Carnival Legend is the third ship in the Spirit-class, which introduced some significant firsts for Carnival, including alternative restaurants and onboard wedding chapels. Spirit-class ships also offer an impressive 80 percent ratio of outside cabins.
In early 2014, the ship underwent a $47 million refurbishment in readiness for its debut into the Australian market. The major renovation added the Australian-only Green Thunder slide, Splashdown children’s waterslides and drenching bucket, Serenity Retreat for adults, Bonsai Sushi restaurant, RedFrog Pub and new Aussie beers (including the specially-crafted Thirsty Frog Summer Ale) and the Cherry on Top candy store. Australian power outlets were added in staterooms and Australian coin poker machines (slot machines) put in the casino. Other areas that were refurbished included the fitness centre to please Aussies, who like to exercise more than other nationalities.
With the ‘Fun Ship’ touches, such as an onboard golf program, duty-free shopping mall, video arcade, 1,800-square-foot (167.23-square-metre) children’s play area and ‘Green Thunder’, it appeals to young families and young Aussies after a fun time with friends.
Passengers are not allowed to bring alcohol onboard the ship.
