    Legend Transatlantic

    Just pulled the trigger on the Legend transatlantic. I wasn't the only one! The room I wanted was already booked 😞 Too excited not to share, though!

    Legend deck plans

    Good afternoon, I haven't cruised on the Spirit class for awhile but I know there use to be a link that you could see which of the deck 4 obstructed view cabins have a bit of a view inbetween the life boats. Can someone point me in the right direction Thank you Kim
  3. Has anyone stayed in Legend room 8220? I’m thinking of booking this for 2 adults + 1 child for Spring Break (March 2020) for the Western Caribbean plus Cozumel 7 day trip. I’ve never been on Carnival before. I’ve only cruised on Disney.
  4. I just posted about the Balcony room 8220. However, I just watched a video on YouTube and it only has a shower. Do all the balcony rooms only have showers? If so, then I would need to book a Suite. I need a bath tub. Has anyone stayed in Legend ship on 6th floor? I normally like to stay on 8th floor. Will I feel the ship rocking a lot at night on 6th floor? I’m considering Suite 6203
  5. We are considering booking a 2020 cruise on the Legend.... We cruised on Carnival about 15 years ago, but have cruised other lines since, so we aren’t really familiar with the Carnival room options, ship layouts, etc. We were planning on booking an ocean view room, but then I came across the 4K interior rooms, which are about $250 cheaper for our trip. Any thoughts on the deck 4 location versus deck 1? And the 4K rooms I’m looking at are 4194 and 4195 (we’re a family of 4, and those are the only quad rooms that appear to be between life boats)... 4195 looks like it is above the Odyssey Lounge - would that be a noisy room location? Thanks for any insights!
  6. We just booked Legend's TA westward last night, great rates, just happened to come across it on-line when browsing, emailed PVP immediately, so excited. Did the TA on the Horizon in May, our first, and thoroughly enjoyed it, time passed incredibly quickly. (I just read the Posts on the Legend Transatlantic but believe most of them are referring to the eastbound itinerary.) Anyone else booked the cruise out of Barcelona for Tampa October 2020?
  7. Hi Anyone knows about those rooms ? They seem to be close to the Atrium. Would it be a noisy area ? Thank you
  8. Hi All, I'm a first time cruiser going on the Carnival Legend from Melbourne to New Zealand return in February 2019 and was wondering if anyone could fill me in on what drink prices are like on the ship. Drinks including: Wine Champagne Beer Spirits Non alcoholic - soft drink, water etc Also, are we able to take 12 cans or bottles of drink on board with us? If so, are they allowed to be alcoholic or only soft drink or bottled water? Thank you for any information, it is really appreciated. Cheers, T
  9. A Trip To Be (or Not To Be?) Eclipsed Carnival Legend, Alaska/Glacier Bay August 15-August 22,2017 We booked our cruise to Alaska in July 2016, over a yearbefore the embarkation date. This was our first trip to Alaska and our first cruise on Carnival. We have been on 2 Royal Caribbean cruises totropical ports. One was a family reunion trip with 40 members of my family andone with just the four of us 10 years ago . Honestly, we prefer land based vacations, but for a trip to Alaska, cruisingwas the best way to get to the different ports since travel between them byland or air is difficult and/or expensive. We were also intrigued by the day we would spend cruising into GlacierBay. Our son Nate (19) is starting his sophomore year in collegewith a Wildlife Conservation and Biology major, so this trip really spoke tohis interests. Our son Ben (16) will bea junior in high school, with interests in history and geo-politics. We are not sure where their future plans willtake them with jobs or internships, so for the past few years, we have plannedannual dream vacations since “It might be the last chance to travel together asa family” In 2014, we went to Disneyland and Hawaii. Yellowstone in 2015. Washington DC the following year. And a couple of trips to Universal Orlando thrown in for good measure. I guess we have been blessed with a few “last chances” Our itinerary