1) The internet is VERY slow if you can get on at all. There should be a way that they can fix this. 2) I would recommend that if you have your own snorkeling mask, you bring it. The ones that they provide are a 1 size fits all style that doesn't.

This is a small ship in the Pacific. We did rock a lot, but the wave frequency was slow enough it didn't seem to be a problem for seasickness. I am not aware of anyone who had bad seasickness, but plan of bringing an ear patch if you tend to get sick.

The Xpedition never docks in port. You will always get off and on with an inflatable Zodiac boat. Staff are always there to assist you. The Zodiacs add to the adventure of you trip.

Internet was very slow but it was good to unplug for a bit. I used the ships mask and snorkels and they were great but I'm a recreational snorkeler. There is a small ships store on board for a few gift type items and clothing but bring batteries if you need them and plenty of sun screen! nausea meds

The one area most apprciated was housekeeping and food/bar service attention to detail. Three time daily our room was addrssed by houskeeping and maintained well above that whichg was expected. Bar service/attetinon to needs was most pleasant and friendly.

Bring good walking shoes and socks for the hikes. Even though you are on the equator, long sleeve shirts and long pants are very useful for hiking and for your days in Quito before and after. Bring a hat with a chin strap that will not blow off when you are traveling back and forth on the Zodiacs.

Internet is amazing slow but it is free. Do not pre-purchase an internet package for this cruise.

Practice snorkeling and walking before you come. Each day is rigorous and exhilerating. Prepare 1-3 miles over sometimes difficult terrain. Do not expect to use the Internet for anything but slowly getting email. Do not try to meet them in Baltra. Take the whole roundtrip package from Quito

Be cautious of what you eat & drink in Quito...it can make or break your cruise!

If you value great food and a smooth ride, select a different ship.
