Room Type: Balcony

The Legend of the Seas, nowdays, is on the smaller side, which gives it some advantages like: quicker processing times for embarkation and debarkation, smaller queues for excursions, dinning options and activities. The staff is to be commended for their friendliness and willingness to satisfy your needs. The food at the Windjammer was adequate; at the Romeo and Juliette restaurante was good, but on formal evening was not extra special and at Chops Grille, delicious. There was a good balance between sea days and ports of call. Because of its size, the production shows were not as embellish as on a larger vessel. The Solareum is a great place for those who wish to  get away from the bustle of the main pool area.

Cabin / Stateroom
Erroll Samuel was our cabinesteward. He did a fantastic job!!!! He was very attentive to our needs.

Ship Quality
Destinations and Excursions
Some of the excursions in Indonesia and Puerto Princesa were too long. There was no time to explore any aspect, other than the excursion, of the city.

Food and Dining
Brisbane, Australia
Airlie Beach, Queensland, Australia
The trip to the Great Barrier Reef was 2 hours each way through somewhat heavy seas. If you are at all queasy, take seasick pills before the trip. Several people on the boat were very sick and did not share in the experience.
Cairns, Australia
Darwin, Australia
Benoa, Bali, Indonesia
Kota Kinabalu, Malaysia
This was listed as a beach getaway with buffet. The facilities at the site were underwhelming at best. No lounge chairs were available, only plastic chairs; the restrooms were bad.
Puerto Princesa, Philippines
Manila, Philippines
The excursion was way tooo long. A 2+ hour bus ride in each direction. The trip up and down the river was too long and they crowded too many people into small canoes. We arrived one hour later than scheduled, with no time to do any exploring in the city.
Hong Kong

Tip

There were activities for all different types, from basic language lessons, to single or couples dance lessons to art seminars.
