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.

Far East Cruise To Remember

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

Overall, I will recommend this cruise to my friends and relatives. I would like to commend the waiters (Jonard & Wei Lei) , bartenders, our room attendant (Katut), the cruise director and entertainers (Chris & his people) for doing their excellent services during our cruise. The following improvements are needed: (1) Hongkong embarkation is very dis-organized. No formal instruction for the passenger where to fall in line and it was a mess. (2) Due to limited number of local boats, the cruise excursion in Puerto Princesa requires a coordination between the tour director and the local people involved in the subterranean river excursion. There's not enough boats to accommodate the influx of tourist and we have to wait for hours under the heat of the sun in humid environment resulting the delay of our arrival in the ship.

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.

Panama Canal Cruise Experience

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

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.

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.
