Had a great time. Boat was very nice. Worth the flight to go on a better ship. Staff was lovely and full of great service. Be preparred/budget for drinks at end of cruise and you'll be fine. Got a massage, great service. Slight disappointed that got hard sell of products after treatment. Ship had lots to do. Ports were nice. Glad we bought 2 excursions. Good balance in chill time at 4 stops and some fun stuff to do. Buy excurions NOT from cruise co... they charge much more for same events. Food was better than all-inclusive resorts in Mexico. Had a blast! Will absolutely go again. Went end of May - not a lot of kids, which was nice. Met some fun people. Adults only pool area was great!

Good, not great - but better than the all inclusive resorts in Mexico. Variety was nice. Some meals were great - others were just good.

Bigger than I thought. Spend a few extra dollars and get the balcony. We used it everyday to read, nap or chill at night w a drink.

Walked around. Very american port. Take a cab for $10 to the public beach. Nice beach... pay for chairs, etc. Worth it!

Passion Island excursion was great! Good value and great beach - so nice to have open bar and food. You can get their by boat or jeep tour. Book NOT from cruise. Cheaper on Orbitz.

Zip line trip was fun and worth $. The beach we went to after wasn't as nice as passion island (had to pay for chairs, umbrellas, food, drinks, etc)... it was fun. tough to pay for excursion then have to pay $10 for a beach chair - still had fun. Walked around and layed in water.

walked around port. talk to shop people, they are fun to learn from.

Pros: Ship great condition, very stable. Super friendly staff. Food was good, not great, but good. Room was bigger that I expected. Entertainment was good. Lots to do on ship. Ports were good. Glad we booked a 2 excursions in 4 stops. Buy excursions from Orbitz/direct from vendors and not from ship co!

Cons: Searching for cons: slightly disappointed that smoking is allowed on boat, not too bad until get into bars/clubs in evenings.

Recommends Carnival Legend? Yes!
