Legend of the Seas

MS Legend of the Seas was the first of the Vision-class cruise ships, a class of ships built as three pairs of sister ships.

Each pair differs from the others in size and design, so the six ships do not constitute a single ship-class by the common usage of the term. The Vision-class of ships had the most number of glass windows at the time they debut hence the name.

Legend of the Seas is the most-traveled ship in the Royal Caribbean fleet, having been based in Asia, Australia and New Zealand, the South Pacific, Alaska, Central America, Caribbean, the Baltic, Mediterranean and the Middle East during her 19 year career at sea. In 2013, she underwent a $50 million refurbishment in Singapore and now boasts a host of swanky new facilities that belie her age.

Legend of the Seas will be based in Brisbane for a five-month season from December 2015. This will be her second season based out of Brisbane. At 70,000 tons, Legend of the Seas is one of the largest superliners able to navigate the Brisbane River and dock at Brisbane Cruise Terminal at Portside Wharf.
