Sail Date: Dec 2013
Traveled with children

Cruisers: Me (male, 40), my wife (age not disclosed), daughter 20, son 19, son 6.

First time on the Legend and I would say that I prefer this smaller Spirit class ship over the Dream class (we've cruised on the Dream and Breeze). The Breeze was more visually appealing, but the walking to get anywhere on those ship becomes annoying. I can't see myself ever on the Oasis of the Seas or the other behemoths from RCI. I never felt crowded and the lines were never long to wait in. There weren't many kids on board and half of the cruisers were age 50+ due to the early December departure date. My kids did find some others their age to hang out with.

Embarkation was simple and fast. We checked five bags and got them around 4:00pm.

Cabin Review

Standard Carnival balcony room. Nice firm bed but the pillows are awful.
