The Legend is not a huge ship so getting around is very easy.

Buy anything at port of tampa, taxes are added! Beware! Turn OFF cell phones or a surprise from cell phone carrier will be instore! Internet on boat is SLOW and COSTLY! if you drink a lot of Sodas, get the "all the soda coupon" and buy the Carnival travel cup (you can pre mix your drinks and add soda or just use them for soda, holds more and doesnt spill. Get one "All you can drink soda stamp" for every two people, get a Carnival travel cup per person, then go a bar to fill up on one, then to next bar to get another refill. Basically you use one soda coupon for two people, just dont use the same bar to fill up both cups. Call Bon Voyage (1.800.764.7419)and request alcohol in the room. a little extra than at home, but A LOT less than per drink. Most drinks are 11-17 per drink. Liqour by the bottle (1 liter) about 50-60$ can get up to 4 liters per room. Get to excursion checkout 15 min later than they state, so you can get right on the tenders, instead of waiting in a room for the tenders. liqour by the drink coupons are worthless unless you only drink beer. Check all luggage unless you really want to lug suitcases around everywhere!

look at all the buffets before choosing. They are not all the same. All are very different. The hot dogs were to die for. The soft serve ice cream was good, unlike a previous Carnival we were on. Don't bother to pack an iron - they will take it away and you'll get it back at the end of the trip.

Take the time to enjoy the dinners because there are great friends to be made with staff and table friends.

eat less at dinner as the desserts are fabulous. go to see marilyn at the odyssey lounge for great cocktails before dinner.

Be sure that the Carnival experience is for you before you book.

If you plan to use pool on a sea day, get there before 9:00 am to get a chair or they will all be "held" by towels. If your budget permits, book a balcony room (especially extended). Think about booking shore excursions on your own - don't leave your plans up to the whims of Carnival.

The dining room brunch on sea days is actually quite good.

Do not miss any dinner. Every evening is special.

Best tip: Book elsewhere. Second tip: use Cruises Only excursions. Better that the ships excursion and cheaper. We also used other third party operators and that was not a happy result.

Spend a few hours taking the dance classes. I have two left feet and the staff made the effort to not only help but improve my dancing skills.
