Carnival Legend is the third ship in the Spirit class, which introduced some significant firsts for Carnival: alternative restaurants and onboard wedding chapels. Spirit-class ships also offer an impressive 80 percent ratio of outside cabins, as well as lots of nice little touches -- like museum-quality artwork and "designer" martinis.
The central theme onboard Carnival Legend is, aptly, great legends of the world. The theme is carried out throughout Carnival Legend's 12 passenger decks, 16 lounges, and indoor and outdoor promenades. The "Fun Ship" has it all including a nine-deck-high atrium, an onboard golf program, a duty-free shopping mall, a video arcade and an 1,800-square-ft. children's play area.
At 88,500 tons and carrying 2,124 passengers, Carnival Legend is just skirting the high side of mid-sized -- large enough, but not particularly crowded; we found it quite easy to find our way soon after boarding.
Carnival Legend Fellow Passengers
A broad crisscross of (mostly) middle America; according to Carnival, 30 percent of its passengers are under the age of 35, 40 percent are between 35 and 55, and 30 percent are over 55.
Carnival Legend Dress Code
A one week cruise features two formal evenings. Most men opt for jackets and ties, but a large number wear tuxedos. Resort casual attire is suggested for the rest of the evenings.
Carnival Legend Gratuity
Carnival recommends $12.00 per person, per day. The guidelines allocate $6.10 to dining room services, $3.90 to cabin services and $2 per day for alternative services, which include kitchen, entertainment, guest services and other hotel staff members. The amount is automatically added to your shipboard account, but it can be adjusted in either direction at the guest services desk. A 15 percent gratuity is automatically added to bar bills. Tipping a couple dollars for room service at delivery is expected (and appreciated) by the service staff.
