Book your excursions early because many of the good ones sell out. Don't plan to spend any time in your room as it is very stuffy. Eating at the buffet area is way better than Truffles restaurant. Impressed with alcohol prices onboard compared with Royal Caribbean. See the String Trio Polaris if they are on the ship. They were the highlight of our cruise.
On deck three at the front of the ship is a special walkway that is a great place to go if you want to read or talk quietly. We love that it’s so easy to get around the Legend. The MDR is easy to get to since you don’t have to go t9 another floor to get there, but can get off any of the elevators and walk there.
If you bring your 12pk pop bring it as carry on and not check luggage no matter what security tells you before you enter. As it will be confiscated if you use check option which security guard at terminal entrance made us do.
Bring a hanging shoe organizer for so many small things you need all the time - curling iron, stack of underwear, socks, walking shoes, jewelry pouches, chargers, hats, etc. This was a life-saver! Hung on inside of a close so it was out of site but evening readily available.
Take a warm blanket with you
The Legend is great Port Tampa not so much!
The Casino is not the place to be if you are not a smoker it’s very smoky and hard to breath in there.
It was great overall, we were rookie cruisers, so we didn't take full advantage of what was available, so don't be like us, do your research.
Plan for a very long wait to exit the ship. Can't something be done about that?
Enjoy and relax, look around.
This was our 3rd cruise and best yet! If your first cruise isn't amazing maybe you just need to try again until you find your cruise comfort zone. It gets even better when you know your onboard preferences and can make sure you make time for what you truly enjoy onboard.
Don’t forget to have fun !
It’s a smaller ship but that’s why we loved it, less people and less crowds compared to other larger ships. Go with an open mind and have fun, you’re on vacation!
When staff members are not nice tell guests service or things will not change
Manage your expectations. It's not luxury and it's not broken down. Your experience will vary depending on those expectations. Regardless, it the people or the person you cruise with that will make a lasting memory
being on the first floor made exiting and returning on the ship a breeze we just had to travel one staircase each time we left the ship
