We stay in Hong Kong before the cruise which is the best thing to do. We embark very smoothly in hong kong and disembarkation in Brisbane was great. While the ship is looking old and could do with revamping, I really loved the cabin, while I normally don't like a soft bed it was okay. I ate in the buffet for most lunches and the selection was great especially as a diabetic I loved having choices of dessert that are sugar-free and tasted great. Entertainment and activities where good but more activities that tailor to the guest would great i.e more craft. The front desk had long lines during the first 2 days of the cruise. While the tender ports you had to wait longer if you were not an organized tour but as experience cruisers, we expected that. Of all the sun princess have some great points and only a few issues that can be rectified Read Less

This was a really relaxing cruise. Legend have great staff who go out of their way to help. We had an issue with our cabin (#3533) which was located under the glass washing room for the R Bar and Schoner Bar. So every night between 10.30 - 2.30 was a bit of noise. Day 6 we spoke to Adeline from guest service and we were shifted to #8075. An awesome cabin and location. We were surprised she shifted us, as we said we were happy where we were, but could they ask to get them to control the noise. The only real issue, if you can call it that !!! was at Bali. Royal Caribbean used local tenders as this was a tender port. The tender ashore went well, but the winds came up around 11.00am. We returned at 11.30am and it was a slow return and very rough. Because the tenders used carried 150 - 180 pax, loading and unloading was really slow, because numbers as well as a lot of disabled people on this cruise. (Which was great to see, as in Pacific Island tender ports "if you can't walk on tender, you don't go")so this meant tenders were sitting and waiting to unload on ship for 20-30 min. But weather isn't Captains fault, and he has no control over the speed of local tender operators. I think the only downside for us was the constant whinging from so called well travelled cruisers about everything (24/7). Some people just need to chill out and smell the roses. We always dine in the Main dining room, as not a fan of the buffets. Think they bring the worst out in people plus they always over eat. Dining room food and service was great. People on our table had some meal they didn't like or wasn't what they expected, but waiter replaced it straight away with what ever they wanted. Keith and Sanie were awesome as always, and the staff all over the ship were really helpful, I think it's a same RCI are selling the Legend and moving to bigger ships. We like the small ships as you get to know all the staff and know your needs with in a few days. Thank you Legend of the Seas for a great cruise. Read Less

We chose this cruise called Sultans to Safaris because of the diversity of the ports and the length of the cruise. It really did sail from Borneo's home of the Sultan of Brunei to the opportunity for safaris in Africa. The cruise was a portion of a world 6 month cruise on the beautiful Insignia. We came onboard in Hong Kong after a long flight and a short shore excursion to see a few sights of this gorgeous city. The embarkation was unusual because the ship was actually docked at a shopping center! Imagine our surprise when our guide drove us up to a shipping bay at a shopping center to unload us and our luggage. It was easy, breezy from there to sign in and go onboard. Then we actually went back out into the shopping to find a wine store to bring a few bottles onboard for later consumption. The first few ports were full of mosques, palaces, temples, etc. Lots to see in Manila, Malaysia, Brunei, Sri Lanka. We had arranged for private guides in most ports but sometimes just went with taxi drivers. Lots to see and do. Starting westward we also stopped in the gorgeous Seychelles with its granite strewn beaches, and then onward to the African continent. Highlight of the cruise were the day safaris in Kenya and South Africa. We had booked these in advance, and each one was a marvel. Loved all the animals. So, the cruise was fantastic. I have to add that the food on the ship was absolutely fantastic, no matter which restaurant we chose. Insignia is one of the smaller ships (fewer than 700 passengers), so it has only 2 specialty restaurants - Italian and steakhouse at the time of our cruise. We enjoyed each of these several times, but the main dining room and buffet are fabulous, too. Room service was a bit slow but food generally very good, too. The entertainment was only nominal, but the cruise director and the social director were top notch - best we have encountered during our 39 cruises, so far. After the cruise we stayed for a 3 day Oceania stay in Cape Town, So. Africa. Enjoyed a shore excursion each day, including one to a private game preserve, and we fell in love with the city. The transfer from ship to hotel included a nice preview of the city and the beaches surrounding it. Kudos to Oceania for a fabulous cruise! Read Less
