Ship Facts: Carnival Legend Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Carnival Legend Deck Plans
Second Time Around
We got off to a bad start in Philly when our plane had ice and we had to deplane and then sat on the runway in the second plane waiting for clearance. We thought things would get better once we arrived in Tampa. Not so. It was during Florida's cold spell and was freezing.

The port at Tampa was easy to reach by cab for a flat rate of $25.00, but then they made us wait outside in the cold for over and hour and a half. The Carnival Legend line wrapped around the corner. Granted, they weren't expecting cold, but we wondered what would happen in the rain. The Carnival employee told us that the port was only built to hold 1200 people and there were at least twice that on line. Once on board, our rooms were ready and we headed to the buffet. Cabin 6227 had a balcony and great middle of the ship location. We were near the elevators for easy access. We did hear some hallway noise and some music from the lounge in the atrium below. The loudest disturbances come from people slamming there cabin and balcony doors and moving chairs on the balconies above. Those can't be avoided. Overall, a good location.

This was a family reunion cruise and we met up with family on the Lido deck. Rooms were typical Carnival. We chose a balcony on the Empress Deck. The room was fine, a little old, but neat. We usually try to get mid ship near the elevators for convenience, but did hear some music late at night from the center of the ship's atrium. Food was good in the dining room. Our waitstaff was great, and as usual, the staff was very entertaining every night. We've missed that on other cruise lines. Food at the buffet on the Lido deck was okay....not great, but what we expected. There was always something you could find that you liked. Desserts were plentiful and well presented. Since we had cruised this same line with the same itinerary we didn't expect to find much to do. We were wrong in two ports.
