M/V Legend: Galapagos Cruise

This Galapagos vessel features a 100-guest capacity, yet still strives to provide an intimate experience with friends and family.

Guests of M/V Legend can enjoy the Galapagos in total comfort, choosing from a wide selection of itineraries, ranging in length from 3 to 14 nights.

Legend’s open decks allow passengers to admire the Galapagos flora & fauna, enjoy a BBQ at night while stargazing from the Moon Deck, and spend the days sun bathing at the pool, the two jetted tubs, and the bar area.

As part of its January 2019 renovation, the Legend added a wellness center, fitness room, and a space for yoga classes.
