Join the iconic voyage leg sailing to the Galapagos. Scan the horizon for the dramatic islands to appear in the sea mists, then explore the dramatic volcanic isles that captivated Charles Darwin. Several days are planned to include sailing trips around the islands and land visits to key wildlife sites as weather and circumstances allow.
