Southern on the Legend or Western on the Valor, can't decide
We have cruised the Eastern twice and the Western once, all three ships were over 100,000 tons. We loved the Victory and Triumph based on service and overall great time. The Glory was to crowded in our opinion and short staffed. We could only get one drink during a show due to the amount of people. We also have slow service on the Lido deck as well. No big deal we just had to grab a drink at the bar to get started. All three trips were GREAT!!. The Valor is just as big as the Glory and we will probably have the same feelings on the number of people on board.
The Southern looks really nice and the Legend is 88,000 tons. I know this is still a large ship but it will be the smallest so far. Two days at sea going and two coming back stopping at St Maarten, St. Lucia and St. Kitts for a total of 8 days.
The Western on the Valor stopping at Belize, Roatan Island, Grand Cayman and Cozumel for a total of 7 days.
We've met the greatest people and every trip seems to get better and better.
We are looking for ANY!! comments on this trip, especially on the Legend and the ports of call.
We haven't sailed the Legend, but I'll give you my opinion anyway !
JMHO, but if you've already done the Western Caribbean (been there, done that too many times !), I think you'd enjoy the Southern route. The four sea days would do it for us! We were recently on the Sun Princess (a smaller ship, also) and it was the best cruise we've been on.
IMO, I think you would enjoy the Legend and the Southern ports.
