A Galapagos cruise could very well be one of the most memorable times of your life. This little volcanic archipelago in the middle of nowhere has truly one-of-a-kind wildlife and an incredible history. It's one of those rare places where you get that perfect mix of bizarre, incredible, and 100% unique.
Combining an amazing place like the Galapagos Islands with a luxury cruise? It doesn't get any better than that.
The tricky part is deciding which cruise to go for. There are a lot of vessels that can take you exploring seemingly prehistoric world, all with their own pros and cons.
Previously, the Ecuadorian government was planning on making travel insurance a requirement for entering mainland Ecuador. That has since been cancelled and you will not need to demonstrate proof of travel insurance to enter Ecuador. Entering the Galapagos, however, is another story. The latest news (as of me writing this post) is that travel insurance will at some point be a requirement, but there is no information regarding when this will be enforced. This is part of a very long series of enforcement dates that have been pushed back. It was supposed to be going into effect as of November 1st, but now we basically just don't know when this will be mandatory.
Selfies with giant tortoises, marine iguanas and blue-footed boobies while you're on a trip to the Galapagos are definitely Instagram-worthy. Besides plastering social media with mind-blowing photos of the islands, sometimes you simply need to be in contact with the outside world. So what's the Galapagos cell phone coverage like throughout the archipelago? Cell coverage can be spotty. Generally the populated areas have decent coverage, but the uninhabited islands and open ocean are typically out of range.
In this article I'll outline what to expect, and what options you have.
Food and travel; one of the most natural pairings of the universe.

There's one thing I've learned from my traveling around the world. If you let a great chef cook a meal that he grew up eating, he'll knock it out of the park every time.
Ecuador has some amazing dishes that are truly unique to this country. Traditional coastal foods do a great job of showcasing what can come from the ocean. A cruise is quite possibly the best setting to enjoy seafood!
Let me introduce you to some traditional Ecuadorian foods that I've absolutely fallen in love with!
Let’s face it – cruises are awesome. Even if they’re just a few days, they’re memorable for years, and well worth all the desktop background pictures at work! When it comes to choosing an actual cruise, though, there are tons of destinations to choose from. Does it matter where you go? Yes. Different cruise destinations offer totally different experiences. You could hardly find more of a contrast between the eco-friendly Galapagos and the glamorous Caribbean.
