  1. Thanks for the review - they are almost all the same about the overcrowding. The leaking, well I agree with you there - you don't want to see that when sailing in the middle of the ocean! I have also read that the crew is fantastic, which helps the overall experience. I'm hoping Carnival gets this feedback and will maybe make some changes to the Radiance refurb. I wonder if they could do anything to save the Sunrise? I'm sailing in to weeks from today and have a May 2020 cruise booked - based on all I'm reading I have a feeling the May cruise will be switched to the Legend. We don't do the buffet often, accept the first day. We also try and spend time in the Serenity area. Hoping September is less crowded.
  2. HOLLAND AMERICA BOARD'S FUTURE CRUISE LISTING Updated August 16th, 2019 We all love to hear what cruises you are booked on. I post the Bon Voyage threads 7 days before sailing so, to be included in this, you need to post your details here to allow sufficient time to be on the updated Future Cruise Listing. It’s better to post earlier than later but if it is later please post THREE weeks in advance to make sure it doesn’t get missed. We would also be interested to know if this is your first cruise, your first HAL cruise or if you are celebrating a birthday or anniversary. Details needed are in the 2nd post of this thread. Please use REPLY and not QUOTE when posting to this thread. Using 'Quote' makes a very long thread and difficult for others to read. While this list is a lot of fun, please don't mistake it for a Roll Call thread. You can go to the Roll Call Section here on Cruise Critic and find your cruise to sign up there too. That's where your Meet & Greet planning, tour sharing, and other activities specific to your cruise will be happening. This week’s additions and changes are in BOLD and highlighted in aqua (sea colours).

  3. And right on queue, here he is posting more insulting innuendos to bolster his own frail ego. Predictable as always and obnoxious as on past posts. A legend in his own mind. The troll is strong in this one.

  5. We are sailing on the Carnival Legend Dec. 15th. We live north of Tampa and would love to spend a night pre-cruise in Tampa and leave our car at a hotel and have shuttle service to the port and return. Can anyone recommend a hotel, if one exists that would provide this service? I really want to get to know Tampa better a nd I thought this would be a great way of doing it. Thank you for any suggestions! Paul
  6. Legend of the sess lovely ship 😊
  7. I have searched all the cruise sites I am familiar with and I can't get any info on this cabin 5183. It is listed as obstructed. Has anyone been in this cabin & if so can you provide info and photos?
  8. Just got home from this cruise, first time to Alaska. Loved, loved, loved the scenery! Hated, hated, hated the weather! It really wasn't bad for Alaska, but I'm used to sailing in January to the Caribbean. Nice change from our weather in Ohio. This cruise, it was 30 degrees colder than at home and I paid to go there. Worst part was all the cloths yah gotta take and all the changing yah gotta do during the trip. I did remember to bring 2 pairs of swimming trunks, never took either out of the suitcase. But, Alaska is gorgeous and a must do! IMO, best port is Ketchikan. Best excursion hands down, seaplane over 5 glaciers in Juneau. Pleasantly surprised by Victoria BC, beautiful port/city. About the ship, love the Spirit class, did Miracle to Hawaii. Found the decor a little dark on the Legend but the layout is great. Chandaliers in the MRD hideous. Have no idea why they put waterworks on the back. Entertainment in theater was poor! Food, about the same as other ships. Steakhouse was OK, not great. Bonzai Sushi was great! Platinum gift was a lanyard.......how sad. Do they REALLY think the platinum cruisers need a lanyard? They used to give them away in the casino. Speaking of, hammered the slots, got back all my wife lost. Seattle very interesting port to sail in/out. Anyway, epic experience, but I'll stick to the warm ports going forward.
  9. We are looking at booking the Carnival Legend from Dover England to Norway in June 2020. The cruise is perfect for us. We love Carnival. We have sailed on the Legend before and really liked it. And this cruise travels to the ports we are most interested in. My main concern is this cruise is the only time Carnival takes this particular route. Would that concern you? I don't know why, but it concerns me a little bit. Has anyone had experience with itineraries Carnival doesn't "do" very often? TIA!
