Carnival back to back

Review for Carnival Legend to Europe - Eastern Mediterranean

From the oppressive decor ( more like a mausoleum than a fun ship ) to the absence of interaction with entertainment and other senior staff. We also stayed on for the following cruise from Dover to Northern Europe and back to Dover. Other than the cruise director was John and not Brent (yes, Brent was very poor in the role and obviously had issues with Calvyn, his assistant ), nothing was ...

Embarkation at Barcelona was smooth and we were on the boat at lunchtime. See later for the disembarkation fiasco! Our first impression was that we were in a great aunt's cluttered living room! The decor is just so busy that it hurts your eyes until you learn to ignore it. I suspect someone was supposed to order 50 grey plastic urns (they look like the European football cup) and accidentally ...

This is our first European cruise. We are three people, husband, wife and daughter. We have cruised many times [mainly in the Caribbean] and have witnessed a steady deterioration in Carnival. THE GOOD: The itinerary ,only 2 days at sea [out of 12] with an overnite in Venice to begin the cruise; We arrived in Venice at 9;30 after an overnite flight ,took a cab to the ship [45euros]; were at the ...

We boarded Carnival Legend on May 4th 2013, sailed on 5th May. To say we were welcomed and treated with the best hospitality by all the crew, from the cabin steward through to the amazing dining room staff is an understatement. Our boarding procedure was very swift and easy, to finding our cabin was a really good size. We were a group of 5 couples travelling together for 3 of our special ...

Departing port of Venice was convenient and well organised by Carnival. We stayed 2 nights in Venice prior to embarking on the cruise which gave us time to explore this amazing port at our leisure. The Carnival Legend is a floating Las Vegas hotel. The buffet was good and similar to what we have had in Las Vegas. Plenty of food good variety. The main dinning was good quality and the waiters were ...

This was our 1st Carnival cruise & we booked it all online which was very easy.We booked the Carnival Legend for a 12 night tour of the Mediterranean starting at Venice & finishing at Barcelona. My husband & I & 2 friends booked balcony cabins on deck 7. The rooms were very spacious, had loads of storage & the bathrooms well equiped with toiletries. We each had a thick bathrobe & towels for the ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 40s

Had to cut my earlier review due to time but wanted to take this opportunity to conclude my experiences on the Legend. I left off with the food and although the food was not 5 star quality you must be realistic with yourselves and ask this question. Where can I go and have a 5 star meal morning, day and night for 7 days and not pay out of your @$$ for it? I wanted to end this review on a ...

We took the Carnival Legend out of Tampa for a Western Caribbean cruise in December of 2011. I traveled with my husband and 2 ½ year old son. This is just a brief review of some of our experiences. I learned some tips and tricks from CC which helped me greatly but I also learned that I need to take some tips with a grain of salt too! Flying in and out of Tampa with Delta from Detroit was ...

We have cruised with several lines and hadn't booked with Carnival since 1999 because we really enjoyed Freestyle Cruising on NCL unless there was a specific itinerary we wanted on an alternate line. That said, since March, 2010 until our departure February 27, 2011 we have cruised on Carnival 3 times because of several birthday celebrations. During the past year we've been on the Glory, Triumph ...

My husband and I went on the cruise February 26th, 2012. Western Caribbean. Room 8162. I did a lot of looking and reading reviews prior to going. If i was to believe all the things that people wrote on here i would not have gone. But lucky for us we had gone on 2 previous cruises and knew better. Most of the people that take the time to write the bad reviews are just wrong and need to get a ...
