Embarkation was a simple, quick process, with plenty of helpful staff to look after us. I'm elderly, and took my 3 grandsons, aged 4, 7, and 9 on a 5 night cruise. Our stateroom was cosy but cramped for 4 people. For a longer cruise ... Read more

My husband and I are in our early 60's and when reviewing which cruise would suit us I noted that Carnival Legend had a Serenity Area on Deck 9 and an extensive library with shows in the evening. We saw the cruise had a good rating so we ... Read more

Myself and 5 other ladies went on a cruise from January 21st to 25th on the Breeze. Our rooms were nice and the bed was fantastic. Best sleep I've had in a long time, must have been the gentle rock of the ship. The food was good, really ... Read more
