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

It was on my husband's bucket list to go to Alaska, but never on mine. I was looking forward to seeing the scenery Alaska had to offer but really didn't expect to enjoy the trip that much. I was SO wrong. We are from Oklahoma so we flew to ... 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

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

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
