7 Night Exotic Western Caribbean (Tampa Roundtrip)
Sail Date: July 24, 2011
Ship: Carnival Legend
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Family (older children)
Reviewed: 6 years ago

This ship is a little older but well maintained. The complaints we had were lack of family type activities. It felt that the cruise was geared toward those who drink and gamble and not a lot to do for those who don't. The first night there was not even a real show. There was also a lack of communication such as how to get off the ship to meet our shore tour at the end of the pier by 8:00 a.m. We heard an announcement about 8:15 but by then about 100 of us had already had to find our way out to meat our excursion. We also really missed the midnight extravaganza - chocolate buffet- or whatever you want to call it. We have never been on a cruise without one of those.

Shows were so, so. Really there was not a lot else to do. Just bingo, bingo, bingo. Please come up with more to do. Craft making, food carving, etc.

Cabin / Stateroom

Our room was too small for the four people we had in it. We had to pay a huge upgrade from my parents who only had two people and our room was the exact same size. In fact, I had asked if we could put three in their room and three in ours and was told they did not have room for a third so that is why we had to upgrade when we added our fourth person. They had a couch just like ours, that made into a bed and they could have had three people. I was not very happy about that!

We had fun zip lining. I would like to return and see a Myan ruin. This tour sold out over a week before the cruise.

We just swam on the beach near the ship and shopped. It was fun but next time I would go to a different beach to get better snorkeling.

We have been there three times now and we love it. This time we went to Tulum and it was great.
