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.
