Legend of the Seas

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Legend of the Seas | Sail Date: May 14, 2015

Cruise could have been better. There were a limited number of activities, and the entertainment was okay at best. Our first cruise was on the Oasis of the Seas, which set a precedent. This ship was definitely not to be compared to the Oasis, which I am sure plays a major role in our disappointment. My husband and I have agreed that we will never sail on the Legend of the Seas again.

Island Hopper cruise

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Legend of the Seas | Sail Date: May 14, 2015

Cruise was fantastic.  Getting there was another story.  Never again will I take a cruise where I fly into San Diego and have to bus to Ensenada, Mexico. Something that should haven taken no more than 3 hours took over 5 hours.  3 hours just sitting at the border.  Then the bus driver got lost getting to the port   Oh well.

Once on the ship everything was fabulous.

Grest service, average buffet, expensive wifi, poor handicaped planning.

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Legend of the Seas | Sail Date: Apr 29, 2015

Very nice cruise but a couple of concerns. My wife was blind but we were placed in the far back of the  and dining room which made it dificult to get to the table every night. The free venue choises between meal times were non-existent and the the buffet menu was a bit repetitive. The service was outstanding in all respects. The Internet wifi service was very high priced.

My cruise

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Legend of the Seas | Sail Date: Apr 29, 2015

I must say the crew was excellent and the food was wonderful. The ship itself was a bit of a rust bucket and in need of a good shipyard repair period. Overall it was a great experience and we are planning our next cruise with Royal Caribbean.

This cruise was every bit as good as our last with Royal Caribbean.

Panama Canal Cruise Experience

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Legend of the Seas | Sail Date: Apr 14, 2015

This cruise had a wonderful itinerary with two stops in Mexico, one stop each in Guatamala, Costa Rica, Panama, and Columbia.

The cruise line offered lectures to familiarize us with each country before we went there which was very helpful.

It took over eight hours to navigate the Panama Canal, so we had plenty of opportunity to see the canal in operation.  This was a unique experience and since they will soon open the new locks, may be one of the last chances to see this historic landmark of engineering.

Royal Caribbean's staff was always attentive and the only drawback was the unfortunate necessity of mandatory hand sanitation due to disease brought onboard the vessel on the previous voyage.  There were additional occurrences during our trip, but after 13 days on board, we were finally cleared with no new cases of gastro-intestinal virus.

We had a terrible check-in process due to both the delay for sanitation and apparently a brand new computer system on which the agents had not been fully trained.  We waited in line for over 3 hours and then another hour before we could board the boat.  That was a very difficult experience for both myself and my 83 year old aunt.  There was no way to rest or get off your feet while waiting in that long, hot, winding line at the San Diego cruiseport.

After we got onboard. We were able to rest, but not eat in the dining room because most passengers were required to use "My Time Dining."  The line to make reservations was just too much after all that wait at the port.  We waited in that line only to find the earliest dining time available was after 7:30 PM.  Since we did not get lunch (we had expected to check in and visit the Windjammer after getting on the ship) that was much too late.

These issues should have been anticipated and could have been eased a little by better management of the check-in process.

Legend of the Seas Cruise through Panama Canal

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Legend of the Seas | Sail Date: Apr 14, 2015

The Panama Canal cruise was on my bucket list. I would not have picked such a long cruise otherwise. For those who love to cruise, this was a wonderful experience. I liked being on a smaller ship with an older crowd. The Solarium was such a nice, quite place to spend time while at sea. The outdoor movie screen in front of the pool was wonderful. We would usually watch the late showing of the movies, so sitting outdoors under the stars with a beautiful warm breeze was so relaxing and enjoyable. The cabin crew, waiters, etc., were exceptional. Everyone was friendly, courteous, and always ready to go above and beyond. The only negative for me was the very, very small bathrooms.

A New World to Explore

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Legend of the Seas | Sail Date: Apr 14, 2015

The Legend cruise was quite an experience. There were many activities and our cruise director ,Keith Williams,was a very exciting and energetic character who always made you feel special.

