Review of Legend Of The Seas
Launched in 1995, Legend of the Seas is the first Vision-class Royal Caribbean ship, together with Vision, Grandeur, Enchantment, Rhapsody and Splendour. The ship cost US $325 million to build and was last refurbished in 2013, with next scheduled refurbishment in 2017.
History - construction & ownership
Royal Caribbean International (RCI) is owned by Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. RCI is a cruise line brand established in Norway and currently based in Miami, Florida. As of September 2015, the line controls a 17% share of the world cruise market, with 23 cruise ships in service and other three on order. All vessels under the Royal Caribbean brand have had their names ending with "of the Seas" since 1991. Sister brands owned by Royal Caribbean Ltd. are Azamara Cruises, Celebrity Cruises, CDF Croisières de France and Pullmantur Cruises.
The 69,472-ton, 1,800-passenger Legend of the Seas is one of Royal Caribbean's older cruise liners. Travelers may think that Royal Caribbean's Legend is just like her Vision-class siblings. These comparatively medium-sized cruise ships share some common features, but together with all the usual facilities - 7-deck-high Centrum, elaborate major dining venue and Royal Caribbean's signature circular Viking Crown Lounges - the Vision-class ships are also known as the "vessels of light" as a result of effective sea views afforded by glass canopies and massive floor-to-ceiling windows. The most distinguishing feature of Legend of the Seas, however is not found onboard - it's where the ship sails. The liner is based year-round in Asia, and offers a dizzying diversity of voyages from South Korea, Japan, China and Singapore. This regional deployment creates a really international guest mix consisted of folks from China, Japan, Australia, Europe and the United States.

Dining options - Food & Drinks
The main Dining Room, Romeo and Juliet, is an elegant mix of tan and cream. Overhead, in the middle of the 2-deck room, a light fixture made of crystals and giant mirrors create a flowerlike structure. Tables are available in a variety of configurations seating from 2 to 8 people. At lunchtime, Romeo & Juliet changes into Brasserie 30, which has a salad bar and dishes from noon to 1:30 p.m. The Windjammer, located on Deck 9 forward, is Legend's nautically themed buffet. A chef at a special omelet station can make an omelet for you while you watch. The Windjammer is also a good fee-free casual dinner option. You'll find the same fare as in the dining room, but you'll have to serve yourself from the buffet. Park Cafe, situated in the adults-only Solarium, is a dining option added during the 2013 refurb. It offers free light fare throughout the day, such as sandwiches, salads, soups, carved meats, cookies and other light desserts.
