If you are an alcoholic, shopaholic, redneck...carnival is the cruise for you. You wont like the exotic destinations...most people never left the ports. You will like the constant 'attention Kmart shoppers' style updates pushing you to buy photos (paparazzi chase you everywhere), diamonds, booze, and everything else you could buy at Walmart if you were home.

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
There were some real misses in the formal dining room. A couple of entries were very good. The ranged from mediocre to poor. However, you could find something edible somewhere on the ship if you tried.

Geared more toward shopping (or selling) than entertaining. D list entertainment only available at night. No options, unless you wanted to attend "auction" or shopping advice.

Service and Staff

3 out of 5
Ships staff poor. Most of the staff of the outside vendors (everyone was constantly trying to sell you something) seemed more motivated to go above and beyond.

Ship Quality

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
I had a balcony stateroom. The size was reasonible. The bed was kind of hard and lumpy.

Pros: spa staff

Cons: a cross between carnie come-ons and the worst aspects of xmas at the mall

Recommends Carnival Legend? No.
