HMMM,,not a lot there that we didn't already know. I'd really be interested to know what the problem actually is, and how, and when they plan to "fix" it! I'd love to book "Legend" again. HMMMM Maybe I can get an extra good "Pack-n-Go" on her in the near future! ;-) I personally couldn't care less where she sails to. She can go around in circles as far as I'm concerned.

I was on this cruise. The Legend docked aprox 8 hours late at around 3PM. Passengers were kept at the Tampa Airport Marriott in a meeting room. Carnival provided a sack lunch and we sat around the pool drinking beer until bus boarding at about 6:30 PM. Got to the cabin about 7:30 and sailed about 10PM. The schedule was changed three different times because they were still working on the problem for several days. Finally it was fixed and the ship would make 22 knots. Never knew what the real problem was but some Carnival people were saying it was computer related and part of the engine controls system. Who Knows?????? For all of our trouble Carnival gave us a free glass of champagne at dinner the first night.
