We got on this cruise initially because it fitted into our schedule and offered all the attractions. How lucky were we! We had an adventure that you dream about. The ship, the crew, the expedition staff and the organisation were all nothing short of excellent. Leaving from Ushuaia the day after our arrival gave us the chance to have a trip to the National Park as well as a look around this little town at the end of the world. Very pretty with plenty of restaurants to eat the local crab delicacy as well as shops for the last minute gear. The cabin was quite roomy with the en-suite bathroom more than adequate for the two of us. Stewards saw to our every need while the food was varied, very tasty and in no short supply. Two expeditions per day was the plan and we made it every day and there were usually options to do Zodiac explorations before landing. Abundant wildlife and stunning scenery was just an everyday event! The expedition Staff were all highly qualified and experienced giving presentations on history, wildlife, geography etc each day we were at sea, Always interesting and informative with no question going unanswered. Very strong health and safety instruction and practice made for a safe holiday especially when zodiac landings were on the agenda. I have no hesitation in recommending this cruise/ship to anyone.

I have not been on a cruise in 20 years so this was a trip of a lifetime for my multigenerational family. We did spend one night in Equador, at the Hotel Colon, prior to our last flight to the islands. It took 1.5 days of travel to get there with lunch and an excursion to an island scheduled for the same day. Unfortunately, 25 of us lost our luggage via American airlines errors, and the sweet people of Lindblad/ Nat. Geo took us to a town to buy some clothing. I mention this because we have a story about not finding much available in Mucho Grande Pantaloons size. The Ecuadorians are a much smaller people than Americans. A size 12 to 14 is a mucho grande. The hotel manager did everything he could to supply us with essentials including laundry for our paultry supplies. They were such gracious people. Although the ship may be small compared to the super cruise liners it was comfortable and charming. We became a small family of explorers. My grandaughters and I had a two room cabin that was nicely size (300.) My daughter and SIL had a much smaller room for 2 (206) Gifts were left in the bathroom for us to use during the trip including a reusable water bottle, loofah etc. Of course the chocolates left on our bed were a nice treat left after beds were set for nite time. There were multiple shore excursions and choice of visits to see the local economy or a school. We chose to visit the school. I wish I had known enough to bring some old children s book and or supplies to the school since anything brought into the country has a high tax rate. Most of the children were learning English as a second language. We were pleased with the food. There were no rich sauces but an array of fresh local vegetables and fruits. All the fish was great and simply cooked. Chicken and fish was also served. Breakfast was a standard buffet. A soup was served with lunch and dinner. We had educational activities several times a day, all were very good and well received. There were special activities for the children including going our on a Zodiac and "learning" how to drive one. Being 70, I thought I'd have trouble getting in and out of the Zodiacs but they are professionals and knew how to assist all of us. They planned an assortments of high and low physical activities every outing. My family learned to snorkel and loved it. I would recommend purchasing an underwater camera. Natural Geographic hooked me up with a photographer who made a recommendation for us. The photos are great memories. Short wet suits were provided since the water can be quite cool due to the Humbolt current from Antarctica. We viewed an assortment of islands, islets and rocks with different flora and fauna. They high points were the wild giant tortoises, penguins and blue footed boobies. Disembarkation was without incident. Getting home was difficult and took 3 days due to American Airlines fouling up. The lovely people from Lindblad and National Geographic stayed with us, getting information, rooms and meals for us. They were wonderful. I can recommend this cruise for those that want adventure, safe travel, well educated multilingual staff and naturalists and wonderful memories. This is not for those that want glamour, dancing, and eating heavy french food. Read Less

We wanted to experience the beauty of the flora and fauna in the Galapagos. Always wanted to see a blue footed booby. The experience was unbelievable. Each day we would be at a different island. Each island had different characteristics. The beauty of the animals in their own habitats was a memory I will never forget. Our guide was a biologist and had the experience of being a guide to National Geographic photographers. He guided us with patience, pride and vast amount of information regarding each living thing in the Galapagos. He spoke of how the stability of the environment in one area of the world made a difference in the Galapagos and its future. The boat and staff itself were wonderful. The gourmet level of healthy food was once of the best we ever had. I would highly recommend this ship and also the Galapagos Legend as well. The nights on the ship were quiet, serene. Their were several honeymooners on the ship and one family with children the ages about 10 years old. Mostly it was middle aged couples. Read Less
