Legend of the Seas Review - My Royal Caribbean Cruise Adventure

As you should know by now... Wifey and I were selected to tour Legend of the Seas from Royal Caribbean International through Omy
(from my earlier entry My Royal Caribbean Cruise Adventure - Behind the scenes)


As I was brain storming about what to write for this entry...
(Check out Wifey's Post on it at http://barefootgirldaynight.blogspot.com/)
I decided to ask a few people...






What is the first thing that comes to your mind when you think of a cruise vacation?

.
.
.
.
.
.
.
.



So what were some of the answers that kept coming up??

Frankly...

These were some of the impressions I had initially...
And unfortunately these are still the impressions that most people have...

And when Wifey and I were planning for our honeymoon...
I think if I ever suggested to go on a cruise for honeymoon in Singapore..



She'd probably look like this...

BUT.... 


after our tour of Legend of the Seas we are hoping that we can BOTH be part of the 10 lucky bloggers selected to go for the Legend of the Seas 5D4N Isle of Southeast Asia Cruise!!! 
Coz we have not gone on our honeymoon yet (But we are planning to go  Marriott private beach resort in Phuket!... Phuket can be our pre-pre-honeymoon... in any case, the more the merrier!)

So the Legend of the Seas 5D4N Isle of Southeast Asia Cruise can be our Pre-Honeymoon.... and the grand prize 7D5N Western Mediterranean Fly-Cruise onboard Liberty of the Seas Worth $4800 can be our actual honeymoon haha...



So these are the reasons why Omy and Royal Caribbean should select both Wifey and I to be part of the 10 bloggers (pardon the shamelessness and self-promotion haha...)

1. If someone is looking for a review on the cruise and types in Legend of the Seas 5D4N Isle of Southeast Asia Cruise review in Google's search engine... My blog is the FIRST on the list... Let them get what they want and read about it on my blog! (For My Royal Caribbean Cruise Adventure.. My blog appears right after the official contest details site!)

2. Coz a cruise honeymoon sounds really cool!..... and when Wifey and I blog about our experience on the cruise... It can alter Singaporeans' impressions about honeymoon on a cruise... and that it can be a really wonderful honeymoon choice! 

3. Because we love FREEBIES?? Haha...

4. Do NOT separate us!!


5. PLEASE!!! Haha....

  


What Wifey and I will do if we are selected... for our honeymoon?


Make our way happily down to Singapore Cruise Centre and get a warm welcome to board Royal Caribbean International's Legend of the Seas




Take pictures at the official cruise backdrop and at the linkway...

Before we board Legend of the Seas...

Onboard... We can spend relaxing time together by enjoying the outdoor deck..  Sun-tanning and swimming at the outdoor pool..
We can also enjoy the view with wind blowing against our faces..

Even if it rains... Fret not.. We'll be relaxing at the indoor pool!.. Enjoying the Jacuzzi..

After which we will sit back and relax at the Centrum... 
Enjoy the live music from the Violinist and Pianist.. 
And have our drinks...

And if Wifey decides to shop or pamper herself at the Spa and Beauty Center...

I can be having my workout at the gym..
Jogging at the outdoor deck...


Or....


Climbing Mountains!!!

360 degrees panoramic views at 150 feet above the waves!!

Romantic Dinner for 2 next?


Romeo and Juliet Room
That's the highlight I feel...
Where couples get all dressed and dolled up for a nice dinner...
(NICE!!)
With assigned waiters who will remember your preferences and allergies for your whole trip!










The secret to why customer service is excellent onboard?...
Staff are on rolling 6-month contract...
So they have to be at their best... ALWAYS...
Which means you get to enjoy =)

To keep us entertained at night?


Broadway-style musicals!!!!


That's Entertainment Theatre
.
.
.
.
.
.
.
.
.
.
By then.. I think we would have enjoyed ourselves soooo much...
And would be so tired....
We will look forward to a good rest...


Legend of the Seas Rooms
  Though not The Royal Suite.. which has a Piano by the way!!..
Many of the rooms come with Oceanview or Balcony...
And even bathtubs!


More Romantic Times if you ask me.. Hehe...


.
.
.
.
.
.
.
.
.


Sure.. It is still very family-friendly...


Legend of the Seas - Youth Programme


Where you can "deposit" your kids with their award-winning Adventure Ocean Youth Programme... Play Room... and a non-alcohol served disco..


and


being inclusive..




It has a casino for those who enjoy it... Wheel-chair friendly places and even their room number tags include Braille characters..
Minor details go a long way!

Hi Ginsengtonic (hahaha at the name, so creative)!

Thanks for your comment the other time on my website, checked out your post when u sent me the link and I loved it!!! Your wife's one especially, so funny with the love story on the boat pics :P

Some of us just got shortlisted for the top 10, I was really honoured and surprised to be chosen! Didn't expect to win anything at all, I never win anything usually. No toto, free tissue paper, etc... Nothing!

I really thought you and your wife would be on the cruise too???? One of the funniest and most creative entries I saw. :) Hope u and your wifey will keep writing... So I can keep reading!

Love, Estelle
