Carnival Legend Cruise Review by bll97: Good and bad of the ship and recommendations for ports
Overall Member Rating
Good and bad of the ship and recommendations for ports
Destination: Western Caribbean
A few highlights....The Golden Fleece steakhouse - definitely worth the $35 pp. We went twice. Just don't go the first night like we did as this then mediocre food at the rest of the restaurants and buffets is even worse. Service and food at this place were outstanding.
Room - A balcony room on the end of the ship offered fantastic views. The only downside was the heavy smokers on the balcony next door. You could constantly smell it and the ashes blew on our balcony.
Room Staff-Very hardworking and so pleasant and concerned with how we were enjoying our cruise, the nicest crew members on the ship.
Entertainment-The new magic show was terrific.
A few low lights...
Alcohol - Definitely don't try and sneak additional alcohol on board as several of the reviews suggest. They take every case of water apart and shake every bottle, then toss out anything with bubbles. So now you've wasted that money then you're still buying over-priced watered down More cocktails on the ship.
The Fitness Center - Equipment was good but $12 for a yoga or pilates class? Really, that's more expensive than a major city and the times weren't even convenient.
Entertainment- We only went one night other than the magic show. It was some sort of musical revue. The performers were so bad we initially thought they were passengers performing.
Casino - So full of smoke we couldn't stay long
Ports - Time was way to short in each port. The way the wait is managed for tender ports is ridiculous, a better system is needed. Less
