Worth the trip

Sail Date: March 01, 2012

Reviewed: 4 years ago

Traveled As: Family w/young children

Room Type: Balcony

The ship and crew were excellent. The staff was most helpful and the ship layout was efficient and cruiser friendly. Loved having the rooms higher on the ship and the amenities like dining, casino, etc, lower. A nice change from other ship layouts.

Pros: Deck layout was much improved over other ships.

Cons: Legends theme was a little over the top and rather gaudy in some areas.

Recommends Carnival Legend? Yes!

Cabin / Stateroom
Little difference from other curise ships in terms of layouts. But I do have to say the beds were not nearly as comfortable as others. Matresses were more like a pull out bed and 7 days on that was not good.
After 20+ cruises there is little new and different on the activities list, but still something for everyone if they want to participate.
Ship Quality
Loved having the rooms higher on the ship and the amenities like dining, casino, etc, lower.
Food and Dining
Considering the numbers of cruisers served, the quality of food was excellent. If you want personal service and food cooked to order, you won't get that in the dining rooms, but considering that this is really banquet style dining, the quality was excellent.
Service and Staff
The dining staff especially were outstanding and attentive. They personalized the experience and genuinely seemed to be concerned that we were pleased and happy with the food and their service. Stateroom stewards were also very helpful and accomodating.
Children's Programs
Highly impressed with the children's programs. I expected a "babysitting room" and found well trained staff, age appropriate interactive events and activities, and the secruity program was well done and added a sense of security for parents, including cell phones for parents to ensure they could keep in touch. Very well done.
