We just finished our first cruise on the Carnival Legend. All we can do is rave about our experience. WOW! From the first moment we set foot on the ship all the staff were very gracious and helpful and the service everywhere was excellent. We chose not to do the more popular stuff such as the casino, pools, hottubs, or bars/lounges, and there was still plenty for us to do. We relaxed in a quiet spot on deck in the lounge chairs, took lots of naps (I know, I know, but we have 5 kids age 9 and under and don't get to do that much at home!), watched the shows - which were wonderful - and spent quality time together. The food was much better than expected, and we did each gain 5 lbs, but what fabulous food and service! All the ports of call were fabulous, and we can't wait to go on another cruise.

Pros: Food, service, ports, EVERYTHING!!

Cons: Nothing!

Recommends Carnival Legend? Yes!

Ship Quality
We thought the ship was beautiful, and even with 2500 guests on board for a week, the place was always spotless.
Food and Dining
Fantastic!! We chose open dining where we could eat whenever and with whomever we chose. We ate with others a few times, and ate alone most of the time (another thing we don't get to do much of). All the food was absolutely delicious and the presentation was so beautiful. We're going to look for a few of the recipes that we loved so we can make them at home. We also ate at the specialty restaurant the 2nd night and the service and food there was excellent, too!
Cabin / Stateroom
We had a balcony room which we loved. The room was always spotless and we loved the towel animals every night. The bed was so comfortable!
Service and Staff
Everyone was just amazing! We were surprised to see that when we got off the ship, more people were getting back on just a few hours later for another cruise. (We had a late flight and hung around the area). Even with new people to serve every week, the staff treated us as if we were their first customers and that they were always so happy to see us.
There were lots of activities that we didn't go to, but those that we did were well planned and excellent. The evening shows were great!
Cozumel, Mexico
Beautiful, clear water! I didn't like all the people trying to sell us stuff all the time.
Don't Miss: Scuba Diving!
Belize City, Belize
Traffic is crazy here. I was glad that I didn't have to drive....
Don't Miss: Cave Tubing - So Much FUN!
George Town, Grand Cayman
People drive on the left instead of the right, be careful if you rent a car. Very fun Port.
Don't Miss: We did the Sting Ray City and Snorkeling Tour. AWESOME!!
Coxen Hole, Roatan, Bay Islands, Honduras
Beautiful island!
Don't Miss: Canopy Zip Line Tour
