TransAtlantic Adventure!

Sail Date: December 01, 2007

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Family (young children)

Room Type: Oceanview

Although the ship is definitely not new, it had a nice charm about it. The size was small enough to really get to know people. The ship is not sparkly new, but the common rooms (dining room, theatre, library) were always clean and large enough to hold everyone interested. There are two pools, one indoor, one outdoor, and the indoor one does not allow children. It was a little tight for children there. The miniature golfing was fun and the rock climbing wall always looked busy, but not with a huge line. The spa could be booked quickly and they were very nice.

Pros: Adventure Ocean Kid's Club!!!! The variety of cultures, the fabulous itinerary and the relaxation of five days at sea.

Cons: The ship staff seemed to cater to the demands of one language group that was extremely rude and pushy and we changed captains three times

Recommends Legend of the Seas? Yes!

Basseterre, St. Kitts
We love St. Kitts!!! We always go to the beach at either Frigate or Friar's. It's fabulous, the chairs and umbrellas are reasonable, people don't bother you to buy things from them and the beach is beautiful. I usually take a private taxi, but took a water taxi this time. It does not provide the same individual service, but it was cheap and quick.
Don't Miss: The beach!!!

Bridgetown, Barbados
You can't beat the beaches at Barbados, even with the rain it was fabulous!!!
Don't Miss: The beach, we picked one with access through "The Sea Monkey"
Tenerife, Canary Islands
We stayed in town and shopped. People were pleasant to work with. The main plaza was all torn up, so it was hard to get a positive first impression. Others with us went on an island tour and to the beach and loved it. You dock in the north and the better beaches are in the south so you need to hire a taxi or take a tour to get there.
Don't Miss: Shopping
Kingstown, St. Vincent
This was the scariest place I've been for a while... We were told to go to Villa Beach for the best beach experience. We booked a taxi to the beach and he dropped us off and told us to walk on this wooden bridge, under another wooden bridge, to get to the beach. Turned out we walked on the planks to be met with a narrow, stone walkway along the sea wall. So, you had to walk about 40 feet on an 18 inch stone ledge that was slippery and covered with sea weed. The beach was icky and had two storm sewer outlets and a child that was there all day (on a Tuesday) and bothered us, at one point kicking me in the stomach when I said he couldn't use our air mattress. Three policewomen stood there and watched the whole thing!!! Then, a fishing boat came and landed on the beach. The policewoman approached it and we were sure they were going to do something. She did do something, she bought a fish from him and used the nuisance boy to shuttle the fish and money for her. Don't go here.

Tortola, British Virgin Islands
In contrast to St. Vincent, this island had four lifeguards on the beach and when children started to bother us, they were all over it. We went to Cane Garden Bay and the water was clear and so gradually shallow our five year old did great. The umbrellas and chairs were reasonable, drinks were reasonable and everyone was so nice. We had a blast. In the past, we've gone to Brewer's Bay which is a little more secluded and better for snorkeling, but you give up the amenities, no chairs or umbrellas.

Roseau, Dominica
We went whale watching and it was fun. We used the Stingray II and they were nice and did a good job of explaining things. We saw both dolphins and whales. Town, however, is completely skippable. They don't keep up their sidewalks and I know of at least three people that took terrible tumbles including our son.
Don't Miss: Time on the ocean, don't go to the island.
Santa Cruz De La Palma, Canary Islands
We were there on a dreary day, so I stuck to town. The Iglesia de El Salvador or church of Our Savior was beautiful and a real treat.
