Description and details
Diving on the MY Passion in Galapagos
MY Passion – Bellissima floating in the turquoise blue water of the Galapagos Islands
The 48.5 meters (approx. 159 feet) MY Passion was renovated in 2017. It was never used for tourism before this renovation. It was now turned into a gorgeous miniature cruise ship with luxurious facilities. The exclusive dimensions and features of the MY Passion yacht will make you feel like home. The opulent vessel was previously a private family yacht, which was never used for tourism before. The well-trained and courteous crew of the white sailing beauty is bilingual and friendly. They are always vigilant and focused on providing the best services to the guests. There is a 1:1 ratio of crew and guests, which makes the services exclusive and extremely personalized. It is considered as a perfect choice for charters. Whether it’s a birthday, anniversary or family occasion like a reunion or any special get together with friends, you will experience hospitality at a new level.
Boat Interior – refurbished vessel with the same teakwood interior
It welcomes a small group of 14 guests only, unlike other Galapagos cruise ships, which are crowded with 40+ travelers and make it a congested place to spend your vacation. The lesser number of travelers means that you will get exceptionally personalized services as promised by MY Passion and its team. There are 6 cabins in total (4 standard cabins + 1 VIP and 1 Master Suite). All the cabins have eminent facilities like en-suite bathroom with shower, washbasin, toiletries (towels, bathrobes, shampoo, and soap), cozy beds with mattresses and pillows, hairdryer, wardrobe, storage space, and windows so that you don’t miss a single view despite relaxing in the room. There is a panoramic sky lounge, a bar, indoor dining, al fresco dining, and a jacuzzi. All these communal areas are located on different decks of the vessel.
The decks of the MY Passion liveaboard have lots of space to roam around relax. The upper deck of the yacht is named as Sky Lounge. It has huge windows, which offer panoramic views of the surroundings, a bar with a courteous bartender, outdoor dining with al fresco tables. On the sun deck, you will find a secluded jacuzzi. You can relax here with a chilled drink in the open-air with the fresh sea breeze.
Food and Entertainment
What is better than a tasteful surprise? On MY Passion food is given as big of importance as anything else on the yacht. Whenever you uncover the lid, you will find a scrumptious dish of Ecuadorian or International delicacies waiting to satisfy your hunger. All meals are presented in a buffet style, so there is plenty of options from which you can choose yours. You can enjoy a drink of your choice from the bar and have it in the indoor saloon while watching a movie of your choice on the large flat screen TV. There are several options for entertainment there, like board games, movies, music and much more.
