The Galapagos Sea Star Journey has a capacity of up to 16 passengers, featuring seven spacious Galapagos Suites – Matrimonial (approx. 25,2 m) and one Sea Star Suite (approx. 35,2 m) equipped with panoramic windows to enjoy the wonderful landscapes of the islands. These come with a private bathroom, hot/cold water and air conditioning (with independent controls). Twin beds (or one faux queen bed) and connected suites are available for families.
The Galapagos Sea Star Suite is located on the Upper Deck. This cabin is like having your own apartment on the Galapagos Islands with a King size bed. Some of the cabin´s features are large and panoramic view windows, a large sitting area with desk, a comfortable sofa bed for triple accommodation, perfect for children, and a beautiful private bathroom
The main deck twin suites on the main deck have a balcony, and the others on the upper deck are interconnected, so they are ideals for families.

Sea Star Journey itineraries explained
Regarding itineraries, the Sea Star Journey offers three itineraries:
6-Day A Itinerary
The 6-day A itinerary will have you visit 2 of my favorite and most sought after islands in the the archipelago – Española and Floreana. In Española you will be able to swim with sealions, hang out with blue-footed boobies and see how the enormous Galapagos Albatross takes off. Truly a great itinerary!
5-Day B Itinerary
This shorter 5-day itinerary will take you north to the wonderful island of Genovesa also known as ¨bird island¨. You will also visit Bartholomew Island where you will be able to spot penguins and take the quintessential Galapagos pic with Pinnacle rock in the background. On top of all these fantastic visitor sites you will visit Santiago Island great for wildlife and snorkeling.
6-Day C Itinerary
The 6-Day C Itinerary of the Sea Star Journey is a perfect itinerary. You get to visit the sought after and renowned Western Islands in style. Usually Galapagos cruises visit the Western Islands on 8-day itineraries. Highly recommended Galapagos itinerary!
