Legend review (part 2)


Recommended Posts


I found this area to be a big disappointment compared to my other cruises, it was lacking the razzle dazzle. The Welcome Aboard show consisted of Chris our cruise director talking to us (he is very pleasant), two of the carnival singers singing a song (in normal street clothes, normal stage lighting), and then the audience participation doing the spoon exchange, (also done on Sensation). Chris neglected to tell us until the very end that the comedian didn’t make the ship. He is from NJ and got snowed in (he was the same comedian we had on the Sensation). Not Carnivals fault but had we known there wasn’t a comedian we would have left the show earlier. Late night comedy show the next night cancelled for the same reason. The second show was called Jazz Hot with the Carnival dancers and singers. It was very enjoyable, they played a lot of Big Band music (not a big fan of it) but it was still nice. The third day was Chis Jefferson (our cruise director) doing the british invasion and musical-instrumentalist Roger Homefield. Although Chris is very talented my thought was, is Carnival trying to save money on entertainment. Once again the show consisted of basic lighting (although it wasn’t supposed to be this way, they were having problems). Roger Homefield plays so many instruments and sings. The fourth day we opted out of the entertainment as it was Christopher Allen Graves in the Singin with the Big Band (again not fond of big band) but heard it was a good show. The midnight adult comedian was great (not for the faint at heart). The fifth night was The Village Idiots, juggling, comedy and Zany show time (not my words but Carnivals). The act was corny, and jokes slapstick but I still enjoyed it, although again basic lighting. Fifth day was talent show night, the people who sang were very talented, one guy use to actually sing for Carnival as entertainment. The end of the talent show was the best, they had audience participation. Sixth night was the carnival dancers and singers, this show started off as very good but half way through the show they stopped it due to technical difficulties (were told the show would finish the next night but it never happened). The adult comedian that night was enjoyable. The final night of entertainment was the comedian from the night before (not as funny trying to keep it PG rated), and a Motown singer. They had major problems with lighting again, regular stage lights, regular house lights on, and the lights kept going on and off completely. I felt bad for the singer. People were just getting up and leaving. I felt Carnival was aware of the problems all week but never addressed it.


Weather, pool, games, etc.

The weather was great, we had a cloudy day in St. Martin, and on our last sea day an overcast and cold (69 degrees, this coming from a Massachusetts gal) day. No rain what so ever (although I thought it was raining a few mornings but it turned out they were washing the decks above and the water poured onto our balcony room 7195.) The last sea day was rough, the winds were 40 mph, they closed the top decks. Even the captain made a comment about the movement of the ship (it calmed down just in time for late sitting.) I didn’t participate or view any pool games as they were the same as my last cruise. Getting a chair to sun in was absolutely no problem. I didn’t find any problems with smoking either with the exception of a few bars and casino being a little smoky at times (of course that didn’t stop me from enjoying these).

I found the cabin to be a good size with plenty of storage, although we could have used more hangers this time. The bathroom was on the small size but typical cruise size. I do like having a shower curtain vs a plastic/glass doors as it doesn't feel as confined. This was our first time having a balcony so I can't comment on the extended part. I can tell you I doubt I will ever cruise with an inside cabin unless someone elses is paying. The balcony was wonderful, we actually stayed there during our sail away (avoided those pesky photographers). Took a few sun set pictures as well as a sun rise from the balcony as well. Just be careful when in port if you are parked across from another ship as you can see into the rooms.

I take a bonine every night. On the day the ship rocked so much I ended up taking two bonine's and laid down in bed and watched television for a few hours in the afternoon (too cold to stay pool side). I didn't really see anyone getting sick or hear of anyone either. I realized just from that day I would never book during hurricane season, only because I don't enjoy that much motion.
