A Magical Trip to the Galapagos

I was lucky enough to be given this amazing trip by my fantastic boss James Cole, to experience the cruise of a lifetime alongside my lovely colleague Emma Taylor.

Celebrity Cruises made the whole process seamless. When we arrived at our hotel in Quito it was explained to us that we should take it easy with it being our first night in the second highest city in the world.

Exquisite Cuisine on Seven Seas Voyager

"Nothing can elevate travel quite like cuisine."

We really enjoyed our time on board Seven Sea Voyager, especially with the variety of restaurants on offer and overall dining experience. The food was exceptional and mealtimes on the ship were made easy with flexible sitting times and a range of formal and informal restaurants, including dining in your suite which was a firm favourite for myself in the mornings. My butler soon became used to my regular order of Eggs Benedict, followed by the most delicious Brioche French Toast!
