galapagos cruises - difference between these 3 ships????

Jump to last reply

Planning on going to the Galapagos over the next 6 months....Have read Nat Geo islander is very good as well as staff...wanting to know is A & K Eclipse ( read rooms were bigger) and Tauck Isabella 2 ( they only contract with Isbella they don't own the ship)
I hope someone has been on at least 2 of these ships to compare. All staff is from Ecuador and food all the same I am guessing...what's the reason to pay more thru A & K and Tauck or even National Geo? All the ships hold 48 and go out in small regulated groups each day. Is one really better than the other????????
