The Legend of the Seas departed Dubai on March 13 on her final cruise with Royal Caribbean International, marking the end of her Royal career before her transfer to the Thomson Cruises brand under the TUI Group. She will re-launch in June as the TUI Discovery 2.
During her career she has been based in Asia, Australia and New Zealand, the South Pacific, Alaska, Central America, Caribbean, the Baltic, Mediterranean and the Middle East.
“Since its inaugural sailing, Legend of the Seas has created many wonderful memories for hundreds of thousands of guests, and we expect this successful history to continue as she transitions to Thomson Cruises,” said Richard D. Fain, chairman and chief executive officer of Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. “While she will be missed, her transition supports our objective of moderate capacity growth.”
The Legend of the Seas departed Dubai Cruise Terminal at 8pm local time, with events planned onboard to mark her last ever sailing under Royal Caribbean colors.
Legend of the Seas was in port in Dubai at the same time as the Vision of the Seas.
