Legend of the Seas

Royal Caribbean International

Legend of the Seas

Royal Caribbean International

With her thousands of windows you get the very best ocean views onboard the Legend of the Seas, the 2000 passenger strong Vision Class ship from Royal Caribbean International.

The Legend of the Seas is one of Royal Caribbean's Vision Class ships, and this year its elegant profile will be seen all over the world - from the Mediterranean to the Caribbean. The ship's design is one of the first things that strikes passengers as they board the liner, from its seven deck high atrium to the wide decks and the extensive use of glass to create a light and airy feel that has ensured this ship's success and popularity.

Destinations and Itineraries

Up until the end of October, the ship tours the ancient ports of the Mediterranean on a series of seven night cruises between Rome, Genoa and Marseilles. Typically the ship departs from Civitavecchia, the port for Rome, and heads for the northern Italian port of Genoa, close to the millionaire's playground of Portofino, and the fashion capital of the world, Milan.

The next stop is the French port of Marseilles, from where passengers can visit the vineyards and lavender fields of Provence before the ship then heads to Barcelona, the Catalan capital, famed for its Gaudi cathedral. The ship then heads to the Balearic island of Majorca and back to the Spanish mainland for Valencia, before returning to Civitavecchia. Passengers can pick up and begin their cruise at different ports en route. Other Mediterranean cruises take in the Greek islands of Rhodes and Santorini, the Turkish resorts of Bodrum, and the ancient maritime republic of Venice.

At the end of October the ship quits the Mediterranean and heads across the Atlantic on a 13 night cruise that takes the Legend of the Seas to its new home in Fort Lauderdale in Florida. From there the ship spends the winter cruising the Caribbean following three different itineraries that each take in different islands.

Set sail for faraway shores and sun-drenched ports onboard the Legend of the Seas, a firm family favourite in the Royal Caribbean fleet.

On Board

Out on deck there are two swimming pools, four hot tubs and a raft of leisure facilities and activities. There is an 18-hole miniature golf course that reproduces the topography of an actual golf course to scale, a jogging track, a gym and extensive fitness centre which offers aerobics and yoga. More relaxed distractions include a sauna and a steam room and a health spa. Royal Caribbean also takes great pride in their children’s and family facilities which includes the Adventure Ocean programme.

Staterooms

Staterooms

Built in 1995 and refitted in 2000, the Legend of the Seas was refurbished again this year to maintain the high standards that this cruise line has earned its reputation for. This is a large ship with 902 cabins. Only 231 have a balcony but another 344 have an ocean view - leaving 327 for the inside of the ship. Staterooms are tastefully decorated and medium sized, with plenty of storage space, a sitting area and compact bathrooms. Twin beds convert to become a double. All cabins have a hair dryer, TV, fridge and a safe. Larger options are available, including the royal suites with private balconies. Creature comforts in the Royal suites extend to whirlpool tubs in the bathrooms and grand pianos. The maximum number of passengers the ship can carry is 2,076 and combined with the 723 crew, this creates a ratio of one crew member for every 2.5 passengers when all the cabins have double occupancy.

Dining

Dining

Romeo and Juliet, the main dining room on the ship, is split into two levels with glass walls offering panoramic views of the ocean as well as good food and friendly service. All passengers can be catered for in two sittings but some select one of the alternative dining options on board. As with every Royal Caribbean ship there is a Windjammer cafe serving quick snacks or informal meals, a coffee bar serving speciality coffees and pastries, and a Ben & Jerry's ice cream parlour for a special treat. The dress code on board is casual and comfortable during the day and smart casual in the evenings. Each cruise on the Legend of the Seas usually includes at least one formal night, to which gentlemen are expected to wear a dark suit or dinner suit and ladies a cocktail dress. After dinner, passengers head to the That's Entertainment Theatre, for spectacular shows and comedy. Alternative entertainment is provided in the Anchors Aweigh Lounge with cabaret style shows and dancing. There is no cinema on board but there is a library and a casino as well as the Viking Crown Lounge and Nightclub, the champagne terrace, and the Schooner Bar.
