In March, Cruise Sale Finder ran a "Tag A Legend" giveaway to find a legendary cruise lover we could send on a fabulous Carnival Legend cruise. Kelly McBeath won the prize for her Mum, a lady who does a lot for other people and was very much deserving of the getaway.
We caught up with Kelly to ask about their experience on the Carnival Legend, and here's what she had to say!
Carnival Legend cruise
I was lucky enough to win a cruise for my Mum. She does so much for everyone else and I'm so glad she got the time to rest and enjoy herself because she totally deserves it. I was even luckier to be able to go with my Mum and take another two people, so we took my sister and my aunty to make it a family affair.
We had the BEST time together, the ship was amazing! We took full advantage of the adults area and loved lazing in the sun in the comfy pods.We used the pools, spas, gym, sauna and walking tracks daily. The food was excellent and the staff were so friendly, they couldn't do enough for us!
To try and counteract some of the calories, my aunty and I did a 2.5 hour trek up to the top of Pic N'ga on the Isle of Pines. At the top, there was 360 degree views around the island - it was absolutely stunning. We then rewarded ourselves for our efforts with some spectacular snorkelling!
In Lifou, we had a great day spent checking out the old church and snorkelling again in the amazing waters of Jinek Bay, then going down to the waterhole. We braved it and jumped in, it is so refreshing and beautiful.
We joined the hop on hop off bus for the day in Noumea to check out the sights and also enjoyed a dessert lunch at Beach Rock Cafe. This was a great little cafe on the water, all done out in rock and roll theme and complete with cadillacs as dining tables. On the island of Mare we went exploring on foot and saw some beautiful scenery along the way.
The formal nights were always fun - getting dressed up is what us girls do best! The entertainment on board was excellent, with a good variety of shows to suit everyone's tastes. The dancers and singers on the entertainment crew were out of this world! They did not disappoint, night after night, and they clearly have a passion for the work they do.
Of course, we also gave the waterslides a go. How could we resist? We are all young at heart! I would highly recommend the Carnival Legend to any cruiser - we could not fault anything at all.
A massive "thank you" to Cruise Sale Finder for giving us such a magical opportunity and memories we will have for a lifetime!
