Part of any good cruise experience is great weather and for the first few days of the cruise the weather was much warmer than expected. Felt as if we were in the Caribbean on the Baltic Sea. Cruise lines can't control the weather, but don't make decisions about when to cruise based on average temps, etc.

Spent a great deal of time exploring the shore excursions and booking them well in advance of the cruise date and this was a very wise decision. We enjoyed each of our tours immensely. The guides were excellent. The countries were beautiful even when the weather wasn't quite so nice. Visiting St. Petersburg was not the best experience due to Russian immigration and crowds at the Hermitage but we made the best of it and met some interesting people in the passport control line. After visiting the Hermitage any bad memories of the lines were erased. It is absolutely magnificent. This was our 13th cruise, 5 on Celebrity, 3 on Norweigan, 1 on Carnival, 2 on Princess and 2 on Royal Caribbean. We choose our cruises based on itineary and not the cruise line. I would rate this Royal Caribbean cruise to Scandanavia and Russia number 3 on our list of best cruises for very good food, activities, ports of call and overall  service.

Could have been better.

| Ship: Legend of the Seas | Sail Date: May 31, 2014

My first cruise with R.C. was a five star experience, this simply fell short.  Except for our porter, dining room waiter and his assistant our staff experience would have been 2 stars.  The ship activity directors were friendly and helpful.  Unfortunately, that was not the standard for the customer service and information desk, cafe servers, and Windjammer servers, They were polite, but far from friendly. The customer information desk, gave us the wrong times for activities, sent us to the wrong area to find places we needed and again not friendly.  We had a drink package for our sodas and were refused free sodas at one of the restaurants on our list, customer service did nothing to help.

 

I went to check on our luggage, we had all but 1 suitcase, my porter informed me, he didn't know why, but I had to go to security to retrieve my bag.  Confused and concerned as to what the problem was, I went. I was met by 1 very stern and scowling security officer and greeted by the other. The scowler says, "You cannot not have your luggage because there was an iron found, and that is not allowed."  I say "Oh, I didn't realize that, but no problem you can take it."  Scowler says "Well, it is in your paperwork and you can't have it.  Me (with a little atitude) I understand, go ahead and keep it" the other security says "I'm sorry for the inconvenience, all we need is to make a slip and we will return when you disembark. We hope your trip is good.  Scowler-not a word.  funny how my travel iron with an auto shut-off was so bad, yet my 2 curling irons without auto shut-off were no problem.

 

Instead of greeting guests as we returned back from onshore excursions we were hustled through and treated like we were strangers trying to sneak onboard.  Nothing like my first cruise--which was on a larger ship with more guests. A smile and a greeting goes a very long way!

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!

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.

Well done.
