Review summary

This was our first cruise with a group of friends and we loved it. My husband and I have traveled on the Carnival Miracle before and it was our favorite ship, which is why we chose the Legend for our group cruise. We absolutely loved our dining room waiters, with Nichol, taking the cake. The food was great, and bonsai sushi was absolutely delicious. I was less intrigued by the entertainment on this cruise than previous and it was a bummer to find out that they don’t show movies on the TVs in the staterooms anymore. Everybody was very friendly on the cruise except for the bartender in the Red Frog Pub and the one sales associate in the fun shops, but we don’t ever let one or two bad eggs spoil the bunch. The rooms were always clean and the ship itself i found to be very clean as well. The only thing that i think threw us all off was how rocky the ship was, with this being our first winter cruise, we didn’t know what to expect, but that’s Mother Nature for ya. We would definitely sail again on the Legend!

Ship tip

It’s a smaller ship but that’s why we loved it, less people and less crowds compared to other larger ships. Go with an open mind and have fun, you’re on vacation!

Ports of call

George Town, Grand Cayman

5 out of 5
Grand Cayman was hot, sunny, and breath taking! It’s a more expensive port but it’s clean, friendly and safe and we love visiting.

Mahogany Bay, Roatan, Bay Islands, Honduras

It rained alllll day here but it’s still a beautiful port with very friendly people. Love it here!

Belize City, Belize

We absolutely love Belize. We’ve gone twice to the rainforest and have done cave tubing so next time, we want to explore either the ruins or the Mesoamerican Barrier Reef.

Cozumel, Mexico

4 out of 5
We love Cozumel! This was our first winter cruise so we were a little surprised with how chilly it was all day. We went to Mr. Sanchos and had a great time, but probably won’t go back. I actually enjoy doing the Carnival excursions because I feel like you see way more of the island/port.
