Ports of call amazing. Customer service horrible

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Legend of the Seas | Sail Date: Mar 09, 2015

My wife and I had been in several cruises with Carnival, before traveling with Royal Caribbean.  The ports of call were amazing- Aruba, barbados, Bonaire, St. Lucia, Antigua, Grenada.  We had an excursion at every port.  We had one excursion that was bad, and it was in Bonaire- 4x4 expenditure to see the flamingos, slave huts, salt mill, and beach.  The beaches were disappointing-, the route we took was trashy and bad- it seemed like the guide did not care- the overall experience was not pleasant.  Once back on the ship- I complained to the shore excursion desk requesting money back or onboard credit-  the clerk was very rude and said she had taken the same excursion couple weeks prior and it was good for her- I was surprised- I complained her manager- they ended up giving us 20% off the excursion as an "act of faith"-  

The food service in the dining hall was decent-  food was hit or miss- either good or bad- nothing in the middle.  At dinner time, when I asked about the sliders, since everything on the menu looked like crap, the waiter said it was a plain burger.  When I asked about adding cheese and bacon, he said no.-seriously.

The shopping was overpriced- mostly junk.

The clerk at the entrance of the main dining hall was an A**, because we showed up 30 min. late, due to a spa treatment that ran over.

The photo clerk was an idiot-  They wanted to charge us the price for an 8x10 for a 6x8 because some of the photos came only in an 8x10.  When asked to speak with a manager, the clerk said the manner would tell us the same thing about the price-  just a big hassle.

The entertainment was horrible-  all based on 50-70's music/shows.  the comedy was par.  Nothing really to do on the ship.  

The outdoor pools were cool not warm.

the hot tubs were luke warm not hot, like a tub should be.

The beds were a single mattress on a cot.- seriously.

bathrooms were extremely small.

fitness center and spa were a joke.

Chops grill and the sushi restaurant were amazing- only complaint was the added price of $18 for a Porterhouse streak.

Legends of the Sea is a very small ship.

Our overall experience on the ship and with Royal was bad- will not travel with Royal again.

Enjoyed by all

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Legend of the Seas | Sail Date: Feb 27, 2015

I went with a group of 10 people.  We had a great time.  Our waiter and assistant were fabulous.  They were so personable and willing to get anything we wanted.  My room steward was also outstanding.  The room was cleaned promptly and was always in good condition..

RC -- FLL - 10 day- Feb 6-16

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Legend of the Seas | Sail Date: Feb 06, 2015

I have cruised for 20 years and have done about 19.  I have never chosen a cruise because of the BRAND... I have cruised RCL, HA, Norwegian, Disney, Carnival...

This was my MOST Disappointing Cruise!!!  in 20 years

Food-- only OK

Wayfarer== too much sameness

Park- too limited

Room service.. most limited in  all my experiences

Little thing-- chocolates at night.. I am not a chocoholic, but I thought is was a nice touch.. My sister did a "comment sheet".. which I chose not to do.... they called her and told her that Another Cruise Ship had  "cross contamination" with chocolates ????????????? and they were no longer doing it.. WEAK

The safe "required you use 1 or 2  credit cards" rather than a 4 digit entry.. which meant the advantage of the safe was limited... You could not lock your credit card..... My sister had listed that on her form... they called and said they were switching to more 4 digit safes... NOT  on the last night.. friends from the Diamond Plus.. told us the room key worked...alas it die... Why the H--- didn't you tell us?????????

 

10 days of COLD showers were unacceptable... the sink was hot

Prune juice... I ordered it the first day from room service and did not get it.. I talked to a manager in Wayfarer... he said they NO LONGER served it because folks drank too much and said they had Norovirus....... Ho ho.. for the rest of the cruise I got it in the dining room and room service?????????

Charging 5% to get cash is a NEW TWIST.. not one I like

3 napkin folding and one towel folding sessions... with no charge... WEAK  WEAK

On board experiences were limited without $$$$

Sewer gas on our floor the entire cruise.. NOT our cabin

Entertainment weak

We had such a good time!

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Legend of the Seas | Sail Date: Jan 26, 2015

Legend of the Seas is one of RCL's smaller ships. The entertainment on board was just right...we enjoyed 3 production shows in the theater as well as aerial acrobatics in the Centrum on two different nights. A smaller ship meant that the elevators were not usually full, and it was nice to be able to explore the ship easily. The food was excellent and the crew is one of the best there is. We were very pleased with attention and customer service.

One of the best things was the itinerary....11 nights with 2 days at sea to start with and 2 days at sea at the end made for a nice relaxing vacation.

