Galapagos Legend cruises luxury ship in the Islands

The M/V Galapagos Legend : the beauty of small expedition ship cruising

The M/V Galapagos Legend

Our boat the Galapagos Legend was built in Germany and first known as the Baltic Star. After being the star of northern Europe cruises it is bound to become a Legend in the enchanted Isles. 

This beautiful vessel was totally refurbished in Guayaquil by the owners specifically for cruising the Galapagos Islands following very high eco and safety standards. Every detail is oriented to enhancing the nature and wildlife experience of a Galapagos Islands expedition, broad observation decks, outside dining, outdoor swiming pool, auditoriums for lectures, guide research station and other amenities that make the Legend ideal for exploring the enchanted Isles.

By the Christmas of 2001 we set out for our first great natural history expedition on board the M/V Galapagos Legend, the finest and totally refurbished addition to the Islands cruise fleet, the modern 5-star, adventure-style M/V Galapagos Legend, set sail with 90 discriminating explorers, today after a secon facelift by the end of 2004 it carries a maximum of 110 active travellers. The Legend's 3, 4, and 7-night weekly voyages turn Darwin's "living laboratory" into a course in evolution and natural history. With 2,746 GRTs, the Legend offers every amenity of a larger cruise liner, yet she is small enough for that intimate experience with nature that brings you to the Galapagos Islands. This ship has been designed for the most comfortable Galapagos adventure.
 
The luxurious Legend is equipped with five decks, a swimming pool, exercise equipment, a library, 24-hour/pay medical service, international phone/fax/internet service, the most technologically advanced safety system in the archipelago, and much more. Moreover, its 55 cabins all include twin beds, convertible double beds, and private facilities, among other amenities. Furthermore, realizing that the ideal trip to the Galapagos should combine comfort, relaxation, and education, the Legend has one of the Islands' largest and most qualified staff. Among its courteous, professional team of 55 employees are 6 multilingual naturalist guides (each speaking an average of four languages), a concierge, a chef who constantly spoils you with inventive combinations of Ecuadorian and international cuisines, and an M.D. who is always on call.

Onboard the M/V Galapagos Legend you can say goodby to cramped dining, restricted viewing and banging heads on cabin doors.

The Legend is all you would expect from a superbly-run, beautifully-appointed small expedition ship. With her capacity for 100 passengers, 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.

The Galapagos Islands are a once-in-a-lifetime destination, the M/V Galapagos Legend a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
