A cruise has always been my dream and I'm thankful and grateful to my sister for making this dream come true. We had interior cabins with no windows which was perfect since Alaska had 19 hours of daylight and this made it so easy to ... Read more

We just returned from our cruise on the Legend. The ship was as expected, but I'd have to say the crew wasn't as good as I would have liked. We were forgotten a couple of times in the Dining room and sat for sometime before we got ... Read more

We chose the cruise based on the itinerary and it was slightly less expensive than other cruise lines. However the stops in Victoria and Ketchikan were too short. The excursions were all too expensive. We took the steam train in Skagway ... Read more

Seeing Alaska was a dream of my husbands and I'll admit that I was not nearly as excited as he was. I am more a hot weather, beach girl. I was SO wrong about this cruise. Alaska is nothing less than magnificent. We flew into Seattle a day ... Read more

We stayed in Seattle a few days before our cruise at the Springhill Suites S Lake Union. It was a nice hotel with a shuttle to town but there was nowhere to eat except their restaurant nearby. We booked a premium balcony 9B 6279 with ... Read more

This was my 4th cruise, and my first time visiting Alaska. I've wanted to visit Alaska since my wife introduced me to cruising several years ago as I prefer the cold. Overall, it hasn't been my favorite cruse I've ever taken, but was a ... Read more

This was our second cruise on the Legend and it has been redecorated. We liked the decor! Embarkation was fine except my daughter left her passport in her suitcase. So we were put into the "trouble children" pen. (LOL) It was a ... Read more

Only a mini-review We returned to Florida last night, (May 25, 2016), after spending an extra day in Seattle. My wife and I both agree that the "Alaska" portion of the cruise was completely excellent. It was everything you ... Read more

I enjoyed cruising on the Legend for the size of the ship. It was small and without a large amount of passengers. The food left a little to be desired. There was not a good selection of food at every meal. There were times I just had a ... Read more
