  1. 11/17/19 on the Legend out of Tampa, stopping at Grand Cayman, Roatan, Belize and Cozumel. So happy we got our cruise in when we did! It was out first cruise in a long time and we were able to visit my aunt in Roatan (she just retired there.) :)
  2. We were on the Legend a few weeks ago and it didn't have this new system. There were no slots. Light switches worked just by turning them on and off. :)
  3. I think maybe it depends on ship/deck? We were just on Legend, Deck 4 in an aft extended. Our walls were the same as side balconies because we were lower. If you wanted to see or talk to neighbors, you had to lean around just like a side balcony. The ceiling of ours also went to the balcony railing. I noticed on decks above us, the ceiling didn't cover the entire balcony and their walls had a slant to them, giving more view/access to your neighbor's balcony. For us, we only saw neighbors out once the entire cruise... it was when we were docking in Roatan. So we had an entirely different experience... so quiet back there with zero traffic in the hall by our room. Sorry you didn't enjoy your aft extended experience. It was our first time as well and I guess we got lucky with our room location.
  4. Sorry, I'm not sure. We were in port most of the time allowed each time and never ventured around on the ship while in port. I even forgot to see if there was a special in the Red Frog Pub on embarkation day!
  5. I was concerned about a 45 minute ride too but it wasn't bad at all. We decided last minute to purchase this excursion because there really is nothing to do in port unless you go on an excursion. And everything is 45 minutes to longer. My husband can't stand being on a bus for a long period of time, so we chose a boat excursion. And the 45 minutes didn't seem like 45 minutes. The tour operator gave a lot of info about his country during the ride, even having the captain stop and point out the mangroves and he explained the importance of the mangroves to the environment. He was very informative about his country and it was obvious he loves to tell people about it. And the snorkeling, swimming with sharks and stingrays and feeding the tarpons were so cool! We'd highly recommend this excursion!

  8. I do have them! I meant to scan them in but then got busy with work and holiday prep when we got back. I’ll try to remember to scan them in tomorrow!
  9. Loved the location and the room/balcony! It was quiet there because zero people walk by the room. I think we saw two people one time (our neighbors). And that was it. And we loved the location of the balcony! Also, the room was just one flight down to the dining room. And a quick elevator ride to the Serenity pool deck area!
  10. We did Your Time Dining and with our favorite server, our dinners weren't super long. They were probably an hour to an hour and a half long but sometimes we dragged it out for a bit during dessert with a cup of coffee or two. We could've been out quicker. We were never there 2 hours. However, the one day that we had a different server, we waited a long time in between courses... that was also the first Elegant Night and the servers kept getting dragged away to sing Happy Birthday to numerous tables.
  11. We were just on Legend out of Tampa. Two of our ports, Belize and Roatan, were an hour behind ship time (which was same as homeport, Tampa, time). Ship time never changed... it stayed the same as Tampa time the entire cruise. And our departure/arrival times were always based on ship time/homeport time.
  12. Debarkation Day: We got up early, around 6am. We ate our last breakfast in the Lido. 😞 Then we finished packing up and left our cabin for the last time. 4230 was a great home away from home. We took the elevator down one floor and joined the other FTTF people in Truffles restaurant at 7:30am. We were off the ship and in a cab by 8am. We were at the airport by 8:20am. We actually got another rental car for the day because our flight wasn't until 5:10pm. We drove around the beach for a bit and then joined hubby's sister and her family for lunch. We were back at the airport by 3 where we watched the Lions lose again. Lol. We were home by 8pm. Thankfully the snow had melted and it wasn't as cold as when we left. Our cruise was definitely Legendary and we're so happy we cruised the Western Caribbean with her! Feel free to ask me any questions! I'll try to answer the best that I can!
  13. Day 7, Sea Day: Since today was going to be a leisurely day, we did some relaxing. We skipped the Lido for breakfast today. We went right to the Serenity Deck around 9am. The sun didn't stay out for long, so we decided to go to the Sea Day Brunch. It wasn't as great as we hoped for. We were sat right away but so was everybody else around the same time. We sat in a section next to Volodymyr (should've requested him) and it looked our server was in the weeds. He had a bunch of new tables. We waited for about 15 minutes before our drink order was taken. And then it took a long time for the food order to be taken. When the food finally, came, along with all of the other tables' food, my husband's food was cold. He just pushed it aside. The server did come over and chat for a long bit about this and that... you could tell he was trying to make sure we weren't too upset. We were ok. It wasn't the breakfast hubby had hoped for but it was ok, he'd get food later. He was a little annoyed but not upset. It was no biggie. We went back to the Serenity Deck and our new friends joined us soon afterwards. We noticed people complaining about the hot tub water temp. Apparently it was too hot again... I mean scalding hot. People next to use complained and soon the head pool guy came and took the water temp. It was 114 degrees! He closed it down. So hubby went in the pool and we chatted with him from the poo bench. Soon the water level started dropping and the pool girl told him he had to get out. She said a pump stopped working. The pool drained completely and then a mechanic came out and the head pool guy again. After awhile, the mechanic left and the head pool guy told the "pool watcher girl" to close it up. So she started trying to put a net across it. She was handling it fine but kind of struggling. It looked difficult to maneuver by oneself, especially while her boss stood there looking at his phone. I said "I wish I could help you, you look like you could use a hand." Another lady chimed in and said the same thing. The head pool guy looked at me, put his phone away and stepped in to help her. 🙂 We sat on the lounge chairs for a bit waiting to see if the pool would open but then it was time for me to head to Dreamteam to watch the OSU vs Penn State game. the guys went to smoke a quick cigar and my friend was going to change and then join me. I went down to the sports bar & saw a bar full of Buckeyes watching the end of Game Day. I pulled up some chairs for us and sat down, ready to watch the game of the week! 🙂 At 12pm, the tv switched to Harvard vs Yale. The other tv was Auburn vs Stanford. Huh? People started questioning the bartender. He said they didn't have Fox, only ESPN an ESPN2. I felt bad for him. It wasn't his fault but there were some VERY upset football fans in there. We couldn't watch the game at all. Michigan fans were happy though because they knew their game would be on ESPN at 3:30. So at 3:30, hubby and I went down to watch his game. Guess what? It wasn't on either. The tvs were airing Kentucky vs UT something or other and Cricket. Huh? Man, this was bad. So my one complaint about Carnival was their lack of sports channels and poor programming. Bad for College Football fans on Saturday aboard the Legend. 😞 We took a great nap. We had a great dinner. And then we had so much fun playing 80's music trivia with Frankie in the Colossus lobby bar. We got all but the last one right...guessing Frankie's fave 80s song (Don't Stop Believing). So much fun! We packed most of our stuff but didn't put it out. We were doing self assist with early debarkation with FTTF people. We watched the last 2 comedy shows and went to bed.
