Thanks for a great review! We will be sailing on the Expedtion in November of this year - basically the same timeframe. I do have a few questions. How was the weather and water temperature? You mentioned a dietary need. Once the staff was made aware, were you pleased with the way it was handled both on land and during the sailing? Did you take advantage of the upgrade on the flight? What were the benefits? I appreciate the reminder about neutral clothing - I have a severe allergy to stings and am petrified of bees and wasps. In the past, others have mentioned they were a problem oboard near the hot tub - did you notice any? I'm sure I will think of more to ask and I value your input!Water temps - walking along the beach in the surf, I was fine. But I knew it would be chilly snorkeling. They do offer wet suits and my husband and son-in-law snorkeled several times but my husband told me I would still have been cold so I skipped it. They did say there were some amazing sites like penguins zipping by you....
Thank you so much for your review! This cruise is on my radar for sometime in the next 3 years or so, I do have a question or two please:Hi Cruise Kitty ~ the AC in our cabin was fine. Neither of us (hubby or me) remember it being a problem and I like to sleep "cool" at home. 69 is normally where have our air set at home.
1.Was the AC in your cabin adequate? I've read about some problems with AC on the Galapagos Cruises
2. Would shorts have been ok for dining at night time? I would prefer not to pack any if I don't need to.
Thank you for your beautiful photos!
Host Anne, thank you so much for such a in depth review. One of the best I have seen. I am taking a group of 10 on Xperience in March and was hoping to get some insights. I think most of what you said will also apply to XPerience. I had googled and your review came up. Then internet went out and I lost it. You have no idea how long I searched to find your review again. Great job!Chris ~ thanks for the kind comments. I think Xperience may be even more casual is that's possible. You will LOVE it. It's a very special cruise and doing it with a group of 10 will make it even more so. Let me know if you have other questions. ENJOY!
Hi Anne, great review sounds like you and the family had a wonderful cruise!LOIS !!!!! So good to "see" you! It's been way too long. We had a truly wonderful cruise. I wish experiences like this for everyone! I hope you are well!!!!

Everyone wore shorts most of the time on the ship everywhere. In fact, we were lucky enough to dine with the captain one evening and some guys wore shorts that evening, too. That dinner was on the back outside deck, by the way. It is EXTREMELY casual. No need for anything dressy at all. In fact, when we go back, I'll take even less than I did on this trip. ENJOY!
LOIS !!!!! So good to "see" you! It's been way too long. We had a truly wonderful cruise. I wish experiences like this for everyone! I hope you are well!!!!Hi Anne, I am doing ok....recently had surgery but recovering well.....are you and Andy still going on Edge with everyone 1 year from now?
