Just the word “Grace” conjures elegance, distinction and beauty as exemplified by Grace Kelly, Princess of Monaco. Today you can relive some of the royal majesty of those by-gone days aboard the newly restored 145-foot motor yacht Grace.   Originally gifted to Prince Rainier and Grace Kelly as a wedding gift by billionaire Aristotle Onassis, the storied vessel hosted the Prince and Princess on their extended honeymoon journey in 1956, and later served as a hospital ship in World War II.  Although the vessel has had many owners and names, it has never looked more regal and sleek as it does today.

Following a multi-million dollar, 20-month refurbishment, ‘Grace’ has begun to welcome guests for eight day expedition voyages through the Galapagos Islands.  Cruising aboard Grace, evokes the spirit of early expeditions to these ecologically unique islands.  This vessel is able to explore areas that are inpassable by larger boats, giving the fortunate passengers an exciting yet elegant experience. With just 9 spacious stateroom cabins, the 18 guests are pampered by 10 crew members and 2 naturalist guides.  Pricing for the cruise ranges from $4,500 to $5,300 per person, (not including airfare) which is well in line with other expedition cruiseships in the area.  Visit Galapagos Expeditions to read all the details of this once-in-a lifetime cruise experience.
