another great cruise

Sail Date: July 2008
Destination: Western Caribbean
Embarkation: Tampa
This is the 2nd year in a row to cruise the Western Caribbean on the Carnival Legend. we love the ship, especially the size and lay-out. It seems to us that it is less crowded than the Conquest class ships.

Embarkation from Tampa was quick and pain free. Before we knew it we were eating lunch on the Lido Deck. Our room was ready by 1:30. Our cabin steward, Kelvin, was excellent. The room was clean, ice bucket stayed full and he always greeted us with a smile.

Each cruise seems to result in a different form of entertainment. This year it was Clifford, a singer, keyboard and sax player. We went to various lounges to hear him sing. He is a true professional. He skipped breaks and played longer to get in all the requests.

We had a great time at all our visiting ports. At Grand Cayman we took a cab to Royal Palms beach. We shopped at Cozumel but found time to eat at Poncho's Back Yard. We especially enjoyed the industrial strength Margaritas. At Belize we More snorkeled with Coral Breeze Tours. Since this was our first visit to Roatan, we spent alot of time on Cruise Critic researching the island. We chose Fins and Flippers...which is the closest place to Paradise we have ever experienced. After a 5 minute boat ride to the island (at $20 each for the day), we enjoyed the fresh water pool, beach, snorkeling and a great shrimp lunch.

As we have experienced in the past, the food in the dining room was excellent. We ate there every night. We also enjoyed the large selection of foods for breakfast and lunch every day.

Debarkation was the quickest we have ever experienced...Great work Tampa!

Although our review is shorter than usual, we can summarize by saying this was another great cruise with Carnival!! This is our 6th cruise...they know us, we know them and the result is another great time!
