The Legend does not have a comedy club but has excellent comedians in the main showroom, the Valor has a comedy club you need to line up for tickets for. Both have lot's of good bands and shows. I've been on the Glory the Valor's sister ship, and the Legend twice. I think the decor on the Valor looks nicer, but I prefer the layout on the Legend it's easier to get around the dining room area without going up or down decks. The Legend has this weird Urn theme. But I would choose your cruise by which ports you want to go to, and or the amount of sea days. I know that you will enjoy which ever ship you choose! Not sure about the balcony placement.
