Good stops, bad ship
Carnival Legend Cruise Review to Caribbean - Western
Sail Date: September 16, 2012
Ship: Carnival Legend
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Couple

Review SummaryI'd say Carnival has cut costs to the absolute minimum. The ship reeked of smoke even 2 floors above the casino due to poor ventilation. The crew was unable to perform even basic crowd management and the cruise line spent more time worrying about squeezing a few extra pennies here and there than ensuring customer happiness.
Food and Dining
The Lido deck was little better as most of the food lines were only open for lunch (rendering them useless on port days) and only a few lines open for dinner. This lack of options was not previously a problem on Carnival ships but apparently has become an issue due to the cheapness of the \"Fun Ships\"
Service and Staff
The cleaning staff were nice\, did a good job but insisted on slamming doors and vacuuming @ 7:00 AM. Also\, our assistant steward never seemed to get our dinner time right and was constantly waking us up while we were napping or bursting in while we were getting ready as he would just open up the door at the same time he was knocking.
Cabin / Stateroom
Pros: The ports of call of the cruise.
Cons: Poor shape of the ship\, out of control nature of its passengers.
