LEGEND OF THE SEAS FACTS

Description
MS Legend of the Seas is one of Royal Caribbean’s first and oldest cruise ships. As such, it is also the most-traveled ship in the entire Royal Caribbean fleet; currently, its career spans 14 long years of diverse tours all over the world. What it is most well-known for are the 17 different grades of accommodation that travelers are allowed to choose from so they can cruise in the style they prefer.

Destinations
Since 2009, the Legend of the Seas has been traveling around Asia all year long. It visits Japan, China, and Korea.

History
The Legend of the Seas was built by Chantiers de l'Atlantique of Saint-Nazaire, France. It was completed and launched in September 1994. Being one of Royal Caribbean’s oldest cruise ships, the Legend of the Seas’ maiden voyage was way back in May of 1995. Featuring a distinct pale blue and turquoise color scheme, it was designed to be part of Royal Caribbean’s Vision class, which include mid-sized ships. During its 14-year career, it has seen the shores of Asia, Australia, Alaska, New Zealand, Central America, and the Middle East. It has cruised around the Mediterranean, the Baltic, the South Pacific, and the Caribbean.

Dining
The central dining area is a two-deck room called Romeo and Juliet, which serves excellent breakfast, lunch, and dinner, with several unique menu options alongside the usual selections. The dining area is quite a sight with its grand staircase and a dazzling chandelier. The popular daytime eating destination, however, is the nautical-style Windjammer Café, which offers a breathtaking panoramic view of the ocean on three sides. The Windjammer is known for its different food stations so guests can choose what they’re in the mood for; this dining style definitely shortens queuing time. Snacks are best enjoyed at the Solarium café, which offers the usual burgers, hotdogs, and pizza. The Latte-tudes café serves specialty coffee, and there is a Ben & Jerry’s station just outside Windjammer.

Entertainment
There are four themed bars onboard to meet every nighttime fancy guests may have. Two specifically top the list, namely the wood-themed nautical-style Schooner Bar and the Art Deco themed Anchors Aweigh. The Legend of the Seas also offers a dance center, a disco, and a piano bar for those who love music and dancing. Several shopping centers are also available onboard. Sports lovers can spend their time on the golf course, the rock-climbing wall, or any one of the two pools on the ship.

For quieter pastimes, guests can go to the wood paneled library where there is quite an impressive collection of books. And after a tiring day, guests can relax and rejuvenate at the spa and fitness center. They can also catch a movie or show at the cinema and at the That’s Entertainment theater. During their free time, they can lounge at the beautifully designed atrium or at the Viking Crown Lounge with its twinkling star lights reflecting in its panoramic windows. Kids and teens can are also catered for with a range of activities including games on the pool or on the deck, or having treasure hunts.

Cabins
The Legend of the Seas offers 17 different accommodation categories. These break down into three-berth cabins, four-berth cabins, twin insides, sea view cabins or outsides, balconied staterooms, and suites.
