Impeccable customer service

published

Booked my second carnival cruise with my family this year and there was an issue with my future cruise credit which a helpful lady named Pam from the lead desk took the time to resolve for me. It was quite a lengthy and difficult situation and she handled it very professionally and made the whole booking process much easier for me. Very impressed with her service.

Good cruise but will never recommend the Island of Mare

published

Our family of 4 adults and 2 pre-teens booked 2 adjoining balcony cabins. The art in the room was ugly showing a winged boy with his hand over the breast of a woman. Truly ugly and inappropriate. We enjoyed the cruise and the staff. The Islands of Noumea and Pines was fine but Mare was a horrible bust. I recommend people remain on the ship when it docks at Mare. This island is very primitive with no adequate facilities and mangy dogs roaming the streets.

Outstanding experience

published

The cruise from Sydney to Cairns and back over 10 days in September 2019 was fabulous. The food was top notch and the quality of service by the staff on the cruise was really outstanding. Their staff are a great asset to them - everything was done so well - the cabins were immaculately cleaned each day, the entertainment was of high quality, the organisation and management very professional and streamlined, and the restaurant service impeccable. It was an experience I won't forget. Highly recommended to anyone who wants a real holiday!

Terrible vegetarian food, dingy and tired rooms

published

The food for vegetarian and vegan was terrible. Very disappointed even though we let them know 1 month ahead of time. The rooms were old and tired. The staff were nice and gaveexcellent service. Overall the experience was below average. If you are vegetarian or vegan do NOT board this ship.

Very happy with the cabin may book another cruise January or December

If you think this ship is acceptable your standards unbelievably low!

published

What a disgrace! Paid premium to travel during Christmas/New Year but what we received was below average service, food and accommodation. This dark, dingy and oppressive ship is a joke and was like staying at a 3 star resort. Food was terrible, no where to sit, sticky tables and old smelly carpet. Our cabin shower was full of mould and smelled like a urinal. We were absolutely appalled at how sub standard this ship was and being stuck on this floating crap heap for 10 nights has put us off cruising for life!

Carnival Legend is in need of refurbishment. Its style and fittings are getting very tired. BUT its major fault is its aggressive approach to extracting money from you once aboard. For example, our farewell dinner saw every restaurant table get a bottle of wine next to their carafe of tap water for the first time without comment. I made the foolish mistake, like many other tables, of thinking this was a nice gesture. WRONG. if you made the mistake of opening the bottle, $55 was added to your bill for wine. Guess I should be thankful I wasn't charged for the tap water. However, you are charged $4.50 for a bottle of water in your room. Bringing bottled water on-board is forbidden.

That cruise director is a shell of a man who will tear you to shreds if you stand out from the crowd in any way, shape or form. Avoid at all costs. Benjamin, don't come to Australia. You are not welcome and I will find you...
