Like the ship's public rooms, you could call the staterooms on Seabourn Legend bland. Design-wise, they're a bit outdated. But they, too, are comfortable and peaceful. And the line has upgraded electronics and bedding, so those most important accouterments are quite contemporary.

All cabins are considered suites. At 277 square ft. the "Standards," laid out like mini-suites on other ships, are decorated in a blue and beige color scheme. Thirty-six of them have French balconies; when the ship underwent a major refurbishment a few years back, these verandahs-but-not were added to some cabins. Essentially, the difference between this and a window is the floor-to-ceiling French doors open to the breeze. Having that breeze makes a huge difference -- bringing the sea into my sitting room! Those without the French balconies have big picture windows.

Among the electronic toys offered in every cabin are a Bose CD player and a flat-screen television with DVD capabilities. There are nautical clocks on the wall that seemed to push time forward much more quickly than I would have liked. There's a loveseat and coffee table that's height adjustable (suitable for dining) and a mini-bar filled with your beverages of choice. Like other luxury lines, passengers can request two bottles of liquor (and mixers) or two bottles of wine for in-cabin consumption. Sodas, bottled water and beer are replenished as needed.

Queen beds convert to twins and are laden with an incredibly comfortable (firm) mattress, high cotton count white sheets, silky cotton duvet and plump pillows.

All bathrooms are white marble with whirlpool tubs; they're not huge, but they're beautifully designed. There's no separate shower and on this ship, no double sinks. We love the Molton Brown bath products and appreciated the way they were lavishly replenished. In the nice touch category were a make-up mirror, a hairdryer with good power, a bottle of sun block(!), and a container of cotton swabs and cotton balls.

All suites also have walk-in closets; an in-room safe is tucked away inside it. Storage space was adequate but hardly generous.

Other extras include personalized stationery, plush bathrobes and slippers.

Seabourn Legend has a handful of larger suites. The "Classic" model (400 square ft.) has a separate bedroom and bathroom, a real balcony with two teak chairs and a small table. There's also a dining table in the living area. These have no walk-in closet. The Eriksson and Heyerdahl suites (530 square ft.), classified as owner's suites, were my favorite; located at the front of the ship, these have a long aft-facing balcony with enough room for padded chaise lounges and a dining table. They also feature separate living and sleeping quarters; these have a powder room, as well.

There's another owner's suite with a different configuration; these two, located on Deck 6, feature a separate living and sleeping space, but there's no balcony.

Conversely, if on a budget there are a few of the standard suite accommodations that, because of their location far forward, have different (and not as welcoming) configurations. Cabin 100 on Deck 4, for instance, is built in an L-shaped mode; the television is only watchable from the bed and the sleeping area, with no window, is a bit dark. Others with unusual layouts include 101, 102 and 103. These are typically priced somewhat lower, but do otherwise feature the same standard suite amenities and identical bathrooms.