  10. I have gotten WiFi on board the Wind Surf in the past with okay results- what is everyone's experience with the WiFi on the Star Legend? I called Windstar and they said it was only good for email. Thanks
  11. Will be cruising on Legend next Jan. Wondering if people with experience in late dining found there were things that were missed due to dining time. I know usually shows are presented twice—but always? What about comedy club etc. I don’t like eating late but we’re in a group that may warrant that if we are to be together.
  12. We here In Australia have been so so lucky, having a Spirit designed ship down here all year round (The Spirit) for the last 7 years & also have another Spirit designed ship (The Legend) for 7 months a year. have done 17 cruises on these ship's & will be back on in 6 days. sailing out of Sydney again. They are spacey, great having Serenity at the back out of the wind. One large dining room & Main Showroom also. Going to miss having the Legend not coming here anymore, as we will have The Splendor & bigger ship (To have more passengers cruise & increase revenue). From December..
  13. So, I just booked the Legend western Caribbean cruise. Due to several unforeseen circumstances, we're now on a major budget for this cruise. I'm on the lookout for reduced price Carnival gift cards, checking my AmEx card regularly for their Carnival sales, and flying on a combo of points and companion certificates (2 full price, 4 "free"). We will have some OBC though. Can anyone give any tips/tricks for cheap excursions in Belize, Mahogany Bay, Grand Cayman, and Cozumel? 2 adults, 3 teens and a preteen.
  14. Below is a list of the ships in the fleet. Cruise Directors play an important role in the entertainment onboard, and their assistant is the Activity Manager. If you know the name of the Activity Manager onboard one of the ships, please reply.

  15. I have been on the Miracle 4 times, Pride and Legend once each. My favorite class of ship by far. I don't need all the toys they are adding to the newer ships and the crowds. We were on the Legend June 25th to Alaska and this is my favorite cruise of all time. We had rooms 6232 and 6234 and opened the divider to have a balcony 6 lengths long and extended width to go with it 😎
  16. In many cases a journey's cruise will be a re-positioning of the ship from one port to another. I've done 2 of these cruises. One was on the Pride which was a 14 day to move the ship from Tampa to Baltimore. This cruise included a partial transit through the Panama Canal. The second cruise was the Legend for 11 days to move the ship from Vancouver to Sydney via Hawaii. I did the Vancouver to Hawaii portion but not the Hawaii to Sydney portion. As mentioned by others above, Carnival will also do a few extra things during journey cruises.
  17. This thread is near identical to one that has been running on the Seabourn board last month. What follows will no doubt be disregarded or dismissed by some – it is after all a little lengthy, for which I make no apologies. I find the thread to be truly depressing in parts. The statement that most closely reflects how I am feeling at the moment was made by kjbacon in post #56. >>It is hard for me to understand how anyone can still be in a mindset that doesn’t care about taking steps to help our environment.<< I respectfully post some random comments that those naysayers on here may wish to consider. 1. This issue of disposable water bottles isn’t just about carbon footprint, as some posters appear to suggest. Single use plastic is a scourge on our (natural) world. 2. Some may have heard about a UK broadcasting legend named Sir David Attenborough. Last year he featured in the latest of his many TV documentaries – Blue Planet II. The programme shows, in graphic detail, the devastating impact that single use plastic is having on ocean life – even when you think you've done the right thing by dropping it in a recycling bin ! Perhaps watch this series on PBS or whatever and then decide how precious your 500ml single use plastic bottle of water, or plastic straw is ! 3. In many parts of the developed world the impact of consumer behaviour can be directly linked to the decisions of the company. To take two of Regent’s recent decisions – this initial move to plastic free water bottles, and the significant increase in the Vegan/Vegetarian food offering on their ships. Mostly they haven’t done this for PR or political reasons. They are not fools. Their research must surely be telling them that this is what their current – and future – customers want, and if they don’t act they will be out of line with their customers needs. They will ultimately save money, and many of their customers will be happy - Win/Win. 4. To those on here from the USA who have been stating how wonderful their water is at home. I quote a post from the Seabourn thread (from an apparently intelligent and informed person from Florida, USA) …. our tap water in the US is awful. It’s a national disgrace. Our FDA has set minimum amounts of lead, arsenic and glyphosate allowed (omg). But some 3000 municipal water systems can’t even meet those standards. (Yet despite this some people on here appear to be worried about an apparently decent purification system being used on Regent ships). 5. A final thought - on a single 14 day cruise on a typical Regent ship, with each passenger using say 2 single use bottles a day - this equals nearly 25,000 plastic bottles in the trash - on just one cruise ! Yes – it’s us that are discarding these bottles, and it is so unnecessary. I’m most certainly not an environmental warrior - just a 60 something ordinary guy in the street. I carry an easy to clean reusable water bottle with me wherever I go, refilling it at available sources. I will be bringing it with me to our next Regent cruise in 5 weeks time, and aim to not use their single use bottles. For medical reasons I need to have ‘sippable' water with me at all times, so if I can get by without disposable plastic bottles surely anybody can ? I am confident that the initial actions by Regent being discussed here will ultimately result in the taking of a single use plastic bottle of water becoming as anti social as smoking in a restaurant ! For those that believe that they will still be here in 2030 I predict that there will not be single use water bottles on a cruise ship – or many other places for that matter – in 10 years time. Flame away !
