Carnival Legend

Legends are not born; they are made. Over time, Carnival Legend has earned its nameplate. Let’s uncover some of the intriguing features of Carnival Legend.

If you’re in search of new legends, head straight to the RedFrog Pub®. Here, you’ll find not just a mythical mascot but also delightful drinks, all served in a Caribbean atmosphere. Your epic journey down the Green Thunder waterslide will become a story you’ll recount for generations to come. Bonsai Sushi™ demonstrates that you don’t need to be a fisherman to relish the delicacies of the sea. And once you’ve witnessed — and savored — the magical cocktails at Alchemy Bar®, you might still find it hard to believe your eyes.

This ship, paying homage to some of the most enduring legends throughout history, maintains its classic Carnival Legend favorites. Take a refreshing dip in the Camelot and Avalon pools, try your luck at Club Merlin Casino, and savor delectable dishes at Truffles Restaurant. Dining options abound on Lido Deck, including handmade delights at Guy’s Burger Joint™ and the fresh taco and burrito goodness at BlueIguana Cantina™. Not to be forgotten is The Golden Fleece Steakhouse, where a magnificent multi-course meal awaits.

Music aficionados who appreciate classic tunes will find their sanctuary at Billie’s Piano Bar. Kids will joyfully recount their favorite vacation tales of mingling and making new friends at one of the three supervised youth areas. Adults can either lose themselves in a good book or in each other’s company at the legendary kid-free Serenity Adult-Only Retreat™ area. Afterward, they can dance the night away at Medusa’s Lair Dance Club. The activities on Carnival Legend are nothing short of legendary.
