Ship Facts: Seabourn Legend Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Seabourn Legend Deck Plans
Another great Seabourn cruise

Having completed a Mediterranean cruise in May in 2011 and 2012 we were really looking forward to this one, however this time instead of warm temperatures and clear skies we experienced a cool wet late spring and a couple of days of rough seas. Like most people on this cruise we were a little disappointed but we still had a wonderful time and the staff were once again excellent.

Our ports of call were not quite as exciting as some and we experienced our first full sea day on a smaller ship. Surprisingly the day flew passed and there was plenty to keep us entertained. The food was excellent and lots of variety and so beautifully presented it was almost a shame to eat it. Cruise director David was very entertaining and all the entertainers were excellent. Each night we danced into the wee hours as did so many of the passengers.

Unlike on the Seabourn Spirit where the crew knew your name at embarkation, they took a day or two to remember this time. All the staff were so friendly, efficient and welcoming it was a pleasure to be on the ship. I think the thing that makes this type of cruising so enjoyable is the small size allows you to get to know staff and fellow passengers so much better and form great relationships.

Since all ports of call are not on the list to review I will do the ones that are not listed below:

Trapani Sicily - a great place to visit and we took a local bus and then the cable car up to Erice and had a marvellous day. The views over the island were magnificent especially since this was a warm sunny day.




Ajaccio, Corsica while this city was not that exciting a visit to the surrounding area rewards you with magnificent views and beautiful beaches. Mind you the bus trip is pretty nerve racking experience as the roads are some of the narrowest and most winding I have been on. The rock formations are well worth seeing and the town of Piana was very pretty.
