Review SummaryThis was my first cruise, and wont be my last!! I really wasnt sure of what to expect, but this cruise indeed exceeded my expectations in almost every way. It didnt hurt that we had spectacular weather -- sun-filled days and moonlit nights and calm seas, and a great Western Caribbean itinerary for our seven night cruise on the Carnival Legend .
We booked through (after I had searched several cruises on-line), and selected the Carnival Legend sailing out of Tampa based upon our departure date, the itinerary, and availability of flights from Boston to our embarkation port on a busy school vacation week!
Once we had booked, I followed all of the Carnival site directions to pre-register, set up our Sail and Sign Accounts, etc and this truly made things easy for debarkation. recommended that we simply take a cab from the Tampa Airport to the Port, as it is a short ride , there is a flat rate of $22 per cab versus a per person charge if we opted for Carnival transfersgreat advice!
I loved the Fun Day at Sea to begin and end the week it gave us a great way to learn our way around the ship, and find everything! During those days we lounged by the pool, worked out in the gym, and participated in a one mile On Deck for a Cure walk to raise money for Breast Cancer. We also enjoyed the big on deck party on Thursday evening!
Ports of Call
Don't Miss: In case you couldn't guess...Tabyana Beach Club!
Don't Miss: Snorkeling on the Barrier Reef was fabulous!! The private island was also a real treat!
Pros: Dining Room food and Wait Staff
Cons: Wish a few of the lounges with live music were non-smoking
