7 Night Exotic Western Caribbean (Tampa Roundtrip) Sail Date: July 03, 2011 Ship: Carnival Legend Cabin Type: Balcony Traveled As: Couple Reviewed: 6 years ago
The ship was nice, like a large hotel. It would have been nice if it had been clearer to determine which direction was the front of the ship and which was the rear. Many maps available, but easy to turn yourself around as most of the ship looks the same.
Food and Dining
3 out of 5
Desserts were usually bland, there were not a lot of basic food choices in the main dining room for my husband who is a bit picky.

At the start of the cruise we very much enjoyed the activities available, but found that near the end the variety was less as well as a lighter schedule. We were bored the latter part of our cruise.

The mini bar could have been a bit larger. Too few outlets - I use a CPAP machine and the only outlet was across the room. I had to use an extension cord which made a tripping hazard.
The best port for us, just beyond the pier was the city, you could explore on your own or hire locals to take you around. We did book the sting ray city/rum point beach excursion. We did wish we would have known that the sting rays were literally in the middle of the ocean. My husband does not swim and was not comfortable getting out in the middle of the ocean. It was still beautiful and we enjoyed the beach, just wish we had been given a better understanding of the excursion.
I would have liked to have more access to the city itself. I enjoyed the port, but felt that I didn't really experience Belize. We had the option to go with some of the locals, but did not go early enough to take advantage of this.
Pros: comedy club
Cons: not enough on ship activities second half of cruise.
