Ship: Carnival Legend | Sail Date: 11/01/2009 | Destination: > Western Caribbean
I just wanted to let you know that despite the bad weather, my family had a great time on our cruise. We only had two sunny days then tropical rains which upgraded to hurricane Ida. I believe it was the staff on board the ship that made the difference. We have never cruised before and didn't know what to expect. When shore excursion were cancelled due to thunder and lightening or the torrenial rains our money was put right back on our accounts no waiting in line or questions asked. That gave us more time to enjoy the ship and all it had to offer. We are sun bathers and would like to have come back with tans but we came back wanting to go on another cruise. If may sound funny to you but one of the highlights of the cruise was our dining experience. Each night we looked forward to dinner and your diningroom staff. The dancing and singing was great as well as the food. Well we will be booking another cruise and even with the boat rocking and a few got sick the staff was very helpful in suggesting ways to alieve the sickness which worked!! We were two hours late getting to Tampa and the dismbarkment went well. We made our flights on time. We are not US citizens so we had to go through customs and even that was very well organized. I have already told everyone I know that Carnival is a good place to go cruising with. This could have been a bad experience but you (mostly the staff on borad that ship) made it a great time and again as I said made us want to cruise again-- even in bad weather!!
