Royal Caribbean is farewelling a legend in 2017! The line will say goodbye to the Legend of the Seas in March of that year. The ship will be sold to Thomson Cruises, and enter service for that line soon after.
A fond farewell
The Legend of the Seas has been a staple in the Royal Caribbean fleet for many years, part of the family since 1995 when it was built as the first in the Vision Class of ships. She is a very well-travelled vessel, having visited and been based from Asia, Australia and New Zealand, the South Pacific, Alaska, Central America, the Caribbean, the Baltic, the Mediterranean and the Middle East.
The Legend has been a familiar sight in Australian waters recently, having spent much of 2015 and 2016 based out of Brisbane and bringing Royal Caribbean flair to Queensland. Equipped with 2 pools, a big outdoor screen, rock climbing wall, mini golf course, video game arcade and much more, it has provided memorable holidays to many.
Booked on a Legend of the Seas cruise?
Although the line has made sure the sale will cause as little disruption as possible to schedules, there will be a few changes which may affect Aussie cruisers.
All scheduled sailings on the Legend of the Seas from the 20th of February 2017 onwards will be canceled. This includes five cruises from Brisbane as well as the planned summer season of cruising from Venice.
If you're booked on a Legend of the Seas cruise which falls into that category, get in contact with your booking agent as soon as possible to find a solution, be it rebooking or refunding.
