Ship Facts: Legend of the Seas Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Legend of the Seas Deck Plans
First and LAST time on the Legend...

We are "low maintenance" Platinum C&A members, and have had 6 RC sailings this year alone, from the smallest, (Monarch) to the Oasis. This was our first voyage on the Legend. And last.

Our first outside cabin was so loud from the engines you could not sleep, even with earplugs, so they moved us up a deck. The new room vibrated. The ceiling, the television, the bathroom door, etc. There was also an inexplicable LOUD humming coming from the outside. Our neighbors above us experienced the same thing. Oh well, we thought... perhaps we can turn up the television a bit. Unless you wanted to watch cartoons or RC ads, there was nothing else, as the satellite did not work. Thank Heaven we are not prone to sea-sickness, as this ship was like a toy, tossed about in the waves. I have been in rougher seas on smaller vessels, and never experienced this. Many passengers got ill, and sea-sickness bags were handed out.

The MDR staff were nice, as was the food. I realize this is "dining", as opposed to "feeding", but I really don't like to wait 27 minutes for an appetizer, and then another 35 for an entrée. We gave up after the third night and stuck to the WJ, except for a great dinner at Chops.

In the WJ, the ice machines were all broken, (all 10 days), so they put out tubs of ice. I saw several people using their used glasses as ice scoops, (NASTY), and mentioned it to the officer in charge, who was absolutely belligerent. I went straight to the F&B director, who rectified the problem.

The WJ staff were pleasant, and our first stateroom was outstanding. WJ food was very repetitive, but good overall.

We will continue to be "loyal to Royal", but not on this ship
