My family was on this boat for a week in 2016 with Overseas Adventure Travel (we have always been more than satisfied with the arrangements made by OAT).

It is nice, very comfortable, nothing fancy. The crew was excellent, the food fantastic - never ate so much, so well and still lost a few pounds! Of course, the crew may be quite different and rotates every few weeks.

Given the choice between the smaller boats vs the bigger 100-person boats in Galapagos - I prefer the smaller ones. They can go a few places the bigger ones can't, it's more intimate with your cruise-mates but more than plenty of room to have your privacy/own space/alone time. The bigger boats tend to have "nicer" amenities but also cost more. Ultimately, which you choose depends on what your priorities are and the value proposition you favor. On our trip to Galapagos we chose to put our money into doing more stuff and not into the boat portion; we did not at all suffer from not being on the QEII....
