Ship: Carnival Legend
Cabin Type: Inside
Traveled As: Couple

We have primarily been river-cruise people. Hence\, and probably due to the price difference\, we were a little put off by the constant selling going on. Basically\, we ignored it. But the shows were awesome -- much better than anything we have experienced on the rivers. The tech resources of the Follies theater are just amazing in a ship. The food was good -- easy to see why big boats have a reputation for putting on the pounds! Although we had ordered an 'inside' cabin\, we got one of the ones that had a window -- granted looking at the lifeboats\, but still not a blank wall.

I did not expect to see fly space in a ship!

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Especially the staff in Truffles helping with my wife's peanut allergy

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
Only thing preventing excellent was the decor -- never got used to that.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
Much more storage than we expected (or needed)

Pros: Shows were great; Golden Fleece was awesome\, and Truffles generally good. We appreciated their response to my wife's peanut allergy.

Cons: Until we watched the video\, the boat's decoration made no sense -- still a bit gaudy for my taste

Recommends Carnival Legend? Yes!
