We loved this cruise, but then again we have loved all of our cruises.
The ship seemed somewhat worn but still clean. The food was better than some of our other cruises, but the entertainment was not as good (in our opinion).
I did not like that the kids were suppose to wear bracelets if they were under 11.
I think a better method should be established. First they could ask if we intend on leaving our kids in Camp Carnival (which we did not) so the bracelet wasn't necessary.
They switched the order of the ports which caused us to spend $20 on internet fees to correct an excursion booked. I understand the change, it happens. What I thought was strange was that they offered us a free phone call to correct the problem but refused a few minutes of free internet time to correct the problem when I told them the place required an email. Just strange to me.
We still had a great time and we would sail Carnival and the Legend again.
We thought the food was actually quite good in the main dining room considering all the food they make in one evening. Breakfast seemed just average, not great, not bad. I did like the buffet quite a bit too.
I would say that Carnivals entertainment could be a little better. I did not see all the shows, but I did not like much of anything I saw.
We had no problems with the staff and actually thought our dining room staff was the best we ever had. Our room steward was never without a smile.
Overall, it was wonderful, but like I said I've never had a bad one yet. Cruising is my favorite place to be so it would be pretty hard to have a bad cruise.
