Galápagos Legend is a good value, family-friendly cruise ship which owing to its relatively large size is particularly stable and offers many activities and entertainment.
The Legend is a classic expedition cruise ship offering comfortable and spacious travel for its 100 passengers. Distributed over four decks are five different classes of accommodation ranging from superior cabins (most with porthole) to large, bright suites offering good ocean views from their generous picture windows.
There is an inside restaurant, bar/lounge, lecture room and small outside pool with bar. The onboard naturalist guides are informed, educational and passionate about sharing the islands with their guests, but there are also some features of more traditional cruising, such as folkloric shows, quizzes and so on.
Snorkelling equipment is available, but the vessel also carries a glass bottom boat, allowing passengers to get a glimpse of the underwater world, without needing to be immersed in it. The large amount of space onboard, along with initiatives such as ‘Science Corner’ and the ‘Movie Room’ make the Legend a great choice for families.
