Ship Facts: Carnival Legend Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Carnival Legend Deck Plans
Birthday Cruising

We boarded Carnival Legend on May 4th 2013, sailed on 5th May. To say we were welcomed and treated with the best hospitality by all the crew, from the cabin steward through to the amazing dining room staff is an understatement.

Our boarding procedure was very swift and easy, to finding our cabin was a really good size. We were a group of 5 couples travelling together for 3 of our special birthdays. 4 cabins were all together so we were able to open the balcony doors and have a huge area to sit and relax after long days exploring all the ports. The special vouchers for buying your wines worked really well too. The dining room food was plenty and very well presented and of a very good quality too, I especially loved the dances and singing the staff did as a nightly event. The only down side was that there was 10 of us and we couldn't sit together every night as we wanted dine anytime. The fixed table times had the reserved large table. But on one occasion the dining room manager managed to put two tables together for one of the special birthday nights celebration. The rest of the time we managed and some of us got to mix with other diners. My close friend and I share a birthday so we booked the Steak restaurant. The food was amazing and well worth the $35 pr head. We had all bought with us a special bottle of red wine and the Sommelier got to try some very fine Australian wines.

The entertainment was awesome, from the Big Bands and Vocalist to the Shows and karaoke in Billy's Bar. There was fun to be had whenever you wished.

The ports of call were excellent, except Izmir. I don't think the Rome highlights was well thought out either. A lot of wasted time going around on the bus missing important areas such as the Spanish Steps and Piazza Verona. But the other Ports of call had great trips on offer. I can thoroughly recommend Pompeii. Venice is always an amazing place to sail from. The Cinque Terre, trip offered from Livorno is also a must. The ship might be 13 years old, the decor is too busy, but I can't fault the ship for anything else.

I would most certainly sail on Carnival again.
