Review summary

This is only the second time we cruised with Carnival. We have always cruised on ships that were much smaller. We worried about having 1000 more guests on board than we were used to and many more kids.What we found was that if you book a cruise when the kids are in school the 1000 extra adult guests aren't a problem and Carnival looks after its guests very well and the ship does not seem crowded at all.

Smooth and without problems, mainly because we followed Carnivals pre-cruise directions.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
The staff on the Legend were sooooo personable !!!!! From our Incredible Cruise Director Jen to the staff in the Unicorn Cafe and our daily Service team in the Truffles Restaurant 3 Aft.--- Daniel, Loganathan, Aris, Richard and our amazing Hostess Justyna --- Did I forget to mention the friendly Guest Service folks that quickly resolved a couple of minor personal problems I was having and of course Agus our Stateroom Steward who couldn't do enough for us. or the rest of the "Fantastic Crew" from a wide variety of Nations.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
The ship was easy to get around to all of the different facilities, it was also very clean and well maintained.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Our cabin was very nice, it had an extended balcony that was comfortable to sit and enjoy our breakfast in and a afternoon cocktail or two.

Ship tip

Pick a room that is close to the elevator Aft which gives you easy access to dinning either the Lido or Truffles restaurants.

Ports of call

Hilo, Hawaii

2 out of 5
We didn't do an excursion in Hilo mostly because of the poor weather. Instead we did our laundry on board and took a Walmart shuttle to Walmart so did a lot of the crew go to Walmart.

Kailua-Kona, Hawaii

4 out of 5
The port was OK --- we did a "Kona Historical Tour" The tour was also OK.

Nawiliwili, Kauai

The port was OK. --- We did a "Kauai North Coast & Hanalei Valley Tour" We enjoyed this senic tour.

Kahului, Maui

After the cruise we had booked a hotel in Honolulu, rented a car and stayed for 5 days before flying back to Canada.
