Carnival Legend Ship Overview

Posted on: January 17th, 2013 - Ship Overviews


Carnival Cruise Lines’ 88,500-ton Carnival Legend will offer a winter schedule of seven-day Caribbean cruises from Tampa before repositioning to Europe to operate a summer schedule of 12-day European voyages, including Carnival’s first-ever cruises to the Norwegian fjords.  The ship provides a truly unique vacation experience, with a host of “resort-style” amenities and an exciting array of stunning public rooms and facilities, each with a character all its own.

In addition to a diversity of “themed” lounges, bars, and nightspots, the “Fun Ship” Carnival Legend offers myriad full-service and casual dining choices, an on-board health and fitness facility, supervised kids and teen programs, and a golf program offering golf excursions and personalized lessons.

Carnival Legend features dramatic public rooms and areas that celebrate legendary figures and locations, both historical and mythical. Highlights include the ship’s Colossus Atrium patterned after ancient Greece and the legendary, classical city of Rhodes; Medusa’s Lair dance club offering a playful twist on the mythological legend of the mysterious gorgon Medusa, with giant Medusa heads with snakelike hair ending in snakes’ head with lighted eyes; and Follies, the main show lounge that recalls the magnificent movie houses of the 1920s.

Carnival Legend houses the two-level Truffles main dining room and the poolside Unicorn Café, a casual eatery serving full breakfast, lunch and dinner alternatives and a 24-hour pizzeria.  Dining room menus also include vegetarian dishes and children’s menus, as well as Spa Carnival Fare, delicious health-conscious menu items that are lower in fat, sodium, cholesterol and calories. The ship also features a patisserie and sushi bar, as well as complimentary 24-hour room service and ice cream and frozen yogurt.

CAMP CARNIVAL,’ ‘CIRCLE C,’ ‘CLUB O2’ – Building upon Carnival’s distinction as the family cruise leader carrying 725,000 children annually fleetwide, Carnival Legend offers organized programs for three different age groups – Camp Carnival for 2- to 11-year-olds, Circle “C” for 12- to 14-year-olds, and Club O2 for 15- to 17-year-olds – with supervised activities and expansive, modern facilities.  Carnival Legend also houses four swimming pools, including a children’s wading pool and an aft pool with a twisting, turning Twister water slide.

‘HEALTH AND FITNESS FACILITY’ – Fitness has become an important part of everyday life and guests sailing on the Carnival Legend can take advantage of the ship’s 14,500-square-foot “Spa Carnival” facility, which features exercise equipment, a gymnasium, and body and facial treatments, including a number of exotic “European-style” therapies. The ship also features a salon offering a variety of hair, nail and make-up services.

SPACIOUS ACCOMMODATIONS-  Eighty percent of the Carnival Legend’s 1,062 staterooms offer either an ocean view or balcony – perfect for scenic Caribbean and European cruising. As part of Carnival’s fleetwide stateroom enhancements, all of the Carnival Legend’s staterooms feature the Carnival Comfort Bed sleep system, featuring plush mattresses, luxurious duvets, fluffy pillows and high quality sheets and linens. All accommodations include terrycloth bathrobes as well as in-cabin amenity kits with a variety of brand-name product samples for men and women.

INTERNET CAFÉ, WI-FI ACCESS, CELL PHONE SERVICE – Like all “Fun Ships,” Carnival Legend offers an Internet café with private workstations featuring flat-screen monitors, along with Wi-Fi access available in virtually all public rooms and areas.  Guests can also make and receive cell phone calls whether the ship is at sea or in port.
