The Motor Vessel Galápagos Legend is a superb, 300 feet long, purpose built luxury expedition vessel. Offering the very best in boutique adventure cruises, your journey will bring you all the amenities you would expect from a luxury cruise liner, and yet affords an intimate and personal glimpse into the stunning wildlife and habitats of the Islands.

Superb facilities Built in 2001 and fully refurbished to an exceptional standard in 2017, Legend boasts amongst the best facilities available on any vessel in the archipelago. With 5 decks of accommodation and communal space, yet a maximum of only 100 passengers Galápagos Legend provides room for you to relax and contemplate the sights and sounds of the Islands.

Onboard facilities include a superb restaurant, beautifully appointed lounge, inside and outside bars, and uniquely a choice of sun, observation and star gazing decks. There’s also a swimming pool. If you need to burn a little more energy then the ship has a well-equipped gym. For those who prefer something less strenuous you can lie back in a hammock, relax in the special open lounge, watch for passing dolphins or soak your cares away in the jacuzzi.

Accommodation to suit everyone There are 57 cabins, with a variety of specifications to suit every requirement, however all are fully air conditioned with private en suite bathroom with hot water, and feature TVs and telephones for internal and international calling.

The feature accommodation is the Legend Balcony Suite on the Moon deck. Featuring over 43 square metres of space, with a private balcony, a mini fridge and complimentary champagne. It can be configured as a twin or double and can take an additional bed if needed.

There are a further 16 balcony suites with between 21 and 28sqm of space, 8 on Moon deck and 8 on Sky deck. All have a mini fridge with complimentary champagne and a private balcony. All can take an extra bed for triple occupancy.

There are 28 junior suites, all on Earth deck and with between 12 and 21sqm of space, each with panoramic windows. There are twins and doubles, and all can take an extra bed. 4 of the junior suites can be made into quadruples - ideal for families or group travelling together.

There are a further 7 Standard Plus cabins, 5 on Sea deck and 2 on Earth deck, all featuring skylights and 10 or 11 sqm of space. They can be configured as twins or doubles. Finally there are 3 Standard interior cabins of 11, 12 and 16 sqm respectively, all on Earth deck. The largest can take an extra bed for triple occupancy.

Family friendly Ideal for families because of its flexible cabin options, Galápagos Legend features a children’s corner with games and activities, and plenty of open spaces and areas to explore. Adults will appreciate the on board boutique, well-stocked library and 24 hour coffee centre! Perfect for non-swimmers or those who don’t wish to snorkel, Galápagos Legend boasts one of the few ship-carried glass-bottomed pangas (motorised dinghies) in the Islands, meaning everyone gets to marvel at the underwater habit.

Service standards are excellent, with 80 plus crew and a maximum of 100 passengers. Qualified bilingual naturalist guides take only small groups on excursions, meaning everyone gets chance to ask questions and get up-close experiences. Quality of the food on board is frequently highlighted by guests as extremely good. New features include digital entertainment systems and massage chairs for extreme decadence!

Our comment Despite her larger size and extra amenities, Galápagos Legend manages to retain an intimate and personal feel. The space means nowhere ever feels crowded and we like the additional thoughtful features like a pool, a gym and kids’ area. We LOVE the hammocks! Ideal for families or group travel, yet just as applicable to couples we think the Galápagos Legend has so much to offer - including a superb deck to lie back and star gaze. Oh, did we mention the hammocks?

Cruise fuel surcharge: US$ 50 for 3 or 4 night cruises, US$ 100 for 7 nights.

Sustainability on board the Legend

At Galapatours we love and respect the pristine ecosystems and fascinating wildlife of the Galápagos Islands, and we insist that our cruise partners do too. To protect the archipelago all our cruise vessels must have sophisticated water filtration systems, modern efficient engines, and strict maintenance schedules to minimize pollution.

The Galápagos National Park authority also defines exact cruising routes that dictate which ships can visit highlights at specific times, as well as limiting passenger numbers. These measures ensure that animals and habitats are not disturbed by too many visitors.

But at Galapatours we like to go even further. We voluntarily offset all the CO2 emissions of every cruise we sell - at no cost to you. And you can also play your part by traveling responsibly and following our Eco Guidelines during your stay.

Food & Drinks on board the Legend

The food on our Galapágos Cruises is among the very best you will find in South America. Most of the on-board chefs are internationally trained and have prior experience working in the best hotels and restaurants in Ecuador and indeed around the world.

You can expect a first-class selection of food, including a good variety of fresh fruits and vegetables, locally sourced poultry and fish/seafood, rice and pasta dishes. Most boats will always include some typical Ecuadorian dishes on the menu during your cruise. If you have specific dietary requirements then these can usually be accommodated by the chef providing you have given advance notice. Please make sure you tell us about any allergies or dietary requirements you have at the time you book with us. If you leave it until you arrive at the dockside, then it may well be impossible to accommodate your needs.

Most boats serve a range of options at meal times in a relaxed buffet-style. At the first class and luxury end of the market, some boats have more formal dining where you will be served at your seat. However the atmosphere is always relaxed on board our cruises, and never stuffy or formal.
