Seabourn acquired its third intimate ship in 1996. Seabourn Legend, like its sisters, was built in Bremerhaven, Germany at the Schichau Seebeckwerft shipyard. Originally launched as Royal Viking Queen for the prestigious Royal Viking Line, Seabourn Legend was re-christened by Linn Brynestad, Seabourn founder Atle Brynestad’s wife. Along with their all-suite accommodations and renowned personalized service, Seabourn’s ships also garner consistent acclaim for the award-winning dining on board. Under the expert guidance of celebrity chef Charlie Palmer, Seabourn ships deliver superb cuisine that rivals the finest restaurants anywhere. From French fries to foie gras, every dish receives the expert attention of highly skilled and imaginative chefs. The finest ingredients are selected with care, perfectly prepared to your order, and served with pride. The Restaurant serves breakfast, lunch and dinner in an open-seating style that invites guests to dine where, when and with whom they choose. The Veranda Café is a more casual, indoor/outdoor venue serving lavish buffets for breakfast and luncheon. In the evening, the Veranda Café becomes Restaurant 2, alternately serving innovative tasting menus and regionally-themed dinners with table service. The Sky Grill, at the popular alfresco Sky Bar, hosts occasional themed luncheons, and dinners of grilled specialties under the stars. Festive Deck Barbecue dinners and signature Caviar in the Surf beach parties are highlights on many cruises. And guests are welcome to order from The Restaurant menu and have their dinners served, course by course, in their suites if they wish. There is never an extra charge for any dining on Seabourn.
