Custom-designed for sustainability and comfort, the Origin, Theory & Evolve- the Relais Chateaux luxury cruises, is the ultimate Galapagos cruise vessel, offering luxurious amenities while minimizing environmental impacts. The state of the art design also allows us to spend less time traveling between islands, so our guests have more time for actual exploration.
The Origin, Theory & Evolve blends the best of tasteful design and decor, luxury amenities, and environmental sustainability. The 20-passenger vessel was custom built to maximize fuel efficiency and comfort, and incorporated feedback from guests collected over the company’s more than two decades as a leader in Galapagos expedition cruising.
