M/V Galapagos Legend

General Description
galapagos legend cruise

M/V Galapagos Legend is Luxury expedition ship, built in Germany, totally rebuilt in 2002. Designed specifically for cruising the Galapagos Islands, the Galapagos Legend offers all the amenities of a larger cruise liner yet still has the intimate feel of family-style cruising. This 300-foot Galapagos cruise ship provides all the facilities and services to make your cruise around the islands enjoyable and comfortable. The Galapagos Legend has a capacity for 100 passengers and all the services of a cruise liner while remaining small enough for that intimate experience with nature that first attracted you to the Galapagos Islands. Its fully carpeted luxurious cabins have ocean views, closets, their own private bathrooms, hot and cold water, hair dryers, safe deposit boxes and other amenities. The Legend is all you would expect from a superbly-run, beautifully-appointed small expedition ship, she offers that extra level of comfort that comes from a larger, more stable yacht, as well a more varied group of friends to make during your cruise - but we don´t lose the intimate feel of the Galapagos - unique one-on-one encounters with some of the world´s most amazing and friendly wildlife.
Our quality control process means we´re constantly striving to improve every detail, whether cabins, service, special needs, or even cocktails.

Every guide on board the Galapagos Legend has gone through heavy training at the Darwin station and has years of experience working with the nature and wildlife of the Islands. Your naturalist leader will point out the different species of plants and animals you find along the trails.galapagos legend suite
