5 day cruise 7 day cruise

My wife and I are planning a trip to the Galapagos Islands in January 2015( live in Chicago) . Our travel agent suggested a 5 day cruise with 3 nights in quito 2 upon arrival and 1 leaving, the cruise ship is the Isabella 2. However, after reading some of the trips my question, Is the 5d/4n cruise long enough? Anyone have experience on this particular cruise ship?

Dear Art -

it all depends on your motivations for visiting the islands. If this has been a lifelong dream, you will be sorely disappointed in a short cruise. If you just want to get a general idea of what the hoopla is about, you will be OK. Be aware that a 5 day cruise is really only 3 days - the first and last consisting of very short days, as you embark usually after noon, and disembark usually before 9AM.

You may want to do a bit more background research before taking your travel agent's advice. There is plenty in TA right here (see TOP QUESTIONS on the upper right).

In the end, it's a bit like asking if 5 days in Paris is better than 7. It depends on the degree of interest, your budget and available time.

Warmest regards,

Heather Blenkiron
