Ship Facts: Carnival Legend Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Carnival Legend Deck Plans
Fun week despite Hurricane Alex
Good: Past guest party still provides free drinks & hors doerves. Bad: Captain's reception---no free drinks.

Good: Adult only pool in the rear of the ship was really adult only! Bad: Didn't have serenity deck like some of the other Carnival ships, but still very much appreciated the adult only feature being enforced.

Room 8181 Our room was nice. Balcony view was great!

The only negative thing about this room is it is on the Panorama deck and is directly below the LIDO DECK.

If they have nightly activities on the will hear it. If you like to sleep will be awakened to deck chairs moving and footsteps.

Did not bother us particularly, but was something I noted and will definitely consider on my next trip.

My children stayed in room 8233 and it was about the same. Same view, etc.

Cruise director was "Wee Jimmy" and he was a hoot. Usually the cruise director is on my nerves by the end of the trip and this guy was not. He's funny, nice, and was a blast.

The band that played for the dancers/singers was PHENOMINAL and was the best we have heard on a ship (my spouse & I are both musicians and music lovers). They were really good. The shows were usual Carnival shows.

The food was pretty good. Our dining room experience was fine. Our wait staff was good. Our bar maid was not so great. So we did not order drinks while dining after the first night or two.

Bar staff were ALL very nice and very attentive. Great drinks! We used the drink coupons and it was worthwhile, though they do add the difference if you order a frozen drink or something more than $5.75.

Ship was clean and we felt safe even though the waters were rough.

They do now charge for motion sickness medicine where they did not do this previously. It was $4 for six meclizine (Bonine/Antivert) tablets.