The food was gourmet and very delicious.

Please be aware that the ship started off with the scare of the norovirus, but with the cooperation of the staff and passengers, we were soon clear of the issue.Love

A once in a lifetime cruise

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Legend of the Seas | Sail Date: Apr 14, 2015

The Panama canal was a great engineering feat. That was the best part of the cruise. Some of the ports were not the best stops.  This cruise also is for the OLD  Crowd so if you are younger than 55, this is not the cruise for you.

The shows were good but again for the older crowd.  The food in the main dining room for dinner could have been upgraded on formal nights, the only formal night that had better choices was the last formal night.

My Cruise Experience

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Legend of the Seas | Sail Date: Apr 14, 2015

I was very dissatisfied with the embarkation process. The cruise terminal was very hot and with so many bodies in the terminal, it was miserable. There seemed not to be enough staff to get us through the sign in process to embark in a reasonable amount of time. Since there had been an incident of gastrointestinal illnesses on the previous cruse the ship had to be thoroughly cleaned. So we had to sit in the hot cruise terminal for a while until we were directed to a hot tent where we had to sit for approximately five hours. We had been told that we would have to wait to embark, but the facilities were miserable. I was later told by cruisers who were 'diamonds' with this line that they did not have to sit in the hot tent so long and were allowed to embark right away as soon as the ship could be boarded. It made me feel like an outsider. We had been given a pack of crackers, a pack of cookies and a bottle of room temperature water. I asked for two bottles, but when I got to the tent, another traveler was asking if he could go inside to get another bottle of water. He was told that he could not go back for water, so I gave him one of the bottles that I had.

We were given a number and had to sit until our number was called. We sat in the hot tent so long that my traveling companion who is diabetic got sick. I told the person who was coordinating the embarkation process, that we needed food because my companion was sick and was starting to sweat and shake. He called to someone on the ship and told them about the problem and then told me that we had to wait longer. He offered more water and cookies and crackers, but I told him that this was unacceptable; we needed food. He called again and we were finally allowed to embark.

We went to the dining area that was open at the time to only be met with food being put up. I explained to the workers that we need food because my companion was diabetic and needed to eat. They would not give him anything. Only after I asked for a manager and he came were we allowed to get food. We were allowed to embark so late that we were being called to go to the muster stations to go to learn about the life vests and the location of our muster station.

Our stateroom was very nice, but uncomfortably hot. We had the thermostat turned down so that it would get cool, but it did not get very cool. We finally told our stateroom stewardess about the temperature on the fourteenth day of our cruise, She told us that we should have told her sooner. She called maintenance from our stateroom and told us that the person that she talked to told us that they could not do anything because we were at sea. We decided to call maintenance ourselves later that night. Someone came and checked and saw that it was so hot in the room. He in turn sent a maintenance technician who removed the vent covers and had the problem fixed in less than ten minutes.

All of the workers on the ship were very friendly. There was more than enough to keep one entertained. There was a rock climbing wall, mini golf, table tennis, and a track to name a few.

The food was alright, but there were so many starches and meats being offered and not enough vegetables. There was salad that one could chose which helped make up for the lack of many vegetables. I did not go to the dining room to eat because I wanted to relax and not have to dress up to eat dinner. There was an area that offered lighter selections that was open for breakfast and closed at 6 pm. It offered salads and sandwiches and yogurt, cookies, a few pastries.

The ports of call were quite interesting, especially the Panama Canal transport. Going through the Panama Canal was like seeing history jump right off the pages of a history book. Going through the locks and seeing the ship rise to the different levels was so special. That was the best part of the cruise for me.

We had a small fridge in the room, so I took a salad and a yogurt for a late night snack from the restaurant that offered the lighter fare. That way I did not have to be confined to only what room service offered and did not have to pay a late night room service fee.

Check out the Park Cafe in the solarium for a great salad, sandwich or late night snack.

The various musicians on this ship were great. I enjoyed just sitting an listening to them. We went to the Schooner Bar each evening and it was very enjoyable.
