Great time

Sail Date: April 29, 2007

Reviewed: 10 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

Room was great! Food was great! Service was great! Excursions were good. Be sure to go to the orientation things on the various ports. They save a lot of time and frustration when you get there. Warning: Don't count on Costa Maya for souvenirs. We did and were disappointed by prices, selection, and vendor aggression.

Pros: Lots to do with no requirement that you do any of it

Cons: A little bit of nickel and diming for onboard stuff. Not bad, but it adds up.

Recommends Carnival Legend? Yes!

Warning: Ask about the cost before you get excited about activities. $20 for bingo was not what I was expecting when I left the pool to go play.
Ship Quality
Heaven! Get a map the day you arrive or you'll be completely lost.
Food and Dining
The drinks those roving waiters offer are not free. Don't accept one and start drinking until you find out how much they cost.
Cabin / Stateroom
Bring your own clock and pads of paper. Ship doesn't provide these. Amusingly, they do provide free playing cards at the purser's desk.
Service and Staff
EVERYONE was friendly and helpful. Waiting staff, entertainment staff, infirmiry staff, pursers, casino staff, even the ship maintenance people were great.
George Town, Grand Cayman
Swimming with the sting rays isn't all that it's cracked up to be. Do it once if you want to be able to say you did, but it's really more of "stand in waist deep water and have your guide take silly pictures of you with the rays"
Belize City, Belize
MUST SEE the ruins at Altun Ha! If you can do the river excursion that teams with it, take it.
Cozumel, Mexico
Take a taxi to the Forum shops and work your way back. The shops right around the pier are not all there is.
Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico
We didn't do any exsursions. The shops were expensive and the shop keepers pushy. I literally had a panic attack from their swarming.
