The Glorious Ancient world
Destination: Europe - Eastern Mediterranean
Embarkation: Rome (Civitavecchia)
This trip was a trip of a life time. Legend of The Seas: The ship "Legend of the seas" is an older, smaller ship with incredible staff. Not one staff member was rude, nasty or ignorant. Whenever you walked by any of them, they would smile and say "Hello or good morning" always said something. Our room was an inside cabin on the second deck and next to a very noisy boiler. I inquired whether there were any other rooms on the same deck and they moved us up to the 3rd deck, a room with an ocean view, at no charge. They could not have been more obliging.
Cabins are a good size and have very comfortable beds. Our cabin steward was new to the ship, but had worked on other ships. He made sure that I had plenty of ice every day, all through the day. The waiter, assistant waiter and Head waiter were amazing. We had a lot of fun with them every evening. We prefer dining in the dining room at an assigned table, so we get to know our waiter and assistant waiter.
Food: The food was More great, although, we have had some better meals on other cruises. There was some repetition. The Windjammer buffet had great food and great variety. There was always something to eat somewhere on the ship. We never have tried room service, others we spoke to said it was great.
Excursions: We booked all of our tours through Royal Caribbean before we left on vacation. The tours were wonderful and well worth the money. We had booked tours in Naples (Pompeii), Athens (Acropolis), Turkey (Ephesus) and Egypt, Cairo, (the pyramids).
This trip is one of the best we have been on, the ship was not as glorious as some, but the itinerary was great. Our group usually pick cruises that we can afford without being extravagant. We would rather go for cheaper cruises, inside cabins, on the lower decks, so we can go more often. Baltic is our next cruise, June 2010. Less

Cabin review: out
Our first room was nice on the 2nd deck. (We like to do lots of walking, so we pick the lower deck and never ride the elevator.) It was very noisy, so RC gave us a room on the 3rd deck. This room was great, had a window, still somewhat noisy if it was windy outside, as it was at the back of the ship. Was about the same size as any other room we have had on other cruises and cruise ships. Don't need much room as we don't spend much time in our cabin.
