The Ultimate Guide to Carnival Legend®

The cruise ship Carnival Legend® might take its inspiration from the world’s most famous legends – tales of Camelot and Merlin, Medusa and unicorns – but a cruise vacation on this incredible floating resort is no myth!

A cruise to Hawaii, Alaska, Europe or the Caribbean is packed with unforgettable days exploring ports across the globe, but your time on board promises to be just as memorable. From splashing in the pool and lounging in the sun to pampering at the spa and enjoying amazing evening entertainment, there’s so much to do on Carnival Legend®, day and night.

And all that fun is bound to give you a big appetite, so don’t forget to discover all the delicious cruise dining options as well. When all these elements of a vacation come together, it will be nothing short of legendary.

Outdoor Fun

Carnival Legend’s® spacious, sun-drenched outdoor decks are always buzzing with action, and nobody can resist joining in the fun. The endless ocean views aren’t too bad, either. Adults and kids of all ages love to twist, soar, splash and swim at WaterWorks, the onboard water park, and enjoy a little friendly putting competition on the Mini Golf course.

Romantic couples and groups of grown-up friends cruising together all love to spend some quiet time at the Serenity Adult Only Retreat. Parents taking a family cruise might send the little ones off for their own, supervised fun and spend an hour or two at the retreat as well. It’s the perfect place for peace and quiet, perhaps with a cool drink and a good book, along with great company.

Indoor Fun

The fun doesn’t stop when the sun goes down, or even when you’re ready for some time in the shade. Head indoors and discover all the entertainment options on Carnival Legend®.

Take a seat and take in a show – there’s The Punchliner Comedy Club where professional comedians present both family-friendly and adult-only shows, and the spectacular razzle-dazzle song and dance shows by Playlist Productions.

Maybe you and your family want to get in on the action on stage. On Carnival Legend® you can do just that at Lip Sync Battle: Carnival, where willing guests channel their inner pop or rock star.

Sometimes all those long days of fun on board and in port leave you in need of some pampering, and Spa Carnival® is the perfect place to get some. Hot stone massages, facials, aromatherapy treatments and more are available inside the serene space. Another Carnival Legend venue for indoor fun is the Casino, where it just might be your lucky day.

Delicious Dining

Carnival Legend passengers are all hungry for adventure while cruising around the world, but over a dozen amazing cruise dining options are there to satisfy any culinary craving.

There’s Bonsai Sushi for your favorite sashimi, rolls and bento box lunches, and classic American fare at Guy’s Burger Joint, where a menu designed by celebrity chef Guy Fieri features grilled burgers loaded with custom toppings and served with hand-cut fries.

Your favorite Mexican fare is made to order at BlueIguana Cantina, which has a fresh salsa bar so you can load up your tacos and burritos with arrays of condiments. For a special-occasion-worthy dinner (even if you’re just celebrating a wonderful vacation), reserve a table at The Golden Fleece Steakhouse.

Premium steaks are the stars of the menu, but the restaurant also boasts gourmet seafood selections and other entrees, tempting appetizers, delicious desserts and a lengthy wine list.

Great Bars

You might be sailing across the ocean, but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy a great night “on the town” on board Carnival Legend. The cruise ship offers over half a dozen great bars, each with its own unique atmosphere. RedFrog Pub takes its inspiration from the Caribbean, with a long drinks menu of tropical cocktails and craft beers.

Its sister spot, RedFrog Rum Bar, brings the island vibe to the poolside, along with its rum-centered cocktails and other boozy offerings. Hop (bar hop, that is) from the Caribbean to Mexico and take a seat at BlueIguana Tequila Bar, where margaritas and cervezas in every incarnation have you livin’ la vida loca.

With a different atmosphere all together, the sleek Piano Bar revolves around a live piano player, with guests encouraged to sing along to all their favorite tunes. Creative cocktails are the specialty of the vintage-themed Alchemy Bar, among them age-old recipes and brand-new custom concoctions dreamed up by your friendly bartender.

No roster of great bars is complete without a Sports Bar, so of course there’s a cool spot to drink and watch sports across countless big screens on Carnival Legend.
