Carnival Legend

April 2013 - Carnival Legend to Transatlantic

GO, you will be glad you did!!

this was a much needed escape!! we opted to turn off phones, leave computers behind, and just relax and enjoy ourselves and each other--we were not disappointed! although there were plenty of options to stay connected via internet and phones, we did not--knowing if we were really needed, there were ways to be contacted. there were days we did not leave the stateroom--we enjoyed room service. my husband read shogun aloud to me cover to cover--we finished the book in 9 days and had the remaining week still to enjoy exploring the ship more. we met some wonderful people in the common areas that i hope we cruise with again later. the casino was fun--and the machines not quite as tight as i expected (based on previous cruise ship casinos). i do wish that since a players benefit is free drinks after a certain amount of play that the casino would provide more staff at they point that many of the players achieved this---this caused a good deal of irritability for both the players and the staff that was unnecessary---if it is not a benefit you wish to offer--then don't--but don't advertise this and then make it difficult....no need. the ship was immaculate--staff was constantly cleaning and shining--i really appreciate this. the spa services were adequate, expensive, but adequate. the morning stretch is usually my favorite way to start the day--but it was so crowded that i gave up going after three days--i did hear that they moved to another spot that was larger finally, but i did not go back to find out. the size of the ship is perfect--large enough to be able to move around, but small enough to feel cozy and generate meeting people. i would suggest that anyone can enjoy a trip like this one---make it what they need it to be. i highly recommend it--my only regret was that we did not continue on the 12 day med trip that was next!!

dak's Tips

Tampa, Florida - the romance package at waterway marriott is aa great way to start the trip!! staff there was wonderful--includes champagne, straawberries, breakfast (in the room if you like), and late checkout at 2pm--only a couple blocks from the ship--great place to stay.
Carnival Legend 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.
