Good first experience with Carnival and the Legend

Sail Date: January 2014
Destination: Western Caribbean
Embarkation: Tampa

Just back from our first cruise with Carnival on the Legend and enjoyed the experience greatly. Loved the layout of the ship and found it very easy to get around. The "Serenity" area for adults only, was a bonus and it was so nice to relax without loud booming music, especially on sea days. The buffet areas never seemed crowded and food was of good variety and quality. 24 hour soft serve ice cream and the outstanding pizza was appreciated after the late night shows. The service in the main dining room was excellent and the food served was average to good on most nights. The grand suite had ample room and the balcony was very spacious.

All the staff on the Legend was ready and willing to make our cruising experience a positive one and it was! Entertainment on the Legend was varied and met a wide array of ages and interests. The only negative of the entire cruise was a heavy dense fog which delayed our arrival and disembarkation in Tampa by over 4 hours. Many guests with early More flights were in panic mode, but the crew and staff did their very best handling a very stressful and difficult situation. My wife and I will most definitely cruise Carnival again. Loved the Legend! Less
