Sail Date: Aug 2012
Cabin: Ocean Suite

We cruised on the Legend August 12-19. Every day was calm seas and beautiful weather. We got extremely lucky because some of our cab drivers were telling us of all of the problems that Hurricane Ernesto had caused just the week before.

My wife and I are are both in our mid-50's, third time cruisers, and decided to book this cruise to celebrate her successful fight with cancer. We had originally booked a balcony room but about three weeks before the cruise were contacted by Carnival and were asked if we wanted to upgrade to an Ocean Suite. After a bit of negotiations we booked it.

We were VERY lucky in that every day we had calm seas and just wonderful weather. The only time it poured was just as we started muster and everyone got soaked.

Cabin Review

Ocean Suite

Cabin OS

We had an Ocean Suite--Cabin 6197 0n the starboard side.

After cruising in a balcony room and a inside state room cruising in a suite is wonderful. Lots of room, lots of closet and drawer space. Bathroom had double granite sinks with Jacuzzi tub. Big king size bed that was so comfortable you had trouble getting out of it in the morning. A nice sized sofa and a small desk also. The only two complaints there is one, yes just two electric plugs (110 volt) in the whole room, and one is behind the TV. I also was under the impression that there are some perks that you received with booking a suite but there are absolutely none. We were told by the Carnival rep that booked us that you would get VIP treatment during embarkation and disembarkation. Didn't happen. In fact embarkation was a cluster. No clear directions. The biggest complaint I have with the Legend is the sound system. The announcements were always very hard to hear.

The balcony was very good sized. Had three chairs and a lounge chair and also two tables. Very comfortable.

We just went to the dock area and did some shopping. Not much here.


A beautiful area. Beautiful beach with shade palms, a view of the coast and the ship right there. Breathtaking and the shopping area was new, clean and affordable. Great area.
