Galapagos Islands cruise specialist, Ecoventura, has begun accepting reservations for its newest luxury yacht MV Theory, a sister-ship to the MV Origin which launched in 2016.

Named after Charles Darwin’s Theory of Evolution, the ship will continue Ecoventura’s commitment to bringing five-star luxury to the seas with the environment in mind. MV Theory will be a 20-passenger megayacht featuring 10 premium cabins with a minimalist chic design, all located on the same deck.

The MV Theory will also include similar on-board amenities that guests of the MV Origin enjoy, including a full-time concierge, fitness centre, a sundeck with chic loungers and daybeds, an open-bar policy and a Jacuzzi.

Designed with discerning couples, families, and multi-generational travellers in mind, MV Theory’s cabins feature twin beds that can convert into full king-size beds. The ship also offers connecting rooms for families as well as triple cabins.

All staterooms are the same size and to connect guests with the Galapagos’ one-of-a-kind wildlife, each room features large, three-panel panoramic windows, as well as a private bathroom with essential modern luxuries including a rainfall shower, hairdryer, plush towels, bathrobes, and eco-friendly biodegradable soaps and shampoos.

Guests can also enjoy locally inspired Ecuadorian cuisine from the comfort of the ship’s dining room or in an al-fresco setting on the sundeck. MV Theory will also offer sustainable, plant-based vegetarian and gluten-free meals, catering to a variety of food preferences.

The Theory will operate on Ecoventura’s current schedule, which rotates between two A & B seven-night itineraries and can be combined into a comprehensive two-week excursion.

Itinerary A will follow a southern/central route, and Itinerary B will follow a northern/western route. On both routes, guests can partake in daily excursions on shore, optional snorkel or glass-bottom boat and kayaking or SUP tours and will come face-to-face with the Galapagos’ freely wondering wildlife, including sea lions, blue-footed boobies, penguins, tortoises and more.

The naturalist-to-passenger ratio is just 10 guests per guide, and MV Theory has the favoured passenger-to-crew ratio in this segment with 14 crew members on board.

Cabins are now on sale for cruises commencing the week of 10-17 March 2019.

Rates start at US$7,850 per person based on double occupancy and include all meals, beverages and snacks, Captain’s welcome and farewell social gatherings, an open-bar policy, guided shore excursions, briefings and enrichment lectures, snorkel equipment, sea kayaks, paddle boards, airport check-in, meet and greet upon arrival and transfers in the islands between the airport and dock.

Agents can book Ecoventura through their preferred Latin America wholesaler.