for this trip: Monday August 14- Fly from Boston to Seattle on DeltaAirlines, 7 am to 10:30 (with 3 hour time change). Check into the Hampton Inn, a couple ofblocks from the Space Needle. ExploreSeattle for the day. Tuesday- Cruise Day! We booked Seattle Shuttle to take us to and from Pier 91 and boarded theCarnival Legend at 11:30 am Wednesday- At Sea Thursday- Juneau 2 pm to 10 pm: Whale Watch and MendenhallGlacier through Juneau Whale Watch Friday- Skagway 7 am to 9 pm: Skagway Scenic Tour bookedthrough the ship Saturday- Glacier Bay Sunday- Ketchikan, 7 am 1 pm: Alaska Bear Adventure booked through the ship Monday- At Sea*, Victoria 7:30 pm to midnight Tuesday- Debarkation in Seattle, 8 am. Check into Hampton Inn, explore Seattle Wednesday, August 23- Flight from Seattle to Boston (9:30 amto 6 pm, 3 hour time difference) * About a month before the cruise, Nate asked “What are thedates of our cruise?” Turns out that wewould be cruising off the coast of Vancouver Island during the August 21 solareclipse, a few hundred miles from the path of totality. The event would be after breakfast, in the 10am to 11 am timeframe. We were able toget eclipse glasses (from ebay, express shipping) under the wire a couple ofdays before leaving for Seattle. Phew! That morning, the last full day of our trip, we woke to thesound of foghorn blast every 5 minutes or so and ZERO visibility… All Aboard!
  10. Hi there, is anyone going on the south pacific cruise on the 30th november? Also if any of you have ever been on a south pacific cruise, please feel free to reply to this topic. Love, angie.w
  11. I saw this on facebook, not sure if it is posted on carnival website yet:
  12. I was looking over a previous "Fun Times" and I saw a blurb about a "Dreams Studio" sign up.. it seems it's basically a private photo shoot.. has anyone done this? If so.. -Do you get to choose the location? Are there multiple locations? -Are their multiple time slots available? How flexible are the times? -Is there a fee for the sitting? -Do you review/purchase pictures in the same format as other photos? -Do they offer any specials for purchasing a "package" of portraits? Overall experience? Better/Same as Formal Night portraits? Worth the time? Thanks for your insight!
  13. Hello ~ We sailed the Carnival Legend on July 31, 2018 for our 30th anniversary. This was our 5th cruise and our first vacation in 15 years without the kids! (they're now 26 & 21). We had a balcony cabin on deck 7 and had FTTF. Thoughts on the Legend: We liked the layout. It compared in size to the Freedom. The dining room was at the back and not in the center to cut up the decks. Most things were on Deck 2 Promenade.....Dining at the back....Alchemy bar....Red Frog Pub......Coffee bar.......Casino....etc. Deck 3 had the piano bar, shops, pictures. We really liked the Firebird Lounge location and design - it was deck 1 very front underneath the show lounge. Nice size, big stage, much better seating arrangement than other comedy clubs on other ships. The decor was like all the rest. Glass staircase going up to the Steakhouse. The Lido was unusual. The very back was the Serenity area with a pool & hot tub. Next was the Lido buffet, then the "covered pool" where Guys Burgers, Blue Igauna Burrito bar, the Red Frog Rum Bar & Blue Iguana Cantina & the stage for the DJ. On nice days, they retract the roof. But after that is another lido pool area that is uncovered all the time & is quieter. (Sometimes it was too hot to sit around the covered pool) The Legend also has the traditional mini golf, basketball, ping pong, and waterworks slides. Each pool area also has a hot tub. We flew from Kansas City to Seattle via Delta and landed at 9:00 am. We stayed at the Sleep Inn SeaTac. We had originally booked a downtown hotel to be close to stuff but they were all approx $350+ per night. I cancelled & changed to the Sleep Inn for $165. It was recently renovated & included free breakfast. Their shuttle transferred to/from the airport and restaurants close by. It picked us up, we checked in early, and then it dropped us off at the Blue light rail station. (Angle Park). I have 1600 photos & bad internet. I'll try posting the beginning without any....

    Legend Table Tops

    In June of 2019, we will be on the Legend with a family group of 11 in 3 cabins. Will we be able to sit together at one table for the evening meal in the dining room? Should we plan on two tables? Thank you for your knowledge.
  15. Its Long! I don't know how to post pictures. We choose this cruise with 19 friends, as our bucket list Alaskan cruise that it took in Glacier bay and a full day in Victoria and at most ports. Our ports were Juneau, Skagway, Ketchikan, Victoria and a full day sailing around Glacier bay, plus 2 sea days, we departed on Tuesday and arrived back Wednesday the following week. We arrived Seattle from Houston, Texas and used Citypass, our group arrived at various times on mostly the Saturday and Sunday before the Cruise on Tuesday. We arrived Saturday, we walked down to pikes Market and had a bite to eat, Booked our Harbor Cruise included in Citypass for Monday and walked around we brought the Citypass online and this came in very handy. Sunday we went to the Woodlake Zoo and really enjoyed it saw a lot of animals and the zoo is set out really nicely and a lot of up close and personal experiences we enjoyed this attraction the best of all in Seattle. We also did the harbor cruise, Space Needle and Aquarium. We are a country and western dancers and our group of friends are too, we love to dance two step, waltz, polka etc and where from Texas, so we checked out the Little Red Hen and they had a great country band playing Sunday evening and we all went and danced up a storm. We stayed at the Hyatt Olive 8 which was really nice and we had the awaken package that included breakfast (very good) in their restaurant we booked with points so sorry I don't know the cost. its was walking distance to most things, if I had to do again I would stay closer to the water. We used Lyft or Uber to get everywhere its cheap and simple way to go, if you share you get them even cheaper. Me (53) and my hubby also 53 have cruised the Caribbean before but not Alaska. I turned Platinum this cruise so that was a nice advantage and not having to purchase faster to the fun. We were actually the 2nd and 3rd people to board this cruise behind one lady in a wheelchair. We had booked this cruise 2 years ago! and it was long awaited we were so excited. Alaska was beautiful. We had a Balcony Midship cabin on the 6th floor, cabin 6251 and we loved the location very handy for everything the cabin was a little in need of a spruce up and deep clean and the beds were pretty uncomfortable we usually love the beds! We Loved Alaska but out of 12 cruises we would not do this again, we would do the land options, the people onboard are mostly elderly and have a bad attitude, they were surly and rude, being old should not give you that attitude, we are a friendly bunch but we felt that there wasn't many friendly people on the ship and they keep it 100 degrees onboard. Our cabin had a few mishaps the cabin was boiling hot when we got onboard they sent a maintenance man and put in a brand new thermostat, plus we also got a fan (had no feet on this box fan so we set up on stool :-), The day of Glacier Bay our cabin door would no longer open, they sent an officer down to look (I don't think they believed us and then he sent for the maintenance guy who had to remove the handle and rejig it, were on friendly terms with him now ;-), then a few days later our toilet flushed brown for a few hours, made a call but they said it was rust in the lines and that to keep flushing! Gag LOL. Our bed came apart the leg from the base it was the last thing that went wrong! We don't complain about stuff like that but I thought they might have sent us a sorry note! LOL Our room steward was good Tri was his name and we tip pretty good we had service twice a day and asked for extra towels and ice that was it really. We loved all the ports and had a great time, Juneau (2pm-11pm) We were disappointed, as I had booked the Seaplane 5 Glacier viewing and Taku lodge salmon bake excursion as my husbands Christmas present as we both had never been on a seaplane before and we met in the Lounge onboard to depart, we departed to the pier were they told us it was cancelled! just like that!! We waited 45 mins in that lounge and no one said a word about it. So standing on the pier with our day semi ruined we were so looking forward to that adventure, I grabbed the Carnival rep and managed to get us on the Mendenhall Glacier and wild life adventure $400! refund of $600+ from the Seaplane one. This one was good we saw humpback whales and Orca whales sealions far away but I guess as close as a two story boat can get, no food, only for purchase, and got to Mendenhall with only 55 minutes left to see it so too late to walk to the falls and it was raining and 7pm by now! we came back to the ship around 8:15pm a quick trip to a gift shop at port after and ate pizza starving, we made the most of it but would have been nice to have a little more notice on the cancellation. Skagway (8am-7pm) We did the train white pass up and back in the morning and it was pretty and we enjoyed it. In the afternoon we went Ocean Rafting this was fun, didn't see a lot of wild life but we had fun and the scenery was breathtaking. Glacier Bay was awesome! The coldest day only day I wore thermal long johns and shirt, I was so worried about what to wear on this trip but most of the time, jeans sneakers, tshirt and rain jacket, only needed the fleece for glacier bay and whale boat trip, most of the time it was hot! Ketchikan (10am-10pm) We did the lumberjack show which we just purchased when we got there $39.99 and then my friend had booked a taxi tour, I went out with the girls that morning as my husband did the the fishing trip with another friend. we had a lot of fun and its a very pictureque town and the beautiful Creek Street, went to a totem pole place, waterfalls etc. we saw a lot of salmon trying to get upstream and seals trying to eat them, and bald eagles etc. Victoria (10am-10pm) Went to Butchart Gardens they were beautiful, expensive about $70 for two to get in, Cab fare was $55 dollars Canadian try to take small bills, the Canadians will not break them and its $1.20 Canadian to a US dollar, they sucked at breaking them or giving US change back. No one would change a $100 bill US they wanted to give us Canadian dollars back. live and learn, after the gardens we had lunch over looking the marina and went got a couple of fridge magnets and Christmas ornament we might have brought more if they gave us the dollars back. went back to ship. Can't tell you a lot about entertainment we went to the casino we brought mexican train dominos with us and played that with our group, its very different from the fun with Caribbean cruise, our group did frequent the red frog pub and some one ships on sticks for air guitar etc. We enjoyed it but wouldn't do it again, we got to see Alaska and that's why we were on it. Food was good and we did steakhouse one night and Chefs Table another night. Staff were excellent as usual.
  16. We are deciding between the Miracle and the Legend and I have a few questions... - am I correct that neither have the seaside theater? - do either show movies in an inside room? - do either have free on demand movies in the cabins? Thanks! Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  17. Just to let everyone know, all of the 4K cabin French doors on the Legend have been sealed closed. I confirmed this with Carnival today. You can also check out the Carnival website, that's how I stumbled on the change. The cabin description that had read "Interior with French Doors" now reads "Interior with Window". I am currently booked on the Legend for the Journeys cruise from Vancouver to Hawaii. I am in one of these 4K rooms specifically for the ability to open the French doors (we did Alaska in a 4K room and loved it). I am very upset for a couple of reasons. Carnival is not bothering to notify anyone that they have downgraded these rooms. Also, as far as I am concerned, Carnival owes anyone that booked one of these rooms some onboard credit of at least the amount that was paid to upgrade to French doors. They don't see it that way. They don't feel the need to notify anyone of the change. I spent over a couple of hours on the phone with them today and all that they offered (after a lot of pressing) was a $25 onboard credit or we could cancel our cruise. That does not come close to covering the amount that was paid to upgrade to a 4K. Anyone that booked a 4K on the Legend while it was being advertised as having the French doors need to call Carnival customer service and complain. At the very least, you might get a bit of credit. Hopefully if they get enough calls they will realize that they did not handle this properly. Sad these are sealed, but hey, it's their ship. However, this is not fair for those that booked before the change. I would have been really pissed if I did not find out about the sealed doors until I got in the cabin and I'm sure no one else will appreciate the surprise either.:mad:

  19. Does anyone know what updates are planned for the spring 2018 Legend dry dock?
  20. Wondering how long the Legend was docked in Victoria for...? Some reviews are saying they only had 4 hours of land time. Our itinerary says we dock at 10 am and leave at 10 pm. Any 2018 experiences would be much appreciated. Thanks!

    Red Frog Appetizers on LEGEND

    I love the appetizers at the Red Frog Pub - coconut shrimp, grouper fingers, etc. Does the Red Frog on the LEGEND have those too ?

    LEGEND Creativity at Sea

    Does the LEGEND have Creativity at Sea ?
  24. Hi. We are making a thread for any questions related to the Legend. We are leaving on Sunday so if there are any specific questions we'll be happy to try and get the answers next week. :)
  25. Hi we are looking at above cruise but it appears that the CHEERS drinks package is not available on the Legend? I see his applies to cruises in Australia but does it apply to cruises coming from US? and also have a query about gratuities - again as the cruise is sailing into Australia do gratuities apply and can they be prepaid? Any comments/advice about this cruise appreciated - I read some reviews that there were a lot of unruly children on this cruise last year - am hoping this is not the norm. Thanks in advance for any advice on this
