Review summary

Loved the Carnival Legend.  We were supposed to go to Mahogany Bay and that was cancelled, due to weather, which was not their fault, but then they changed the itinerary for the day and I missed something I planned to attend, and that was their fault.  They should have put new plans for the day at everyone's door like they do every night.  


The boat was great.  Entertainment was good, although the illusionsists were a bit slutty for kids to attend and we found that out the hard way.  All in all, we really had a good time.  Food in main dining room was excellent, as was the staff serving it.  Great time!

They didn't use this. Too grown up, I guess.

Cabin / Stateroom

I was stunned to get a balcony guarantee cabin and have it be on the 8th floor, mid-ship. I will always use that from now on.

Ship tip

I really, really liked the pizza, but heard others complain. It is thin crust, which is what I like. Really good!

Ports of call

Tampa, Florida

Go early. Really early. Earlier than they tell you to go. Walked right in and it was the best check-in ever!

Cozumel, Mexico

3 out of 5
Cozumel is beautiful, but the last two cruises had bad weather that day. My son never wants to go to Mexico again. Tour guide, Gabriel (excellent, by the way) suggested a place for lunch that was just too busy to handle our large group, and the food wasn't great. Would not go there again.

Belize City, Belize

Not too much to do unless you do a daredevil excursion, and I had my 80 year old+ Mom with us. Beautiful, though.

Mahogany Bay, Roatan, Bay Islands, Honduras Did not visit port

Didn't get to go, due to weather.

George Town, Grand Cayman
