Wow, what an experience! We left Dover, England on September 24, 2013 and arrived in New York City on October 10, 2013. If you hate flying like we do, you should consider a Trans-Atlantic re-positioning cruise as an alternative. We visited Dover, Dublin, Glasgow, Belfast, Reykjavik, Qaqortoq, and St. John's. Plus, the best part, was a deviation in our route encouraged by the Cruise Director, John Heald, wherein the captain had an "ice-captain" come on board to navigate so that we could cruise through the Prince Christian Sound in southern Greenland. There is only one settlement there, Aappilattoq (population 132 in 2010), which John Heald and crew visited so that they could mail our postcards (provided by the Carnival Legend) home. Our postcard, however, never made it back to our home address; but the experience of seeing all those glaciers was magnificent! I would not hesitate to take another re-positioning cruise. The crew on the Legend was superb - they never stopped cleaning to keep us from getting sick - and the entertainment was the best. Thank you Carnival for making a memory that will last a lifetime!

Cabin Review

Balcony

Cabin 8F

Lovely cabin. Upgraded from an obstructed view for a nominal cost a few weeks before departure. The balcony was lovely for taking photographs, but the weather was so cold that it was not useful otherwise. Plenty of storage and the couch was a nice alternative for sitting. Loved the vanity area with mirror for putting on makeup.
