Looking for an unusual family cruise option? Metropolitan Touring now offers a 50% discount year-round for children under 12 years of age on Galapagos Islands cruises and land packages. The 50% discount applies to all three, four or seven-day itineraries aboard the 90-passenger Santa Cruz and 120-passenger Delfin II. While children under 12 sharing a cabin with parents receive a 50% discount, separate children's rooms are available at a 25% discount. Note that these cruises stress awareness of the environment and provide an educational ecotourism experience, thus not making them appropriate for very young children. Also, while children are welcome to participate in all land exploration, there are no special kids' activities or facilities aboard ship.
