Great Bucket List Cruise

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Legend of the Seas | Sail Date: Mar 30, 2015

Going through the Panama Canal is an exciting experience.   It is amazing to see the workings of a system that was built over 100 years ago.  The cruise ship barely fits in the locks and it takes all day to travel from one ocean to the other.  A bonus of the size restriction of the locks is that the ship is small enough that you cross paths with other passengers frequently.   The Panama Canal cruise also attracts passengers from across the globe.   The ports of call were interesting with a good variety of excursions.

Panama

Cruise was good.  The canal portion was very good.  Ship was a little old and service was not what we have experienced in past from Royal Caribbean.

Was nice, geared towards older people.

We had a nice time.  We have cruised Carnival, Holland America, Princess, and this was our first Royal Caribbean cruise.  I had heard that Royal was so much better than the other lines, so I was a little disappointed when it was pretty much the same.  So just pick a cruise that goes where you want and don't choose for the cruise line.  Get the best value for your money and the ports you want to visit.

Lovely Legend of the Seas cruise and best staff of any cruise line

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Legend of the Seas | Sail Date: Mar 20, 2015

We were hesitant about going on a smaller ship, but once on board, it didn't take us long to realize how nice it is to be around familiar faces during your cruise and most important, your face becomes so familiar to the service staff.   My most important point to make about this ship is that the staff did not look tired, over-worked and unhappy.   To the contrary, this crew was the happiest bunch we have ever experienced on any of the cruise lines we have sailed with.   People all over were discussing this.   Decent guests feel bad when we are asking service from weary, depressed. exhausted staff.   You feel guilty being on the cruise ship.   Well, not this bunch!!!   And I am including the officers down to the real worker bees.    Ship is a lovely, well-maintained ship.  Was elegantly refurbished in 2013.    Food in Windjammer very good with nice variety.   Food in dining room was a 7 out of 10.   Service excellent throughout ship.   Entertainment good.   Be sure to see the Classical Concert on board performed by the Legend of the Seas musical director.

Yet another fabulous vacation on RCCL

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Legend of the Seas | Sail Date: Mar 20, 2015

All in all our cruise on Legend of the Seas was wonderful.  There were a few hiccups that were taken care of promptly.  We found the music at night in the Centrum was very loud and had to complain about it.  It was taken care of immediately and we were able to get a good nights sleep.  Our stateroom had a few closet doors that could not close properly because the did not line up.  Otherwise everything was wonderful.  The entire staff and crew could not have been more pleasant and polite.  Our every wish was taken care of with a smile.  The ship was immaculate and the food was out of this world.  I highly recommend this cruise to people of all ages.  RCCL never disappoints.

Positive experience - Enjoyable time!

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Legend of the Seas | Sail Date: Mar 20, 2015

We found the crew to be excellent and  the food was above par for the last couple of cruises aboard RCCL --- Not that the food had been bad, but this was even better!

The ship is showing some wear, but it is quite pretty, still --- This was a much smaller ship than we had been sailing, but we enjoyed the "at home" approach of the crew.  We went out of Ft. Lauderdale, and the passengers were without a doubt, the most complaining group of people we have encountered!  They would probably be the reason for not rating the experience a 5 star --- that is not RCCL's problem, either!

We found that the Diamond Lounge was not large enough to accommodate the numbers, but they did open an "overflow" area, and provided the same amenities.  No problem with that!

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.

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.

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.
