We are considering taking the caribbean cruise out of NY next year on the Carnival Legend--has anyone done this cruise, or cruised this ship? What did you think about the ship or ports? All comments would be appreciated.
The Legend is a brand new ship. According to my Carnival brochure, the first sailing out of New York is September 22nd. The Legend is identical to the Carnival Pride, which I sailed on this past January. The Pride was an absolutely beautiful ship!
Be sure to check out Tero's wonderful pictures of the Legend in the photo galleries - they're under Helsinki Legend near the top. She is absolutely beautiful!
Breeze & I are really excited that we'll be enjoying our honeymoon in our 1st balcony on her for the inaugural Caribbean cruise (from Ft. Lauderdale), November 10, 2002.
Hi, just read your message, writing to you from Scotland U.K. Four of us join the Legend on Wednesday 21st August, 2002. Just after the Legend christening ceremony,
we sail from Harwich, England, U.K. to Amsterdam, this is a short trip that Carnival has offered to test the Legend out, the price was very reasonable and I can't think of a better way to be a "guinea pig". The pictures of the Legend look fantastic, but none of us have ever cruises with Carnival before, so time will tell!
My husband and I have cruised on RCCL nine times, once with Princess Cruises , and once with NCL, it will be interesting to see Carnival in action! We are currently looking at a cruise to Hawaii for next year!
I'll let you know what we all think of the Legend.
Irene, you are so lucky. Carnival met and exceeded our expectation on her sister ship the Pride. Be ready to be amazed. Keep in mind the crew may be new too, so don't expect perfection. Try out as many lounges and eating areas as you can. Variety was great on the Pride. Don't miss the spa jacuzzi and the great showers in this area. They are sure unique. From the new pictures just posted, its hard to tell what the colors may reflect. I see a lot of gold, red and solid wood tones. We thought the cabins were great in size and very subued with light woods and coral, taupes, and burnt orange tones. Let us know what you think about her.
Do let us know what you think of Carnival. I think that you will enjoy them. I am sailing on the Legend November 10th out of Ft. Lauderdale. I booked the exact same cabin as we had on the Pride in April. A cat. 11 aft suite with a wrap around balcony. If the Legend is half as good as the Pride then all will be good Have a great cruise next week!
