The ship was average but the ports very interesting. Staff was overall pretty friendly. Food was average. The Steakhouse was GREAT!

Recommends Carnival Legend? Yes!

Ship Quality
Food and Dining
I would rate the Steakhouse as above average or excellent, however. In general, the Lido deck was pretty good for the casual part of dining. Space was a bit cramped and hard to find a table during "rush hour".
Cabin / Stateroom
Our stateroom suite was smaller that expected - but we warmed up to it and found it fine for the trip. Service was very good with our cabin stewards. Amenities were a very nice touch! Space was ample for storage and our location was great - except for the guy next to us who took the opportunity to smoke cigars constantly on the deck (blew right into our room and made us all sick). I would suggest that cruise ships allow smoking on the balconies only when the ship is moving quickly along or not at all. There were warnings about this causing fires, so I wonder why they still allow people to smoke around staterooms and on private balconies. Create a smoke room on the ship equipt with cigars and smokes and let people go there to enjoy a smoke instead of the rest of us breathing it all in.
Service and Staff
Our evening servers were very friendly and accommodating.
Kids had a great time at Camp Carnival!
Professional pictures were very good - the photographers were patient, funny and professional.
Children's Programs
Kids had a great time and met some new friends.
George Town, Grand Cayman
Stingrays swim on the sandbar was MAGICAL! The turtle farm was FANTASTIC! Wish we had more time at this port.
Don't Miss: stingrays and turle farm
Cozumel, Mexico
Swimming with Dolphins and watching them play was a BIG TREAT!
Don't Miss: dolphin encounters!
Belize City, Belize
Tour guide for Altun Ha and City Tour was very good. Would recommend this for kids 6 and older - our 4 year old had fun but was a handfull there during the lectures.
Mahogany Bay, Roatan, Bay Islands, Honduras
Wonderful time at the beach...
