In the Galápagos, new expedition cruisers are joining the very few luxury hotels as one of the ways to experience the islands’ singular wilderness. Up this month is the 50-cabin Santa Cruz II; it’s operated by seasoned Galápagos hands Metropolitan Touring, which means routes and land access through the northern, eastern and western islands will be first rate, comprising daily beach and nature walks, snorkelling and diving, and excursions in her glass-bottomed tenders. Journey Latin America (www.journeylatinamerica.co.uk) offers a five-night itinerary from £3,398 per person full board.
