I went to Canada on the Victory (Sister ship) in May 2001. The weather was a foggy, rainy 43 degrees at sea and 48 degrees on land, although it did warm up to about 60 in Halifax once the sun came out. It was 70 degrees the week before I went there so I guess it all depends on when you go. I'm sure it will be a little warmer in September since the summer is just starting to wind down but I would definitely take some sweatshirts especially for being out at sea.
Can someone please explain the difference in the 246 sq. ft. balcony cabin and the 225 sq. ft. balcony cabin, other than the fact that it is obviously larger? Where, exactly, is the additional square footage?
Just booked the Legend today (9/17) for next May 13, 2003. That is the first cruise
going to San Juan, St Thomas/StJohn and Tortola/Virgin Gorda, called the
Carribean from New York. Have sailed with Carnival approx 12 cruises since 1994
and really looking forward to the Sprit class. No airfare this time for us too since
we live in Harrisburg, Pa
PBP, Both balcony staterooms are 185 sq feet. The standard room has a balcony that measures 40 sq feet. So the combined size of these rooms is listed at 225 sq feet. Staterooms with extended balconies are listed at 246 sq feet. The additional sq footage is in the size of the larger balcony. Hope this helps.
That's exactly what I wanted to know. I'm a fairly loyal Celebrity cruiser and have only sailed on the Carnival Ecstacy for a 3-night cruise several years ago. But I absolutely love the Legend's itinerary to Costa Rica, Panama and Belize and think I might give it a try.
hopefully, some of these posters are back from their cruises by now...please, please tell us what you thought of her! we're going april 3, 2003 and absolutely can't wait! we sailed the spirit to alaska 3 months ago and loved it...in fact we got our same cabin number on the legend this coming cruise, so gordon, you're not alone in that respect!
waiting breathlessly for news....
We are going on the Legend, january 29- feb 6 south-western caribbean. St. Martin, Barbardos, and Martinque. Anyone else going on this trip? We are taking the 5A cat. French doors Level. Can anyone tell me about that room?
We're just back from the 9/22 NE/Canada cruise. The Legend is a fine ship. Good layout, very good food. I heard some complaints about the shore excursions, but some of the ports were new to Carnival. You'll have a good time for sure!
Hi, Marlyn! My husband Breeze & I will be on the Legend also (on our honeymoon) & it's going to be our 1st balcony as well! Can't wait! Have you started packing yet? Breeze is half-way there, I've just sorted which clothes I'm taking & which ones I'm not - but haven't gotten my suitcases out of the attic.
I think we should have a mini-C@s party on board, as there are a couple of other posters here that are going as well. Should be a real hoot!!! ;-)
27 days till we leave for Ft. Lauderdale & the Carnival Legend!!!
