Carnival Legend To Sail Special Sailings Before Australian Deployment

Prior to the Carnival Legend’s deployment to Australia, the ship will sail two unique itineraries through the Panama Canal and across the Pacific Ocean.

The 13 day Panama Canal sailing will embark in Tampa, Florida on August 17, 2014 and disembark in Long Beach, California on August 30, 2014. During the voyage, the Carnival Legend will call in George Town, Grand Cayman; and Cartagena, Colombia; prior to the Panama Canal transit followed by day-long calls to Puntarenas, Costa Rica; and Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.

The Carnival Legend’s 23 day transPacific sailing will depart Long Beach, California on August 30, 2014 and will disembark in her new homeport, Sydney, Australia, on September 22, 2014. Ports of call for the transPacific sailing will include Puerto Vallarta, Mexico; Papeete (Tahiti), Bora Bora and Moorea, French Polynesia; Suva, Fiji Islands; and Noumea, New Caledonia. The ship will also cross the International Dateline and will celebrate the crossing with traditional maritime celebrations.

Prior to embarking on this combinable, 36 day sailing, the Carnival Legend will undergo a major transformation. The transformation will include the addition of some of Carnival’s Fun Ship 2.0 program. New amenities will include a remodeled WaterWorks area with the steepest water slide at sea, Green Thunder. Red Frog Pub, Bonsai Sushi, and Cherry on Top will also be added to the Carnival Legend.

The transPacific crossing will position Carnival Legend for a seasonal program from Australia that kicks off Sept. 24, 2014, and encompasses eight to 12-day cruises from Sydney calling at a variety of destinations within the Pacific, including New Caledonia, Vanuatu and Fiji.
