Family Expedition Cruises in the Galápagos Islands

During a 9-day, 8-night expedition onboard the Galápagos Legend, travelers will explore the islands of the Galápagos Islands. 

"With five new sailings that are led by naturalists, adventurers will discover the archipelago’s spectacular vistas and remarkable diversity of plant and animal species," Disney Parks Blog reports. 

Imagine yourself snorkeling in clear waters inhabited by sea lions, reef fish and sea turtles or taking a hike across the islands’ terrain. 

Guests who want to add even more fun to their Galapagos Islands vacation can spend 3 to 4 nights on the Anakonda riverboat exploring the Amazon rainforest. 

According to Disney Parks Blog, "guests will traverse the Napo River by motorized canoe in search of the elusive pink river dolphin and enjoy a guided nocturnal rainforest walk to witness animals that would go unseen during daylight among other adventures."
