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

Everything about this cruise was enjoyable. The food in the MDR was very good for all meals. The breakfast buffet was very good. The ship never seemed crowded. The staff was always friendly and helpful. Embarkation in Seattle was smooth ... 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

I've only been on 6 cruises in my life (age 63), dating back to the 1980's, including a previous Alaska cruise on the NCL Jewel in 2013 and two almost back-to-back western Caribbean trips on the NCL Jade in 2016. I picked this cruise for ... Read more

Really enjoyed our stay on the Legend. Staff was amazing, really appreciate all the hard working people. She's an older ship but met all our needs. Couldn't believe the space in the bathroom, best on any cruise to date. I had no ... Read more

The crew was very pleasant. We discovered the "undercover" secret menu that the dining room keeps hidden away. This way.....your food is not mass produced. Just have to order it a day in advance at the dining room check in ... Read more

We were invited to accompany some relatives on this ship, as they had never been to the ports or countries that the ship visited. The things that we remember most about the cruise ship, are all bad, except for the ports of call, where we ... Read more
