itineraries: The Southern/Central route or the Western/Northern route, with the option to combine both for the ultimate two-week tour of the islands. Each itinerary highlights the best of the Galápagos, from its striking landscapes to its rich and varied wildlife, bird life and marine creatures.

On MV Theory’s Southern and Central route, guests can spot countless species of birds while hiking Punta Pitt – one of the best sites for birdwatching. Take in spectacular Gardner Bay – a white-sand beach dotted with colonies of sea lions – spot exotic fish, sharks, turtles and rays at the Devil’s Crown rocks, just off Floreana Island, and explore the stunning geological formations at Puerto Ayora, including the fascinating lava tunnels.

The Western and Northern route offers an equally exciting take on the archipelago. Guests can see the famous swallow-tailed and lava gulls on Darwin Bay as well as bright pink flamingos in the lagoons of Las Bachas. Navigating their way through caves and spotting penguins diving through water at Vicente Roca, and spying octopus, starfish and other marine life in the tidepools of Puerto Egas are other highlights.

With its inaugural launch on 3 March, a seven-night cruise on board the MV Theory – including full-board accommodation, twice daily guided shore excursions, transfers and return flights from mainland Ecuador – costs from £6,054 pp (two sharing). International flights are extra.
