Has anyone been on the Athala or Nina run by Haugan Cruises?

I note they have a 15 day cruise now. Is this too long to spend in the Galapagos?

Thankx for any responses.

Cheers

Sorry, was not on the Isabella. Went with Celebrity's Xpedition. Animals you will see:
Sea lions, lots
Sally lightfoot crabs, lots
Marine iguanas, lots
Birds: bluefooted boobies, pelicans, frigate birds, sea gulls, brown noddies, flightless cormorants, herons, finches, mocking birds, yellow warblers
Giant land tortoises
land iguanas, not many

We also saw and I don't know whether it's normal or rare: sea turtles, dolphins, flamingos

Snorkelers saw fish, of course.
