Carnival Legend Overview
Carnival Legend debuted in 2002 as one of Carnival’s Spirit-class cruise ships and holds just over 2,100 passengers. The ship's most recent dry dock was in 2018. She received extensive upgrades and renovations, most notably many of Carnival’s Fun Ship 2.0 venues. Additions included the Cherry on Top candy shop and ice cream counter, Guy’s Burger Joint, BlueIguana Cantina, and the craft cocktail Alchemy Bar.
Other features and amenities include the WaterWorks aqua park with water slides, Lip Sync Battle: Carnival, and The Punchliner Comedy Club. The Camp Ocean kids’ club offers great activities for ages 2-11 along with the favorite Seuss at Sea programming. Teens can head over to Club O2 for some video games, karaoke, movies, and music.
Carnival Legend isn’t just for the kids, though. The Serenity adults-only deck offers a place to peacefully catch some rays, have a drink, and escape the crowds. Parents don’t have to worry about missing the lively nightlife available on the Legend. Parents can take advantage of Night Owls where kids under that ages 11 and under can play with others until 1 a.m.
Eighty percent of Carnival Legend cabins have an ocean view, and of those, eighty percent are balcony staterooms.
Legend currently homeports seasonally in Australia and Alaska. In October 2019, the ship will relocate to Tampa, Florida to sail cruises in the western Caribbean. It offers a diverse set of itineraries to Alaska, Hawaii, the Caribbean, and the Panama Canal.
Before You Book
Why Sail: This ship is a great fit for families, laid back couples, and budget-conscious travelers. It's a smaller ship in comparison with many of today’s new vessels. This means it’s perfect for passengers who don’t want to deal with navigating a mega-ship or avoiding large crowds.
You Should Know: There isn't the modern feel and cutting-edge amenities of the newer ships in Carnival’s fleet. Some people might find the interior design to be too overwhelming and ostentatious.
