Now we know why Carnival is less expensive. Itinerary was the reason we chose this cruise. We cruised with Princess to the eastern Med and really enjoyed the ship and amenities --like movies in your cabin and under the stars at poolside. But, the Legend was boring -- maybe a movie was shown in a VERY uncomfortable theater but then that same movie was shown over and over in the cabin the following day.

Food got kind of monotonous. Strange that in the dining rooms where most of the place settings were rather formal, they then served coffee from those plastic thermos servers!

Entertainment seemed be mostly comedians with a lame magic show one night. I guess there were some singers/pianists but they'd really have to be pretty good to keep us there.

We won't be taking another Carnival cruise.
