Ship Facts: Carnival Legend Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Carnival Legend Deck Plans
Carnival Legend - Eastern Caribbean
We just returned this afternoon from the best cruise we have ever taken!!This was on the Carnival Legend - a beautiful ship. We can't say enough about this vessel, its crew and officers, the programs, the food and entertainment - just everything was so lovely.

The first thing we noticed was the friendliness of the crew. Upon embarkation we noticed smiling faces!!! Our last cruise was on the Zenith and they didn't even talk to each other!!! So seeing friendly, warm young people welcoming us aboard was wonderful.

A suggestion though - something needs to be done about the lines and the inefficiency of the folks who check the credentials and get us our sail/sign cards. We waited over two hours in the terminal, on the dock, with only a few people ahead of us. My husband had requested a wheel chair when we made our reservations, but it wasn't there for him so this was a difficult time for us all. We did have a wheelchair upon debarkation though.

The meals was beautifully presented, and everything we ate was delicious. Our waiter and his assistant were very professional while at the same time wonderfully pleasant and helpful.

Our cabin steward was also terrific and helped us resolve a couple of small problems we had. He was always pleasant and friendly, asking if there was anything else he could do for us.

The ship itself is absolutely beautiful and was immaculate at all times. People were cleaning all the time to keep things nice, shiny and germ free.

All in all, our cruise, despite a few rough nights due to Ophelia, was perhaps the best trip we have ever taken. We are "frequent floaters" and often take two or more cruises a year. We now have 22 cruises to our credit, but this is our first Carnival experience.

Watch out Royal Caribbean - Carnival is right on your tail in terms of exquisite cruising!!!
