Just back from Legend -- mini review

Recommended Posts

We returned from eight days on the Legend yesterday. I'll try to write a more comprehensive review later, but here are some initial thoughts.

 

First of all, we had a wonderful time. Yes, there were a few glitches, but overall, I'd rate my time there a 9 out of 10!

 

This was our second cruise; the first was on the Legend's sister ship, the Spirit, last summer. I liked that I was familiar with the layout, and felt "at home" from the beginning. I thought the ship was lovely. There were sections of it that reminded me of Caesar's Palace in Vegas -- but I like sparkly things!

 

In an odd coincidence, we and our travelling companions (coming from opposite coasts) lost luggage on the planes. Carnival got all the luggage to us on the first sea day.

 

Some highlights:

 

The sloth sanctuary in Costa Rica. As a person particularly interested in natural history, I loved this tour. I opted out of the river boat section, and spent that time talking to the owners of the sanctuary. Very interesting.

 

Embara Indian Village in Panama. Indigenous peoples who have accultuated very little to modern day society. Again, very informative.

 

Golden Fleece Supper Club. Definitely worth the extra money, but be sure to set aside several hours. Ours lasted three hours. Oh... I beg of all cruisers with small children -- PLLLLEEEEASSSSEEE do not bring your infant/toddler to the supper club. Kids do not enjoy three hour fine dining experiences. (Fortunately, they were on dessert as we began our appetizers.)

 

My husband loved the casino (you know your significant other has spent too much time there when the casino manager sends a bottle of wine to your table at dinner!). I sat and watched the water, planned out my new quilts, read, and, yes, munched all day long.

 

If anyone has any questions, I'll be glad to try to answer them!

Yikes. I meant first port day. Sorry.
