S.S. Legacy has 43 cabins ranging in size from 110 to 600 square feet. None have balconies but all have at least one window (most of which can be partially opened), and two have roped off spaces on the outdoor promenade for the exclusive use of cruisers staying in those cabins.

Rooms are relatively comfortable though some on Deck 1 are a bit tight and laid out in a way that makes it difficult to open either the bathroom door or drawer all the way. The decor and furnishings are dated, but the ship is supposed to invoke a yesteryear vibe, which allows it to get away with a less modern look. (Bathrooms, in particular, could use an update).

All rooms come with fixed twin, double or queen beds, or twin beds that can be pushed together to form a queen; one or two midsized dressers with three drawers (varying in width depending on the room); and an armoire with a couple of drawers at the bottom and plenty of hanging space (though not a lot of hangers). There's also a little space at the top of the armoire if you push the life jackets as far to the side as they'll go. Inside is also a safe, hair dryer and two sets of binoculars for use on the ship (or during excursions).

Each room has a TV with built-in DVD player (you'll find a DVD library in the Lounge). A speaker system in the room can be used to listen to the evening lectures if you don't want to attend in person.

Above the beds are two reading lights, and there's usually one outlet (in our case, an extension cord with an outlet) by the bed and another by the sink. Outlets are 110V.

Beds all have two built-in drawers though, depending on the configuration of the room, you might not be able to use all the drawers. (To open any drawer in the room, you'll need to lift up first and then pull out.) In our Admiral room, we had the two twin beds separated, which pushed one of the beds right next to the armoire making its drawers inaccessible. There's also space underneath the beds, perfect for stowing empty suitcases.

Rooms have limited hanging space outside the closets. Some have hooks only on the inside of the bathroom door; others have a coat hook on the wall in the main room.

In a handful of cabins, the sink is in the main room, next to the bathroom door. There's a glass dispenser of liquid soap and a tiny amount of counter space for bath amenities. The bathroom features a toilet and shower, as well as one or two wooden shelves. In the shower, you'll find wall-mounted dispensers of shampoo, conditioner and bath gel. Shower curtains are heavy plastic so they don't stick to you, and showerheads can be handheld or put into a holder on the wall. Water pressure and temperature were always excellent.

There are no connecting cabins, and just a few that can fit three or four people.
Master: Four rooms fall into the Master cabin category (six starting April 2019), all measuring about 110 square feet. All have a fixed double bed (situated in a way that makes opening the bathroom door difficult). The two on Deck 1 can be sold as single or double capacity rooms.

Commander: The bulk of the cabins on S.S. Legacy fall into the Commander category; there are 26 of them, all between 127 and 147 square feet. Rooms come in fixed queen, double or twin bed varieties.

Captain: There are four Captain cabins, all on Deck 2, between 134 and 147 square feet and featuring either twin beds or a fixed queen.

Admiral: Six cabins fall into the Admiral category and range in size from 130 to 297 square feet. Bed configurations can be fixed queen, fixed twin beds or two twins that can convert to a queen. There is room for a third (trundle) bed in two of the rooms (101 and 102). Two of these cabins (rooms 309 and 310) include a roped-off, awning-covered section right outside the door that serves as a private outdoor sitting area. Room 309 is also wheelchair accessible. Some of these rooms have sinks in the main cabin.

Junior Commodore: The two Junior Commodore cabins, both on Deck 3, are 222 square feet in size and feature wraparound view windows. However, as they're located right where the Deck 3 viewing area is located, they do not allow for much privacy when the curtains are open. The rooms have a fixed queen bed and also feature a mini-fridge.

Owner's Suite: The largest cabin onboard is the 600-square-foot Owner's Suite located on Deck 4, right behind the Bridge. The cabin features a 300-square-foot master bedroom with king-sized bed and bathroom with Jacuzzi tub and shower. The 300-square-foot sitting area has a sofa bed (for third and fourth passengers), a wet bar, table with seating for four, media center and mini-fridge.
