Carnival Legend image
This was our first time going on a cruise, and everyone that we talked to stated that Carnival Cruise Lines was the fun cruise line to go on if we wanted to have a really good time.

We believed everything and the hype, but what we found was that the Carnival experience was anything but fun.

We boarded in Tamp at the port to set sail on 9/23/2012 and went to the Serenity Deck, only to find that there were absolutely no open seats, chair hogs had already taken everything.

We had to grab some food and stand around until we had our rooms come available later in the afternoon.

The cabin itself was very nice it was clean and had some pretty decent space, so we were pleased with this.

Where our cabin was though, all we could hear every evening was elephants above our heads making noise, like they were banging. Our room was directly below the main walkway near slot machines, so it was as loud as anything.

We reported this to guest services but they saw nothing wrong with what we were going through.

They should not even have offered the room to guests to be honest due to the loud noise. The grill closed too early at 6 p.m., as did the restaurant Chopsticks.

We took in a few shows but to be honest the crowd was very old, it was like a retirement home after the 8 p.m. show ended.

We were excited for our first cruise, but this was really not what we were looking for from Carnival, not the fun ships!
