Background Information :
Cruising somehow is not a common vacation option in my country Indonesia. Beside the prices are expensive according to us, there aren't much people know about this kind of vacation due to lack of publicity. Somehow I managed to obtain this luxury cruising. You can consider me lucky because most of my country's people can't afford the price
Hotel Info (if any):
I lived in a flat in Chinatown. suggested by my friend. We spent 2 night there before cruising and 1 night after cruising. sgd 160 for 6 pax a night
Legend of the sea is 11th decks ship. you can read complete overview in my personal blog. http://cststephanie.blogspot.com/2011/02/royal-caribbean-legend-of-sea.html
As far as I can see most of activities conducted there were just for old people. For younger cruisers like us, you can't expect much.
Napkin folding class and towel folding class were good enough.
The rock climbing, poolside party, and jacuzzi really fun
The songs were old-fashioned.
Piano and violin Classic duo were very patient receiving our request.
That's entertainment shows were really GREAT
The crew were very friendly. I never met nice crews like that. especially my dining room waiter(Chinese) and assistant waiter (korean). and also my room attendant(phillipines). We got table number 4.
Port & Shore Excursions
We didn't take that. Because we could speak melayu as we were Indonesian. We could travelling by ourselves.
My stateroom attendant was very helpful. He was phillipines. Sometimes we had trouble to set our bedrooms and he kindly helped us. My friend's stateroom was chinese. She was very nice gave us private lesson of towel folding and kindly taking care of us girls like a mother. we love her since.and still keep in contact with her.
Dining is the best part of this ship. We had lovely waiter and assistant waiter. We also found an Indonesian waiter who kindly giving us a nice conversation.
We like to have conversation with others so we were very glad that our waiter and assistant waiter, also the head waiter gave us chance to know each other. As we managed to still keep in contact with them although they were very busy sailing.
High quality entertainment were provided in the ship. you can obtain a broadway-style show.or classical piano show.or acrobatic show.
I felt a little bored in the ship due to old fashioned activities. But overall, this cruising was fun and really unforgettable. I always miss the ship ever since the day I left the ship.
