Carnival Legend

May 2017 - Carnival Legend to Alaska - Inside Passage

Great Boat, Great Ports, Great Dining Service

We have cruised with Carnival over 10 times (I have lost count!) and this is one of the top 3 cruises we have taken. The boat was beautiful and well maintained. The food was better with more variety than other boats. The whole vibe was different - much more laid back and easy going. Not as much loud music and partying. We enjoy both atmospheres, but this was a nice change. Our wait staff at dinner was THE BEST we've ever had!!! From Susana (hostess) to Anthony and Roman (waiters) they made our whole experience one to remember. The ports were great and we booked 3 excursions through Carnival (our first time doing this - I usually use outside companies), and they were all amazing!

Carnival Dream

December 2015 - Carnival Dream to Caribbean - Western

Very nice boat, no perks for platinum, lazy service

The Carnival Dream is a large, new, spacious boat! It was very clean and had plenty of room for all passengers. The only time things were crowded were boarding and eating on Lido deck. The rest of the time there were plenty of deck chairs, small waits for your time dining and fast service at the bars and coffee bars. The boat was beautifully decorated for Christmas and there were lots of celebratory options for the holiday. However, there were a few things that are making me reconsider traveling with Carnival again. I am a Platinum member which used to get us several perks. This trip the only perk we receive was the quick check in (priority lounge, luggage first and no lines).  I usually receive free drinks, free gifts in my cabin and priority getting on/off the boat. None of that happened. In fact our cabin steward was the WORST we have ever had! He only cleaned our room once per day, while we were at dinner. The rest of the time, we had no towels and had to call for everything. When I say call, I mean call the cabin steward line 4 to 5 times, go out in the hallway and look for someone and then call again several times before we got what we needed. This level of service is unusual because we have always been well taken care of on Carnival. It makes me think why not switch cruise lines because it doesn't matter that we have cruised with them so many times. We were treated worse than a first time cruiser.

angelbrowntn's Tips

Mahogany Bay, Roatan, Bay Islands, Honduras - We always use Island Marketing Limited for excursions. The pro is they are cheaper, more extensive (see more) and more personal. The con is they are not allowed in the cruise port and you have to walk up and down a huge hill to meet your guides. They are worth it!
Cozumel, Mexico - We used Island Marketing Limited again and they were great!
