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.

Unfriendly, unhelpful guest service

published

Being a frequent cruise person and second time on this cruise I found the cruise itself mostly ok. Two incidences at the guest service desk gave me a bit of sour taste.
The whole room steamed up when having a shower. Thin material clothings did not dry for two three days. I enquired about the exhaust system in my room and I was told the water was too hot. Nothing was done about it.

I lost my baseball cap somewhere on the boat. I went to see if someone picked it up and handed it in. I described the cap. The response was “ so did you lose the cap” with no interest in helping.

Family of 4 adults - Enjoyed in every way

published

I took my retired parents and my husband on a cruise from Melbourne to Sydney via Hobart. 5 days. This was our first cruise. My dad can't stop talking about how good and relaxing it was. They was at a junior suite. They got to relax a lot.
For us, we're pleasantly surprised at the service. Super friendly staff. For me it was great in every way.

Great staff and great cruise

published

We went on a 10 night New Year's Eve cruise. This was our first time with Carnival.
The crew were amazing and so friendly. So many activities to join in. We had such an awesome time.
Can't wait to go again

Poor

published

The most unorganised cruise I've ever been on by the security are heavy handed and staff.
Don't have any time for young children. The good was overpriced and greasy.
I don't like conflict and normally avoid direct complaints but these people were
Quite rude and racist. Please avoid or do further research, as basic questions to staff members
Are met with eye rolls and sarcastic negative answers customer service non existent here.

About $A 8 for a beer or simple cocktail, From $A30 for a bottle of wine with dinner. $A14 more fancy cocktails pushed by travelling waiters while you relax in your deck chair.

Wasn't drinking but noticed the cocktails were very popular and also large. They were offering $13 cocktails on arrival, so this might be the way to go. Same drink in a bar in Melbourne would be min $20.00

I think spirits straight were about $9.
