Carnival Legend is well deserving of its name, at 88,500 tonnes and with the capacity to accommodate 2100 passengers and 1000 crew Legend is a Spirit class ship, with 80% of the staterooms offering ocean views, and 80% of those enjoying private balconies.
As you might expect with a name like Legend, a mythical theme runs throughout the ship. The pools are Camelot and Avalon, the Casino is Club Merlin, there is the Unicorn café on the Lido deck and The Golden Fleece Steakhouse are just a few examples.
Carnival claim “Legends are made, not born” and they have designed a ship that will be memorable and impressive.
There is fantastic choice of cuisine on board Carnival Legend. Casual dining out on deck with sunshine and sea views is always a favourite for a relaxed lunch.
In the evening there are more lavish treats for diners in the main dining rooms with gourmet three course meals on the menu.
For adults looking for a special experience there is the Chef’s Table for a VIP meal with champagne, hors d’oeuvres, appetizers, entrees and irresistible desserts, concluded with an exclusive tour of the galley.
All Carnival ships place high importance on providing excellent entertainment and Legend is no exception.
There are live shows, bars and live music. For sports fans there are excellent facilities for energetic games and for those who enjoy a good laugh, the comedy is first rate.
Pop the kids into the kids’ club where they will make new friends and be entertained. There is even a Night Owl group babysitting service to give you some free time at the Merlin Casino or the Piano bar.
The Legendary adult-only Serenity retreat is blissfully relaxing, as is the spa and beauty facility that will have you looking and feeling brand new.
The fitness centre is modern, spacious and has a great range of work-out equipment, or you may choose to join a yoga or pilates class with fully qualified instructors to encourage you.
Out on deck you can jog around the ship’s running track, play a game of five-a-side football or play a quick game of ping-pong with your kids.
As with all Carnival ships the water slides are built to challenge and thrill.
Be brave and take a ride down the Green Thunder Water slide, or, if you love the water but not at that speed, you can laze in a bubbling Jacuzzi and watch the world go by. There are plenty of pools to choose from and sun loungers that invite you to relax and soak up the sunshine and atmosphere of this Legendary American fun ship.
