Here we go.

These were taken this morning (23 March 2013), at disembarkation, from the cruise terminal.


See the balconies just above the orange life-boats. I believe those were added during the 1 month dry-dock in Singapore. (Sembawang Shipyard)

Default Day 1 of cruise - 16 March 2013

Now, to Day 1 of the cruise. Saturday, 16 March 2013.

Picture of the Marina Bay Cruise Terminal from the taxi, as we were approaching. Two ships in port, Legend of the Seas as well as another unidentified ship from this point. Take a guess. (Shouldn't be too difficult to guess which cruise line)

The Legend OTS. The driveway up to the drop-off point at Marina Bay Cruise Center.

Default Long & slow moving queues at check in

Unfortunately, there were long lines at check-in. The lines moved slowly even though so many counters were opened. It turned out that each check-in took a long time because we had to complete many immigration forms for the various ports of call. Fortunately we were in the C&A priority queue and that moved much more quickly.

A view of the ship before we got on the gangway.

After checking in and getting our sea pass cards (remember to ask for your C&A WOW cards, they forgot to give to my parents), immigration was very smooth and we got onboard the ship at 1145hrs.

Centrum


This décor looks new.

After boarding, we walked through the Centrum and through the Schooner Bar before coming to an area where they collected our passports. This was the Schooner Bar – Progressive Trivia was held here.

Default Touchscreens

I found these touchscreen boards to be most useful to check out the Cruise Compass. However, many people touch them. They could potentially be a source of infection. So, please be ultra vigilant with hand-washing.

Although this was a school holiday week in Singapore, there were relatively few children, less than 100 under the ages of 18 apparently. Still, Adventure Ocean was fairly busy.

View of the Centrum from Deck 5. Bear in mind that the Legend of the Seas is currently the smallest ship in the RCI fleet.

Thanks for letting me know.

I've got many, many more photos and will do my best to upload them over the next couple of days.

Most happy to share with fellow Cruise Critic forum members.

Guest Relations at Deck 5. Long queues were rather common here. Try to avoid peak hours.

We were at Deck 5 and walked into the Main Dining Room. This is the view of the Deck 4 MDR area. They were serving lunch in MDR on embarkation day.

Thanks for posting your great photos. We're sailing on Splendour later this year which I believe is a sister ship of Legend and has received similar revitalization.
