Ship Experiences

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
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.

Entertainment

5 out of 5
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.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Really nice and efficient and friendly. They obviously work hard and long hours, but seemed to have fun with the guests.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
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

5 out of 5
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!

Pros: The extreme pleasure of getting away from everything at home

Cons: Very limited food selection after 9pm

Recommends Carnival Spirit? Yes!
