  1. anyone have any photos of the ship or better still the cabins since it went into drydock last year?
  2. Amber; the only real difference is:1 Dive-in movies on Spirit is on deck 9 at the pool. On Legend it's in the Comedy club. 2.The legend has 4K rooms where the windows don't open. The Spirits open. To let in fresh air. We have had both these ships here in Australia for the last 5 years.. Been on both over 8 times. Oh the Spirit also is not as bad decor as legend (The Urn's) Enjoy...
  3. We are going on our first Alaskan cruise Next June. We have sailed on the Miracle and the Legend. I know they are the same class of ship. The photos of the Legend after being in dry dock are lovely. Has the Spirit had the same? Second Week in June. One week round trip from Seattle.. What would you pack? Where would you stay at the airport if you flew in a day early? Thank you in advance. Most of what I know about cruising I learned from this board. It is a true treasure.
  4. Has anyone cruised on legends 8232? pros and cons thanks to all
  5. Hi all. Just off the Carnival Legend 7/9-7/16 sailing to Alaska. Willing to answer any questions but wanted to give a specific shout out to Jonathan in the Piano Bar. He may have been the best I have ever seen...talented, energetic, and he really got the crowds going each night. Full bar most nights, too. Played without break starting at 9pm every night but the last one. If you are a piano bar aficionado you won't want to miss him.
  6. My husband and I are novice cruisers- one cruise last summer on the Allure of the Seas. We'd be cruising with 3 teens and a preteen, 2 rooms (unless we get a great deal on 3). Has to be certain dates so the ones that work as of now are: Legend out of Tampa- ports are Grand Cayman, Mahogany Bay, Belize, Cozumel Magic out of FL- half moon cay, grand turk, amber cove Glory out of NOLA- Montego Bay, Grand Cayman, Cozumel Prices are similar although the Magic is a day less. Ports are most important to my husband (and I know they can reroute us with no notice), ship is more important to me. Keep the kids in mind as well. Anyone have suggestions on which to do? I've read so many reviews my eyes are crossing. Pros/cons of any or all of these ships or ports? I know all of these will be a step down from Allure but also half the price (and no RC cruises fit our dates and are similar in price).
  7. HOLLAND AMERICA BOARD'S FUTURE CRUISE LISTING - Updated July 19th, 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).

  8. For those of us who sailed on and remember the little sisters, Windstar is spending $256 million to stretch (adding 50 new suites) and modernize them. See the following article. https://www.cruiseindustrynews.com/cruise-news/19952-windstar-to-stretch-three-ships-in-250-million-refurbishment.html
  9. I'll toss in my two cents.. My two favorite ships are the Magic and the Miracle (which is a sister to the Legend, I've also cruised the Pride, the third of the four spirit class ships). I LOVE the Magic. The layout (super easy to navigate), the size (not too big and not too small), the food (the bbq is fantastic!), and the rooms. I also LOVE the Miracle (Legend). The layout is also very easy to navigate. There isn't much ship to get lost on, and I don't hate smaller ships. They are somewhat outdated compared to the newer glitzier ships. The last time I was on the Miracle it definitely could have used the facelift, but the rooms are just as comfortable as on the Magic. With that said, we picked the Magic for our winter break cruise this year when I decided paying 2500$ for airfare to san juan was stupid and not worth it. I really struggled because I wanted to pick Harmony of the Seas (my name is Harmony and how cool would that be!) but I also struggle on massive ships. The Kiddo (she's 15 now, but was 12/13 the first time we were on the Magic) LOVED the Magic and really thought the activities were awesome, so we went for that and I haven't regretted it. I don't know much about the Glory, except she's bigger than the Legend, and smaller than the Magic.
  10. We are sailing on Windstar-Star Legend in August 2020. Any input on pre cruise hotels and what we should see/do as well as how many days we should plan. Thanks
  11. That is great news! Our first cruise was on Legend of the Seas out of Brisbane in 2016. What an amazing city! There will be no hesitation to fly back for a visit, and possibly a cruise, if a chance ($$$) comes up.
  12. I guess it is good to clarify, any of the suggestions in this feed may cause a reaction in certain individuals. There are just some that affect a wider group than others. I know, just from my group of friends, that a substantial amount of them are allergic to something in fabric softeners and fabric softener sheets. Thieves oil traditionally has clove, cinnamon bark, eucalyptus, rosemary, and sometimes lemon. You can search "thieves" or any of the individual ingredients to find studies. If a "study" tries to pass off the thieves oil legend during the bubonic plague as historical or scientific fact, stop reading and move on to the next hit. Again, most every hack in this thread would work for me, but I have to do extra research because of my wife's sensitivities.
