Cruisin’ Country took place aboard Royal Caribbean’s Legend of the Seas. Natural light flooded the Vision-Class ship throughout the day, from the soaring, glass walled multi-deck atrium to the two-story main dining room. The luxury liner also offered six outstanding entertainment venues, from the grand and iconic Centrum to the laid back relaxation of the ‘Schooner Bar’ and headlining ‘That’s Entertainment’ Theatre.Read More Information
