Ship Experiences

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Really enjoyed the steakhouse! "Your time" dining was perfect for us and we never had a wait for a private table. Decent selection of food in all areas.


3 out of 5
The entertainment was pretty good - certainly better than nothing at all!

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Everyone, especially the room steward couldn't have been friendlier! Great staff.

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
Most areas were quite clean. The decor is beautiful - loved the atrium area and the glass elevators.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Our room on Deck 8 was much bigger than anticipated! Plenty of storage space as far as closets and there were 6 shelves in the bathroom. A hairdryer was in a dresser drawer. Terrific magnifying make-up mirror in bathroom too! Would recommend taking extra hangers.

Ports Of Call

George Town, Grand Cayman

5 out of 5
Seven Mile Beach is good area for sunning & other water activities but the snorkeling isn't good. Hammerheads is within walking distance to the left of the port and offers lunch plus snorkeling right from the dock. Taking the public bus is a cheap and easy way to get around.

Coxen Hole, Roatan, Bay Islands, Honduras

5 out of 5
Loved the West Bay/Tabyana beaches! Used a cab outside of the port area for a much cheaper price. Note that the beach area is approx 30 min from port. The drive thru the hills and countryside to get there is quite scenic at certain points.

Cozumel, Mexico

5 out of 5
Rented a scooter and drove around the island stopping wherever we wanted. The beaches beyond the tourist traps are beautiful and much less crowded. There are restaurants/bars every now and then so you're not totally isolated.

Belize City, Belize

1 out of 5
We took a "city - country" tour which we booked in port and it was a total waste of time and money. I should've looked into this before going because I knew where I wanted to go but no maps are provided and it was a bit tough to find someone to simply drive you around.

Pros: The staff, the food & the stateroom

Cons: Couldn't hear announcements; couldn't adjust temp in room

Recommends Carnival Legend? Yes!
