We are looking at a 2014 cruise for our 25th 2anniversary and it looks like the Legend is coming back to Florida. I know it is an older smaller Vision ship. I'm been on a couple of Vision class ships and it seems to me that how they look is somewhat dependent of the latest dry dock. Does anyone know if Legend will have a dry dock before returning to Florida and if so what they will be doing to her?

Any other information of Legend is appreciated. I tried to search past posts and couldn't find much.

Yes, I think Legend is going to the dry dock early next year.

Legend is going back to Florida in 2014? Interesting. Where did you get this piece of news?

Legend Of The Seas is my favourite ship. Been on her three times, I like the Vision class ships and hope they don't make many changes. I see the Grandeur is going to have a complete makeover and the addition of a big screen on the pool deck I so hope they don't put one of those horrors on the Legend.

We were on Rhapsody after the addition of the big screen near the pool. Like you, I was not looking forward to the big screen. However, I found it much less intrusive than I expected. The volume was not loud during the day, plus we spent most of the time on deck in the Solarium where you could not see or hear the big screen.

Good to hear that you found the big screen not intrusive. I had visions of loud commercials and noise !!
Perhaps I need to go with the flow and give it a try, I love the solarium too.

We were on Splendour in May which no has the large screen near the pool. It wasn't in operation all that much and we didn't find it annoying.

As sort of a hobby, I follow all the cruise liners that I have sailed with, via MarineTraffic.com. I note that a couple of weeks ago, the Legend of the Seas spent over a week in the Far East Russian port of Vladivostok. Anybody know if this was for refurbishment of some kind?

Don't know for sure why Legend would be in Vladivostok for a week, but her major refurbishment is scheduled for Feb 2013. Based on her schedule, the refurbishment appears to be in Singapore.

Lessons learned from last cruise for next:
1. Passport - I promise I will never leave home without it again!
2. Peanut M&M's - Do you know how much they cost in the ship's store???
3. Money, lots and lots of money - Need more money!
4. Heck with the rest of the list, just bring lots of money!

I'm glad to see that the Legend will get some great enhancements. I like the specialty dining enhancements very much! Just booked her for a Western Med cruise for August 2013. We sailed on the Splendour 2 years ago and like the Vista size ships very much.

We've booked her for Dec. 2013 for the southern caribbean out of PEV. Nice not to have to fly to SJU to visit some of our favorite ports. Glad she's being refurbished with a D lounge. We enjoy watching the Sunday football games at the pool on the big screen, so we are happy about that too. We'll make our D+ status on this sailing. Yeah!!
