All about the Carnival Legend

The Carnival Legend was built in 2002. It's considered a small size ship. Coming in at 963 ft long and 106 ft wide, it's roughly the length of 2.7 football fields, as wide as 2 tractor trailers and the same height as a 12 story building.

The Carnival Legend can hold 2,124 based on double occupancy (two people per room) and more when you take into account 3rd and 4th passengers. When you compare the total tonnage of the ship to the number of passengers, the Legend has a space ratio of 42. Depending on the ship, this number can range from 30 to 52 (with a bigger number meaning more space per person) so this ship's space to person ratio is about average.

Pools and Hot Tubs

Nothing beats relaxing by a pool with a nice drink in hand as you feel the fresh sea breeze pass by you. The problem is that with thousands of people on a ship, there's not always room. We're a firm believer that if you want to just spend all day for 7 days in a pool, a cruise isn't for you. You would have a much better bet choosing a resort with a huge pool complex. That being said, a quick dip in the pool can be nice on a hot day. The Carnival Legend has a total of 3 pools and 3 hot tubs.

Tired of loud kids and splashing? 1 of the pools and 1 of the hot tubs are adults only.
