Isabela Island Galapagos

Isabela Island Galapagos, The weather simply could not have been more delightful…”Oh, sorry. Was I name-dropping?” You’re darn right I was because trust me, just about the only thing more incredible than exploring these “Enchanted Islands” is to be doing it in style aboard the M/Y Grace.

Grace and I shared the same view

Half a century ago, Aristotle Onassis graciously gave his yacht to Princess Grace and Prince Rainier of Monaco for their wedding present, which the royal couple used for a romantic honeymoon cruise through the Mediterranean. During the years that followed, this classic craft went through many different owners and name changes, until Ecuador-based, Quasar Expeditions, one of the most experienced names in Galapagos travel for over 25 years, acquired the aging vessel in 2007. She took a couple of years off, “had some work done” (she always did have great bone structure) and later emerged with her understated elegance and former status fully restored. This proud beauty was then, most appropriately, re-christened M/Y Grace.
