12 Night Cruise sailing from Barcelona roundtrip aboard Carnival Legend.
Legends are made, not born... and over time, this ship has become even more deserving of its nameplate. Let’s discover some of the secrets of Carnival Legend.
If you’re out to find new legends, flip directly to the RedFrog Pub, featuring not only a mythical mascot, but actual drinks — plus Caribbean atmosphere by the gallon. Your heroic journey down the Green Thunder waterslide is a saga you’ll recount for ages. Bonsai Sushi proves that you needn’t teach a man to fish for him to enjoy delicacies from the sea. And once you’ve had a look — not to mention a taste — at the certifiable cocktail magic of Alchemy Bar, you still may not believe your eyes.
This ship, which pays tribute to some of the most enduring legends throughout the ages, still features classic Carnival Legend favorites. Take a dip in the Camelot and Avalon pools, wish for fortune at Club Merlin Casino, and taste something savory at Truffles Restaurant. There’s more than one way to dine at Lido Deck’s Unicorn Café, including handmade faves at Guy’s Burger Joint and fresh taco-burrito goodness at BlueIguana Cantina. And of course there’s The Golden Fleece Steakhouse, where the great multi-course meal is no myth.
Music lovers who go for the classics will love Billie’s Piano Bar. Anyone with a move in their groove will find Lip Sync Battle: Carnival the place to let it out. Kids will tell and retell their tale of their favorite vacation, spent hanging out and meeting new friends at one of three supervised youth areas. And adults can get lost in a good book, or just one another’s company, at the legendarily kid-free Serenity Adult-Only Area... and then dance the night away at Medusa’s Lair Dance Club. Activities on Carnival Legend? Nothing short of legendary.
For a cruise vacation that’s sure to go down in your history books, turn to Carnival Legend.
Highlights of this cruise:
LIVORNO (FLORENCE & PISA), ITALY
Livorno is the coastal gateway to beautiful Tuscany, where you’ll find both fan-favorite Pisa and Florence, the cradle of the Renaissance. Florence houses some of the world's greatest works of art, from masters like Leonardo da Vinci and Boticelli, plus Michelangelo's David and the Duomo, whose terrace offers breathtaking views of the city’s red-tiled roofs and narrow medieval lanes. Then there’s Pisa, Florence’s rival for political power and a brash, commercial seafaring town that once rivaled the great maritime powers Venice and Genoa. Of course you’ll visit the Leaning Tower, but don’t stop there. Palazzo Agostini houses 12th century remains of Pisa’s city walls, and Piazza dei Cavalieri was consistently the center of Pisan history.
ROME (CIVITAVECCHIA), ITALY
In ancient times it was said that all roads lead to Rome… but in your case, the seaport of Civitavecchia is your road to Rome. Get there and you’ll find out what made the place so popular. The Vatican's Sistine Chapel by Michelangelo, the Colosseum with its lurid history, and the Trevi Fountain — where a tossed coin promises your return — are not to be missed on any visit to the so-called “Eternal City,” one of the cradles of civilization. Take a walking tour of Rome’s many historical landmarks and enjoy the lively sidewalk cafés, ending the day alla romana strolling through the atmospheric Centro Storico.
NAPLES (CAPRI & POMPEII), ITALY
Not just one of Italy’s oldest cities, but among the world’s oldest, Naples and its surrounding area has over thousands of years contributed innovations to not only the culinary and visual arts, but the development of everything from language to music. Today, you'll feel the friendly spirit of this sunny metropolis as you sample its historic sights, fabulous shopping galleria and irresistible cuisine. But don’t limit yourself to the city itself — Mount Vesuvius, the spectacular Amalfi Coast, and the romantic isle of Capri's famous Blue Grotto are all just a short distance away. The well-known, buried city of Pompeii is an archeological wonder, and not far from Naples.
Dubrovnik is a beautiful stone jewel, a feather in the cap of the Adriatic Sea. This picture-perfect medieval walled city boasts ancient stone buildings, narrow cobbled streets and fortified ramparts rising above red-tiled rooftops. As a Middle Ages trading center, Dubrovnik was once actually a seaport rival to Venice. Today, the city’s amazing history is reflected in its many monuments and museums. Explore the man-made treasures like Old Town and the city’s famous wall, but don't miss the natural pleasures like Dubrovnik’s nearby beaches. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Old Town remains the world-renown pride of the Republic of Croatia.
Have you cruised a fjord lately? Well, fjord lovers take note: Kotor rests at the edge of the largest in the south of Europe. This body of water is a thing of beauty, but there’s more to Kotor — the city also sits at the base of an amazing mountain that makes for some dramatic overhead views. 360 degrees of beauty! How welcoming to visitors can a place be when it’s ringed by sturdy Venetian fortress walls… ones built all the way up the mountain to keep invaders out, no less? You’d be surprised! The old-town walled section of Kotor today throws its doors open to visitors from around the world who come to seek signs of its history among the local palaces, cathedrals and museums.
The lush and verdant island of Corfu is midway between Greece and Italy, and there lies a long and colorful history. First colonized by settlers from the city-state of Corinth, Corfu has been ruled by the Romans, the Venetians, the French and the English. Whew! Corfu today boasts fortresses bearing the insignia of the Venetian Republic, a lavish esplanade planted by the French during the Napoleonic Wars, and even an English cricket pitch. The island also offers some of the finest coastal scenery in the entire Mediterranean.
MESSINA (SICILY), ITALY
Founded as a Greek colony in the 8th century B.C., Messina became a major port and commercial center during the Roman Empire. Then during the Middle Ages it was the major port of departure for Crusaders. Today, this charming city entices tourists with its historical settings, including a museum with works by Caravaggio, mountainous scenery made famous in The Godfather, plus the active Stromboli volcano and the town’s cathedral, whose bell tower serves up an animated retelling of the town’s history every day at noon. Don’t miss the hill-top town of Taormina, where visitors experience amazing views of the snowcapped Mount Etna.
MARSEILLE (PROVENCE), FRANCE
Marseille is France’s second largest city, its largest port on the Mediterranean and — thanks in large part to Algerian immigration in the 1950s — a melting pot of people and cultures. Marseille’s also a place of striking contrasts: at the picturesque Vieux Port, not far from the iconic fishing boats are sleek pleasure craft. Dominating the harbor is the infamous Chateau d’If, the rocky prison from which Dumas’ Count of Monte Cristo escaped. Marseille is also your gateway to Provence. Explore the countryside around Arles and Avignon, as immortalized by Van Gogh, Cezanne, Matisse and Picasso.
Cruises from Barcelona make for some of the most unforgettable vacations you can imagine. Barcelona looks like a city that should be known for its architecture… and, naturally, it is. From monuments in Romanesque and Renaissance styles to Gothic spires and contemporary curves, there’s little surprise Barcelona was the creative playground of acclaimed architect Antoni Gaudí. But that’s just one reason why cruises out of Barcelona are so seductive. Barcelona’s a feast for the eyes and the palate, alike, and be sure not to miss the chance to try tapas as and visit spots like the La Rambla, Port Vell and especially Gaudí’s Sagrada Familia Cathedral. Fun beach bars overlooking the Mediterranean, sleek Spanish designer stores, and Gaudí’s surreal buildings make Barcelona, Spain a whimsical and unique place to visit. For a Mediterranean cruise, Spain is a great place to start — sample the good stuff on one of Carnival’s cruises from Barcelona.
