Amazing trip - just not up to par

Sail Date: May 16, 2016

Room Type: Balcony

Alaska is an incredible place and seeing it on a cruise ship has always been my dream.  This was my second cruise on Carnival and my second cruise on the Legend.  The ship is one of the oldest in their fleet, but it is clean and well maintained.  The staff was very friendly and helpful.  The balcony room was very nice, but a little tight for 3 people.  The food was not as good as I remembered and there wasn't the variety I thought there would be.  For an up-charge in the dining room you could order better than what was being served.  My biggest disappointment was the number of small children allowed to run wild all day and then become a nuisance at night when rude parents bring them to the shows and let them cry for an hour.  The staff should step so other guests don't miss the show.  Overall very happy I went and I am planning on going again, this time I will try another cruise line with less kids.

Cruise Photos

Cabin / Stateroom
Cabin was clean and the steward kept everything looking neat and clean. The walls are very thin, heard the family with 3 kids screaming all night and almost had a picture fall off the wall thanks to a heavy handed neighbor who couldn't shut the door without slamming it.
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Only trouble was in Juneau where we had to unexpectedly tender. Not a big deal to some, but it seemed others were very hostile.
Ship Quality
Destinations and Excursions
Great excursions.
Onboard Activities
Other than the shows and comedy club, there were not many activities.
Children's Programs
Must not have been enough children's programs because the kids were always underfoot.
Loved the shows in Folly's and the comedians.
Service and Staff
Food and Dining
Dining room was ok, nothing to write home about. The buffet was good on occasion, but it seemed to lack variety.


Don't be afraid to get a room near the elevators, you cannot hear them.
