Itinerary: Journey of Temples and Treasures

I had the pleasure of sailing aboard the Legend of the Seas on the Journey of Temples and Treasures this year. It was my first Royal Caribbean cruise and I was truly impressed.

Traffic flow: The flow throughout the ship was smooth and easily maneuverable. The only exception was when leaving the show room and navigating toward the dining room. It was impossible to travel indoors so we accommodated this problem by walking out the doors and along the outside deck of the ship.

Quality of Food: I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food. Only once in 21 days did I feel my dinner could have been of better quality as I had an extremely tough steak. I was disappointed in the deserts because most had a moose type texture. The low calorie desserts were fabulous and even being the sugar junkie I am I preferred them most of the time. Bread was to die for. Every day, for 21 days, different, inventive breads. Some we longed to have again and found ourselves hunting them down in the buffet lines. Cold soups were incredible as well.

Service: For a line that is not considered a premium cruise line they do a pretty good imitation of being one. Our Cabin steward was great as well as our waiter. Perhaps the staff around the pool could have been more involved or available for those relaxing in that area. The public rooms were spacious and comfortable with enough quiet corners for a private moment with a book.

Ship: The solarium was my favorite spot of any ship I have ever sailed on. I still think of that place months after we sailed. I will take every opportunity I can to sail on a ship with such a place.

Activities: There were so many things to do I almost felt like I had to miss something to do something else. 21 days zero boredom.

Legend of the Sea is definitely a ship for energetic as well as the laid back passenger. The overall feel of the ship was friendly and accommodating. Even amongst themselves you could tell that the Captain of the ship had a real team atmosphere to it. I loved it.

BTW the bridge tour was the most interesting one I have even seen.