  13. What is it like to cruise from NYC? We are booked on the May 2020 cruise on the Legend out of NYC. What are some of the best Hotels to stay at ? Is it a rough ride from port to the open waters? Is there anything else we might need to know? How about the Legend...have you sailed her before? Thanks for your help!
  14. Detailed and current photos from this Cruise Critic site https://www.cruisecritic.com/photos/ships/carnival-legend-253/
  15. There is a very good overview of the Carnival Legend posted recently on You Tube by Life with Favor. 20 videos in all!
  16. We are booked on the Legend in 6232 to Alaska next month. I can't wait to enjoy this wonderful balcony!
  17. Hello! I LOVE reading cruise trip reports. I have been reading every one I can get my hands on since we booked our Alaskan Cruise. I recently had the pleasure of coming across one by Anita Latte. In addition to reporting on her trip, Mrs. Latte also chronicled her planning/thought process. It was fantastic. And so I thought...”I should do that!” It may not be great journalism or perfect photography, but I may just be able to put out something that will be interesting or helpful to others planning Alaskan cruises. My plan is to discuss some of my planning and then transition into a trip report when we return. So here goes nothing....
  18. Does anyone have recent copies of the fun times for Alaska, on the Legend? we are sailing in a week and I wondered about breakfast and lunch dining options. One of our travelers has a serious food allergy I know it will be best for him to have meals on the dining room.
  19. Totally agree, wripro. We are booked for October 17, 2020, on Legend. Our TA has arranged for a group of us to sail then. This will be our fourth voyage on Legend, obviously the previous three under Seabourn, and she is my favorite of the Sisters. We are looking forward to seeing her refurbishment and happy that Legend will have a new lease on life for another thirty years.
  20. We have a inside room on the Carnival Legend. Where is the best place to see Glacier Bay. Do you need to be up early to find a seat or spot? thanks
  21. We have stayed in the Miracle cabin 6232 and are booked in 6232 on the Legend for December which is 2 floors down from yours. 10x18 balcony. Covered. 2 lounge chairs with table and 2 regular chairs with table. Close to elevators but no noise. Wonderful cabin. Not my pic below, but rather one I pulled off Google. This is an accurate photo though. Only con is you hate leaving the balcony to go get a drink.
  22. Hey! I am of similar age to your kids myself, not off topic, so I can offer a perspective of what they may want! Activities Choice: Given you've already been on the Allure, you would find similar activities on the Magic. All three of your ships of choice have water slides. Arguably, Magic has better waterslides, though if your kids prefer trapdoor slides, Legend would be the way to go. Only on Magic do you have SportSquare, which includes table tennis, a pool table, and best of all, a ropes course! Also, on Legend and Magic, there is a full sized basketball court, instead of the smaller, half court and sky-dome observatory thing on the Glory. So, to appeal to your teens, I would choose the Magic, based on ship alone. Itinerary Choice: Well, what ports haven't you been too? Since I haven't been to any of the ports in that list, except for Grand Turk, to me any itinerary would appeal to me. I would, however, choose the Legend as it is a 7 day cruise with four new ports for me. Overall Choice: If I were to rank the your choices from first to third, here would be the results: 1st: Magic 2nd: Legend 3rd: Glory Hope that helps in your decision making!
  23. I just returned from a 12-day itinerary on the Star Legend from Seward to Vancouver. It was the second year we did an Alaskan Star Legend cruise, and this one was even better than last year's. The three kayaking excursions I did with the Expedition Team contributed enormously to my overall enjoyment of the cruise. We were actually thinking about going back again next year to do this new itinerary. However, if there are no kayaking excursions available in 2020, we will not consider this. I will ask my TA to look into this. It appears this itinerary is offered twice in 2020.
  24. 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. Adventure OTS – Allure OTS - Anthem OTS – Brilliance OTS – Enchantment OTS – Explorer OTS – Freedom OTS - Grandeur OTS – Independence OTS - Jewel OTS - Legend OTS - Liberty OTS - Majesty OTS - Mariner OTS - Navigator OTS - Oasis OTS - Quantum OTS - Radiance OTS - Rhapsody OTS - Serenade OTS – Splendour OTS – Vision OTS - Voyager OTS -
  25. I haven't been on the Legend, but have been on the Miracle and the Pride, her sisters, and they're great ships! Smaller, which I think isn't a bad thing, and all around a good time.
