The Legend is a beautiful vessel! On the whole, it is kept immaculate. The staff is very friendly, however, there are not enough to keep up with the demands of the breakfast and lunch rooms during peek hours. There also seemed to be less than needed cocktail hostesses during shows. However, there were plenty on deck during sailing hours. The cabin steward was very good and tended to basic needs well. My 11 year old son attended 3 events at Club Carnival that were marked for 6-11 year olds. He wasn't happy with the counselors who kept telling then that they were spoiling the time of the 6 year olds. I think they need to separate the groups further into 6-8 year olds and 9-11 year olds. The counselors spoiled those times for my son. The restaurant food was good, but we opted for the buffet style food 5 out of 8 nights. There was an abundance of fish served in the main dining room (not our preference) and we were having too much of a relaxing time on deck to go get properly dressed for the dining room. Evening entertainment went from fabulous some nights (Broadway style shows) to not so good (comedian and musician). Two nights of entertainment was from passengers, so that was quite interesting. All in all, the cruise was a good one, but the ports of call were by far the highlights.

Ports of Call
Don't Miss: SEABLASTER - don't even hesitate to do this activity!
Don't Miss: I recommend the Jeep excursion, but be aware of the negative points.
Pros: St. Thomas was gorgeous with friendly people and LOTS of fun things to do.
Cons: not enough help cleaning buffet rooms (bfast and lunch) - too much time waiting for cleaned spaces lead to cleaning it yourself or having cold food
