My husband and I had a most wonderful Scandanivia and Russia cruise on the Legend in August. We had absolutely no complaints and loved the Legend and entire staff. The ship is beautiful and very well laid out. It's nice to be on a glitzy ship on holiday and there was so much to see and do each day, especially on sea days. We were delighted with our cruise director, the most hilarious John Heald, who always let us know what ws going on each day and was absolutely the best cruise director we've ever had the pleasure of being entertained by. This was our 6th Carnival holiday and we've loved them all and are looking forward to our next one, next year.
We loved the gym, which had state of the art cardio equipment and weights, and most helpful personal trainers, who were gracious enough to answer any exercise related questions. We did go early and never had a problem getting a treadmill or other cardio equipment. The gym was extremely clean and it was most enjoyable working out a bit in the morning, anticipating the fun day ahead, whether going on an exciting tour or just spending a lazy day at sea.
We took a pre-cruise Carnival package in London and spent two nights at the Hilton, Olympia Hotel. It was great as Carnival arranged for a private car pick-up at the airport and then after the two nights, we were driven to the Port of Dover, in a brand new Mercedes bus, to catch the ship. The pre-cruise exploration of a bit of London was such fun and we took the Hop on, Hop off bus tour and checked out some of the major sites. We were most fortunate to have enjoyed spectacular weather on our 14 day holiday.
Cabin #1117 was extremely quiet; we didn't hear a peep from anyone. It was an ocean view and was most enjoyable. It was on the lowest deck and very quiet since there were no entertainment venues around. We were surrounded by cabins - below us and above.
