Travel Post: Food and Drinks on Carnival Legend

This post includes every single dish that we ate in the Truffles dining room as well as Bonsai Sushi. We decided to not review the buffet as it was mostly similar food, just served in larger portions. We were always serviced by an experienced waiter each night and served a three course meal. This of course can be extended to four or even five if you ask nicely. The dishes were always prepared and presented with elegance and unfortunately we don't have the mental capacity to review each dish, as there were many. We decided to choose the anytime dining option while aboard the ship. This meant that we could dine at any time throughout the dining hours so long as we were happy to wait for a seat. At any time the longest we waited was no more than 20 minutes. This option is particularly popular as you are not bound by any time restrictions, giving you freedom to explore the ship or the islands without regret. 

Pizza Pirate
If you do miss dinner service, there is always the 24hr Pizza Pirate which we HIGHLY recommend. We were visiting for midnight snacks! Word of warning, you will eat. You will eat lots and regret it but hey (can't believe I'm saying this)... YOLO!

Drinks
Tiramisu Martin
This was extremely strong for my liking, I had two sips and had to push it away.
Kiss on the Lips
I think we had 10 of these which explains the bill at the end. We won't spoil it for you but if you are traveling on the Legend, give it a try.

Mango Daiquiri 
Almost on par with Kiss on the Lips. This is a must order as well to be enjoyed anywhere and at any time. 

Strawberry Daiquiri
Okay, I'm just going to tell you. The Kiss on the Lips is a combination of strawberry and mango daiquiri (our favourite drinks on the cruise).

Do not order the above purple cocktail. We don't remember what the name of this was but it doesn't matter. It was disgusting...

Bonsai Sushi demonstration and free tasting
Look out for the Bonsai Sushi demonstration in the Fun Time brochure. This is a first in, first serve type of demonstration. It's an intimate class and every time the chef finishes a dish, samples would come out for the audience to enjoy. We highly recommend you have dinner at least once at Bonsai Sushi and if you're short on time for whatever reason, they do room service.

Truffles Restaurant
We've split this post into breakfast, entree, mains and dessert. Instead of writing about our experience/taste, we thought it would be nice to have a picture reference for the next time you order a dish on the Carnival Legend. There's nothing better than knowing what you're ordering! 
We will have the name of the dish followed by our rating, the scale can be found below:
