    After reading lots of reviews and going over itineraries and talking to my travel agent I think I have decided on the Legend Western Caribbean cruise for next Dec. for a group of friends.
    Is this a good choice? I like the idea of being on the ship alot--I like Costa Rica(been there), Panama sound interesting and always wanted to see Belize.
    I would love any input on this ship or the ports.
    Its 8 days and looks like for outside cabin it would be around $900.00 out the door with $100. per cabin ship board credit. That is for a cat. 8A balcony. Is that a fair price??
    Thanks--You guys are a real help and have all kinds of ideas I would never think of!

    Sounds good to me! I have been on that itinerary also. Be sure to do the Panama Canal tour -- the one that takes all day. You won't be sorry! Happy Sails!!!!!!!!

    I love the Legend, one of my favorite ships. The layout is great, easy to get around. I can' t comment on the ports though. I think you made a good choice.

    Thanks guys. We will do the Panama Canal tour. Do you have to do that through the ship or can you set it up ahead of time?

    Not sure about arranging the Panama Canal tour off ship. We just booked the Carnival Excursion. We loved Beliz and did the Altun Ha and River Wallace tour. In Costa Rica we did the Green Train -- the train is actually blue, it is the scenery that is green. A great way to see the Costa Rican countryside. We booked all tours through Carnival.

    Keep in mind as well, it was the "Spirit Class" ships that moved Carnival out of the party ship reputation. I've sailed her twice, the first time was an E. Caribbean cruise, and we loved her so much, we booked it again later for a 2 day cruise to nowhere last year in October before they repositioned her back to Florida.

    You always make a good choice with the Spirit ships.

    We went on the Legend at Easter time and it was fantastic. Our 14 Yr.Old Son had the time of his life and the food was out of this world.

    Glad to hear that the Legend is a good choice, because we are booked on her for November. We are also doing the Belize, Costa Rica and Panama itinerary. This will be our second time to Belize; however, it will be our first time doing the "cave tubing" there. Heard nothing but positive comments about that!

    I've been on 13 cruises, with 4 more booked. Of those 13 cruises 2 have been on Carnival and the Legend was the second of those two. The Legend is the ship that has brought me back to considering Carnival for future cruises again. She is a lovely ship, the perfect size.

    I did a partial Panama Canal transit on the Island Princess and according the cruise line (and I have no reason to doubt that this is the truth) - all shore excursions booked for the Panama Canal must be booked through the ship per the Panama Canal Authority. Otherwise you have to stay on the ship. Bite the bullet and do the trip suggested above - you will not regret it!

    The Legend is a great choice, you will really enjoy it. We did the southern Carib. on our Legend cruise. Have not been to the ports you are going to, but hey, it's a cruise. How can that be bad?? Besides, you got a very nice price for a balcony for 8 nights. Have a good time and report back afterwards.

    Thanks everyone!
    You have made me breath easy about the choice of this cruise for Dec. When your "in charge" it is a little scarey. Hey, like you say just enjoy, its a cruise and thats how I feel. I really don't care where it goes I just want to be on the ship. So if I understand correctly we have to book an excursion for Panama from the ship? As long as I budget this in and know ahead of time thats fine. I just have never done any excursion from the ship--they are always so expensive and I feel like I am on a cattle call---but---if need be---I will do what I gotta do.
    Thanks so much for all your suggestions and help!

    Try going on all the different review boards and i'm sure you will find 99% of the reviews are positive.I don't think I have ever seen so many positive reviews on any ship as this one. It is really amazing, and I always check the reviews before I book.There are a lot of so called premium lines out there that would like to have these kind of reviews. Viet
