If you want to travel in comfort and discover remote places, you are in the right place on board the MS Galileo. Because of her small size, the ship can navigate through narrow waterways and close to shore and islands that cannot be reached by a large cruise ship. With the MS Galileo hidden bays and small island ports are within reach.
