Happy Customers

Because we travel to Australia every year taking a cruise breaks the journey rather than flying for 24 hours. Although communicating through e-mails slows the booking process down it is really the only way to communicate because of the time difference, but we manage it and I will not hesitate to use your agency again. We like Princess Cruises and will probably book for next Christmas, but not on Sun Princess."

Carnival Legend Overview

Carnival Legend is based in Sydney from October through to April each year, and most of her cruises visit Pacific islands over 7 to 12 nights (including 4 to 6 sea days). Island groups visited are New Caledonia, Vanuatu and Fiji. In April and September each year take a trans-Pacific cruise bridging Sydney and Hawaii via French Polynesia. Other possibilities are to sail from Sydney to the Queensland coast, or to New Zealand’s north island around the Christmas/New Year period. From time to time there are short ‘taster’ cruises, or 5 nights to Tasmania. In 2018 Carnival Legend will homeport in Melbourne for a few months. Carnival Legend is prepared for the Australian market – power points, menus, entertainment, and facilities, informed by what works for Carnival Spirit. There’s the entertainment show Hasbro. Other popular new features include the Red Frog Pub, Bonsai Sushi, candy store Cherry On Top and the Dr Seuss at Sea kids program. Because of her higher speed, Legend can spend more time visiting ports during her cruises.


The 20 cabin categories include interior staterooms, ocean view rooms, ocean rooms with French doors (but no balcony), ocean rooms with private balcony, and four grades of suites. Eighty percent of the cabins are outside; 80 percent of those staterooms have private balconies. Each cabin has a gift amenity basket in its bathroom. All staterooms include flat-screen TVs, safe, AC, mini-bar fridge, beach towels, hair dryer, bathrobes to wear during your cruise, and Carnival Comfort Bed with plush mattresses, good quality duvets, linens and pillows. Standard cabins are a good size. Most with twin beds can be converted to king-size bed. Good design and soft lighting add to a feeling of spaciousness in interior staterooms.

Food and Dining

The ship has a single two-deck Truffles Restaurant with a choice of fixed-time dining at two seatings, or flexible “Your Time Dining”. Dining assignments can be booked before the cruise. Allow for one or two nights “Dress Elegant”. Menus change daily and service is excellent. Breakfast and lunch are open seating. The International Food Plaza on the lido deck is an extensive casual eatery, with sections that include small buffet counters, salad counters, a dessert counter, a 24-hour pizzeria, ice cream/frozen yoghurt station, and deli.


There is something for everyone. New to the Australian market will be Playlist Productions, with special effects in theatres and bars ship-wide. Follies is the main show lounge spanning three decks presents large production shows and cabaret acts backed by a live show band. There’s an alternative show lounge, Firebird Lounge, on the lowest deck. Night is the time for late buffet snacks, R-rated comedy, and Medusa’s Lair for dancing.
