Just back from the Legend. Enjoyed many things about the Legend. Yes the ship is older but there is still much charm to be found. First our Cabin steward Iwayan was awesome. Everyday a towel animal and he remembered our names saying hi ... Read more

We won our cruise from a casino. We had the choice to go anywhere Carnival sailed. Always wanted to see Alaska. Our favorite spot was Skagway. The town is so quaint. We did the White Pass train ride. In town we saw the brothel and ... Read more

We had wanted to do this trip for a long time. A friend of a friend put this trip together, otherwise we would have probably gone on a fly/cruise trip all of the way to Anchorage. As it was, this was an amazing time. We had the cash, so ... Read more

Embarkation was fine, we paid for "faster to the fun". We have sailed Carnival 3 times before, and on this class of ship - but in order to get on more quickly and a smoother process, you now have to pay a fee. Ship is OK in ... Read more

As a very minor shareholder in Carnival, I find it difficult to be 100% objective. I want all the ships and elements which make a cruise to be successful. No one can excel 100% of the time. There are items in this review that need ... Read more

We chose this cruise because we wanted to experience a taste of Alaska. The cruise wasn't bad but it could have been better. The ship is not equipped for a cruise to Alaska. The pools are not heated and there is only 1 covered pool and ... Read more

Carnival Legend: I was referred to this ship by family who have traveled several times on Carnival Cruise Lines. A trip to Alaska, a buck list dream, however, what I experienced was a very disappointing excursion on a ship that lacked ... Read more

I can't speak about other cruise lines because I have only been on Carnival and we have used them on 20 plus cruises. Our last cruise was on the Legend and we sailed to Alaska. The Shows were very good and I think Carnival has improved ... Read more

We choose this cruise because we have sail CARNIVAL many times. This by far was worst cruise I have been on. Designations were good. Service was very poor in the main dinning room. Had to ask for drinks, if you asked for something like ... Read more

We just returned from our Alaska Adventure with a group of 8. It was a once in a life time experience. Carnival Legend made the experience an all time high of vacations. This was the least expensive way to go to Alaska with the ... Read more

We chose this cruise for the children's program, affordability, and location. Everyone from our 6 year old to our 63 year old enjoyed it. I have several food allergies and the dining crew made sure to accommodate every one and was very ... Read more

Wanted to try a cruise somewhere other than Caribbean. I heard good things about Carnival's cruise up in Alaska and gave it a shot. Personnel was awesome as usual but the problem with large crowds in small places was vividly clear on this ... Read more

We chose this cruise because we had been wanting to cruise Alaska, and my company already had us in San Francisco the weekend before. We felt confident that Carnival would provide a great experience, and they did for the most part. We ... Read more

The family usually cruises with Carnival, so it wasn't a hard choice to choose the Legend for Alaska. We cruise for the ports, not the ship. On this trip was myself, husband and our two teenagers. We had a full five days to enjoy the ... Read more

I will start out by saying Alaska is absolutely beautiful. When you spend over $4K for one week of lodging and food one would expect higher quality and a safe environment. The Stateroom: Lightbulbls missing in vanity and nightstand, ... Read more

We had always thought that a cruise to Alaska would be a nice vacation. But it wasn't at the top of our vacation list. When John Heald scheduled a bloggers cruise for Alaska, that made the difference and we booked. Generally Alaska is ... Read more

30% of the food was "not" good. The first day upon arrival was pretty bad. Just picked through it. The french fries were small, tasteless and dry, even with cheese sauce. Wish they picked better quality potatoes like Steak ... Read more

Legend is showing its age. Rust and wear showing. The ports and excursions were great, Alaska is truly a destination to cruise to. We did enjoy our meals most of the time, the dining room food was very good with a good selection each ... Read more

Overall, we rate this cruise as Average, based mainly on the superior service of the crew and the general cleanliness of all public spaces onboard. The quality of the food in all venues was a little sub-par from our previous experience on ... Read more