  18. We love the Legend and the Miracle and agree with the OP and have sailed on them a number of times. The Miracle has left Tampa (our hometown port), but the Legend is now sailing from there, so very convenient for us.
  19. In the next seven months, I will earn an Oasis and Majesty that I need. I am also working on a trade for Rhapsody. Those 3 will get me to 23 . What I will still need are the Empress, Independence, Legend, Quantum, Sovereign, Spectrum and Splendour. .
  20. Not to mention cabin 4228. AMAZING suite cabin with wrap balcony. Will be sailing on the Legend in Europe next year and are so looking forward to it.
  21. Someone gave you some bad info. My wife and I will both be sailing on our 50th. cruise next month on the Legend 16 day Vancouver to Hawaii to LA trip. We went ahead and splurged with a Vista suite since we'll both be receiving 50% of the cruise fare in OBC. 😃 Try calling the Milestone desk @ 1-877-225-8477. Good luck and congrats on the 50!!
  22. 5 trips on the Legend, 4 trips on the Miracle and 7 on the Pride. Love the Spirit-class ships. We were in an aft balcony (7351) on our last trip (8/04 - 8/11/19) and we felt no vibrations from the azipods.
  23. Yup, sailed the Miracle to Hawaii + back, loved the ship. Just got off Legend to Alaska, loved it also. Booked Panorama for Jan + already dreading the lines. Soooo, booked Pride Panama canal Journey cruise for Jan 2021
  24. My 2nd HAL cruise was on Zuiderdam and I loved it. It is very much like the Spirit-class ships. I've only ever had 3 balcony cabins on Carnival, all on my 3 Spirit-class sailings. First time on Miracle had an extended side cabin. Thought the extra cost for the couple extra square feet of space wasn't worth it, especially since I like to watch the docking and the lifeboats block the view straight down. Next time, for my Platinum cruise, I did an aft on Deck 4. Loved it. So, on my one Pride sailing, I got a very rare no-solo-supplement so booked the same aft cabin. Much more vibration on Pride! In fact, it was so bad on that last night (maybe because of a slower speed returning to B'more?) that I was awakened over and over and over. It was literally like someone had grabbed me by the shoulder and shaken me awake. I had about 6 hours to drive home and I was concerned the entire way that I'd fall asleep at the wheel despite lots of caffeine. Will never again do an aft on Pride - not even anything farther back than midship, just in case. Anyway, love the class ship. Am terribly disappointed that the 4K French Doors have been removed (apparently on all except Miracle). I booked one with a great between-the-lifeboats view for the Legend B2B and then found out that the doors were gone and it's a large window. Personally, if I can't have a balcony, I prefer an inside. I don't WANT natural light because I wake at the first hint of dawn, which is fine normally, but not when I'm cruising and stay up much later (and drink much more) than normal!! But I'm keeping the cabin because by the time I found this out, the locations of the insides available were not what I wanted. Oh well! Should've done my homework!!
  25. For those of us who sailed on and remember the little sisters, Windstar is spending $256 million to stretch (adding 50 new suites) and modernize them. See the following article. https://www.cruiseindustrynews.com/cruise-news/19952-windstar-to-stretch-three-ships-in-250-million-refurbishment.html
