Default Mr Legend review

Well I just got back from my first cruise - I'll give you the pros and cons

Cons - ....

Pros - everything
This was the absolute perfect vacation. At first my girlfriend and I though we might be too young to criuse. Mistake #1, there is a whole spectrum of ages on cruises.

We thought we might get bored. Mistake #2, there was always something to do. Plus, there ship is so big there is plenty of room to "get away from it all" if you want to.

The food was incredible. If you've been on a cuise before then you know what I'm talking about, if you haven't you don't have a clue what you're in for. Believe it or not I actually lost weght on the cruise. I watched what I ate and worked out a few days. It can be done.

The people on the ship were so friendly. It seemed like we were all on a team. Like if another ship tried to say they were better than us, we all would have kicked their ass. It was great to see how well everyone got along. You could strike up a conversation with anyone.

If you haven't cruised before, you have no idea what you're in for. If you have, I now understand why you booked another cruise.

Later all
Chad

My SO and I took our first cruise in 2001 ( I'm 50, she is 45)! Since then we have taken 5 and will be on our sixth in June on the Legend and also have bought a Marriott timeshare in Aruba!! No more workaholic, party on!!!!! I may be too old to "rock n' roll and too young to die", but as said previous, you are never too old or too you to cruise!!

Good review! Considering I'll be going on the Legend in approx. 18 days. If all goes well on this cruise with my friend and I, I will book another through Carnival and take my girlfriend next year.

Ha_Hah !!! another person has tasted the joys of cruising and will be hooked for life. Welcome to the club !!!!! You might now try the experience of getting a group of your friends together (about 8 to 10 cabins worth), find a great travel agent and go again and utilized the group booking process and cruise for next to nothing...let's see if you each know 100 couples that will be at least 10 cruises. Don't forget to try a number of cruise lines and then decide on 1 or 2 and build up your status in a line's frequent cruiser club !
Now how many days untill your next cruise ?
Tell your girlfriend that you can get married on a cruise ship you know (smile)

We too are going on the Legend 7/18. Very excited about it.
I was wondering if anyone knows if you can rent two way radios? and how much do they cost? or is it best to bring your own. Thanks!

Clarkie - I know what you mean! I was on my 1st cruise last July and I had the time of my life - this July (18th on the Legend) will be my 3rd cruise!! I can't wait - I'm going with about 20 family members and we all range in age! We are all soooo excited!

Brand New Girl - I'm "cruizegal's" niece - - we are on the same cruise!! My brother will be with us and he's 17 turning 18 the week before we cruise! My cousin is 16. And i'm 24! (just thought u'd like to know!)

IS ANYONE ELSE GOING ON THE LEGEND 7/18 who is 21-30????
