Legend of the Seas has a total of 915 cabins split into the following basic categories: inside (132 to 142 square feet), outside (151 to 220 square feet), balcony (151 to 191 square feet with 37- to 42-square-foot balconies), junior suite (230 to 452 square feet with 54- to 76-square-foot balconies) and suite (355 to 1,002 square feet with 75- to 138-square-foot balconies).
The color scheme is generally cream with light woods, accented by touches of tan and teal on the walls, beds, carpet, curtains and sofas. Colorful artwork adorns the walls.
All bathrooms feature toilets, sinks and showers with adjustable-height showerheads that transform into handhelds. A dispenser in each shower offers two-in-one shampoo, which is so runny you'll have trouble keeping it in the palm of your hand long enough to suds it up. Bar soap is also provided, and higher-level cabin-dwellers have access to Vitality shower gel, shampoo and conditioner in small bottles. Beware of the clingy shower curtains. Small shelves for storing toiletries are found next to the sink/mirror area. One odd gripe: We found the toilet paper location -- directly beneath the sink -- a bit strange and cumbersome. Prepare to reach.
Each stateroom is furnished with two twin beds that can be bumped together to form a queen, two small bedside tables, a small sofa and coffee table, a vanity with chair, four outlets (two U.S. and two European), a telephone, a mini-fridge, a keypad-operated safe, ample closet and drawer space, a flat-screen TV with several options (CNN, TBS, TNT, Cartoon Network, HGTV, Discovery, Food Network, and music, foreign language and ship-specific channels) and in-room climate control. (Our air-conditioning worked only sporadically throughout the sailing, and others on our floor complained about similar issues. It really only seemed to start working again on the second-last night of the 15-night voyage.)
A hair dryer is also standard for each cabin, but the ones found in inside, outside and balcony cabins are considerably small and weak; they automatically shut off after five minutes to avoid overheating. We recommend bringing your own or asking your cabin steward to provide you with a larger one -- the same kind found in junior suites and suites.
In addition to nicer hair dryers, junior suites and suites also offer in-cabin coffeemakers and electric teapots, as well as bathrooms with tubs, and additional desk and storage space. The Royal Suite also includes a grand piano and a whirlpool bathtub.
Of the cabins onboard, 388 offer third -- or third and fourth -- berths, and 17 are accessible staterooms.
Standard balconies are each outfitted with two metal and mesh chairs, as well as a decently sized table. Our standard verandah left barely enough room for me to stretch out my legs, but it was still perfect for enjoying the passing scenery with a cup of coffee. Larger balconies offer loungers and smaller tables for drinks.
