Carnival Legend

June 2014 - Carnival Legend to Caribbean - Western

Had a great time

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.

JamesTurner's Tips

Tampa, Florida - Best port I have ever seen. so much to do while waiting for ship to be able embark. love it, very efficient staffing from the cruise line to Tampa Police and US Customs.
Mahogany Bay, Roatan, Bay Islands, Honduras - Enjoy the beautiful beach and zipline. use caution at all ports but this one in particular if you take a tour. Remove most of your jewelry and lock in safe so you don't draw attention to yourself.
Cozumel, Mexico - If you just want to see the city's sites, hire a taxi usually $20 per person about 2 hours long gets a great tour without paying crazy fees on ship. if you disembark early you have plenty of time to still shop. Don't take the tours they are trying to sell you at the port, sometimes these are the same but not always.
Belize City, Belize - If you just want to see the city's sites, hire a taxi usually $20 per person about 2 hours long gets a great tour without paying crazy fees on ship. if you disembark early you have plenty of time to still shop. Don't take the tours they are trying to sell you at the port, sometimes these are the same but not always.
George Town, Grand Cayman - If you just want to see the city's sites, hire a taxi usually $20 per person about 2 hours long gets a great tour without paying crazy fees on ship. if you disembark early you have plenty of time to still shop. Don't take the tours they are trying to sell you at the port, sometimes these are the same but not always.
