Ship Facts: Seabourn Legend Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Seabourn Legend Deck Plans
Luxury Cruising at Its Best
The Seabourn Legend prides itself on service, and it delivers. From the moment you walk on the ship you are pampered. With a passenger to staff ratio of nearly 1 to 1, this is easy.

The cabins, even the smallest, is a suite with a walk-in closet and a bath with bath tub. All amenities are top of the line, with such things as a choice of Hermes soap. Your in suite bar will be stocked with your favorite beverage, and you may enjoy cocktails anywhere on the ship, night or day, all included of course. Nick from South Africa, or one of the other waiters will be there to bring you "the usual" or whatever else you may desire.

The food is wonderful, including 24 hour room service, even having your dinner on room service delivered course by course. Like a buffet? Don't even think of those mega ship experiences. Instead head for the Veranda Cafe where you will find tables set with linens and real silver and glassware for both breakfast and dinner. And you can have table service there instead of going through the line. There is standard fare or gourmet.

In the evening, expect an occasional invitation to dine with the Captain or his staff, or one of the excellent entertainers. Then you can meet other passengers who have also been invited.

The entertainment is excellent. On this particular occasion, they had a pianist/vocalist, Adam James, who could play all your favorites for listening and dancing before dinner. After dinner continue with the Oasis Band and vocalists Christina Otero or Speedy Gonzales (I am not kidding) who had wonderful voices. Occasional entertainment included a superb magician and a concert pianist.

Your cruise director Eric De Gray is handsome, talented, funny, with a penchant for sharing his joie de vivre with all the guests. His assistant Rachel is a great singer with a bluesy voice, a la Shirley Bassey.

The ports were good ... but then, they don't really matter. This is all about the ship. Next time we are going to do a trans Atlantic - 12 days uninterrupted by ports!
