Ship Facts: Carnival Legend Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Carnival Legend Deck Plans
Great Trip - Legendary Lines!
Arrived around 11:45 AM.  Embarkation was fairly pleasant and smooth with the exception of a surly guy directing traffic at the luggage drop off.  We were on board by 12:45.

Ship is beautiful, clean and well maintained.  Service was consistently excellent.  Food was good, as was most entertainment. 

Were looking forward to a "non-crowded" ship as experienced by prior reviews, but found just the opposite - long lines and throngs of people everywhere!  We cruise frequently on numerous lines and ships, but have never felt this intensity of crowds. There were frequently exceptionally long lines into dinner (had late seating), into the past guest reception, for the Georgetown tenders, for Bingo cards, etc.  Thank goodness we han an extended balcony to escape to since it was almost claustraphobic :-)

Cozumel was canceled in advance due to Swine Flu - extra day at sea was restful.

Did Jet Ski to Stingray City in Grand Cayman with Fat Fish.  Excellent.

Did Zip Line and Cave Tubing with Major Tom in Belize.  Tour and guide George were excellent. 

BELIZE TENDER NOTE:  Prior reviews had frustration with getting off the ship early for non-carnival tours.  Carnival must be reading these reviews - it was not too bad.  We lined up about 7:20 AM (with what seemed like the rest of the ship - another very long line - fortunately we were toward the front) outside the Follies Lounge.  They opened for tender tickets at 8 AM right on time. After only 10 - 15 minutes, they called 3 tenders of Carnival tours going places other than Georgetown, then called non-Carnival tour sticker numbers 1 - 4.  We were on our way into port by 8:30.

Did Roatan Tour with Victor Bodden and guide Hanno.  Excellent.

Did self debarkation - went very smooth.  Waited for clearance announcement on Deck 2 with all the other self debarkers (a final very long line - even though the ship announcements requested self debarkers to wait on Deck 3 or Lido!)
