For a cruise that’s as much about fun as it is about relaxation, look no further than Legend Of The Seas. Currently offering a range of trips around Asia and eastern Europe, there’s plenty to keep you occupied between stops at a number of beautiful destinations.
It was the first Vision-class cruise chip owned by Royal Carribean Cruises, with her maiden voyage taking place back in May 1995.
Amongst the ship’s most striking features are the glass walls that cover much of the boat, providing panoramic sea views to guests. And when the sun goes down, there are a range of bars, restaurants and other activities on board.
Activities and facilities
If you’re looking to relax during your time on board, then the Day Spa should fit the bill. Then there’s the open-roofed solarium pool, where you can soak up some sun and keep fit at the same time. There’s also a beauty salon and four whirlpools to enjoy.
For the fitness fanatics, there are full-sized courts for a range of sports, as well as a nine-hole miniature golf course, rock climbing wall and jogging track. There’s even an indoor fitness centre complete with weights and fitness machines.
In terms of entertainment, there’s a Casino Royale, live shows including music and theatre, and even a disco for teenagers – ideal for parents who want a bit of peace!
Other things to enjoy include an art gallery, a video arcade, an internet center and a medical center.
Accommodation on Legend Of The Seas
There are rooms on board for a range of budgets: whether you’re looking for something basic or something more luxurious, you can be sure of tasteful and comfortable surroundings. All rooms come with a seating area, luxury bedding, TV, telephone, safe, private bathroom with hairdryer and optional room service.
Interior staterooms provide the most budget-friendly (but by no means basic) option. A step up from that are the outside staterooms, which provide ocean views. Balcony suites come with a private balcony – ideal for enjoying the sun in privacy. And the suites and deluxe staterooms come with all the features we’ve mentioned, plus a larger living area, complementary concierge service, priority check-in and departure and a luggage valet service.
575 of the ship’s 902 rooms provide ocean views, and 231 come with private balconies.
