I'm interested in this information also. I know the Legend went into drydock but I'm not sure if it's for a refurbish.

We are sailing her in February 2006 and hope that she is undergoing a refurbish.

Anyone out there know the status?

She should have just come out of drydock in the last few weeks, prior to going to Europe.

Just a side note, for the most part she was in very good condition in December for a 10 year old ship!

Hi All,
We were on the Legend TA from Ft. Lauderdale to Lisbon April 10th to 20th. Just after Arrival in Lisbon she went into Drydock in Portugal. Mainwork to be completed was the adding of a Latte-Tudes, the remodeling of the Windjammer, new carpets, etc.

She made her first Cruise after Drydock on May 3rd from Southampton and will be sailing from Southamton all Summer. Hope we will see some pics/infos from anyone sailing on her.

However, she was in good condition for a 10 year old Girl. Not as sparkling as a Radiance Class-Ship, but in good condition.

Cheers,
Phil

She is definitely just gotten out of dry dock. We sailed on her in March, second to the last cruise before she went in for her refit. There were some areas of the ship that were in need of repair we found out. Wish we would have waited until after the refit to sail on her.
BTW-We had booked over a year a head of sailing and only reason we did is that RCI told us that she would have already been in dry dock before our sailing. Guess the schedule was set back a bit. Unfortunately for us.

But the great thing about her is her crew, she has one of the best crews afloat.
Enjoy!

Compared to some other lines, Rccl does a great job of a refurb/drydock schedule, if you follow a ship it is about a 2 1/2 year rotation for dry dock, which is pretty good!

We also took Legend on March 17 (Hawaii to Ensenada). We had a cabin on deck 2. There was a leak in the ceiling near the aft elevator that looked rather tacky with a container in the middle of the floor. Our cabin was great for sleeping but needed updating. Alot of the dinner food was not to our liking because it had too much salt for my taste. We made the mistake of getting a table for 2--which meant we were the last people served every night. Ended up eating at buffets. We did have the best cabin steward ever on a cruise who made up for everything lacking in the dining room. We are looking forward to sailing Jewel in October. It will be nice to be on a newer ship with more dining options.

I am also looking for information on LOS. Will be sailing Jan 14th 2006. Staying in GS 8008. Would like to hear from anyone familiar with this ship and particularly these suites. Thanks!

We actually had booked 8008 for our cruise in March/April, then DH decided he wanted the exact same GS we had last time so we switched over to 8012. Nice cabins although I am sure they shrunk a bit since we were last in them in 2001. lol I had just remembered them being larger.
But they are very comfortable with lots of space and a very nice bathroom, although there isn't a jacuzzi tub.

The only thing we were really disappointed in where the amenities in the GS this time. There were very few to speak of which was a great disappointment to us. In 2001 the list was extensive, but upon checking, I was told that they have revamped their suite perks on this class of ship. Revamped must have meant taken away, as there just weren't many at all compared to before, or other lines we have sailed on in full suites.

We sailed on LOS from Southampton May 7th this year. Im not sure what was done on the refit. The seating in our cabin could have done with a refurbish. It was badly worn and had cigarette burns on it. That was really the only major fault on what was a fantastic cruise.

TCPA – We are sailing with you in Jan. 2006. We are in an aft cabin – 7132. We have not been on the Legend yet – but sailed the Splendor Jan. 2004, and I understand the ships are similar.

Default Refit

Returned from Legend of the Seas Cruise 1 week ago.

The refit was New Carpets in most of the Restraunts and Bars, new furniture in most public areas, new Matresses in most Cabins.

Change of on board currency to £'s, and complete non-smoking in all inside areas of the ship to suit british market.

Smoking only allowed at rear of ship deck 10.

When I was on in May they allowed smoking in half of the Schooner Bar although they didnt enforce the rules too strictly

Why would they make this kind of change? Will it remain that way for all iteneraries? We go on LOS in March 06 and have an E. Caribbean tour.
