The good and the bad
Carnival Legend Cruise Review to Caribbean - Western
Sail Date: October 30, 2011
Ship: Carnival Legend
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 5 years ago
Review SummaryI was pleased with the ship. It was clean and well maintained. The Greek decor was cheesy though.
I would recommend that the ship consider having designated areas for people that are handicapped or are over the age of 70 that would give them easier access. Watching many of them fight their way to the food areas was disappointing.
Food and Dining
Service and Staff
The entire wait staff at the Golden Fleece was great. Mariya (Croatia), Anastaysa (Serbia?), and Gonya were excellent. The cooks also prepared excellent vegan dishes for my wife.
For those who can, tip above and beyond the 15% when you can. Your level of service will exceed the norm. Many of the staff makes $50-70 a day and most people do not tip over the 15%.
Cabin / Stateroom
Ports of Call
Don't Miss: n/a
Don't Miss: Jolly Roger Snorkelling
Don't Miss: Make sure you verify all of your excursion early the night before. Some cancel w/o a chance of replacement.
Don't Miss: Hammerhead Bar. It is 200-300 yards from the tender drop off. Try there coconut Rum.
Pros: The steak house, the comedy shows, the convenience of not having to worry about checking into a hotel, the Steak house staff, most of the bartenders and our room/floor manager Collin, the food quality
Cons: Rude people, most of the people were much older (50 +), people belching/farting at dinner, letting an overweight 70 year old snorkeler (he got hurt), had an excursion cancelled and was not notified,
