What is the difference between MV Theory & The MV Origin
With the arrival of the new & luxurious MY Theory to the Galapagos, the sister ship to the MV Origin, many of our clients are interested to know how these Galapagos Luxury Holiday Cruise boats differ. Johnny, our Galapagos Guru, has been lucky enough to have experienced both ships and he gives you the inside track on both of these luxury Galapagos holiday boats.
The similarities are that both are extremely luxurious with Relais & Chateau status, meaning a high level of service and great food is guaranteed. Both the MV Theory and the MV Origin are the most luxurious medium sized boats that cruise the Galapagos Islands that cost $7850 per person for a week cruising. The sizes of the ten staterooms are identical with large panoramic windows, en suites, coffee making machines, televisions, apple docs and a very comfortable spec.
Both boats are full board with an open bar policy (not the norm for Galapagos). They also both boast the best guide/passenger ratio as every ten passengers has a guide (the Galapagos Park rule is that every 16 passengers requires a guide).
They operate on the same itinerary that takes in the highlights of the islands departing from San Cristobal on a 7 night/8 day cruise.
The main differences between the MV Theory & The MV Origin
The MV Theory was launched in March 2019 and has a slightly different layout and décor to the MV Theory. The jacuzzi on the MV Theory is on the upper sun deck along with sun loungers, on the Origin is on the back of the boat near the loading area. A good idea as you can refresh in the jacuzzi after taking in some of the rays. The dining area on the MV Theory is slightly smaller than on the MV Theory, but still spacious enough. By doing this it creates a larger indoor sitting area for lectures and evening relaxation on the MV Theory.
The décor on the MV Theory are light woods, lights blues, greys and a neutral unoffensive décor. Similar in décor to the MV Origin, but the MV Origin is uses more greys and lights yellows. Both are very hard to say which is more beautiful. Both are classically and designed to create spacious and comfortable areas with large windows are observation areas to enjoy the first-class locations that you are in-The Galapagos Islands.
