My overall cruise experience on the Legend was very good. Although, I would say that the service on the ship was very good, I did feel like there were some areas that could have been better. The really good service came from the bar and wait staff on the lido deck, as well as the food service there. The formal dinning service was shaky to start but got much better as we went along, so I still give them a passing grade. Previously (9 years ago) I cruised on the Carnival Triumph and never noticed room service trays, glasses, cans and or bottles left in the hall overnight or throughout the day. On the Legend, I only had to ask for fresh towels one time. The quality of the food no matter where you ate, in my opinion was great! The staff I came in contact with in the casino did a great job. My final observation was that the photo staff were a bit hard to deal with, both photographers and at the desk. Now, having said that, I still give the Carnival Legend a passing grade.

The food was really good! In the Truffels Dinning Room...Get The Ribs! On The Lido Deck, everything was very good.

My stateroom was just fine.

There were plenty of onboard activities. we were never in need of something to do.

Stingray Beach in Grand Cayman was great. Our guide really spent lots of time with everyone. I didn't have a good experience on Rum Point Beach but I seemed to be the only one so I guess it was just me. DO NOT MISS the 360 Twister and the trip to Passion Isle. Passion Isle may be the best beach I've ever been to and the 360 TWISTER boat ride that gets you there will be the best boat ride you've ever had. On Roatan Island I enjoyed the Kayak and snorkeling.

Even with my few complaints our trip was great. It was a sad day when we had to leave the Legend. Also, the ships Captain and crew did a fantastic job of out running a tropical depression and kept everyting in order.
