National Geographic Islander national-geographic-islander

Sailing to the Galapagos year round, National Geographic Islander is best suited to those looking for a more active kind of cruising. As an expedition ship, she offers an expansive range of expedition tools, allowing her guests to see and experience a lesser known side of the region. 


All 24 of Islander's cabins feature ocean view, either through windows, or glassed-in terraces. Cabins were designed with expedition in mind, offering ample drawer space in the desk and beneath the bed(s) so you can store any luggage you may have.


Food & Drink

Serving regionally inspired meals, Islander's dining room offers guests the change to try out new dishes in a casual and relaxed ambience.


Life on Board

Islander offers a range of traditional entertainment amenities, including a Lounge, Bar, Library and shop. Some of them have a distinct expedition feels, as the shop sells items made by the people of Galapagos, and the Bridge is open to guests so they can survey the horizon.

This allows us to offer authentic, up-close experiences in the planet's wild, remote places and capitals of culture. More than comfortable as your base for exploring, our National Geographic luxury cruise ships are outfitted with cool tools that enable a genuine connection with the places we visit and offer inviting private accommodations, and gracious public spaces for our expedition community to gather.
