The Seabourn Legend: Room Service

Room service aboard the Seabourn Legend was pretty excellent. There was a room service menu, but we also found out that you could order pretty much whatever you wanted. Breakfast could be ordered by hanging a breakfast order on your door, and when they arrived, they turned our coffee table into a dining table, then set it with linens and silverware. Any other time, room service was speedy, and presented on a tray that had linens and silverware. We were also really ridiculous with the breakfast ordering. The order form that you hung on the door had many, many items on it, but we would just write in what we wanted if it was not on the list and it would always arrive with the rest of the items.

The display of breakfast in the room.
Fresh Mango, Cheese Omelette and Bacon and Eggs Benedict.

Lamb Chops, Poached Eggs and Bacon
After we discovered these tender little lamb chops, we ordered them every day for breakfast.

Penne Bolognese
They do pasta really well on Seabourn. The pasta was a nice, chewy al dente and the sauce was rich and meaty.

Bacon Cheese Burger with Fries
It's rare to have an equally good burger as the fries, or vice versa. But both parts of this meal were delicious. We hear that the burgers are ground fresh from the same meat they use for the steaks and are cooked to order. The fries were out of this world. They were super crispy on the outside and soft in the middle. They were most likely double fried and almost seemed ever-so-lightly battered. Man, they were good.

We got a baguette from Patisserie Nemorin in Deshaises, Guadaloupe, in the French West Indies. We brought it back to the boat and ordered a selection of meats and cheeses to go with it while we watched movies in our room. The following 3 pictures are what we got:

Foie Gras Pate with Grapefuit
Silky and tasty.

Standard but good.

Brie, Camembert, Emmanthaler, Epoisses and Roquefort

More breakfast foods:

Scrambled Eggs and Bacon

Bagel with Lox and Cream Cheese
For some reason they were really stingy with the cream cheese, of all things. On this plate is the extra cream cheese that we ordered.

Fresh Kiwi

Fresh Mango

Cottage Cheese
Alexis had some weird craving for this.

Ham and Cheese Omelette and Bacon

Ah, caviar. We ate so much caviar we thought we were gonna get gout. We ordered a pre-dinner snack of caviar from room service and had it delivered to our stools at the bar practically every day. The caviar was served with sour cream, egg yolk, egg white, minced onions and crostini. Below is a close-up. Apparently the boat went through about 25 pounds of caviar (for 200 passengers) in 11 days.

Pizza Margherita
This was about the only thing that the Seabourn Legend did not do well. It was not that it tasted bad, it was just that it was more of an open faced quesodilla.
