  3. Carnival Legend
We recently cruised on the Legend. While we took some fun excursions, overall it was a mediocre experience. We picked this trip, as it is close to our birthdays and anniversary, and because we wanted to see some of the ruins in Belize. Our overall impression was that the crew of the Legend do not seem very happy. I can’t remember a cruise where so few of the crew spoke to us, and even members of the fun squad were not that energetic. Our room seemed too warm, but after discussing it with our steward, visiting guest services twice and leaving them a note, we gave up and did our best to deal with it, but I never felt like anyone really cared. The live music, especially the Polaris Trio, was very good. We did find an excellent team in the Dining room and the food was good. We felt that our Belize excursion was very rushed, and not very informative, and that the description of the excursion we did in Cozumel was a little misleading. Disembarkation was a nightmare, there were only 2 customs agents. I’m not sure that’s Carnivals fault, but it seems like they could press the ports to make sure the trips end on a positive note.

Not a Legend-ary Cruise

Cabin Review

Nice enough but it was always too warm, and we never felt like anyone cared. The location was really good, close to most of the indoor activities.
