We chose this cruise because we had not been to any of the places on the itinerary. We stayed 2 nights in Brisbane a lovely city. We went on a river cruise to the Lone Pine Kaola Sanctuary, had a photo with a Koala, But a lot more animals to see there and displays. The day of departure told to be there at 11am to check in and by 12 noon we were on board and settling in. The ship is one of RC smaller type, but as always the first day we had a good look around and get to know the ship. Our inside cabin was conveniently situated on deck eight near midship. It was adequate for us with plenty of storage, comfortable very large bed, small bathroom and shower. We were on my time dining in the main restaurant and on the first night the main maitre d' Gave us a mavellous situated table for 2, which we had reserved every night of the cruise courtesy of the maitre d'. Our first excursion was from Airlee Beach to the Great Barrier Reef by catamaran which over 2 hours there and back. But the worst of it was the sea conditions very very rough most of the passengers were sea sick and very uncomfortable for the whole of the journey there and back. But the pontoon on the GBR was excellent, scuba diving, snorkelling , semi submersible boat and underwater viewing area. If anybody is going there I would advise them to take the trip to the GBR from Cairns, not as far to get to and better sea conditions. Then on Cairns were we took the excursion to Karunda Rainforest Village this was another worthwhile trip. Next stop was Darwin were we just had a stroll round the town, beautiful place. We sailed then to Bali, Indonesia were we shared a taxi to the town of Kudu. Traffic was chaotic and dangerous but we finally got there. Not impressed at all! The town was very dirty, seedy, and not pleasant to walk around . The only good things about it was the beaches. Also whilst we were strolling on the beach we came across a cremation of a body on the beach and a funeral courtage. Not the most pleasant of things to see whilst on holiday! Another point I most inform you about Bali is that the ship had to tender everyone to the Cruise Terminal. We waited over 2 hours to get onto a tender and arrive onto Bali at about 11.30am. Also on the way back it took us 40 minutes to sail to the ship and then over half hour for the tender to manoeuvre and tie up along side the ship. Next stop Kota Kinabula Malaysia took excursion to a wildlife sanctuary in the rainforest, another highly recommend trip. More days at sea then to the Phillipines not much to say about there. Finished the cruise in Hong Kong, spent 2 fabulous nights there . I think I had said enough but as a last comment I have just heard that RC are selling the Legend of the Seas to Thomson cruises, RCs lose, Thomsons gain.

Part of our bucket list.

But a lot more animals to see there and displays.

The day of departure told to be there at 11am to check in and by 12 noon we were on board and settling in.

The ship is one of RC smaller type, but as always the first day we had a good look around and get to know the ship.

Our inside cabin was conveniently situated on deck eight near midship. It was adequate for us with plenty of storage, comfortable very large bed, small bathroom and shower.
