Legend Gets New Homeport
Home port shifting is top-of-the-news today as two cruise lines announce they are moving ships in S. Florida. First up, Carnival Legend, originally slated to operate out of Miami, will instead be based at Fort Lauderdale’s Port Everglades. Reason? The ship, like Miami-based sibling Carnival Spirit, will offer eight day exotic Caribbean itineraries and it was thought that the two should be separated. Carnival Legend is that mega-line’s newest ship and will, uniquely for Carnival, make its debut in late summer/early fall with a European sailing before crossing the Atlantic. The 85,000-ton ship, third of Carnival’s Spirit-class, is currently in final outfitting stages at Kvaerner Masa-Yards in Helsinki.

The somewhat smaller -- okay we’re teasing -- the much smaller Sea Dream Yacht Club line is also transferring ships out of Miami. The 4,620-ton 110-passenger Sea Dream I and II (the old Sea Goddess ships), which will winter in the Caribbean, will now call The Port of Palm Beach home next winter.
