Yves Marceau, G Adventures’ Vice President of Product, who is overseeing the design and construction said The Reina Silvia Voyager is being purpose-built to “enable nimble, immersive moments in and under the water, then welcome guests back on board in ultimate comfort”.

These G Adventures voyages start and finish in the capital city of Quito, and offer sailing through either the eastern or western Galápagos.

With 40 different itineraries ranging from 7 to 17 days in length, The Reina Silvia Voyager will allow G Adventures to meet the increasing traveller demand it is seeing for Galápagos adventure.

There has been a 19% surge in global bookings of its marine-based cruises in the region since January 2016.
