In an era of mega ships with all he bells and whistles, the Legend is fighting a losing battle. Despite the smaller passenger capacity, the ship struggles to meet the needs of its guests. The Windjammer cafe is constantly jammed with too many people seeking too few seats. The cruise line sought to improve the situation by removing many two and four seat tables and replacing them with 5-6 seat tables. The result? Two people now sit at the larger tables and it takes the typical "may we join you" imposition to get a seat. Facilities are limited and the ship itself has become a training center for drew to learn the ropes and then move on to the larger ships. The end result is an aging ship with a green staff, all aspiring to move up to a better base. We were told the reason Legend wasn't being retired was its speed. Despite this somewhat dubious honor (attained by belching diesel smoke), it's time they sold this ship and moved on.

Old, rusting and in need of retirement

Cabin Review

Junior Suite
Cabin JS 8572
Cabin 8572 is located under the fitness center and specifically, under the treadmills. There is a near-constant pounding coming through the cabin ceiling from 6am to 10pm from the joggers. This, combined with the worn furnishings and rusting balcony, caused us to say "never again" to the Legend.
