Big, fast, comfortable ship

The Legend is a fast ship, so you can get to multiple locations in one day. They have everything organized well to maximize your time off the ship and hiking on islands or snorkeling. We took the 'West' itinerary and saw huge diversity of animals both on land and in the ocean - 100's of iguanas sunning themselves, 100's of sea lions swimming among the group, land and sea turtles, penguins, boobies, flamingos, sharks, rays, countless birds and fish.
