Exotic Western Carribean-Carnival Legend

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Legend | Sail Date: Jul 06, 2014

We sailed right after the 4th of July.  This is a 7 day cruise with 4 stops.  The stops are why we decided to do this cruise and they did not disappoint.  The ship itself is very nice, however, many of the services on board were average or below.  The entertainment was not the quality that we have seen on other cruises.  Also, there were not many evening shows.  The food was average.  We had a problem with our room TV the first day and had to report it over 10 times before we were finally told on day 4 that it was not only our room, but several and there was nothing to do about.  That is fine, but when we asked about a credit to our account to this, we were told sorry. 

 

I did use the spa this time, which is only the second time I have used it in over 9 cruises.  That was really a great treat, but it can get pricy.  We had a balcony room and I really did love it, but we did not use it as much as we thought.  They do allow smoking on the balconies and if you are not a smoker, you will probably experience smoke when you are out there. 

 

Our 14 year old son used the Circle C for teens and he did enjoy a few of the activities, but found that alot of the time he preferred to just hang out with us.

 

The itinerary is the big attraction on this cruise.  These stops are all awesome.  We did scuba in Cozumel, which was awesome.  We did a shark & ray snorkel in Belize.  This excursion was very well worth the money.  We had a great time and got to touch a small shark (it is an all day excursion).  In Honduras, we did a dolphin snorkel at Anthony's Key which was beyond awesome.  If you only dream on swimming in the ocean with dolphins, that dream can come true.  There was something truly magical about this experience.  All of these excursion were booked through Carnival with the exception of Grand Cayman.  We booked that one through Cruises.com.  We have used their excusions in the past and they have always turned out even better than the cruise ships excursions.  The one we booked this time was a jet ski to stingray city and snorkel.  We had an awesome time.  I would definitely do this again.  The only problem we had is that there should have been two guides but one did not show up so we went ahead with only one.  Well, there was a problem.  My son tipped the jetski over at Stingray City and my husband had to drive the jet ski the entire time we were at Stingray City in order to pump out all the water the jet ski had taken on.  Had there been the other guide, he would have been able to do that.  Anyway I feel the guide did the best he could and so I would definitely do this again.

 

If you are looking to visit Cozumel, Belize, Honduras and Grand Cayman, this is definitely the way to go.

Carnival Cruising makes you remember how to enjoy life and just have fun!

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Legend | Sail Date: May 25, 2014

My Father of (96 yrs) enjoyed the crew and staff in the dinning room who were so kind and helpful to him.  He wants to take another Cruise as soon as possible with Carnival.  He's still happy and talking about what a beautiful ship and all the fun things to do and seeing all the activities.  His spirits are so up and feels so good to have fun.

    

My husband and I are so appreciative of how the staff  concerns that the three of us were having a good time and if we needed anything at all to let them know.  The crew and the entire staff we will always remember and the cruise goes without saying....JUST  PLAN  GREAT  FUN  AND EXCITEMENT.

     Bye for now and thanks for a most wonderful CRUISE  ON "THE LEDGEND OF THE SEA"

A time to remember!

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Legend | Sail Date: May 25, 2014

I recommend Carnival Legend to any one who is interested in having the time of their life, whether that be with your family, friends or even by yourself! The cruise was very diverse with happy people from all walks of life. The hospitality on the cruise ship and the people from the ports were fantastic! There was not a moment that I felt bored. There was so much to do. Also, did I fail to mention how tasty the food was all over the cruise. This was my first cruise and it will not be my last. Seven days was not long enough. I can't wait to plan my next carnival cruise!

Had a great time

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Legend | Sail Date: Jun 29, 2014

Much needed  relaxation.  After crusing on most of the other major cruise lines we wanted to try Carnival out.  It was a very nice ship and everyone was truly nice and very helpful.   Of the small issues that did arise,  they were very quick to respond.   Had I never been on a cruise before,  I would have been throughly impressed,  but since I knew what others offered I have to say I was a little disappointed.   Cabin was awesome.   Very spacious and great layout also.   Food in main dining was pretty good.   The buffet dining was okay. Overall my experience was disappointed as far as the carnival cruise lines goes, I wood definitely prefer to spend a few dollars more and sail with Royal Caribbean as the differences are so great they are uncomparable in my opinion.   You have the same age range with maybe a few more of the older generation on Royal Caribbean then you do Carnival and as far as kids go I would say its almost equal.   Both ships have alot of activities for the kids  but I think Royal Caribbean has Carnival beat there also.     In my opinion,  I prefer in this order: Princess Cruise lines, Royal Caribbean, Norwegian Cruise lines,  then Carnival.   All are very good,  I have cruised on each of these some multiple times, but for the money my favorites are Princess and Royal Caribbean.   I hope this helps some Enjoy whatever cruise line you decide to take.

salad bar is excellent--room service is awesome; stay away from the art shows and the jewelry store!! the evening shows are very good...and not overcrowded! the "anytime seating" for dinner was great! didn't feel pushed into a schedule--will do this again.

Go to the Serenity Bar, it's by far one of the most relaxing aspects of the ship.

Enjoy the serenity pool area for 21 and over.
