A Cruise to Hell & Back !!!

Sail Date: September 2010
Destination: Western Caribbean
Embarkation: Tampa
We sailed out of Tampa on The Carnival Legend ( 9/12/2010 ), and we had a easy access to the VIP lounge and right onto the ship. We first ate lunch on the Lido Deck , due to our room not being ready till 1:30 ( most expected ), to make this all short and sweet we both loved the Excursions that we chose on Grand Cayman , Cayman Islands (Stingray City , Turtle Farm , and yes we even went to HELL )and on Isla Roatan , Honduras (Semi-Submarine , Tour of West End Village , and The Cameo Factory ( where I had a surprise waiting for my wonderful bride ).We also visited Cozumel , Mexico ( Did Shopping ) And we visited Belize City , and "you better Belize it"... One Barrel Rum , OH MY...

The stay on the ship was wonderful,we became rock and roll addicts when were at sea ( but to be expected ) we were just on the south edge of Tropical Storm Karl, WOO HOO .... Our room Steward was the best... Our meals were awesome ( since I didn't have to prepare them for a week ) ....We ate in More Truffles Dining Room every night but one , we ate in the Golden Fleece Steak House (OH MY )... We ate breakfast and lunch both in the Truffles Dining Room , on the Lido Deck and even called Room Service a few times...

The BAD things I didn't like about this cruise were you couldn't get near a pool or hot tub to speak of ... We paid for a Stateroom with a balcony, and our neighbors practically lived out on theirs SMOKING , Leaving there Balcony light on all night ( which shined into our room )....The other thing that made us so mad is that they would flick there butts into the water ...NOT GOOD !!! So all I can say to those who read this IF you have a problem with someone smoking... You probably should get an Ocean View Stateroom... And to Complain to someone on the ship about it does not work !!! Other than these few things our Vacation alone was awesome !!! We cruise again in 355 days to Eastern Caribbean on the Carnival Destiny !!! Less

Cabin review: OS6327 Ocean Suite

Very Nice Spacious Room , Bed A Little Hard , Very Quiet , Great View , Couldn't enjoy our balcony as much as we would of liked too ... All Cruise Lines Should Make all Smokers Pay More and should make them take Staterooms in the AFT of the Ship ... So The Ship Leaves A Trail Of Smoke ... Neighbors in stateroom 6323 kept there balcony light on all night and kept us awake , even with the drapes closed , and they kept smoking on there balcony and We have Asthma , and they kept flicking there Cigarette butts in to the water , other that that , very clean and a special thanks to our steward (Giddings Fitzroy)... What a superb job and he even had a extension cord waiting for my CPAP Machine...

Port and Shore Excursions

Tender Boat to port (15 minutes) , Port-side was clean and the shops were newer looking , we just shopped around , had a snack , and tasted the Islands Famous One-Barrel Rum , (Didn't try the Five-Barrel Rum), And I had A Belize Special Rum And Coke ,, YEE HAW !!! 3 5oz shots of White Belize Rum 3 5oz shots of Belize Dark Rum and a splash of Coke !!! I'm sure glad we had a tender boat ride back to the ship !!!

And when you are there in Belize and you want a drink , all I can say is that ( YOU BETTER BELIZE IT ) ....

Port-side was very new , was very well arranged and clean !!! Was kinda disappointed that we docked at the new pier cause We really wanted to go to Senor Frogs for a drink and come to find out it was at the other pier and a taxi ride to the other pier was $ 20.00 pp one way .... We did end up at a nice place called Pablo's ... and yes we now know that the Mexican Heritage can PARTY .... My wife Had a Mango Margarita w/3 5 oz shots of Tequila , and I had a Plain Margarita w/ 3 11 oz shots of Tequila ... all I can Say is OH MY!!

Tender Boat into Port ( 4 minutes ) Port-side was very unusual , very small area to try and find out Information , If you didn't have a excursion booked I think you would be lost ...

We booked a tour through Carnival and it took us to Stingray City , to swim with the stingrays , Then to the Turtle Farm ,, We held the turtles ... Then we went to HELL , and no it was not hot there , it was rainy and 75 degrees... And yes they do sell Ice Water there ... Heehaw !!!

Mahogany Bay , Roatan very new , very awesome !!! Again If you didn't have a excursion booked , you had a mighty long walk up a steep incline and down a steep decline to get a taxi , or unless you were there to shop then it was ok , slight incline from pier...

We again booked our Excursion through Carnival and we went to by bus to the West End Village to meet up with the Semi Submarine , very awesome coral reef and lots of colorful fish... Then we toured the shops in the village and met up with people running a shop from our home state .... Then it was off to the Cameo Factory where I had a surprise waiting for my lovely bride ( A Cameo made just for her , with two Dolphins).... But read this carefully , You gentlemen who want to do this for your loved one , call 3 to 4 months in advance to your arrival ...

Embarkation Day ,Very clean and fast paced getting you on board !!! Except the long line at Security !!!

Debarkation went really smooth after we had to wait 2 hours , they make all passengers get out of there staterooms by 8 am , and wait till your category or deck level is called, Self Assist first then everyone else !!! I really think it should be VIP first then everyone else , but that's just my opinion ...

Baggage check point and Customs/Security check was smooth ,,, Other than that this a awesome time to have fun in the sun !!!

And A Special Thanks To All Carnival Legend Staff and The Carnival Staff When Booking This Cruise ... THANK YOU

P.S I Really Believe It wasn't Carnivals Fault That There Is Some Dumb People In This World That Don't Know How to Respect Others
