Similar Yachts to the Galapagos Legend

The Legend is one of the best values in Galapagos cruise ships, so for those on a budget that prefer a larger boat, the Legend may be your best choice. If you'd like a more upscale ship, then take a look at the new, luxurious Santa Cruz II, or the classic Silver Galapagos. The Santa Cruz is renowned for its excellent guides, and La Pinta offers a smaller ship that holds a maximum of 48 passengers for those wanting a smaller ship with a more intimate feel.
