Galapagos Legend - Luxury Cruise Ship

The Galapagos Legend, with capacity for 100 guests, was extensively refitted in 2017 to better enhance your Galapagos experience. As well as being the fastest cruise ship operating in the islands, she remains the only vessel with an onboard pool. Fast, sleek and beautifully appointed, she retains a cozy, homely and intimate atmosphere. Her classic, yet contemporary interiors perfectly balance the huge open deck space.
