I have been on 2 other cruises, this was our first Carnival Cruise on the Legend. It was good. Of course the dining room was great and state room service was wonderful, no problems at all. Perfect.
It was the fun ship a lot of party people and young adults and unsupervised kids/teens running around. I didn't care for that. I have kids 8 & 11 and enjoy a family place. Camp Carnival for the Kids was okay. Our last cruise was a Disney Cruise so comparing that aspect of cruising Carnival was not as good. Camp Carnival would close down at weird times.
All the food service and stateroom personnel are wonderful, kind and helpful people.
Just like other ships, it's crowded at the pool deck when out to sea.
The Legend didn't have all the little screaming kids all over the place as the Disney cruise. That was good. But, there are out of control kids running around the ship, without their parents.
We would probably do a Carnival Cruise again. Great Price, nice cruise. It depends on your age and the age of your kids and what you want out of your cruise.
