Anyone familiar with escorted tours on the following boats?

My husband and I are debating a trip to the Galapagos and we have been given the choice of the following boats: Galapagos Vision II, Fragata Yacht, and Goladrina Yacht Tourist . Have has anyone taken a trip on these? How were the accomodations, food and knowledge of the naturalist?

There's a very recent thread offering mixed reviews for the Fragata, as well as a number of earlier ones--use the Search function to find them. The Goladrina doesn't have any reviews on TA, at least that I could find. But if you enter Vision II into the Search box, you'll find a few reviews on that boat.

Dear Detrout,

these are economy class ships. Many people come back thrilled after a cruise on these ships - but make sure your expectations are in line with what these ships have to offer.

Warmest regards,

As Heather notes it´s important to be aware of the standard of this class of ship and what they offer. I´d say the Fragata falls in the highest range of the three options you provided.

Good luck with your research.
