I enjoyed cruising on the Legend for the size of the ship. It was small and without a large amount of passengers. The food left a little to be desired. There was not a good selection of food at every meal. There were times I just had a ... Read more

We have cruised a dozen times but this was our first Alaskan cruise. Have also cruised on RC, Princess, Celebrity and Norwegian. Really love Carnival for value and comfort. Embarkation in Seattle was smooth quick. We had an extended ... Read more

We sailed out of Seattle on the 26th August through the Inside passage and endured not the best of weather in which we acknowledge is out of everyone's control. However because of the unfortunate weather, this restricted some activities ... Read more

If you have not done Alaska, do it! I have done 9 Caribbean cruises and Alaska is a must. The Ship - Legend Nice ship, the outside decks aren't used as much due to the cooler weather so the ship does feel a little crowded at times. ... Read more

Frankly, I am not sure where to begin and how to remain civil writing this review. I wish I could give a 0 stars rating. After cruising previously on Carnival, Royal Caribbean, Disney, we were truly disappointed with our experience. Had ... Read more

Overall, we had a really good time on the cruise but most of that positive experience was not due to Carnival. Though we didn't hate anything about it (other than the entertainment which was down right pitiful) we were not impressed by ... Read more

I know Carnival has provided Alaska cruises for a while now so I expected them to be a bit more polished, however they fell short. They only operate in the main "mass-market" itinerary, the Seattle round-trip, with one ship. ... Read more

Just off the July 28th cruise to Alaska. This marks our fifth (and perhaps our last) trip with Carnival, after a disastrous cruise to Hawaii on the Miracle in December of 2014. That cruise was appalling, and I thought I would give ... Read more

We arrived Seattle a few days prior to our cruise departure date so we could "tourist" a bit. We loved the ease of taking the Link Light Rail from Sea-Tac to downtown Seattle, where we then went up to the top floor of Westlake ... Read more

I regret taking this cruise. It was terrible. In the past, when I took a cruise there were fresh flowers, a bowl of fresh fruit, a fancy chocolate on my pillow before bed in my room; the stewards were often in the hallway working, ... Read more

The boarding process was efficient and well planned out and I feel that we were treated well upon arrival boarding of the ship. We made our way to our stateroom where we checked out the place where we would be staying. There was a king bed ... Read more

Not sure what the decorator was thinking when they designed the Legend, but it was really not attractive. Just about everyone we encountered said the same things, so I know it was just not our opinion. I was surprised that the food was ... Read more

Destination was great. Disappointed that we could not get close enough to see the glacier on out first stop. Skagway we took the train to the top of the mountain into Canada. Well worth the money. Juneau we went whale watching and were ... Read more

The Experience: This was our third cruise on Carnival and about our 25th cruise in total. The whole experience reminded me of a cut-rate airline. You just got the bare minimum and anything additional will cost extra. No more ... Read more

I gotta share this, my wife and I are experienced cruisers, we've been cruising since 2002. Back in the good old days if you were VIP you not only didn't have to wait in the long cattle line but you'd be escorted to a side room where you ... Read more
