Since 2009, Quasar has been redefining luxury exploration with their unparalleled experiences of the Galápagos aboard the iconic Grace yacht. Excursions harken back to an era of travel as an expression of way of life, and a way of being; when the immersion in wonder and natural beauty was to be an endeavor of ultimate elegance, style, and—well, how else does one say it?

Pure Grace.

In a word, a name, and a vision of intersecting eras, that’s what our princess delivers for her guests on the sapphire water of the Pacific. And now, Quasar has raised the bar on luxury travel to new heights of style and comfort with a brand-new remodel. The award-winning vessel is even better equipped to deliver sophisticated and awe-inspiring cruises throughout the Galápagos Islands.

And she’s already sailing.

The experts behind Quasar Expeditions invite you to explore the yacht’s sleek upgrades, gorgeous decor, and thoughtful touches to enhance guest comfort—we’ll see you aboard!

Elevated Design

Quasar’s crown jewel was re-imagined and reborn through the magic of Chilean interior design firm Enrique Concha & Co. Specializing in atmospheric luxury vessels, their experts and artisans have cloaked the Grace’s custom staterooms with the cozy, contemporary elegance of warm wood and modern furnishings. Like the ever-changing atmosphere of the Galápagos, the Grace’s super-modern lighting seamlessly modulates to match your mood, and the staterooms are fully integrated with the latest technology to make your experience one of modern luxury and classic sensuality.

We’ve also worked to create harmony and freedom of interior design, so your experience within the Grace matches the expanse and majesty of the world you’re traveling through. More space can be enjoyed throughout, especially in her staterooms, maximizing comfort and convenience to help ensure everyone enjoys a luxurious night's rest on the water. The fortunate guests staying in Master Suite A4 also get a new sofa to stretch out on and use as additional sleeping space as it can easily be transformed into an additional bed.

Enhanced Hospitality

Both Quasar and Enrique Concha & Co understand the importance of providing space to mingle and get to know like-minded travelers, reconnect with loved ones, and enjoy those times when you’re looking for privacy and self-reflection too. We placed a premium on creating diverse spaces on board, so you can socialize as well as find a place to enjoy the tranquil solitude of the open water.

We’ve transformed the open environment into an extension of the unique spirit of the destination, blending the expanse of the sea, air, and boundless adventure into the decor of the updated clothing boutique and dining environments.

On the open water, guests will have a full view of the wildlife, such as dolphins, whales, manta rays, and sea lions, whether standing on the rail or relaxing in the newly-renovated coffee lounge. You might even spot rare birds such as the Galápagos’s famed blue-footed boobies and short-eared owls.

And the cuisine you’ll enjoy while you take it all in? Astonishing. Grace’s newly-curated menu elevates on-the-water dining to the heights of gastronomic excellence.

Finally, we know making connections and sharing experiences is part of what inspired your journey on the Grace. That’s why we’ve made it easy to share precious moments with those back home, thanks to the USB ports in staterooms and additional electrical plugs in social areas.

Improved Technical Features

While comfort and an exceptional overall experience are always at the forefront of Quasar cruises, the importance of safety can never be underestimated. With that in mind, safety features were upgraded as well to include state-of-the-art emergency lighting.

New engines and propellers mean less noise and vibrations while minimizing travel time and maximizing time spent experiencing. Making your way through a glistening maze of sea lions on an idyllic swim, floating alongside marine iguanas, and taking part in other experiences that only a relatively lucky few get to enjoy is what traveling with Quasar is all about.

Share in the Excitement of the Relaunch

If you’re ready to experience your own honeymoon of discovery and delight aboard the Grace, you can book one of her eight luxury staterooms today to begin your Galápagos adventure. Quasar has curated three cruise options inspired by Darwin’s adventures: two eight-day voyages and one 15-day trip. Grace is also available for a Galapagos Luxury charter if you’re looking for a truly bespoke, once-in-a-lifetime excursion! You can contact Quasar Expeditions directly for more information.

With revamped layouts that provide more space throughout the ship from staterooms to common areas, perfectly chosen furnishings and decor, a sparkling new boutique, and safety features that not only meet but exceed the strictest standards, we don't think you'll find better.
