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!
