Ship Facts: Legend of the Seas Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Legend of the Seas Deck Plans
Less than Legendary

This was my 8th cruise, and the third on RCCL; We chose this cruise for the ports of call, assuming the ship itself would be of the same quality as prior Royal cruises - especially since it was recently refurbished; This was not the case. The cabins were old and worn and facilities are lacking compared to other ships; Staff/service seemed burned out or downright poor; Live music is very sparse at best, limited to mostly big band music. Hope you like to ballroom dance, because there's a lot of it. Even for Sail Away when you'd like something festive or relaxing, we had to endure microphones blasting at full volume at the Pool nearly daily for line dancing classes often attended by 9 people or less. One of the things they tout for the refurbishment was the aerial performance in the main entry way; Unfortunately the venue is WAY too small for it so most people couldn't see up the narrow "tube" of that part of the ship, and either you missed something up top or down below; I eventually gave up on two of the 'shows' and went back to my stateroom; The ship was full of (occasionally pushy, mean, entitled) senior citizens and (consequently perhaps?) the nightlife was nearly non existent; (some of these people were actually heckling dancers in the main lounge! Embarrassingly bad behavior) I would not recommend this ship for anyone less than 50, actually as there isn't much to do. The food/menu on this ship was also particularly boring; I've never been on a cruise where some form of turkey and gravy was a Featured Entree every night in the MDR! Lack of imagination, regional cuisine, variety was apparent in both the MDR and WJ. Thankfully the ports of call were fabulous. As another reviewer noted, I wouldn't recommend this ship for a long haul ocean voyage either because it bobbed around like a cork and many people were affected, including my traveling partners who have never been bothered by motion sickness in all their cruises; I'm sure its safe, but it doesn't seem to have the stabilization features of newer vessels. Short story -- 'one and done' on the Legend of the Seas for us.
