Louise22, thanks so much for your reply. Funny, but 105 is the same cabin my husband and I have. Our friends are in 104 - from the start I was told by one of the Lindblad reps that the size of these cabins was decent so I chanced it - I imagined that we will be out and about most of the days and use the cabin for showering and sleeping. I am glad that you didn't experience any noise and feel better about my choice of cabins.
I would love to hear from you about what shoes/clothing to pack to be able to cover both the Galapagos and Machu Picchu. I imagine more "wintry" clothing is called for in Machu Picchu. Also, is there a weight restriction on the flight from the mainland to Galapagos and if so, how much? Would also love to hear your opinion/take on the quality of the naturalists/crew. We are very much looking forward to this trip. It has been our dream vacation for sometime. Have worked our way up in the last few years by first doing a few cruises
We are scheduled on the Sept. 28 trip and are quite excited, obviously. The only curve ball at this time is that my husband ended up in the hospital this w/end and has been diagnosed with supraventricular tachycardia. Hopefully the medicines will keep it under control (for years the poor man thought the awful chest pain he would get was acid reflux). Now it's up to the cardiologist whether Machu Picchu is in the cards or not. We are optimistic though that with extra dosification, he'll be okay. Other than that, we are both still active and healthy.
Your additional input is greatly appreciated.
