Legend of the Seas - a disappointment
Destination: Southern Caribbean
Embarkation: Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)
We realize that cutting back on the quality of the food served is an easy way to save money, but it is something that does NOT make a favorable impression. The dinner menu in Romeo & Juliet lacked variety. In Windjammer at breakfast, the scrambled eggs were invariably undercooked and ranged from cold to barely lukewarm. Mushrooms, something that I enjoy at both breakfast and lunch, were available just once instead of at each meal as per our most recent RCI cruise. The French onion soup was a disgrace. It was anemic, almost tasteless, and contained virtually no onions. Other appetizers, however, ranged from decent to very good . One excellent comment on the food: the salad bar at the noon meal in Romeo & Juliet was outstanding.
As for shore excursions, we had two marginal ones [Aruba and Bonaire] and one excellent one [Antigua]. Entertainment ranged from absolutely excellent [world-class female violinist] to marginal [trio that played daily in the Centrum]. Sharing the facilities at Labadee with passengers from another RCI ship was not a happy experience, especially as far as food service went. Hamburger patties were overcooked and cold and the buns were still frozen. Only favorable point about Labadee was that there were personnel on shore to get lounges set up for the guests.
The boarding/disembarking processes were well-organized and went smoothly. Luggage was delivered to the cabin within a reasonable time period. Less
Cabin review: 6116
Cramped, and lacking in adequate storage for clothing. Lack of a refirgerator was a major disappointment. Due to being unable to keep my insulin cold, I lost a considerable part on one insulin pen.
