carnival legend

The 2,124-passenger Carnival Legend is part of the Spirit Class, and she’s a blast for everyone. From tropics-inspired fun at the RedFrog Pub to premium steaks and seafood at Alchemy, you’ll find it all on this cruise ship sailing from Baltimore.

When it’s time to rest, you can stretch out in a comfy Ocean Suite with an oversized balcony, or chill indoors in a spacious interior stateroom. And when your appetite returns, over a dozen amazing cruise dining options await.

Ocean Suites

On the Carnival Legend, Ocean Suites are a heavenly oasis with stunning views. These suites feature a large balcony with plenty of space to sit and sip your morning coffee or evening cocktail. They also offer a full bathroom, a comfortable sitting area with sofa and two chairs and an in-room spa treatment. All Carnival cabins and suites feature smart HDTV (infotainment system, on-demand movies, reservations/bookings/room service ordering), Carnival-logoed beach towels and bathrobes, individual climate control, a mini-bar, custom-made beds with the Carnival Comfort Bed System, a safe, and all standard cruise ship cabin amenities like a hair dryer and a shower.

Guests in suites have access to exclusive lounges, priority embarkation/debarkation/tendering and more. And if you want to take things up a notch, there are the Vista Suites with all the suite fixings plus a panoramic view thanks to a wall of windows, and the Grand Suite, which offers even more room with a huge balcony and a dressing area.

Premium Balcony Staterooms

Having a private outdoor space is always a big draw for cruisers, so Carnival offers lots of different Balcony rooms on their ships. These cabins also come with a bunch of perks like free breakfast and some unique ones like access to a special spa area.

Premium Vista Balcony rooms are located around the aft corners and have a larger balcony (table, 2 chairs, sun loungers, rail). They feature 2 lower beds that convert to queen, large picture window, stylish & sophisticated appointments and 3 closets. Some cabins in this category also have sofa and/or upper bunk bed for a 3rd or 4th person.

Some of these balcony staterooms are considered obstructed. If that’s a deal-breaker, consider booking an Inside guaranteed room or Ocean View guaranteed room instead. Those dollars saved could be used on an excursion or a few extra speciality restaurant meals.


The perks of staying in a suite don’t stop with the extra room, extra balcony and VIP check-in. Suite guests also get welcome goodies from the chef, afternoon tea delivered to your cabin, a bowl of exotic fruit refreshed as needed and upgraded room service options.

These deluxe staterooms feature more lounge-around room and a bigger balcony for kicking back in the sun or shade, plus all the other Carnival suite features like a full private bathroom, Carnival Comfort Collection linens and just-a-call-away 24-hour room service. They are located on decks 4 and 5.

This room type is designed to accommodate families, with two bedrooms that can be either double- or triple-occupancy. The perks of staying in this category include priority embarkation and disembarkation, a free bag of laundry (one per cruise), and an enhanced turndown service. This is one of the best values aboard the ship.

Grand Suites

The Carnival Legend offers two grand suites, which feature curtains that separate living and bedroom areas. Guests staying in these suites can look forward to a large balcony, whirlpool tub and dining area.

Carnival suites typically offer more perks than balcony cabins, though the perks vary by suite type. For example, those staying in an Excel suite on the Mardi Gras and Celebration can enjoy complimentary Bottomless Bubbles soda packages, a dedicated concierge phone line, guaranteed dining times in the ship’s extra-charge restaurants and priority cabana reservations.

On all of the line’s newest ships, suite passengers also get access to a private lounge that features exclusive events and amenities like complimentary backstage tours. However, in the past, suite guests on older vessels have not been able to enjoy this perk. In addition, Carnival’s suite-only perks tend to be more limited than what you find on Royal Caribbean’s Oasis and Quantum class ships. Unlike these ships, which have dedicated queues for suite passengers, Carnival typically only prioritises bag drops for those who have the Faster to the Fun package or are Diamond and Platinum loyalty members.
