Carnival Legend Exotic WesternCaribbean

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Legend | Sail Date: May 11, 2014

My Son and I took a cruise on the Carnival Legend on May 11th for 7 days. We had a Ocean Suite which was very small with two single Beds small enough for a five year old Child.In front of the Bed's was a picture of a woman with a Sword trying to stab a Deer.So much for a Ocean Suite.

The Service on the Ship was excellent, the Food was superb, especially the Steakhouse, that we visited twice. The emploees there are fantastic, they  make everything so special for everybody and since it was my Birthday on May 15th I became a special lactose free Cake which made me very happy.

My Son William and I had a great time on this Cruise, except the small cabin and the disgusting picture on the wall.            Sincerely, Ms. A Sokes

Carnival Legend

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Legend | Sail Date: May 11, 2014

We decided to cruise Carnival because of a great price for a balcony stateroom even though I felt that Carnival had a tarnished reputation.  The Legend is in great shape with a marvelous crew and staff.  The ports of call were great although Roatan Honduras (Carnivals Island retreat) you don't get to experience the Honduras, only some shopping and beach swimming.  There is the dolphin experience, but it is very expensive.  The food on board in the Truffles restaurant was very good, but not outstanding as I've found on Royal Caribbean cruises.  The ship shudders at certain speeds and isn't an issue unless you're trying to sleep and then is very noticeable.  The staff, particularly our room steward, was outstanding. Boarding and leaving the ship in Tampa was quick and streamlined.  We would definitely sail on the Legend again.

Outstanding crew

This was a better experience than other Carnivial cruises we went on. Open dining worked out great for us as we ate around 9:15 every night. The service could not have been better in dining room, stateroom or other parts of the ship. We had an oversized balcony on the right side of the ship which we used most of the time. I think the left side would have been better because of the afternoon sun made it too hot a couple of days. We were off the ship by 9:30 on the last day. I am thinking of doing this again last week in May. Make sure your soft drinks taken on the boat have no beer in cartoon. Two twelve packs of cokes were confiscated by TSA because of 2 beers. If you have a handicap tag and a wheelchair carrier or modification on you vehicle parking is free if you ask for it.

Wonderful Cruise

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Legend | Sail Date: May 04, 2014

Beautiful ship, great service from the staff and as always, on Carnival, fabulous food.  The only negative is that I didn't think the shows were as good as I have experienced in the past.  Overall, I highly recommend this cruise and Carnival Cruise Lines.,

We (four of us) are loyal Royal Carribean Platinum Members. We decided to give Carnival a chance even though rumors should have kept us away. Well...we we suprised to find that Carnival surpassed RCL in many categories and we will sail Carnival again.

 

We sailed on the Legend - employees told us they were full and that they never sail with an empty stateroom - we never experienced any cattle shuffling. Unless we were lied to, the ship handled the 2145 guests extremely well.

 

The only two disappointing categories that RCL far exceded were the entertainment in the main auditorium and the quality and type of choices for main dining.

 

Entertainment was aweful with no shows that rivaled RCL.

 

The dining experience was just medium - no WOW factor.

 

But like I said...we will sail Carnival again.

 

One last point - management take note - whoever puts Grenada, Barbados, Costa Rico & Domincan Republic together or some assemblance of that will get out business for our next cruise and we do two a year. If all four can't be done then Grand Cayman will work!

Popular Tips for Carnival Legend


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.
