7 Night Exotic Western Caribbean (Tampa Roundtrip)
Sail Date: June 13, 2010
Ship: Carnival Legend
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Family (older children)
Reviewed: 7 years ago
The Legend is a very nice ship, but the decor is a bit over the top. Fastest elevators we've ever encountered on a cruise! Stateroom was very nice, loved the balcony. We missed the more thorough port information that NCL provided on our previous cruises. The daily newsletter on the Legend gave a complete rundown of the shipboard activities for each day, but no info on the daily port of call (area, population, climaate, history, points of interest, etc.)

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Don't really care for the set dining times; prefer the free-style dining on NCL. Food was very good with just a couple of exceptions. Most every time we tried to get drinks at the Unicorn Cafe, at least one or more of the ice machines were empty.
