We have arrived in absolute luxury onboard the grand odyssey ! Is is a small cruise ship for 13 passengers and 14 crew. Daybeds are everywhere there are two hot tubs and exercise equipment. Our suite has two ensuite bathrooms with large glass showers and are impeccably decorated. I am so excited for the next few days and hope that the weather will be favorable. I had no idea Luxury yachting would be this amazing.  This choice was added on last minute, we debated for a long time if we really should do this lag of the journey, the only reason holding us back was the price tag on this week long adventure. But Galapagos has always had a very special place for both of us and we truly wanted to see it in person and we bit the bullet. I now fully understand the price and value for your money. No money could buy this experience. We have the captains suite as well so that helps ;) right on top and so much space it is truly like a floating luxury suite.
It is such an amazing set up , as each day we experience something new and explore a new location and species of animals and at night we navigate. So each morning is new and exciting and you never know what you will see when you look out your window...  
Such peace and such beauty. An amazing journey through nature, for the first time I feel part of this complete world of oceans, animals, plants, people and the never ending sky. People are Not superior here, the animals rule and this is their sanctuary, one of the few left on this earth. They have allowed us in to their world and I am loving every minute.
