The only place I could find to put my review of our July cruise was on the TA entry of our intermediary, Rainforest Cruises, who are based in Miami. I don't think that's where many people interested in this particular cruise will look! So I thought I'd link to it here: https://www.tripadvisor.com/Attraction_Review-g34439-d15606848-Reviews-Rainforest_Cruises-Miami_Beach_Florida.html
The text that refers to the Galapagos Legend specifically reads like this:
Our arrival was rather fraught, as the sea was extremely choppy and we had to get a Zodiac from the airport island to the ship moored some way away in the bay. Frankly, it was a nightmare, especially for my husband [who walks with a stick and is quite frail] . We grew to hate those Zodiacs! We both got better at getting in and out, and it was never as choppy again, but I did get fed up with getting drenched from spray each outing.
We had booked the Galapagos Legend, with capacity for 100 passengers – far bigger than most. We did this expressly in the hope that (a) my husband wouldn’t feel he was holding back the same set of people all the time, and (b) we could choose to do the least strenuous of the choice of visits. In fact, we were assigned to the same group of 16 throughout, and there was just one choice: go, and keep up with the group, or stay on the boat. Not so ideal! We were also assigned a particular dining table. These arrangements were presumably to simplify things for them, but they really didn’t suit us well. We felt a little “herded” throughout as there was a mass-tourism feel to it. However, the crew were all very good and the boat’s facilities were fine. As on our other cruise, all toiletries, gowns and drinking bottles were supplied, along with snorkelling equipment and a carrying pouch each. Bring something to personalise your things as all objects taken in the Zodiac get collected then handed back after boarding.
There were 3-4 trips from the boat most days. Mornings were a trek and then sometimes beach snorkelling time. In the afternoon there was often another trek or a slow Zodiac ride along the cliffs, plus a choice of glass-bottom boat ride, kayaking, or snorkelling off the Zodiac. The schedule was really hectic and we barely saw the inside of our cabin. What with briefings, collecting snorkelling kit, donning life vests, getting feet showered off on return… we felt quite rushed most of the time, with constant announcements all day. The bar wasn’t the place to relax in the evening, as there was a quiz, a photo competition, and a dressing-up play put on.
We saw absolutely nothing of the local human population, apart from the guides, which was disappointing. But I’m sure the flora and fauna of the Galapagos never disappoint. We were certainly wowed by seeing so many turtles and giant tortoises, sea-lions, iguanas, penguins, pelicans and everything else – and so close up that I nearly stepped on animals several times!
Hope the review is helpful to some here.
