Great Ports of Call

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Legend of the Seas | Sail Date:

The ship is old and needs refurbishment (a thorough cleaning won't suffice). Staff is attentive and friendly, which helped to make up for what the ship lacked. Musical group was comparable to most junior high school performers.  Food was decent and tasty, and the menu was sufficiently varied although it would have been nice if the local port dishes had been featured for a fuller experience of the culture. The captain was friendly and approachable, and two bar servers (Maria and Laila) made every encounter with them an entertainment opportunity.

The Good, The Bad and The Very, Very Ugly

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Legend of the Seas | Sail Date:

Well, the bed was very comfortable and so was the cabin. The ports of call were also fun and the the excursions that I set up exclusive of those offered by the ship were great. The food in the main dining room was also very good. But that's were the good ended. The bad? The staff of the ship. The cruise drirector needed a personality replacement. I've been on other cruises where they have been much, much better. This guy, needs to learn to say something other than "how are you doing tonight?" or "did you enjoy the show?" Do you want smoked salmon in the Windjammer on the beginning of the cruise? Sorry, that's against policy. Although it did show up later in the later in the cruise. Did policy change somewhere in the middle of the South China Sea? Want a pancake that doesn't resemble something like a hockey puck? That, too, was an impossibility. Inconsistent food quality was a hallmark of the Windjammer.

Ah and now the very, very ugly...How about a a few rude crew members? Yes, they were in attendance on this ship of fools. How about a tendering process that must have been organized by a ten year old (no insult to ten year olds intended)? That's right...waiting in the hot sun for over an hour to get on a tender back to the ship on two separate occasions. NO apology even. You'd think these guys would have that down to a science by now. 

Think of complaining and getting and getting any kind of apology? Forget about it. They couldn't care less. And how about $36.00 for a 24 hour internet connection? I don't know what you would call that but where I come from I call it a Royal Ripoff!

I have taken many diferent cruises over the last twenty years and many on Royal Carribean and this one has to be the worst ever. It will make me question whether to take another Royal Carribean ever again.

Island Hopper cruise

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Legend of the Seas | Sail Date:

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.

Legend of the Seas

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Legend of the Seas | Sail Date:

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.

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

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Legend of the Seas | Sail Date:

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:

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.

My Cruise Experience

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Legend of the Seas | Sail Date:

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.

A once in a lifetime cruise

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Legend of the Seas | Sail Date:

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.

Legend of the Seas Cruise through Panama Canal

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Legend of the Seas | Sail Date:

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.

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.
