Default More on the Legend

Just returned, really had a great time. The ship was spotlessly clean, rooms were great! Food was good allthough the shrimp were bigger than the lobster! Surely not legal size here in the US, barely two inches long.The entertainment could have been better but the Cruise Director (Jen ) was very good.The new port of call Roatan was the best stop, docked a short walk from town (Coxson Hole).Lots to see and do , the ships excursions could be got a lot cheaper ashore. Two tank dives ashore were $60, booked onboar $99. Cabs a great way to see the island. Only $60 for the whole tour, driver stopped anywhere we asked. Dissapointed the ship was only there from 8.30 to 2.30 !!! West End. a short ride from the ship was a nice little place, nice beach, diving, restuarant and bar, more local than the ritzy resort stop.
Belize ok but the ship anchors 5 miles offshore. However the tenders are large and fast so no problem if the seas are calm. The cave tubing was a great excursion.
Cozumel, rent a jeep and tour the island at your leisure. Kalua very cheap, about $6 a bottle.
Grand Cayman also a tender ride. Nice clean , friendly island, liked the Stingray City tour. Seven Mile Beach (4 miles long) very nice but be careful of the currents.
This was our second trip on the Legend this year so thats speaks for itself. Never won in the casino, but I never do, my wife did ok on the slots. Not supposed to take liquor aboard but lots do. I took a bottle of rum and it lasted me a week and saved me plenty.
Forget the self embarkation! Half the ship did it and its like a zoo. Just wait till its your time and everything is organised and easy, no fun dragging your luggage around for two hours in the morning just to get off the ship half hour earlier than the general embarkation.
Best bar on the ship, Satchmos, good atmosphere, great entertainment.
All the staff aboard were very friendly and very courteous. Three games of trivia everyday but forget the Kareoke, hopeless.
All in all it was a great vacation, looking forward to going again soon, highly reccomend it.

Thanks for this great review!

Did you notice if smoking was allowed at the aft lido bar?

Did you take the ship's Stingray City Tour?

Thanks,

Big D

Thanks Salty Dog, We are going on the Legend in a few weeks. I knew we could smoke at the aft lido bar on Pride, but that was 5 years ago. On Glory the aft bar was non-smoking 2 years ago.
