6 Night Western Caribbean New Year's (Tampa Roundtrip)
Sail Date: December 26, 2011
Ship: Carnival Legend
Cabin Type: Suite
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 6 years ago

MaiderD was awful, never accommodated my request VIP meant zip! My SUITE had a tiny balcony and view of the stairway which the staff used to sit and chat on & the jacuzzi was busted, poor quality suite. It rained so on the roof over the salad bar on the Lido deck poured down. Main dining experience the same, the soups were way watered down, portions were TINY. Example, stuffed mushroom appetiser, you get (2) small ones & the sour cream on my baked potato was the consistency of milk (you get the idea)! One bottle of wine for dinner was $42 off the ship same bottle is $13. The jewerly store had raffles stating a give-away for normally $99 watch/gift sets. I've bought them before, they are worth $20 or less since they are cheap, break & tarnish definitely not a $99 value so that is a false claim. Tampa port does not have a separate VIP line as other ports do, the VIP starts after the long line & baggage check, what good is it then? VIP debarkation, same thing, everyone filtered down the stairs and there was no separate VIP line, VIP means nothing to Carnival anymore? Drinks onboard are HUGELY overpriced (example a mamosa was $9+$2 automatic tip), once you pay for the cruise you keep on paying, drinks, tips, tours, spa... which the spa should be part of the cruise experience and not a separate billing item. I use to crise EVERY year, not any more.

Food and Dining

quality WAY down, food in very tiny portions, example the sour cream had the consistency of milk, cut a rib eye into 4 slices, you get one of those for dinner, soup is all water, etc.

for a suite, ours was horrible! the balcony was VERY tiny, another view was of the staircase where the staff hung out to smoke and the other window was a wall with a curtiain. the jacuzzi would not work and the TV would not rotate for a comfortable view from the bed.

Pros: Not much

Cons: Most everything

Recommends Carnival Legend? No.
