The Carnival Legend cruises to the South Pacific during our summer, taking you away to the idyllic tropical islands of New Caledonia and Vanuatu from both Sydney and Melbourne. In addition, if you are new to cruising or looking for that special weekend celebratory cruise, Carnival Legend offers a range of short Sea Breaks of three and four nights, predominantly from Melbourne.
In April each year the Carnival Legend cruises from Sydney to Hawaii en route to spend her Northern Hemisphere summer season offering Carnival cruises in Alaska before returning via Hawaii to Sydney in September to spend our warmer months cruising back in Australian waters. These ‘repositioning cruises‘ are very popular and sell out early so don’t delay in securing your cabin. Carnival Legend also offers cruises between Honolulu and Vancouver when transitioning between the two hemispheres.

Legends are made, not born, and Carnival Legend is now even more deserving of its nameplate. This ship packs some of the newest, greatest features you’ll find across the fleet.
If you’re looking to discover new legends, flip directly to the RedFrog Pub, featuring not only a mythical mascot, but actual drinks – plus Caribbean atmosphere by the gallon. Your heroic journey down the Green Thunder waterslide is a saga you’ll recount for ages. And Bonsai Sushi proves that you needn’t teach a man to fish for him to enjoy delicacies from the sea.
This ship, which pays tribute to some of the most enduring legends throughout the ages, still features classic Carnival Legend favourites. Take a dip in the Camelot and Avalon pools, wish for fortune at Club Merlin Casino, and taste something savory at Truffles Restaurant.

Kids will tell and retell their tale of their favourite holiday, spent hanging out and meeting new friends at one of three supervised youth areas.

The Carnival Cruise Empire dining room offers an elegant and relaxing setting in which to enjoy a full three course menu! It’s an experience that’s filling, but never stuffy – you’re just as likely to catch waiters table-dancing as you are to order dessert. Dessert’s included – along with the rest of your meal, by the way – in your fare. But don’t skip straight to dessert, because the main course is the main attraction; drop in daily and enjoy a rotating menu of delectable favourites, including steak, seafood and prime rib.
Our kids’ menus, available at most onboard dining venues, feature foods that are delicious enough – and fun enough – to satisfy even the pickiest of eaters. We’ve got all the familiar options they love at home, like spaghetti and meatballs, chicken nuggets, hot dogs, mac-n-cheese, peanut butter and jam sandwiches and – yes mum – fresh fruit and veggies. They should save room for dessert, though, because with sweet stuff like banana splits and chocolate brownies, your young’uns are going to be pretty excited. There’s even 24-hour pizza and ice cream…but these are subject to bed-time, of course.
Got room for dessert? Sure you do! Swirls ice cream lets you enjoy the sweeter side of brain freeze with a treat that’ll have you smiling from ear to ear. Choose from chocolate, vanilla or strawberry… or make your own mix swirled as high as you can balance it. Open on Lido deck 24/7.
