Disappointing compared to our '09 cruise

Sail Date: August 26, 2011

Reviewed: 5 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Suite

The Legend is showing her age. There were stains and cracks in the bathroom marble, linens were frayed and scratchy, the bed was lumpy, furnishings were scratched and dented. Wines were not "premium"; i.e., Santa Margherita was served as the white and was poured throughout the meal unless a red was requested. We were in a lower price cabin category, but I think it is reasonable to expect a better experience for $1200 a day. We paid considerably less for a better cabin in '09, which comparatively was an exceptional experience.

Pros: The food

Cons: Service

Recommends Seabourn Legend? No.

Ship Quality
Finding your way around the ship was a constant struggle. Perhaps signage would help.
Food and Dining
The food was the best part of the experience; however, we found bugs crawling up the sides of bowl when served granola.
Cabin / Stateroom
The hand blown crystal is a nice touch when it is replaced.
Service and Staff
We frequently had to reorder items because restaurant staff forgot to place the order, we'd wait up to 30 minutes between courses, room service seldom answered the phone, items like towles, ice, glasses, drinks were not restocked in common areas such as whirlpool, sundeck, gym.
