Summary:  Returned 13 Sept 2013 from Norway and Northern Europe trip. First morning out, the sea was rough and while I was in the bathroom the ship lurched and I fell backwards into the shower - back still aching (I noticed that there were no rails in bathroom which might have prevented my fall) so older people beware! Entertainment was v. good but ship rather shabby and very dark. Was mildly shocked when I entered for the first time. The food in Lido not that good and food in dining room mostly lukewarm. It was my first time with Carnival Legend and I shall not be returning!!

Summary:  We have recently returned from a baltic cruise on the Carnival Legend, sailing between 20/8 and 1/9. Our party ages were 73yrs, 50 yrs, 15 yrs and 12 yrs. We shared an inside cabin which we got for a great price with Iglu Cruise. Having booked it as a special treat for my family, and then read some of the reviews about the ship my heart was in my mouth as we boarded the ship. All I can say is...I had nothing to fear. We had a fabulous holiday and much of that was due to the Carnival team. The ship may not be the biggest, newest or have the best facilities but she has great character. The entertainment, led by John and Calvyn, was brilliant. From the highly professional shows to the off the cuff, low cost game shows and trivia competitions. It really was wall to wall entertainment that kept all of us amused. Lots of variety and lots of opportunity to join in if the mood struck. The ship was generally very clean, gym well equipped with some good quality free classes, and staff friendly and helpful. The shops on board were well stocked with a wide range of goods ranging from very good value to well beyond our means, but thats what shopping is about. The drinks at the bars were well priced with an especially good range of non alcoholic drinks and cocktails offered (for those too young to have alcohol but too old to just drink soda all night). The circle c kids club provided much appreciated activities and fun for our 12 year old who disappeared every evening with her new friends. The food in the truffles restaurant was very good and varied. Especially the hot chocolate melting cake! The steakhouse (extra cost) was phenominal and worth every penny. A visit here is a must. Unfortunately the food and service in the buffet restaurant ( the unicorn) was disappointing, with queues, slow replenishment of foods, and Luke warm food. The breakfast was particularly poor. If this was sorted out the Legend would feature much higher up the ratings list. This apart, and all things considered, we would rate this ship as 7/10. And would we travel with them again? Definitely.

Summary:  We recently sailed on Carnival Legend to the Baltic. I must say that the ship first sailed in 2002 and badly needed a restoration. The hand sanitisers sometimes were not working, most of the staff did not smile at you as with other ships, but most of all, the food was terrible. The choice of food in the Lido was bad and cold and you had to walk a distance to the salad bar or the grill if these were required also, although the grill was only open until 6pm, so if you wanted chips with your meal... tough! The restaurant on deck 2 and 3 was very good but on fine dining you could be waiting half an hour to get a table. I was disappointed that nothing was given to us for our 34th wedding anniversary altough they were advised of this. However the itinery for the cruise was very good. The palaces at St Petersburg were worth seeing (Do get the trips for 2 days with Carnival as they take care of the visa required here). Tallin was like a lovely medieval town and we loved Copenhagen. We did not go into Berlin as the trips were expensive and you travel for hours before getting there, so we stayed in Wardemunde which was lovely with all the stalls at the pier. Helsinki was awful- a large city with nothing to see but expensive stores.

Summary:  Just returned from the Baltic. Great ports, terrible ship. Stateroom and steward excellent, but food in both the main restaurant and the buffet left a lot to be desired. Sent several plates back because the the food was at best lukewarm. The navigation channel on the tv wasn't working and there was no chart to be found anywhere on the vessel. Daytime entertainment on sea days was dire. One day there were 17 trivia sessions. Most of the evening entertainment wasn't much better. One really good act in the main theatre during the 12 days, however the Carnival Band musicians were the best I have heard on a cruise ship. Well done lads. My first cruise was years ago on the Carnival Inspiration and I became a confirmed cruiser. Sadly, unless Carnival stops cutting costs and ups its game, there's little chance I will be back on board.

Summary:  The Carnival Legend was a perfect sized and beautiful ship. The adult pool was brilliant for late night chill. The service was quite good. Also the Legend has a mini-golf course which my little girl has won in the tournament. The waterslide was really fun. Not to mention, there are plenty of seat around the pool. Our room was an ocean view, it also have floor to ceiling French Doors. The steaks and ribs are so tender and juicy. The big production shows were very impressive. Sadly the trip rain most of the time. I guess we will visit again. Hopefully better luck with the weather next time.
