Food and Dining
Buffet food was hit or miss... sometimes fresh and tasty, other times not very good at all. Buffet staff not always very friendly. Dining room food was very good with a staff to match. Fantastic. Veggies and fruit all over the ship was wonderful, except bananas, which usually tasted old. Steakhouse service awesome, and food was very good.
Ship Quality
Very well organized and easy to get around. Gorgeous architecture. And I was very impressed by the fact that with thousands of people on board, it never seemed crowded and lines were never overly long; the staff really seems to have figured out how to organize people.
Cabin / Stateroom
Perfect. Small, but comfy, and we weren't in it so often anyway. Always very clean and orderly; the steward was great. Balcony was awesome... a must for sailing!
Service and Staff
Really nice and efficient and friendly. They obviously work hard and long hours, but seemed to have fun with the guests.
I'm biased, as I won the role of Elton John in the karaoke contest for the Carnival Legends final-night showroom show. But other than that, entertainment (music, comedy, etc.) was top-notch... very professional and entertaining. Everything it should have been. Only complaint: piped-in overhead music was repeated often... same songs over and over, sometimes back to back, even.
