Ship Facts: Legend of the Seas Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Legend of the Seas Deck Plans
A very memorable cruise.

Just completed the RCI Legend 15 day trans Panama Canal cruise. The trip was all that we expected to be and more. This was our first cruise on a smaller ship, only 2,000 guests. We found our balcony stateroom to be larger than on some of the newer larger ship with more storage space than we needed and we had three large suitcases.

What the Legend lacks in size it makes up for in ease of getting from one place to the other. Compact public areas made for a very intimate experience.

The dining experience was very good with well prepared meat and fish entrees. The desserts were varied and quite good. The wait staff were efficient although sometimes indifferent. The Windjammer restaurant which served the buffet was too small to handle the lunch crowd and the air conditioning was unable to provide adequate cooling near the panoramic windows in the direct sunlight. The food in the Windjammer was good and kept very hot.

Tthe wine service at dinner was poor even with a purchased wine package. It was impossible to get a glass of wine before the first course was served and completed. Very frustrating!

The entertainment in the theatre was exceptionally good. With a small stage that limited the ability to present large sets the really talented RCI singers and dancers made up for this with some very entertaining productions.

The ports in South America, and Central America were very interesting with the time spent cruising the Panama Canal an unforgettable experience in observing the passage. Watching the passage from a balcony stateroom was an advantage as we were able to avoid the extreme heat and humidity of observing on the open decks. It was an 8 hour passage starting at about 7am.
