A team of more than 2,000 workers completed extensive renovations to the ship in Freeport, Bahamas during February.
Joining sister ship, Carnival Spirit in Australia on 22 September 2014, Carnival Legend will have many of the same Aussie favourites that have made a name for the cruise line in Australia, as well as boasting a number of features and facilities never-before-seen Down Under.
Upgrades include Red Frog Pub, a Caribbean-themed watering hole where guests can relax with the Pacific’s best beers and rums, play a spirited game of foosball and enjoy live music while soaking up the tropical ambiance.
The brand new Bonsai Sushi offers delicious, Asian-inspired delicacies - sushi, sashimi, rolls and more, along with popular beers and cocktails from the region - all enjoyed amidst contemporary, stylish décor.
Kids (and big kids alike) will love Cherry On Top, a “candy and more store” with giant pick-and-mix lolly bins, fun gifts and novelties, custom apparel and more.
In addition, Carnival Legend will take on-board entertainment to a whole new level as we debut Playlist Productions in Australia. Playlist Productions is range of new shows, combining short, punchy live performances with special effects and will offer an entirely new experience for guests.
A huge hit for Carnival Cruise Lines in the US, Hasbro, The Game Show will launch in Australia on Carnival Legend. In this completely new concept for the Aussie market, guests will be fully immersed in life-size versions of their favourite childhood games, including CONNECT 4 andOPERATION, with the chance to win prizes.
Carnival Cruise Lines Vice President Australia and New Zealand, Jennifer Vandekreeke, comments:
“Carnival Spirit has been so warmly received by Australians these past 18 months, so we are excited to be welcoming sister ship Carnival Legend as a new holiday option for Australia. We’ve listened to what Australians love most about Carnival Spirit, and took into account the latest trends in hospitality on shore here in Australia and in the US to design the best upgrades for Carnival Legend.
“The result is a ship filled with delicious dining destinations, thrilling waterslides, vast spaces to chill out with a cocktail in hand, and a myriad of entertainment options. It’s a new and different experience in Australian
