The Legend is a relatively "older" ship and doesn't have all the glitz of the newer members of the fleet, but what it does have was top of the line.

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
There were only 3 dining options, and one was basically just junk food, but there was always something open.

Above & beyond was the norm, not the exception.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Layout is very easy to navigate. No going around to get through. Even though our room was at the very aft, it took little time to get anywhere on the ship.

Cabin / Stateroom

The snorkeling was not up to our expectations. The reef was a bit bland and the variety of fish was small, but the excursion crew were great and the outing was still lots of fun.

Tourist village was pleasant with a lot to offer. The Dune Buggy excursion never went off-road, which is what we expected, but was still a great deal of fun, the leaders very entertaining and the beach was beautiful.

Once you left the tourist landing and went out onto Front St. the pressure from the locals to buy, tour, spend was oppressive. We were directed over the swing bridge to visit the city on foot, where we found the poorest part of the city - dirty, smelly and quite depressing. We quickly returned to the ship.
5 out of 5
The best was last. Tons of activity options, great shopping without a wave of pressure.
Don't Miss: If all you want is a beach day, Playa Mia Beach park is great. Beautiful beach, open bar, food, some shops, plenty of rentals, as relaxed or as busy as you want.

Pros: The service, no wait, it was the food, no I mean the shows.

Cons: The shops being closed while in port.