11 Night Southern Caribbean w/ Legends & 6 ports was awesome

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Legend of the Seas | Sail Date: Jan 05, 2015

The ship and staff were great as well as the food.  It was great to see 6 different ports of call with a variety of differences.  We had some rough seas and a couple days of rain but in all had a great time.  The biggest downside was perhaps the lack of details and logistics on shore excursions plus the local drivers at some made you hang on for dear life.  Wouldn't hesitate on selecting the cruise line or agent again.

Awonderful cruise on a small but friendly ship

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Legend of the Seas | Sail Date: Jan 05, 2015

This was a beautiful cruise.  For the most part the ports are great excepting Antigua where you had to walk through a huge gauntlet of people trying to sell "shore excursions to you."  The Legend is a small ship.  We opted for an inside room and it was tiny.  In general the crew was friendly and helpful.  The perks for Diamond cruisers were wonderful and made it worthwhile to sail on RCCL. The ship is clean and Solarium a nice place to relax in I would recommend this cruise to anyone who enjoys a long vacation with plenty of ports. Marjorie Potter

Worst cruise out of 34 cruises

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Legend of the Seas | Sail Date: Nov 30, 2014

Where do I begin?

Oh--I know---how about 1 1/2 hours to check in at embarkation.  Faucet in bathroom sink had no pressure. When the filter and washer were removed, out poured filthy, oily black sentiment.  Ugh!  The table for 2, which was requested at booking in April, turned out to be table for 12!  After 3 nights of stress, embarrassment and anger, they somehow found a table for 2.  Sunday and Monday night football---no signal on t.v.  Thursday night, we had football, but the trade off was no CNN---no news ATM was not working (this was not a Royal Caribbean responsibility and not fixable)  What else could go wrong??  I soon got my answer!  So now it's a day at sea and we hear "Bravo, bravo, bravo".  That's the call for fire, right?  An officer is running past us on Deck 10, rushes to a box which contained a hose, keys it and activates the water!!  When I opened the door to the hallway, I saw smoke pouring out of the light fixtures!!  I yelled at the woman in the children's game area that there was smoke, and she frantically waved her arms at me and said, "Go! Go!  We're evacuating this area"  Sure enough, we were barred from the entire end of the ship. After 45 minutes the Captain came on the loud speaker and said there was a welder in the laundry room who ignited some of the lint in the vent, but the situation was under control.   Computers were down, so no internet, could not print airplane boarding passes, and oh yes---slots were down in the Casino.  Took a shore excursion.  Out of 45 passengers, 6 spoke only Spanish, so the guide spoke  Spanish 90% of the time and when he did try to narrate in English, he was incomprehensible. The food was mediocre at best----the fruit was either not ripe or overly ripe. The only redeeming part of dining was that our waiter did his best to please us.  This was our 50th anniversary, and wanting that itinerary at that time of the year, we decided to try Royal Caribbean. Out of the 34 cruises we have taken, this cruise for us had the dubious honor of being the worst cruise ever, and we will NOT sail with Royal Caribbean again.  This ship is old and even though it was supposedly refurbished, is not in the 21st century!

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Legend of the Seas | Sail Date: Nov 30, 2014

Everything was great except the fire part.  They would never give us information at first why it happened and where.  Also when questioned about the asbestes, they ignored that completly.  Several got sick from that fire.

We had a very good time, enjoyed ourselves.

Great ship and especially the crew

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Legend of the Seas | Sail Date: Nov 30, 2014

From the moment we entered terminal in San Diego things went smoothly.  I use a scooter and the personal could not be more accommodating.  I had a handicap accessible stateroom on third flour close to elevator mid ship.  The ship was very clean and the state room attendant made sure that we had  everything we needed including (2) foam mattress pad for the top of bed. The bed was to hard for me.

The dining room staff was excellent and made the experience that much better.  The food on the other hand was average, except for the one night at Chops grill which was outstanding.  It was like eating in a 5 star restaurant.  The entertainment for the most part was enjoyable and even though some of the shows were lacking, overall acceptable.

The ports were good especially Cartagana, Columbia.  The trip through the Panama canal was very educational and one that should not be missed, one of the marvels of the world considering when it was built.

This is our fourth cruise on RCL and all of them, the personnel were exceptional.  They all go out there way to make it comfortable and enjoyable.  The only negative is that the 15 day trip is a little to long for us.  We did book a  7 day Alaska Cruise with RCL on board for 06/15 on the Jewel of the seas because of the great promotion through the Cruises only and RCL>

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.

The Schooner Bar is right next to the Casino!! I like the lunch cafe area for healthy eating in the adults only/solarium area. A nice menu.

The solarium pool was a great place for me, swimming, relaxing, food and friends. A great place to hang out while at sea.
