Default Legend Info and Room help

My spouse and I are hoping to travel on Carnival's Legend this summer (from NYC).

I've begun my research on the net with several reviews that I have found very helpful, but we were curious about the pros and cons to choosing a particular location for our room. For those of you with cruise experience on the Legend (or her sister ships), on which floor would you prefer to stay? Are there and advantages or disadvantages to having a room at either "far" end of the ship?

Thanks for your time!

The middle of the ship is the place for the least motion, if motion might bother you.

Personally, I don't think the deck matters. They charge more for the higher decks though, perhaps for a higher view, but I wouldn't care which deck.

I'm going balcony guarantee again. Last time we were mid-ship up three decks from what we booked, this time I don't care as long as we have a balcony.

We sailed the Legend in March and booked a Cat. 7A guarantee and were upgraded to an 8A on Deck 4. We stepped out of our cabin and were 8 steps from the atrium elevators and stairs. VERY convenient. One deck down was upper level dining room. Two decks down were the atrium lobby bar, Casino, etc. Step onto the elevator and press 9 and you're direclty in the buffet restaurant.!!

I would book that level again in a heartbeat.! I did gain a few pounds, though. We always used the elevators to go from deck 4 to deck 9 for the pool and buffet.

Hope this helps. I also hope to have my pictures in the gallery real soon.

Happy Sailing!!

We sailed on the Lwgend in December and was upgraded to an outside obstructed view on the Upper Deck. Was all over the ship and believe that there isn't a bad location. good luck.

We were just in Cabin #7258, Verandah deck, Category 8G. This is one of six Cat. 8 cabins that have a HUGE balcony - at least triple length of all Cat. 8's and is the wider width too. You will see 2 at the Port side, towards the stern near the elevators in the Striped layouts. Of the 6, three are designated Handicapped. The balcony had two full size lounge chairs, an Adirondack style chair, a regular chair and small table. We really enjoyed this spot. You are two below the Lido deck, buffet and stern pool and elevator noise is no problem at all. I am now really spoiled.
Bon Voyage

i am very interested in that room with the mega-balcony, room number 7258. how did you happen to book this particular room? did you just ask for it by room number when you made your reservations? i have been playing with room numbers on various cruises on expedia, and that room nevers comes up as available. did you say that some of them are reserved for handicapped?

Always use a travel agent if you want something specific. Besides, their rates are usualy better than expedia...

My husband and I are on the Legend sailing June 14, 2003. We can't wait! The ship
looks gorgeous and almost everyone has raved about it. (Seems there are always
bound to be a few unhappy people.) We booked a category 11 suite guarantee.
Has anyone else been in a category 11? Anyone else tried a guarentee on the Legend?
Last summer we did this on the Century Mercury and ended up with an upgrade to
the next level suite. We enjoyed the Mercury but wanted a change of pace and a little more
action. This will be our first Carnival cruise. Any tips or suggestions?

You need to have a travel agent ask for a specific cabin when it involves the odd shape or bigger balcony cabins. We booked a specific category on the Glory and asked for a certain aft cabin because of wider balcony (side to side) like the one Nana mentions.

In some cases, it is just better to book with a "live" voice!

Ask your TA when I booked on the Conquest my TA told me alot of cabins had been assigned and she found me some good ones on the main deck. I heard alot of complaining from people on the Conquest that booked a quarantee thinking they would get good upgrades instead found them selfs in the category they booked and not in the best locations.

We had a cat. 11 suite on the Pride which is a sister ship to the Legend. It was very nice. Having a separate dressing room was the best part since we had our teens in the room with us. We had cabin #6258 which probably has one of the smallest balconies of all the 11's but it was still plenty big enough. If you have one of the 11's that are midship or on the sides but almost aft, your cabin will be much like ours. The ones with the wraparound balconies are all different.

Hi I'm booking the Legend for Aug 11th of 2004. My concern is the balcony. I have 2 children in the room with me and as much as I would love a balcony, could you please tell me if you believe it is safe for children. Is there a "high" lock on the balcony door etc.... Also, how windy does it get out there. Thanx for your help!
