Although Royal Caribbean's Legend of the Seas was launched in 1995, it emerged from a 2013 dry dock looking pretty darn spiffy. Just about everything was upgraded, including the carpeting, soft furnishings and ...

We spent 15 wonderful days on Legend of the Seas going through the Panama Canal. Where to start, the cabins are a bit smaller because the ship is smaller for the canal. We were able to store all our belongings, no problem. The ship is an ... Read more

We are Diamond members with 15 cruises under our belt. We are loyal to RCI, at least until now. It seemed as if there were fewer crew members than warranted on this ship. With only one pool bar, I thought it would be better staffed. Always ... Read more

I'm referring to the age of most guests onboard - the average is 60+. My wife, Marie, and I celebrated our 50th birthdays with this trip, and we were pretty much the youngsters on board (not including the staff). Not that this was a ... Read more

This is our tenth cruise, all on Royal Caribbean, and this one really made me question our loyalty. First the good: 1- The ports of call, specifically Panama, the Canal and Costa Rica, were great. These were bucket list dreams finally ... Read more

Tips! 1. Book your shore excursions early. The closer your trip gets they will raise their rates and tell you that their is no more space left on the excursion...BUT once you get on board the ship then they will open more spots and ... Read more

This was our third cruise - first with Royal Caribbean and for the most part we were pleased. This was the last voyage through Panama for this ship as it is on its way to Australia and then to Asia where it apparently has been sold to a ... Read more

My husband and I spent 49 days on the Legend this past winter, and we have never had better service or seen better conditions in the fleet. (We are Diamond Plus members, so we've seen a few ships…) The crew's attention to ... Read more

Where do I start? First the positives: the checkin process was the best we have ever experienced and the stateroom attendant and windjammer staff were great! Nyla in disembarking was great to assist us with a glitch in our travel ... Read more

My experience on the legend of the seas was not to be compared with the Celebrity Cruises I have been on in the past. The Legend of the Seas is an older ship which has been refurbished and to find that they did not consider putting ... Read more

The previous review of the cruise by PAUL is very accurate. I'd just like to add a few things. First, a "members cruise" means that parts of the ship will be set aside for major cruisers that RCI wants to attract to more cruising. This ... Read more

I have been on over 60 cruises in my life and the second on this ship. The embarkation was not smooth at all. They filltered diamond and above in one line and then all other levels in the others. The lines were very long and took one hour. ... Read more

From the start we thought booking a "Crown and Anchor Society" cruise would show us some of the best of RCCL, but it didn't turn out that way. Because of a need for a refrigerator for diabetic medication a request at the time of booking ... Read more

I have waited to write a review to give RCL time to respond to my 14 page comment card, but since they have not shown any interest in addressing the issues, I will post a limited review on here. I would agree with other reviews that ... Read more

Having sailed once before with RCCL 13 years ago from Vancouver - Hawaii, I was looking forward to the same 4 star food we had then. However, this cruise had run out of basics like ice tea, bananas, horseradish, chai tea. The overall food ... Read more

Definitely a cruise to relax and unwind on. The Legend is a smaller ship that was incredibly easy to navigate around. The public rooms are well maintained and the staff was incredibly gracious and it seemed their goal was to make us happy. ... Read more
