Santa Cruz II

Metropolitan Touring’s Santa Cruz II will carry 100 passengers around the Galapagos Islands in all-outside accommodations

This week we look at TUI AG and its various cruising arms – the TUI Cruises joint venture with Royal Caribbean Cruises and its wholly owned Hapag-Lloyd Cruises and Thomson Cruises brands. Elsewhere, Quito-based Metropolitan Touring will soon take delivery of the stabilized Santa Cruz II, its most luxurious ship yet. And MSC Cruises has now claimed the number one spot in terms of capacity offered in Europe.
