  3. Carnival Legend
Got to Tampa it was a little crowded, but the lines moved quickly. We recommend valet parking, you won't miss the extra $15 when you are going on a cruise. And just walking on the ship is way more convenient When we got in it was so awesome! We went to the lobby (if you have been on the legend, you would know what I mean) the base of the lobby looked like a flower. The ship is still very new looking and very clean. Our room wasn't ready when we got there, but not unexpected since we got there a bit early. The cabin steward was cleaning when we got there and had a chance to meet him. Good time to slip a couple of bucks his way to ensure his best efforts. Don't know if it made a difference, but our service was excellent the entire trip. After the required lifeboat drill, we spent the rest of the evening exploring the ship. As mentioned above, its a grand ship. I like the theme better than some of the other Carnival Ship, less Vegas, more elegance. It still has the requisite amount of neon, but more tasteful than some of the other ships we've been on. I would have to say the food was the low point. It wasn't bad, but several dishes were overcooked, or just weren't perfected yet. They said they just changed the menu and this might have been the reason for the inconsistency. One exception was the supper club. If you go on the Legend, the supper club is a must. Its the best $30/person you can spend. A brief word on the the shore excursions. We booked the (almost) sub ride in Grand Cayman, the cave tubing in Belize, the snorkeling in Honduras (Roatan Island) and finally the Tulum Ruins in Cozumel Mexico. I would have to say the cave tubing in Belize was the most fun. Its quite a hike, but well worth it. The others were all very well organized, regardless of debarkation (dock or tender). One word of caution, if you do use a tender, use whatever sea sickness med or remedy you prefer. These boats are not as stable as the large cruise ships. (Olivia) The Camp Carnival was great 6-8's will watch moves, play games, video games, build stuff and they will put a poster was up for making stuff animals it was awesome! Snack before waiting in line 1.50$ Valid Parking 15$ Buying another Snack 3.50$ Seeing your child's face when you walk in ... Priceless
