The Carnival Legend was much larger than I anticipated. There were so many places to eat-activities-all were excellent. But my best surprise and delight was the unbelievable cleanliness of our room and the comfort of the beds! I am notorious for my fussiness about linens and such on my bed. This ship was top notch. And the room steward - where she lurked we never figured out - but we seemed to have just put down the phone and she was knocking on the door. Real outstanding service. Loved having breakfast on our balcony. I would definitely do this again.

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Food was very good, large varied menu every evening. Some thought had gone into arranging our dinner partners so we always enjoyed the event. I would have liked a small courtesy copy of each evenings menu to put in a scrapbook, but, oh well.....

I would have like to have had an opportunity to actually have a hour or 1 1/2 hour session of bingo each day (or every other). One short session each day with only a couple winners was unsatisfying.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Everyone so helpful, fast and efficnient. Could not find a fault.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
This ship could not be faulted in any way - it was spotless. People were somewhere cleaning, but I never saw any. I don't know how they did it! Lots of elevators, wide variety of public rooms, places to sit and chat, etc.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Super clean, spacious and comfortable. Beds and pillows were better than mine at home. If I hadn't just bought a new mattress set I would have ordered theirs.

The best thing about our trip - we went to Alta Ha ruins. So impressive-even enjoyed to long climb to the top of the small "hill" as we could overlook the entire area. A dream come true.
Don't Miss: Alta Ha without doubt

We did the 2 oceans railroad - enjoyed the trip very much but the lunch was a joke (box with cheese crackers, bag of potato chips and old grey piece of candy) Train was lovely and scenery beautiful. Guide very knowledgeable.

We took a boat tour up river and were so impressed with the scenery, such beauty. Great Pineapple and spot we transferred from bus to boat.

Pros: Everything arranged in advane, no need to find taxis, guides, restaurants, etc.

Cons: long wait in lines in Ft. Lauderdale to get thru customs, baggage screen, etc.-but necessary
