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!

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>

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.

An entretaiming trip

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Legend of the Seas | Sail Date: Nov 15, 2014

The cruise as a whole was a good experience, plenty of activities on the ship to keep you busy and happy, the shows, the musical entertainment, the night club dancing, the pool parties ,etc. All contributed to a fun experience. The food on the ship, both at the windjammer and the formal dining room was not as good a quality as, from my previous cruise, the quality of the meats left a lot to be desired, and the meals repeated to much of the same choices. The port of calls were nice , the canal in particular, but to short of a visit at Puerto Vallarta and Cabo San Lucas. The stops at each location would be nice if the ship stayed longer, 12 hours or more would be nice. Again the food needs improvement. I hope my next cruise food choices and quality of it improve.

Good Cruise

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!

Our legend of the DEa 10 day Caribbean cruise review

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

It was an enjoyable cruise.  The staff and crew were most accomodating.  We particularily enjoyed our spacious cabin, which worked well for my husband as he has some slight mobility issues.  The itenerary suited our wishes.  We really enjoyed the entertainment!

VERY ENJOYABLE 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.    .

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.

Great Trip!!

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Legend of the Seas | Sail Date: Jan 03, 2014

This is our second cruise on Royal Caribbean and the standard of service excellence was also provided on Legend of the Seas.  We were so impressed with the crew and the service received that we put down deposit for a future cruise with Royal Caribbean.

 

The 10-night Easter Caribbean Cruise was the perfect cruise for us.  We enjoyed the relaxing days at sea to and from the port of calls and the varieous activities on board the Legend of the Seas.  This ship is smaller than the previous one we were on but it offered interesting and fun activies like belly flop contest by the pool and engaging lectures on whales.  I especially like how the ship designated a smoking section on deck 9, one side of the pool, that shields smokers from the element while the non-smokers are also offered the same protection on the other side of the pool.

 

Although I enjoyed the dance lessons offered I wish they were more Caribbean centric dances. i.e. salsa, vs the ball room dance taught at each session.  Be forewarned of the frozen mudslide, it looks very pretty and tasts delicious and will sneak up on you if you don't pace yourself. :-)

 

Overall, a great trip!!

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.
