It was a last minute decision to sail on Legend of the Seas. Friends of our were already booked and asked us if we'd be interested in going. That was in February, not quite 2 months out from the sail date. So, we scoured what few ... Read more

This was our 5th cruise and our 4th on RCL - first from Brisbane. Embarkation was very smooth - seemed to go faster than all the ones from Sydney. Parked the car nearby at Portside parking for reasonable rates and dropped fellow ... Read more

We booked this cruise because it visited Fiji, somewhere we hadn't been before. Voyager of the Seas is a lovely ship, well maintained, clean and spacious. However, we unwittingly chose a school holiday cruise so the ship was at 100%+ ... Read more

After booking our cruise in September I read some reviews that were a little unfavourable. (unfriendly crew, long waits at bars, not enough deck chairs, ordinary food etc) So I was unsure what we were in for when we embarked. Wow from ... Read more

This was our 7th cruise with Royal, but our 1st on Legend. We have cuised in the South Pacific before and this itinerary took us to new places we had not seen. As we like the smaller RCships we chose Legend for this cruise. Our ... Read more

This was our second cruise with RCI and found it just as good as the first. Although getting on was slow due to technical issues beyond their control, we were quite happy to sit and wait and meet new cruisers. Although the ship is slightly ... Read more
