I did some research on this question and it looks pretty hard to combine the trip into one cruise itinerary, particularly without doing any flying. Seabourn Cruises offers an itinerary that goes from Montreal (or Fort Lauderdale) to Valparaiso, Chile; Regent Cruises has a similar itinerary from Miami, finishing in Lima, Peru. Both include stops in Guayaquil, Ecuador, the port from where most Galapagos cruises depart. Problem I foresee, however, is whether you can leave a cruise midway through; also, you have to figure out a way to get home once you're down in South America. Most cruisers will continue on overland tours and/or fly home. Perhaps you can overland through South American countries like Ecuador, Peru, and Venezuela and make your way home on another cruise from the Caribbean side? Expensive, no doubt, but maybe doable. Either way, hope you have a great trip. I'd suggest you call the cruise lines above and see if they have any specific advice on getting over to the Galapagos.
