Carnival Legend was in May undergoing an extensive two-week-long dry dock in Portland, Oregon, adding a variety of popular food and beverage concepts and enhancing other facilities.
Following the dry dock, Carnival Legend will operate a summer schedule of seven-day Alaska cruises from Seattle, then reposition to Australia with a series of departures from Sydney and Melbourne in autumn and winter.
“At Carnival, we encourage our guests to Choose Fun and with these voyages aboard the newly refurbished Carnival Legend we’re providing our guests with a broad spectrum of exciting cruise options featuring sought-after destinations and unique experiences ashore,” commented, Christine Duffy, president, Carnival Cruise Line.
In summer 2019 Carnival Legend will return to Seattle for another series of seven-day Alaska cruises before moving to Tampa in autumn 2019.
Prior to her Tampa deployment, the cruise ship will also operate a series of longer-length Carnival Journeys voyages in 2019, including a nine-day Alaska cruise from Vancouver, Canada a 16-day Hawaii voyage from Vancouver and 15-day Panama Canal transit that begins in Los Angeles and ends in Tampa.
