A Cruise to Hell & Back !!!
Destination: Western Caribbean
We sailed out of Tampa on The Carnival Legend ( 9/12/2010 ), and we had a easy access to the VIP lounge and right onto the ship. We first ate lunch on the Lido Deck , due to our room not being ready till 1:30 ( most expected ), to make this all short and sweet we both loved the Excursions that we chose on Grand Cayman , Cayman Islands (Stingray City , Turtle Farm , and yes we even went to HELL )and on Isla Roatan , Honduras (Semi-Submarine , Tour of West End Village , and The Cameo Factory ( where I had a surprise waiting for my wonderful bride ).We also visited Cozumel , Mexico ( Did Shopping ) And we visited Belize City , and "you better Belize it"... One Barrel Rum , OH MY...
The stay on the ship was wonderful,we became rock and roll addicts when were at sea ( but to be expected ) we were just on the south edge of Tropical Storm Karl, WOO HOO .... Our room Steward was the best... Our meals were awesome ( since I didn't have to prepare them for a week ) ....We ate in More Truffles Dining Room every night but one , we ate in the Golden Fleece Steak House (OH MY )... We ate breakfast and lunch both in the Truffles Dining Room , on the Lido Deck and even called Room Service a few times...
The BAD things I didn't like about this cruise were you couldn't get near a pool or hot tub to speak of ... We paid for a Stateroom with a balcony, and our neighbors practically lived out on theirs SMOKING , Leaving there Balcony light on all night ( which shined into our room )....The other thing that made us so mad is that they would flick there butts into the water ...NOT GOOD !!! So all I can say to those who read this IF you have a problem with someone smoking... You probably should get an Ocean View Stateroom... And to Complain to someone on the ship about it does not work !!! Other than these few things our Vacation alone was awesome !!! We cruise again in 355 days to Eastern Caribbean on the Carnival Destiny !!! Less

Cabin review: OS6327 Ocean Suite
Very Nice Spacious Room , Bed A Little Hard , Very Quiet , Great View , Couldn't enjoy our balcony as much as we would of liked too ... All Cruise Lines Should Make all Smokers Pay More and should make them take Staterooms in the AFT of the Ship ... So The Ship Leaves A Trail Of Smoke ... Neighbors in stateroom 6323 kept there balcony light on all night and kept us awake , even with the drapes closed , and they kept smoking on there balcony and We have Asthma , and they kept flicking there Cigarette butts in to the water , other that that , very clean and a special thanks to our steward (Giddings Fitzroy)... What a superb job and he even had a extension cord waiting for my CPAP Machine...Read All Ocean Suite (OS) Reviews >>
Port and Shore Excursions
And when you are there in Belize and you want a drink , all I can say is that ( YOU BETTER BELIZE IT ) ....
We booked a tour through Carnival and it took us to Stingray City , to swim with the stingrays , Then to the Turtle Farm ,, We held the turtles ... Then we went to HELL , and no it was not hot there , it was rainy and 75 degrees... And yes they do sell Ice Water there ... Heehaw !!!
We again booked our Excursion through Carnival and we went to by bus to the West End Village to meet up with the Semi Submarine , very awesome coral reef and lots of colorful fish... Then we toured the shops in the village and met up with people running a shop from our home state .... Then it was off to the Cameo Factory where I had a surprise waiting for my lovely bride ( A Cameo made just for her , with two Dolphins).... But read this carefully , You gentlemen who want to do this for your loved one , call 3 to 4 months in advance to your arrival ...
Baggage check point and Customs/Security check was smooth ,,, Other than that this a awesome time to have fun in the sun !!!
And A Special Thanks To All Carnival Legend Staff and The Carnival Staff When Booking This Cruise ... THANK YOU
P.S I Really Believe It wasn't Carnivals Fault That There Is Some Dumb People In This World That Don't Know How to Respect Others
