Review summary

Great cruise and great way to see some of Alaska. Nancy, the Naturalist on board, was extremely knowledgable about the Fiord and all the wild life. Don’t expect above-average food at the buffet or MDR Slow service in the MDR. Comedy was great. Jerry, the host of Punchliner is so funny and friendly.

Embarkation

4 out of 5
Embarkation was a bit confusing. Nobody directing anything at the port, had to track down a porter to take luggage.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Food is mediocre at best. Although servers were great and working their tails off in the MDR, we only had one meal where something we ordered wasn’t missing. And the service was super slow. Not enough wait staff.

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
Always love trivia and game shows.

Children's Programs

5 out of 5
My grandkids love Camp Ocean and would spend all their time there if possible. They made some of the cutest crafts ever. Miss Jay was super awesome.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Waiters and room stewards are the best, hardest working people.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Ship was clean. Layout is great, super simple to navigate.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Cabin was a good size and had plenty of storage. Balcony was great.

Ship tip

The Legend is a nice, smaller ship. Get to the comedy shows early to get a seat.

Ports of call

Seattle, Washington

5 out of 5
We stayed in Seattle for two days after the cruise and had an absolute blast. Get a city pass for $99, well worth it.

Cruise Tracy Arm Fjord, Alaska

Beautiful scenery but did not see any wildlife.
