Legend, while it is older than most of the fleet, I think it is a great design. I feel the larger ships lose something with the smaller outdoor areas, and more difficulty to walk from one end to the other. Legend has several decks where you can walk the length of the ship. it makes for better freedom, and less people in the same place at the same time. Never do you feel like your with 2000 plus passengers (except for disembarkation) The lido dinning design is the best of any ship with separate stations for different types of food. This keeps any line short, and some may argue that you have to go to two or three places to get what you want, it works. It is better than any buffet i have seen where hundreds crowd in to grab whatever. The legend also has the best pools. The larger ships have reduced the outside areas with pools adding spa's or sports. Legend fits the itinerary, especially if sunshine is the goal.

Pros: I have been on many cruise ships, different sizes< and number of people, The legend, along with the sister ships of this class have an excellent flow. The decor, and surroundings are beautiful. It has a great sense of out door space, pools, and places to relax.
Cons: With any ship of this size, there is always a line to get on, and off the ship, it is expected. lido deck dinning is difficult for drink services.
