Enjoyable Fall Cruise

Ship: Legend of the Seas | Sail Date: Oct 24, 2014

Wife and I booked this trip because of price and location we've not been to before. We ended up with a group of 8 traveling to Quebec and spent one day in Quebec on ship. The Legend of the Seas was refurbished a couple years ago and we felt it was in good condition. Carpets in our rooms and most areas we visited were clean and showed reasonable wear. The ship overall was very clean. We had no problems with facilities or equipment during our voyage. Our room (starboard deck 6 by the aft stairway) was quiet and our room steward, Wilson, was exceptional. He had a smile and good words to say every time we met him and he learned our daily pattern by the 3rd day. Ice was always delivered mid-morning and evening, as we requested. 

 

We missed one port due to gale force winds. This didn't bother us as it simply meant another enjoyable sea day. We could see the sea state and also know the narrow channel to this port so were happy with the captains decision.

 

Being a smaller ship, the entertainment venues were more limited but still very good. The cruise director, Tobi, was top notch and his staff was well trained. We love dancing but found having to dance in the atrium many evenings not as much fun as a more intimate setting such as the Princesses "Wheelhouse" bar. After getting over the idea of dancing in front of 4 floors of spectators, we managed to have fun. We did enjoy the shows and other entertainment on the ship.

 

Food was reasonable good and varied. The "always available" menu had something for most everyone and the daily menu was interesting enough to have us order from that most days. The wait staff, Nevan and Ben, were very good - just falling below exceptional - and kept us 8 entertained and well fed for the whole cruise. They were definitely worth an extra tip at the end of the cruise.

 

We have cruised on Carnival, Celebrity, RCI, Norwegian, and Princess. After 11 cruises, one being 28 days last year, we ranked this ship experience as a close 2nd to Princess and a notch below those we've taken on Celebrity. The itinerary was often cold and damp but we expected that and were fully prepared. We always check the weather patterns before we go and pack accordingly.

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Legend of the Seas | Sail Date: Apr 01, 2014

The itianary was excellent. The ship offered a variety of possible excursions to take if you so desired.  The guest lecturer described the various ports to a T. Due to the smaller sized ship, the variety of activies were limited. overall the evening entertainment - shows were very. The musical entertainment as a whole were good, however one group only had a small repetoire of songs. The food was very good. Service was not as good in the main dining room as we have seen on previous trips. The ship was very clean!!!!!!

My experience.

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Legend of the Seas | Sail Date: Mar 07, 2014

Our trip was great.  The ship was clean, the food excellent, the entertainment was very

enjoyable.  I didn't realize I cruised this ship 16 years ago with my two daughters and their husbancs.

Paul, our entertaiment director, was very personable and entertaining with his opening of his shows with a joke.

The party on the deck was really great!  Even though I'm in my late 70's I was there doing the line-dancing.with all the

others.How could you not!

This was my 19th cruise (many with RCL) and was happy photography wasn't pushed on you as previous years.

Also, drinks weren't pushed on you on the sun decks either.  An A+ for that.

 

I must give "Jeff Norris"  a great compliment.  His comedy act was fantastic.!!!!  It was nice to have someone make you laugh and still

keep it clean. You need to bring him back.  I wrote him requesting his DVD since he ran out of them and returned my request immediately.

An ada-boy for him!

The entertainment was great, the food was good. Ship was very clean. Service was great.

The gym was not the best.

The Crown and anchor rep. was very rude.

Over all it was a great cruise.

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Legend of the Seas | Sail Date: Feb 14, 2014

We like the tipe of music and dance lessons. Also the entertainment.

We really liked the service in the windjammer special mention to Ryxon Lasleva with his attencion. The omelet seccion we loved.

Our experience in the dinning room the waiter and his assistant with trieir exelent service table 80

Our state  room was squicky and nosy, but we gues its normal for a 19 years old ship, but we  would go again.

My husband would like to see people signing for the beach tawels as used to be, People leave towels on the chairs, so no body knows if are taken or not. It takes a long time to find a chair.    .

Popular tips for Legend of the Seas.


Spend evenings in the adult pool area. Great view and lots of seating.

Have a drink at the Victory Lounge on the top deck - very relaxing and reflective atmosphere Becomes a dance lounge later in the night but that was a great time on those couple of nights we chose to stick around and dance.

The spa pool is an excellent hangout for a light breakfast or lunch. If you enjoy good beers you'll have to wait for a shore excursion as nothing but lightweights are available on-board.
