A Dream Trip to the Galapagos Islands

A Dream Trip to the Galapagos Islands

The Galapagos Islands are composed of 120 volcanic islands. Their extreme isolation has led to some pretty interesting animal species, and Charles Darwin’s theory of evolution. Shore Excursion Manager Judy Hu dreamed of visiting the island for years. That dream became reality when she led the Galapagos Overland Adventure shore excursion during a 2012 South America Grand Voyage.

The reason for me to join the cruise industry was to see the Galapagos Islands. My wish came true 20 years later. I’ve worked for Holland America Line since 1998. I love my job!

    Hi Judy,
    Glad you finally got there. Galapagos is still on my list. Angkor Wat was like that for me. Hope all is well withyou, long time no see.

    Does HA have any cruises to the Galapagos? If so, when do they sail and from what ports?

    Thanks,

    Dave

    Me and my husband have been on several of your cruises and would love to go to the Galapagos. Are there are trips in 2018 or 2019? I did see the South America cruises but I did not see any mention of the Galapagos.

    Thank you!
