Carnival Legend Overview

Carnival Legend cruise ship
For a legendary cruise experience, it's hard to go past a ship with the promise right there in its name. The Carnival Legend has recently become an Aussie legend, and toes the line well between North American exuberance and laid-back antipodean fun.

The ship joined fleetmate Carnival Spirit in 2014 to sail from Australia and underwent a $47 million makeover to present a fresh face to cruisers Down Under, complete with local touches. Her unique and fun venues have proved to be a hit in the market and many Australians have enjoyed a cruise with Carnival cruises.

Inside the Carnival Legend
The Carnival Legend's interiors are designed around the Carnival "Fun Ship" concept, and the ship certainly comes across as a place where you can expect to have a good time. The casual atmosphere means she fits right in down in the South Pacific.

The Legend has undergone a series of upgrades to bring it into the fold of Carnival’s Fun Ships 2.0. This means this vessel features a whole raft of exciting venues and entertainment options that Australian cruise fans learned to love aboard the Carnival Spirit.

Carnival Legend dining and drinking
The options are extensive when it comes to meal times on the Carnival Legend. From the multi-level main dining room to small eateries around the ship such as an appetizer bar, ice cream machines, a deli and a pub, all included in your cruise fare, there is something for every craving or food mood. Specialty options add some supplementary gourmet dining for a fee - and of course the complimentary 24-hour room service will fill in any gaps.

Those hoping to grab something tasty to eat without taking too much time can head to Guy’s Burger Joint or build a burrito at BlueIguana Cantina. For a refreshing beverage with a twist, the Alchemy Bar will whip up a cocktail that’s designed just for you, or if margaritas are more your style, you might want to wander down to the BlueIguana Tequila Bar.

What to do on the Carnival Legend: pools and more
The Lido deck is where you'll find the Carnival Legend's three pools. The kiddies also have their own wading pool, and the Carnival WaterWorks area includes the fantastic Australia-only Green Thunder waterslide for the thrillseekers.

The pools are a centrepoint of life onboard, but they aren't all the Carnival Legend has to offer activity-wise - far from it. With Camp Carnival, Circle C, O2 and Dr Seuss at Sea for the kids, the grown ups will be free to enjoy classes and demonstrations, competitions, bingo, mini golf, spa treatments and more. And that's just during the daytime! The Carnival Legend evening entertainment is legendary. Stage shows and productions, bars and nightclubs - dinner is just the beginning of your nighttime fun.

Carnival Legend itineraries and excursions
Summers Down Under are perfect for a tropical trip to the South Pacific islands, and that's how the Carnival Legend spends much of her time. Eight to twelve-night itineraries amongst the islands of Melanesia are her bread and butter, with the occasional jaunt to the beautiful wildernesses and interesting cities of Tasmania and New Zealand thrown into the mix.

Onshore, the fun continues with shore excursions to show Carnival passengers the best of every port. They take care of all the details so all you have to do is relax and enjoy the ride, just like you do onboard. Possibilities range from chilled-out sightseeing to action-packed adventure - ask your cruise consultant about what's available in each port.

Cabins on board the Carnival Legend

Relax at the end of a busy day in your Carnival Legend stateroom. The ship's 1,062 staterooms fit into four basic categories: Interior, Ocean View, Balcony and Suite, meaning there's a cabin to fit any budget and preference. All are well-appointed and tastefully furnished to provide a haven of privacy and serenity.

The Carnival Legend's layout is designed for sea views, with more than eighty percent of cabins offering one. It is also great for families with 53 sets of interconnecting staterooms. Regardless of category, your cabin aboard the Carnival Legend will include  plenty of closet and drawer space, a flat-screen TV, a fridge, a phone, a safe and of course, a bathroom!

The Carnival Legend's entertainment options are numerous. Here's a brief rundown!

Carnival Legend pools and fitness
On the Lido Deck, you have your choice of pool to sit beside or splash around in. The Avalon Pool and Camelot Pool are separated midships by the Avalon Bar: that's where you get your fruity cocktails. Aft is the Adults-only Serenity with a pool featuring wonderful ocean views, and on the Sun Deck is the Carnival WaterWorks with Green Thunder waterslide.

Fit cruisers will love the spectacular Fitness Centre, which is tiered like an amphitheatre to offer every exerciser ocean views as a reward for their hard work. The spa pool in the middle is great for unwinding after a workout, and if it doesn't quite do the job properly there is always Spa Carnival with massages, beauty treatments and more.

The Sports Deck is encircled by a jogging track, and for something a little more fun and less strenuous, the mini golf and sports court are also found there.

Carnival Legend activities
The Carnival crew organises activities to keep everyone busy during sea days. These are detailed in The Fun Times, the daily newsletter. You can expect anything from the usual (and beloved) trivia nights and bingo to deck games, karaoke, dance classes and a range of other options.

If you need a little time to yourself, the ship also offers some solitary pursuits such as the video arcade, a library full of good books, art exhibitions, shopping and the casino.

Carnival Legend evening entertainment
The range of places to drink and socialise in the evenings is part of what makes the Carnival Legend such a "Fun Ship". Favourites include:

  • Tunes in the Piano Bar
  • Martini tastings
  • Mixologist competitions
  • Comedy acts from the Punchliner Comedy Club
  • Medusa's Lair dance club
  • Live music in the Odyssey and Atlantis lounges
  • Productions and musicals in Follies, the two-level main show lounge

Carnival Legend for kids
The younger ones certainly aren't left out onboard the Carnival Legend. The Waterworks play area is a hit with children,and perfect for family fun and togetherness with more thrilling options for the teens and adults.

Camp Carnival is the kid's program and has a dedicated area on the Upper Deck. Catered to here are those from 2-11 years of age with a range of fun activities, and on the deck below is Circle C for youngsters from 12-14, offering more age-appropriate pastimes like video games, movies, sports and dance parties.

Teens aged 15-17 have a hangout space called O2 on the Sun Deck with a non-alcoholic drinks bar, arcade, dance floor and places to chill.

Child-minding is available on the Carnival Legend in the evenings through the Night Owl program, for kids aged 1-11 years. There is a small hourly charge for this, and it is not in-cabin but in the kids areas.

Seuss at Sea is new to Australia on the Carnival Legend, and offers all kinds of cool experiences for kids from meeting characters to interactive story times. "Hasbro, the Game Show" is also available on the ship and a fun family game show for everyone to participate in together.

Artists Lobby On Carnival Legend

Art Auctions

If a room full of overly serious old men paying top-dollar for priceless antique works of art is your imagination of an “art auction”, then think again! Unlike a stodgy auction house, your Carnival cruise features a series of auction events designed to turn fine art into fine fun. From the rapid-fire ‘Lightning’ action to the cheap thrills of the ‘under $500’ event, there are plenty of chances to try your hand at bringing home something great and have a blast doing it. Unlike land auctions, Carnival Cruises even hold fun interactive events like the “Guess the Price” competition. That said, the onboard auctions aren’t completely without fancy trimmings — after all, what’s an auction without free-flowing champagne?

Art Exhibitions

If you are interested in art and would like to add cultrual component to your cruise, you will always be satisfied on Carnival Legend with a series of events celebrating some exceptional works. Take part in the art-themed activities onboard or check out showcases from different artists. You can't get any closer to art like this.
