Great destinations, but things to due on the ship were lacking. We missed Grand Cayman due to winds, though only got a 1% refund for missing 1/4 stops.

Food and Dining

1 out of 5
Food was very bland and unseasoned. Be it buffet or seated dining, all the food had little flavor leaving us rarely finishing anything we got. Also the seated dining took 30-40 minutes for the meal to come and an additional 15-20 for dessert, with everything appearing to be bulk pre-made meals.

Great port excurions, but very little to do on ship other than eat tasteless food.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Very nice and open staff kept staying on ship interesting.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Pretty, new looking ship. The layout was pretty confusing leaving us searching for things that were hard to find since they were closed or changed. Even up to the last day we found things walking around that we didn't know were there because they were usually closed before when we walked past. It was also a journey every night to find out room, maybe after another trip on this ship it'll be easy, but directions weren't very clear for first timers.

Cabin / Stateroom

Rooms and balconies seemed pretty typical.

Very nice port with many things to do. This place has gorgeous waters to swim, snorkel, or scuba in, along with nice excursions to Mayan ruins.
Don't Miss: Beach and Mayan ruins
5 out of 5
Best port on our trip, though cannot compare to Grand Cayman. This place has beautiful waters as well as lush tropical inlands to see. We definitely wished we had more time at this stop.
Don't Miss: Beach and Botanical Gardens

Great excursions, but the city itself didn't seem the safest to just walk around in on your own.
Don't Miss: Mayan ruins and river boat trip

Pros: Getting off at the ports

Cons: Food and dining

Recommends Carnival Legend? No.
